祖父和灯火管制

分类:轻松英语   更新:2016/8/10   来源:本站原创

    一九一一年秋,我们从山东烟台回到福州老家去。在还乡的路上,母亲和父亲一再嘱咐我(2),“回到福州住在大家庭里,不能再像野孩子(3)似的,一切都要小心。对长辈们不能没大没小的。祖父是一家之主,尤其要尊敬……”

    In the autumn of 1911,we returned from Yantai of Shandong Province to our native place Fuzhou. While on the way, my parents warned me again and again, "Since we'll be living in a big family in Fuzhou, remember always to behave properly and never act like a naughty child. Show respect for your elders, particularly your grandpa, who is head of the family...”到了福州,在大家庭里住了下来,我觉得我在归途中的担心是多余的。祖父、伯父母、叔父母(4)和堂姐妹兄弟(5),都没有把我当作野孩子,大家也都很亲昵平等,并没有什么“规矩”。我还觉得我们这个大家庭是几个小家庭的很松散的组合(6)。每个小家庭都是各住各个的,各吃各的,各自有自己的亲戚朋友,比如说,我们就各自有自己的“外婆家(7)”

    After settling down in the big family in Fuzhou, however, I found that my previous worries on the way turned out to be unfounded. My grandpa, uncles, aunties and cousins

    never thought me a naughty child. We treated each other lovingly and equally. There never existed anything like "family rules of good behaviour". I also found that the big family was a loose community of several smaller ones, which lived and ate separately. They each had their own relatives and friends, for example, their own in-laws.就在这一年,也许是第二年吧,福州有了电灯公司。我们这所大房子里也安上了电灯,这在福州也是一件新鲜事,我们这班孩子跟着安装的工人们满房子跑,非常地兴奋欢喜!我记得这电灯是从房顶上吊下来的,每间屋子都有一盏,厅堂上和客室里的五十支光,卧房里的光小一些,厨房里的就更小了。我们这所大房子里至少也五六十盏灯,第一夜亮起来时,真是灯火辉煌,我们孩子们都拍手欢呼!

    That year, or the year after, Fuzhou began to have its own power company and electric lights were to be installed in our big house too. That was something new in our home town. We kids, wild with excitement and joy, ran here and there in the house at the heels of the electricians. Each room, I remember, had an electric lamp hanging from the ceiling. The drawing room had a 50-watt bulb; the bedrooms each a lower-wattage one; the kitchens each an even-lower-wattage one. The whole big house at least had a total of some 60 electric lamps. The first evening w
