In Verdals Historielags Årsbok för 1950 {Verdal’s History Book before 1950}, there is a small story of Nils Sandnesset, born in 1810, who lived on the barren place in Sandnesset.  I have taken the liberty of copying it below:

He was witty and playful,tralla og song” {hummed and sang}, but was often hungry.  He never complains, but he “let berre vel” {lives very happy} .  He planted potatoes one spring, but in 2-3 weeks he began to take them up again.  He could not do without them any longer.  But that did not bother him.

One time he was doing road work.  When the rest of the working crew sat down and ate their food, Nils went away in the forest and hid himself, and when he returned he said: “nu hi ä etti mä så diger, at ä e knaft god te å arbe” {now I have eaten so much that I am hardly  going to be able to work}  (Nils had no food and consequently had not eaten).

Nils had care of the family mountain hay one time.  He pulled a hay toboggan, and the snow conditions were difficult and he became completely exhausted on the way to Ådalsvollen.  People lived there and he stopped to rest.  He got a little food, and then he became active again so he told them of his qualifications in eksersis  time.  Then he left pulling the hay toboggan again and they heard him singing far into the distance.  - Nils told 3 sildhau  about his difficult mountain trip one time. 

One time he was on business in Hegge in Verdalsören to buy pepper.  But Nils could not remember the name. - He explained to them that it was “no rundt og svart som hagel og skull brukas te å ta bort görsmaken ti pölsen” {round and black like small buckshot and is used to remove the sour taste in sausage}.

As an old man he was involved with the covering of the completed "Skjippbrua" or "St. Olavs bru " {St. Olav’s Bridge}.  Some officials were examining the bridge.  Nils, who had an empty stomach as usual, quickly went to the eastern end, set himself down on the bridge and wrapped his legs around his neck and he rolled himself like a ball over and over across the bridge.  On the west side Nils jumped up and said “Gjörrå mä denne ätte, di karra” {Go ahead with your eating, you guys!}  The astonished gentlemen gave him a reward for "oppvisninga” {his exhibition}, and that was just what he needed because he was then able to buy some food.
