We find the large grandchildren a lot of fun but think they must be
throwbacks. My daughter is 5 ft. 4 inches and the father of the kids is
only about 5 foot ten inches tall. My wife has a brother who is well over
six feet, about 6'6" if I remember. Two of my fathers brothers were over
six feet. I'm 5'7" now, shrunk down from 5"8" and Miz Anne is 5'6" and we
have a son who is about 6 feet tall or maybe a couple inches over. Go
figure on the big kids. Must be nutrition or something.
