1946 - Terril Years


My father's name, stitched on his work shirt back in Ringsted, was PeeWee, but now it had Thor. His family members back in Ringsted always called him PeeWee. For many years I didn't know why but after he died I found a childhood photo of him with his 5 older brothers. He was at that time the youngest, shortest, and smallest little brother, hence PeeWee, that must be where the name came from. Ironically, he grew up to be the tallest one in the family, but he was still PeeWee to them.
