All da pieces

This term is used by my mother, Mrs. Myrtle Brown (formerly of Winterton and St. Jones Without) and my father, Willis Brown (formerly of Joe Batt’s Arm). Both say it was and still is used in these places. It is used to describe something that has gone wrong (perhaps the lantern being broken) or to describe someone who is not feeling well but doesn’t really know what his illness is. It would be said in the following way, Jack’s feelin’ all da pieces today and won’t be goin’ fishin’.
