I remember all the famous card games, all the yelling,laughing cheating going on. And Aunt Elsie one of the best at this his.

I remember staying with Elsie and Bud in Brea, California. She would play Jeopardy with the television program and I was so impressed she always got the answers correct. I was lucky if I got four or five per program correct.

We used to go and visit with her and Uncle Bud every weekend. Mom doing laundry and both of them cooking. And both of them thinking they were in charge.

When I was 4 or 5 years old, I was a big Davy Crocket fan and my sister Elsie bought me a Davy Crocket hat. I never forgot how excited I was over that hat. I am 69 years old and still remember the excitement in receiving that coon skin hat.
