dad & fish & i


when i was a kid, certain people's names stood out.

among them were:

Pinky Legg
Seymour Legg
Patty Hamburger
Oakree Kuckenbacher
Tommy Thomas
Belagi Aluwallogun (or something)

Pinky was Seymour's daughter in law. Seymour founded a dairy equipment dealership.
they sold surge brand equipment, among others.

Pinky's husband was it's manager or something, and then owner.

Patty was Pinky's daughter Judy's best friend. (both were my babysitter on occasion)

Oakree was a schoolmate. my dad told me he was a third or something because HE went to school with an Oakree Kuchenbacher.

I find out later in life his last name meant "cookie baker". (doh)

i will leave Belagi alone since i don't know how to spell her name.

i used to go about with my "pinkie" finger extended when they would visit... and say "pinkie is here, pinkie is here"

i know, i know, i KNOW i was strange little kid...
