When we were younger my mother didn't buy much "junk" food either. When Bill and Uncle Frank would come north for hunting season Bill would bring a couple paper grocery bags of Hostess junk. Bliss! Of course he would make up gruesome stories of accidents at the factories while were were eating them. A great memory. I loved Hunting season Uncles and cousins would come stay for a spell and the house was fuller and everyone lively with the cold air and snow. Glad the kids enjoyed the treats. And he is right he was remiss in his duties!

Thanks for sharing those memories Julie! We especially appreciate stories with Grandpa Galbraith (Uncle Frank) since the children and I never knew him!


Three cheers for happy childhood memories of delicious junk food!!!

You learn something new everyday. I didn't know that my dad had gone hunting up north with Grandpa. I'm sure that was an easy assumption, but it never really occurred to me. I am honored that I was able to know Grandpa, even if I don't really remember much.

I only eat Twinkee's with fresh strawberries and whipped cream on top. I had WAY too many of them growing up. I do miss my dad's ability to get me unfrosted fruit pies though, and may have thrown a very large party when Ding Dongs became available in my area!!

love you and miss you

Heidi ask your dad if he remembers stumbling upon a guy sitting on a hog tied deer on Uncle Tim's property. I still tell that story every year. It is too funny.
Uncle Tom got chased around a corn crib by a bull one year.
I've been thinking lately that some of these stories should be written down soon. Maybe I'll add it to my project list.
Heidi I remember when you were born your whole family was so excited and Uncle Frank and Aunt Judie were so happy.
Bridget, I know they are looking down on your wonderful family very proud of you all. Sometimes I look at your kids and I see you and Kevin but, you can really see uncle Frank in a lot of their faces.

I will ask my dad :) I love hearing stories like that.

You have no idea how much you remembering that the family was excited for me means! It is so wonderful to have a large family :)
