She took out old picture books that I'd seen before, but now she told me the stories behind the faces. She tcld me that her brothers, Chichi and Lucho, were practical jokers. That her sister, Nena, loved to sing. That it was her little sister's fifth birthday the day she and my dad were married and Chachita thought their wedding was her party. She told me mat her father loved opera and would listen to it on the radio as he worked in his . locksmith shop. That her mother " worked hard to stretch the family income to meet its needs. My mother said that where she lived the adults seemed to know all the children and to whom they And that the children belonged. knew they were being looked after (and mat reports of any misbehavior would reach home faster than their denials).

Keith and Joan came to Milfbrd from Wisconsin in 1967 because of a mining offer. When Keith told investors that he didn't know the first thing about mining, they answered, "But you are honest." He continued in pursuit of mining interests as a sideline until the mid '80s when government regulations got out of hand. After retirement, it is unlikely that Keith and Joan will spend much time in their rocking chairs.

When my mother came to America forty years ago, she felt she had to make a choice of which culture to raise her children in. And I would not have taken any of the childhood my parents gave me. But I would have added to it. I would have added a second language, because a language is more than translated words. It allows you to understand the heart of a culture. I would have traveled to my Aunts and Uncles and had my Panamanian cousins visit me. I would have had my mother tache me her songs-ato- ng with my dad's Hank Williams favorites.
