The “dork” for “hork” incident!
This was one of my more “memorable” events from my younger years - have told the story for years.
Truly fascinating to see it in Mom’s words, in her diary, just as I’ve told the story. Wow! What fun!
Sunday, April 17:
To church on time. Had Tom baptized. Got along O.K. Dad had to hold him of course. To Leo’s to dinner. Ham & yams in basement. Stayed for lunch. Karen played horn & piano. Home & straightened up & went to bed.
Kelton said Jimmy says “dork” for “hork.” (fork)
This was Easter, I’m sure, with Tom being baptized. The “in basement” notation was significant because they (Leo’s) had remodeled their lower level with a second kitchen, including a breakfast nook, as I recall. The formal dining room was still on the ‘main’ floor.
I also remember this as the day Leo noted that he got a ‘diamond stickpin’ for Easter which he was wearing in his tie. Seemed to denote success in his bank clerk life.
But the big ‘take-away’ was young nearly 4 year Kelton saying that 5 year old Jimmy was saying the word for ‘fork’ wrong, saying it wrong as well, himself.
Ah, the memories… ;-)
