FiresOn a hot Saturday afternoon when I was about 6 (1919 ) , Phillip's (one of our near neighbours) chicken house went up in flames. My brother Charlie, Laurie Nicholson and I had been over there looking at the chickens, and so we got the credit for lighting the fire. I know we tried to put it out with a dipper and pail. We went to bed earlier than usual with a sore behind each, that night. I know I didn't have the matches, but I was the oldest.
