One memory I will never forget. I went to school when I was four years. The small children sat on a mat on the floor playing with blocks. I put one in my mouth behind my teeth. The teachers tried to get it out with no success. The principal came along and had a go and eventually got it out. I had a very sore mouth. One day playing hide and seek in the barns, I caught my finger in a fish hook. Someone tried pulling it back. A man came along he tried pushing the hook on and cut it off when it came out, then pulled it out. I put my finger in peroxide kept it there for some time and had a dressing. I seemed to be always in trouble.
