I remember when Debbie and I was real little before he married Erma my Dad would pick us up at my grandparents house and we would go to these apartments and spend time with him. Then after he married Erma my Dad came and got Debbie and I so we could meet Markann,Penny,and our twin brothers ( Danny and Dennis) we all went camping at Calico ghost town.
