Personal Notes:
Uncle Pan had a friend named Rene who spoke little English, but lots of French. One day someone knocked on Rene's door, and when Rene opened the door, he smelled something cooking, and asked what it was. Rene replied " my wife is chokin' some potatoes"! Uncle Pan was always ready to "Choke potatoes and scramble eggs" at breakfast time. Rene's mastery of English is also the reason that starting the generator at the duck camp is called "electrocutin' the camp"!
