This is fun! Dad's dad was Harry, and Mom's dad was Alphonse.

That's right, Alphonse, born on May 6th, I was lucky enough to be born today. If I had been 2 days earlier, what do you want to bet I would have been saddled with Alphonse?

My Grandpa was Elias, which I think is a kickin' name.

BTW- Christopher and Megan are perfect names for parents and grandparents.

I already told you about Wilmer. Wilmer Wayne Wennih..... Winnie was the nickname. Also my dad's nickname in the Navy.

If I had been a boy my name was going to be Wayne Barclay Wennih... Thank you, God. Thank-you. (Barclay a maiden name)

The other grandpa was Charles, aka Chuck Smith. He married Eva Brown... Her parents were the Greens.

Are you picking up on some criminals in the background? I thought so.

We have NO idea. NONE.

My maternal grandfather was Nils, but called Roy for some reason. His brother was Hjelmer.

My paternal grandfather was Earl David. (lots, of Earls on that side of the family, 'cause we're a little white trash)
