My dad was never an artist. He was into history & law. My mother was in medicine. My sister was in a financial background. My mother wanted me to either be a doctor or a spanish translator.
My dad was a trim/finish carpenter. My mom raised kids (duh!) and ran a boarding house during WWII. My 3 brothers work with wood, 1 is a construction, um , coordinator, meaning he makes sure the house gets done for the contractor. My other brother is a fine cabinetmaker and soon will have a school teaching furniture making, he claims, and my other other brother does a lot of remodelling for bigshots in Indiana, some of the Eli Lilly family and others of that ilk. My younger sister is an engineer, I am a scientist, my other sister is a teacher in FL. My two oldest sisters raised kids, one had triplets. Other was a librarian. think thats everybody.
My dad was in the Navy WWII. He went to Guam, after the marines had, um, liberated it, they built a hospital, and then they were the staff of the hospital. He was a medical aide. Says they went over on the Indianapolis.
