How: 
My father James (Jim) Frew Blair was born on Westham in 1893 but moved to Lulu Island in 1894. He returned in 1946 when he bought the Philpot farm and brought his family (wife Nellie, daughter Dorothy and myself. I married Win (nee Cooper) in 1950.
History: 
My grandfather, Wm. Blair came to Westham in 1887 to work for James Frew. He married Frew's sister Catherine, their housekeeper in 1892.

Embarrassing & yet proud occasions: The 1054 annual Delta Cow Testing (DHTA) banquet & field day... situation: The chairman asked for introductions by each person introducing the person to their right. George London stood up and introduced me as the "latest proven sire". Sharon had been born just a few days earlier.

Life: 
Westham is a great place to farm and a wonderful place to live because of the neighborliness of the people. I worked for the BC Department of Agriculture for 14 years and then retired to Vancouver Island.
