In Response to Re: Gale-your town! : Hi Vicki that sounds like fun writing a book for children.how far a long are you? Are you going to have it published? Have you written any other books for children ? I have yet to watch or read any of the Harry Potter stories..When we were little my dad was great at making up stories about Indians,His main character was about an Indian I asked him what his name was and he said Joe Charlie! he would go on for an hour or more if we wanted to hear it.Joe Charlie liked to drink coffee with milk and sugar and the name of the coffee he drank was called a "Ranger" when I think back to him telling us these things it makes me smile.He was such a sweet man,He was Hungarian,born in Hungary.I used to love to hear his stories about Hungary and his horses.He told us storks would built their nests up on top of their roofs.my father was older when he became to myself and my brother he was 48 with me and 51 with my brother.if he was still living he would be have been 104 on the first of April.I'm going to see if I still have a picture of the type of house he lived in when he was a boy.I wish you luck and success with your writing.

Hi Gale! I'm silly! I guess that I thought you had probably read my intro when I joined. Yes, it's fun but It seemed like it came so easy to the lady that wrote the Harry Potter books. She would just go to a coffee shop and drink coffee and write stories on a napkin if she didn't have paper. I don't really care about trying to publish it but we'll see. I just mostly thought it would be fun to read my own to the library kids that I read to for story hour twice a month. I thought since I had to quit being a physical therapist and now on disability for my bad back that it was something to fill up time. I'm used to working on other people not myself! And my back doesn't let me burn off all the extra energy I have so it's alternate between physical and mental so maybe it helps me sleep better at night. Harry Potter movie was ok but you have to have a free imagination. I only saw one.
I think you must have had a very nice mom and dad. You have such good memories. Sounds like your life was nice with your siblings too. Did you all fight very much?
