I remember the 1939 World's Fair. Aunt Martha and Aunt Bertha took me with them to the fair. My grandma wanted to go on the parachute jump.  The young man that was there told her she was too old to go. She called him everything you could name. All in German.

I remember Aunt Martha used to take a kitchen towel and hit my grandfather across the head with it. [ed. note My mother explained that Aunt Martha would do this because Emil would march around the house and salute.]
