L.    Looking back over the ages and climbing the Lin(d)field tree,

O.    On researching and hunting, good people emerge – though some we don’t care to see;

N.    Notable characters in all walks of life, though of some we haven’t a clue,

G.    Gentlemen born or butchers by trade, doctors, labourers, and pig breeders too!

S.    Some with families small or great, and with names we’ve never heard.

H.    How can it be that we have survived with genes from such a herd?

O.    Over the years their wives have cast a few more genes in the pot!

T.    Thinking it over I’ve come to feel – we really aren’t such a bad lot!

With apologies, Mary Offer.
