Other Stories ... of Inez Buchanan
I exended an invitation to my siblings and other family members to take a few minutes to share their fondest memories of Dad, and in the case of the younger generation, any stories of him that they can remember hearing. The story by Gloria Burns was a delight to me when she told it to us. Another story from that time on Uncle Dick's farm concerns Dad's sister Inez. One of the Burns girls locked the outhouse door while Inez was inside, then ran around chanting "I locked Inee in the toto! I locked Inee in the toto! I locked Inee in the toto!" It was a long-remembered story of a prank by a small child. This one was remembered by Inez, passed along to her daughter Bev, who told it to me. Bev also told me about the concerns that Inez would be taken away and put up for adoption. Emily Burns also asked Bill to let her have Inez, so she could raise her with her three daughters. But Bill refused to allow his family to be broken up.
