James wanted his turn at mowing the lawn and Pamela wasn't going to stop for him. Remember this was in the days of the hand mowers luckily for James, who thought he'd stop Pamela by putting his hands into the moving blades! There were enough screams for all the neighbours to hear and how James came away with 10 fingers and a bit of blood and a few scratches, we'll never know. One very lucky little lad!
Marie: And yet another story!
It seems to be a trait of the elderly to tell stories and often repeat the same stories. As our family has a major Reunion in February 2015 I will tell a family story each day and NOT repeat it for 100 days. I will use christian names from our earlier generations as pseudonyms.
