My folks had ten children. Since my sister Paula and I are the youngest, for years we have caught a lot of flak (kidding) about the folks waiting seven years after brother Dick to have me and another six years to have Paula. The older siblings thought the folks should have stopped having children a long time before that. So, I felt a need to set the record straight. I told them I found a notebook buried in some of dad's personal items. In there is the explanation for the so-called madness. You can read it here.
