"We were always excited when Jackie, Uncle Jack, and Aunt Marge were coming over.  To me, his arrival meant FUN and lots of laughs.  He and my older brother Jim had a way of getting into mischief.  I can remember a 4th of July when Jackie blew hole in our pool with a cherry bomb....Aunt Marge was not happy.  We thought it was HILARIOUS!"
