Lately I've been thinking a lot about my family and our family stories. For no good reason other than that, here are three things I'm sure you'll enjoy learning about my relatives:
1) During the Great Depression, my paternal grandfather had a steady job . . . working in a bank. My maternal grandfather was an out-of-work steelworker who rode the rails everywhere, looking for a job. Rumor has it he had a second family in Mississippi.
2) My father was one of the first people to be certified in scuba diving in the U.S.A. He also had a pilot's license. I never knew him to scuba dive or fly a plane.
3) Both my brother and my sister married people named C.E. Miller.
