Flashback Friday! Inside Jokes!

My Family has many the inside joke! We all love to laugh and why not laugh at each other in the process, all in good fun of course! There are 5 of us "Holler" kids and I would say that my lone brother Jack is perhaps the most notorious for the start of several of our family jokes. Today I will share one of my favorites. First there must be a slight back story. Both Jack and Alyssa had little trouble when they were younger in school, it just didn't come as easy for them,while Janna and I had both managed to do ok.

Jack must have been oh maybe 1st or 2nd grade (not really sure), and my mother was sweetly tucking him into bed when he looked up at her and said "Mom, how come Janna and Marylin are smart and from Dad's side of the family, and Lys and I come from your side of the family and we are, well, you know?"

I am not really sure how my mother (whom is not dumb in any sense of the word) responded to the inquiry of the young lad, but ever since it has been a joke in our family! Anytime one of us acts a little um "you know" then we are from my Mom's side of the family and if we are "smart" than we must have surely come from my Dad's side!!

That is pretty darn funny! I don't remember seeing a picture of your brother. There is definitely a "Holler" look. Is it the smile, the eyes? Holla!!!
