The Non-life of Riley – Chapter Two

I arrive in Newfoundland and eventually find my sons but I get myself into trouble almost immediately.

The Business of Non-Living.

For those of you who haven’t had the experience, and I expect that’s most, perhaps I should explain a little about this business of non-living. When I last left you I had just decided that since Eric was doing much better, I would go visit my other sons in St. John’s. Now you have to remember that I was very new to the business at the time and didn’t understand much about how we ghosts, as you ‘living’ like to call us, get around and consequently ran into a wee bit of trouble. I’d first thought of my eldest son John and in an instant, I should have been standing next to him in St. John’s but since I hadn’t yet learned to ‘box’ my spirit compass, I found myself standing next to a John Riley in St. Jones Without! Now it’s been said, that it’s an ill wind that blows no one any good and it proved to be true that day. John it’s seems, had been checking his rabbit snares, when he’d been captured by three Beothuk Indians, as the natives of the island were called. Since there was constant fighting between the fishermen and the Indians at the time, John appeared to be in very hot water – that is until I turned up. The Indians took one look at me and took off like a scalded cat! John, who hadn’t seen me, must have been quite bewildered by it all. I expect the story circulated for years both in St. Jones without and the neighbouring community of St. Jones Within.

I Scare My Daughter-in Law

My next attempt was more successful and I found not only John, but his two brothers, Sam and Tom all in the process of “putting away” the day’s catch. I was pleased to find them all working together and admired their skill. I watched with pride as Sam headed and gutted the Cod, while John split the fish like a master craftsman. It was then Tom’s turn to wash and later salt, codfish bigger than any I’d ever imagined. It was obvious that neither of them could see me and at first I looked around for some way to help. I soon realized the impossibility of such a thing and decided to take a look around. The wharf was well built with a fine stage and storage shed, besides the big dory, there was a smaller one and a punt. I decided to look further and entered the big house on the hill where I found a cheerful and robust young woman humming to herself, as she took several pans of freshly baked bread from the oven of an old wood stove. I had moved to a chair by the table when she suddenly looked up and I knew at once that she could see me. Her face paled and with a shrill scream she ran out the door and down the hill, collapsing in John’s arms. As she described who she had seen, all three men looked at each other. “It be the old man sure enough”, muttered Sam, “he must be dead or dying I reckon, but why did Rebekah see him and not one of us"?

A Fisher Ghost!

Rebekah, I soon learned was John’s wife having arrived from England less than two months ago, they had been married almost immediately by Rev. Hibbs, the also newly arrived Church of England parson. I learned too that both Sam and Tom were expecting brides from England, maybe on The Irish Princess expected in about ten days. I felt badly for having scared my daughter-in-law on our first meeting but since I appeared to have no control over whom saw me or when, there was nothing I could do about it. Rebekah refused to return to the big house alone and elected to stay and wash the fish leaving Tom free to salt the catch. I listened proudly as John consoled his wife telling her of the fine gentleman his father was and that she had nothing to be fearful about. “Probably, just wanted to see the good looking woman I married” he smiled. Rebekah was unimpressed, “fine gentleman or not” she stated, “if I can’t see him in person, I don’t want to see his ghost, especially when I’m alone, and if he insists on staying I’ll expect you to take him out in the boat with you, maybe he can help get you home through that pea soup fog we get around here”. A fisher ghost, I though, now that might be interesting!

Ghosts are not to be feared, and if we listen to them, they do have a story to tell. You definitely captured this point in so many ways.

Thank you Sherri. Most people have the wrong idea about ghosts. Riley is a good example.
