|Wistrom kids, circa 1942.|
My Dad came from a family of eleven brothers and sisters. The eldest sibling was Beulah "Lee" Wistrom, who was twenty-two years older than my father. So here are some unintended consequences.
Pictured above are aunt Lee's three children, my cousins, (l-r) Virginia Lee Wistrom (1928-1994), Robert Arthur Wistrom (1930-1999), and Richard Linnie Wistrom (1926-1986). My dad was born in 1929, get the picture? My dad had nieces and nephews older than he was! And I had cousins the same age as my dad.
It was no big deal, really. My dad and Bob Wistrom were best friends. More like brothers. But it was a fun fact for them to startle friends with when they explained it.
