I said Double brother in law. Elmer has been a family fixture ever since I met Sherry. Elmer was married to Sherry’s older sister Lennie. Cancer took Lennie away from us, we miss her. Kat passed away after about five years with Elmer. We miss her also.
This is Elmer with his last wife, MY SISTER KAT. Kat was married to her first husband for over fifty years.
That is the story of the double brother in law.
I started to ask a silly question, should I make the ramp temporary or permanent? Before I asked it, I decided it would be permanent since Elmer is in his 80’s now, he can use the ramp from now on.
Story about Elmer.
After Christmas it was a tradition that Sherry and her sister(s) and we husbands would take a trip. That was before the motor home. We ended up in Little Rock Ark for some reason at a motel. I had already got settled in bed. Our rooms were adjoining . Sherry heard Lennie scream, “He is going to kill him! Help!”
Now it is hard to get your clothes back on in a hurry but I tried. At the time Elmer was around 60. By the time I got outside Elmer was walking back toward his car from the farther direction. The motel manager with him.
What had happened was, Lennie wanted something from the trunk of the car. Elmer went out to get it. After he raised the trunk, from nowhere a man stuck a pistol in his side and said give me your wallet. (AT that time Lennie who was watching from the window, started yelling when she saw the man and gun).
Elmer, being Elmer, said, “Boy, I’ll make you eat that gun,” and he grabbed it. They wrestled a little and the man got his pistol loose and ran, with Elmer in hot pursuit. Of course he outran Elmer, being a young kid of about twenty. It done no good to tell Elmer he was crazy. His only answer, ‘I worked hard for that money’. (He had done the same thing before, when a man tried to rob his business.) I still today cannot believe he got away without being shot. But he didn’t. Elmer is one of a kind.
Thanks for coming by the log.
