Jason loved the windmills.
“Imagine the ingenuity!” He would exclaim to me.
“Hundreds of years ago, the Dutch drove back the seas and used the wind to do it! And they wasted nothing! The same pumps that would push back the water made their paint and their chocolate!” He marveled.
Every week he would go and watch the last of those old engines operate. He particularly loved the one that made the paint.
They were making yellow the day he fell in and was crushed by the gears. To this day My kitchen is painted butternut in his memory.
