As a child I remember my family and I spending a lot of time at Aunt Loretta's house when they lived in the country.

She could always count on Rick, Tim and I getting into mischief; like the time we decided to cut into all of the watermelons they had grown to see if they were ripe.

I remember all of us kids complaining because she made us a lineup for a picture at Christmas time. It usually took more than one, she had a habit of cutting our heads off in the picture

I remember Aunt Loretta always called me Susie.

Aunt Loretta try not to get into too much mischief with your brothers Johnny (my onry dad) and Donald we wouldn't want Grandma chasing after you guys with the broom.
