Still, the oddest thing I've seen in a long time was a brightly painted circular staircase lying on its side in a neighbor's yard.

My family is like this. My grandfather was born in 1890, my father in 1929 and me in 1964. My father thinks-but is not sure-that great-grandfather was born in 1865.

My grandfather was born circa 1890, my mom was born in 1919, and I was born in 1961.

My father was born in 1915, but I have no idea when my paternal grandfather was born. All I know about him is his name, that he had red hair, and that he abandoned my grandmother and their nine surviving children sometime in the 1920s, leaving them destitute. They were lucky not to starve.
