My mother is the eleventh of thirteen children. My Grandma and Grandpa were German through and through. Linenberger was the family name. I had as many moms and dads as I could stand. Uncle Victor use to say if you don't turn out Ok,it's not your fault. There were too many cooks stiring the pot.
We have lost several aunts and uncles in the last few years. We have a Linenberger family reunion every June in my hometown of Washington, KS. Last year was the 50th reunion. We had over 250 people there.
A great time was had by one and all. We don't know how much longer we will be blessed with the remaing seven so we cherish the time we have left.
