Two Brimstone Matches

A story my dad used to tell regarding great uncle Arthur Nevard. July of 1949, Arthur had gone to Regina to stay with his brother in law, Eddie Edwards. Eddie's wife, May, had recently died and Arthur went to stay with Eddie for a while to keep him company and help out where he could. Apparently it did not go too well. Arthur was heard to comment at a later date that he and Eddie were like "two brimstone matches". Arthur had stopped in to visit Jack Goff in Lipton on his way home and must have related how the visit went. Jack later commented to my dad that "Harthur says he's been in hell".
