I'm Just Sayin'
MY SHORTER WRITINGS
by David Muise • 162 pages
FUNNY, MOVING, INSIGHTFUL, Muise’s enthusiasms portray the decent man he was. His greatest joy is to make us laugh, with advice gleaned from advisors at Tim’s or country music song titles guaranteed to pull anyone out of depression!
Raised in Ashby, Sydney, Muise shares growing up in the 1950s and ’60s—rock-and-roll, miners’ vacation on the Mira, circuses, bobsledding. And his admiration—for honesty, for heroes like Terry Fox or the Nathansons of Whitney Pier, for his parents who raised 9 children on a steelworker’s wages—points the way to a better community. Fruitcake wars, Chasing the Ace, the dreaded Man Cold, and so much more!
Lawyer, mayor, member of the Nova Scotia Legislature, storyteller, volunteer, proud Rotarian who lived their motto “Service Above Self”—David Muise gives us a portrait of Cape Bretoners at work and play, creating a good world out of friendship and respect.
