Rousse pays homage to shark-wrestling Finnish immigrant

It was a bad day: I lost my shoes (black patent leather Mary Janes), mislaid my headphones, and couldn’t face a bare-footed music-less walk home. To my rescue came Professor JM. She offered me a lift down the A1 with a stop-off in the fishing village where her Finnish mother spent her childhood. I paid homage to her mother’s bravery when JM showed me the fossilised shark. This was the exact same creature that her mother had wrestled with on the floor to victory when she was barely a lass.
