This may be one of my Dad's tall tales, or I may remember it incorrectly.
My Dad spent quite a bit of time in Army hospitals during World War II. His
favorite nurse later married Harmon Killebrew. I kind of wonder about the
story, since Killebrew was fourteen years younger than my Dad, which would
have made him 8 years old at the end of World War II. Since it's likely
that the nurse in question was about Dad's age, she would have had to rob
the cradle. I didn't do the math until today, just believed what Dad had
said. I've always had a fondness for Harmon Killibrew because of Dad's
gratitude toward his wife, even though Killibrew frequently pounded out hits
that helped the Twins beat my Tigers.
Dad isn't around any more to quiz about the details. Either I remember what
he said incorrectly or what we've always fondly said about my Dad is true.
Dad was never one to let the truth interfere with a good story.

The other day I heard that Harmon Killebrew was ill and didn't have long to
live. Today he died at age 74. Jim and I heard him speak at one of the Fan
Fests that the Mariners have in January. I hope the Ms are doing well.
Sometimes I hear about them but not every day.
