Remembering the time mom and dad came to Virginia to visit and we went to Busch Gardens and dad was fascinated by the Loch Ness Monster and how it was welded. This was back in 1980.

Also remember the time he wouldn't believe how hot jalapeno peppers were. We had brought some peppers with us. One night at dinner dad decided to eat one raw. We told him they were hot but he didn't believe us. He took one bite and without saying a word he got up and went into the kitchen. The next thing you heard were iced cubes being put into as glass and dad getting water. He never said a word and never did admit to them being hot.
