We spent a lot of time with the Karls growing up. Connie is my mom's sister and her husband, Uncle "Pudge" (George). Kathey, Barbara, Georgia & Christine. We spent the night at their
house, or them at our house a lot. They lived at 2716 Union St. most of our youth and then to E. Washington Ave. Today they live on South Ct.

Grampa & Gramma Hessler lived next door to them for a while. I remember visiting them a few times. There was a girl who was about me and Chris's age who lived across the street Teri
Simerson. Don, Bill Polly and a younger brother Roeth lived a few houses down across the street. Don drowned in Law Park, lake Monona when we were in high school. Across from the Roeth's was a kid
who was confined to a wheelchair, Larry I think, and the Pechems (Ann) next door to him. They boy in the wheelchair died in a bus accident. Apparently he was not secured properly in the bus.
The Karls had lots of animals. Besides the two dogs, Pepper and Brutus, they had Squirles, Raccoons, rabits.
