Family Reunion

Here we are in South Dakota in 1959 with my Grandma and Grandpa Hanle. Every August, my Mom's side of the family, the Heckel's, have a family reunion, I think still to this day. This was only one of two that I can remember ever attending. This was around the time your Dad was "out-to-sea" with the Navy and we had parked our little 8' by 27' mobile home at G'ma and G'pa's mobile home park in Ohio for those months. You and I were there for about a year before your Dad was then stationed at Oceana, Virginia. I often remember my G'ma commenting on my little ears when I was just a kid. She said "tiny ears were a sign of stinginess". So, whenever I have a feeling of not wanting to share something of mine, G'ma's image pops into my mind !! It's strange how certain comments from people in your life remain with you all of your life.

That wasn't such a nice thing to say to a grand daughter! My ears stick way out and are kind of big and I'm VERY stingy!!!! It comes from being an only child and never having to share my things.
