    • Excerpts from "A Family Named Hand" by Ethel Hand Armstrong
      ..."Frank worked for a construction company and his brother worked there too. He took a shine on me the first time he saw me, I guess, but he was several years older that I was. He was six foot four and it made me look like a little kid to walk beside him. He bought me my first bottle of pop. Every Sunday there was a baseball game in the park about four blocks from Clara's. They always went but they sat on the embankment of the railroad track and didn't have to pay that way. Of course, we went with them. Floyd went along too and the Kansas sun got along the track with no shade, so Floyd bought Goldie and I each a bottle of pop. I don't remember what kind he got because I had never had and didn't know what kind I liked or even what kind there was. After he came back, he bought him and mother one. There was a stand at the gate and it was only a little way from where we were sitting. None of us Hands had ever had any before so it was a real treat. Floyd asked George how he liked it and George said "If I had known it was so gosh darn sour, I would have broken the bottle but he drank every drop of it."...
