5803...Happy Birthday Sorta Newfoundland

The Dominion of Newfoundland celebrated Gordie Howe's birthday in 1949 by ceasing to exist.

It was on this day that Joey Smallwood's dream came true.  Newfoundland became Canada's 10th province.

Only took three referendums to get the answer that Mr. Smallwood wanted.

Some party today in Fort Mac I would be thinking.

    Only among those who don't know the history.
    Read "Don't Tell the Newfoundlanders", if you'd like to understand.
