In June the stovepipes in the house caught fire. Mother was home alone and the stovepipes fell down, and the flames got onto the curtains and started to go up. Mr. Miles, a neighbour — The Young Man: Saskatchewan, 1928-1939 "a cool hand Luke" if there ever was one — came along in time to put the curtains out and help Mother. She was just in an hysterical condition, almost, by that time. Well then, in July a cyclone went through the yard. It almost wrecked the house; it took the roof off a barn that had just been built in 1928; it took every granary that we had and blew them away.
Then, it seems, at a very early age, without my parents being aware of it, I started chatting up the girls on the local telephone exchange, much to their amusement. But the development that caused most concern for my parents was my early schooling in Gaelic from the Hebridean fishermen who came around to Invergordon at a particular season of the year to fish in the North Sea. Father and Mother were quite impressed with the progress I was making in picking up this new tongue until they found out from local enquiry that the words being learned were the richest swear words of the language.

The house was trembling and the front door started to bend, and hailstones were coming in at the top and my dad took the kitchen table and put it from another doorway across to the corner of the door, and he lay on top of it and he put his hands on the door to try to keep that door - and it was a strong door - from bending and letting these hailstones come in.
