But becauseHelen thinks it had an important influence on me, I'll mention it briefly. The simple truth is that Mother andDad were two of the most quarrelsome people who ever lived together. I loved them both dearly, andthey were two wonderful individuals, but they were always at odds, and they really only stayed togetherbecause of Bud and me. After we were grown, they even split up and went their separate ways for awhile. During the war, for example, Mother moved to California to work in the defense plants.
