‘Klap Van De Molen’ (Hit by the Mill) is a dutch saying like ‘have a screw loose’.
Actually, no kidding, such accidents happen easily – it happened once in my ancestor’s family on a mill near The Hague : the miller’s wife was lifted in the air by one of the sails…while hanging the laundry to dry – I was told years ago by my father.
Take the right door , Rita – the assistant miller and wife of miller Johan Slingerland – is explaining to the visiting children – the entrance on the opposite side of the rotating sails. The miller’s family is living here in the Putmolen water mill in the Aarlanderveen polder around Alphen in Holland.
