Saturday Carolyn called and was in Oregon and went to see Dave and Judy. They took her over to see Grandpa and he was excited about the Calendar you guys made for me for my birthday. We sent him one for his birthday on the 14th. He was happy to see them and they had a nice visit. Carolyn may need to verify or correct this but Grandpa told them a family history story.
Mary Ann said that Carolyn said that Grandpa said he could remember as a little boy, sitting between his dad and his Grandpa and they were singing a song in a different language. He asked them what language it was and they said Welsh. He said they both had excellent voices and he wished he had a recording of them singing it. That would have been George Stanley James (his Dad) and John Jenkins James (Grandpa). I have pictures of both here in Loa.
Did you know that we have some Poems that J J James wrote? You kids come by your good singing voices and ability to write Poetry from both sides of the family. Daddy showed me one of J J James' poems but it was in Welsh and I don't remember if their was a translation. Remind me to look them up for your Christmas family history gifts. We might make copies.
