Hi Margaret,
saw your post re the miners poet.

In a recent conversation with my kids re. stress in the work place. a line from one of your grandfathers
poems came to mind, something like-----

"can you blame a guy for sitting (with a smoke ?)
in the kitchen , where the roof is safe and sound"
etc

we agreed it must have been extremely stressful to be a coal miner.


I went looking for a book of his poems I bought some years ago, and can not find it.

is it possible---------------

to buy a copy of this book, or,
if not, if you have this poem, would you
possibly e-mail it to me///

Hello Margaret, I googled Danny Boutilier's name  and came across yours . My name is Janet Quinn{Atkinson} and I am from Springhill.Your grandfather used to live in the house right behind ours. I was just wondering where all his children are now. I can remember Catherine and Arnold. I am sixty-four so I grew up with Danny's kids. Would love to hear all about your family and where everyone is now. Janet
