My Dad's brother Arny and I go back along way, when I was little, he would come into town frequently and tell me that there was a world beyond Walla Walla (where he also grew up). Uncle Arny had been to Europe many times, he moved to Seattle and became a successful attorney. That had to be exciting to my Grandmother Barer who was an unrepentant Perry Mason addict. He also ran for Washington State Legislature against Slade Gorton, who eventually became a United States Senator.
Many Dads give their sons cars for their birthdays, but last spring, Arny's kids turned the tables on him and gave him a brand new Lotus.
