      Podle mych znalosti vejminek neni (vetsinou) samostatna budova, nybrz mistnost nebo mistnosti, ktere muze stary hospodar (s manzelkou) obyvat v synove dome, na ktereho budovu prevedl.
      Slovo "vejminek" pochazi od toho, ze si otec v prevodni smlouve u notare <>vyminil<>, ktere casti domu muze vyuzivat (mistnost k bydleni, kuchyni, zachod, koupelnu, pokud tam byla, apod.) Jinak se totiz stavalo, ze syn si od otce nemovitost vzal a pak otce (a matku) vyhodil s tim, at si otec jde kam chce, jeho ze to nezajima.
      Je to dukaz toho, ze na vesnici vubec nepanovaly idylicke pomery.
