Stories of Earl Brinkman by Robert J. Brinkman - Family

Noise, noise, noise
Grandma Brinkman was born in the US.  She returned to Austria, now Slovenia, when she was a young girl and came back later.  She was born with one hip socket which left her with a short leg and a limp.  This didn’t stop her from having fourteen children, however.

When my mother married my father they visited Milwaukee on a driving trip to see customers.  Of course everyone got together to see Earl and his new wife.  All these big German guys made so much noise yelling and kidding with each other that Mom went into the bathroom and cried.  She just wasn’t used to so much noise at a family gathering.  Must be her side of the family, although also German, wasn’t quite as loud.  She used to say that her dad wouldn’t say shit if he had a mouth full.
