    We liked the lack of trees on the prairies and stayed here once we got here.

    We were straight outta Kentucky...
    For which I'll be eternally grateful.

    But you know, Kentucky was once western Virginia territory...

    My mother came through Maine from Nova Scotia Canada and my dad's came through Windsor? from Ontario and from Germany to Ontario. Before the internet I had never met anyone with my last name...turns out there are hundreds in Canada all decended from that one guy! There's a river in Germany with our name.

    It was strange to see their names on a document- Mom was 14, one of 7 children. Grandfather came for a job in Pgh.They brought one maid with them...who was not allowed to stay on the same floor with them in the hotel until my grandfather made a huge scene. She got to stay with the kids. She married and settled in Pittsburgh, became an excellent tournament bridge player, husband owned a car repair shop.
