The Lovenest

"Silver Donald Giving Up Lovenest" shrieked the headline in Frank magazine, our local scandal sheet in Nova Scotia. Wow! Hugh Hefner wannabe nabbed with Another Woman? Is Silver Donald a bigamist? Is the lady in question a married woman?

Well, ahem. Well, yes,she is. Her name is Marjorie Simmins, and she is married to Silver Donald Cameron. The juicy story turns out to be pretty tame. We’re selling our big house in Cape Breton and keeping our small one; we don’t need the big house because we’ve been spending most of our time in Halifax since 2006.  Why the move? In part because I had some apparent health problems, now mercifully behind me, and in part because Marjorie is a freelancer who finds it more congenial to work in a city, and also wanted to take some futher education. So I moved for love — of Marjorie. All true, but the story is not what the headline would suggest.
At the time Frank called, we thought we had the house sold — but the deal fell through. Want a lovenest on the water in Cape Breton? Call me now!
