They were married here in 1947 but as my dad was still in university studying to be a teacher, they couldn't afford to raise a family just then.

    Finally in 1952, my dad had a teaching job and it was time to have a family. Names? My mum didn't want a name that could be shortened, (Robert to Bob, Edward to Ted,etc). She wanted a single-syllable name. Her first choice was Paul. That was just way too Catholic for my dad. (Got to remember where they came from and the times to appreciate the context).

    Soo, back to the war. They met at a dance hall and American big band leader Glenn Miller was what they danced to and voila! Glenn, spelled the American way, not the traditional Scottish way, Glen.

    Regaled now? I thought so.

    Lisa my friend, anytime you need a story made longer, you know where to find me! :-)

    Regards,


    Glenn
    Yup...… you weave a wonderful tale!

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.
