Summary - The contributor's family history; spirituality; a successful amateur operation on a leg.

The contributor's mother's mother, Granny Beck, was a herbalist. Granny Beck's mother was the daughter of a minister. Her forebears therefore had more exposure to the gospel than most Travellers. The contributor's grandfather came from a wealthy family, but ran away to join a circus. The contributor's mother's sister, Auntie Teenie, was another saintly woman. As a girl Teenie had a bone disease; her father insisted that her leg was not to be amputated and operated successfully on it himself.
