Uncle Rudy story

Okay, so to understand this story you have to know that markgritter's family is Dutch-American, and Uncle Rudy was from a part of Michigan with a lot of Hollanders (though he was himself the son of Czech immigrants).

Mark and I had gotten engaged, and Uncle Rudy came up to me at the next family gathering with a sly grin. "I know why you're marrying this boy," he said. "Oh yah? Why's that?" I said. "Every summer you'd hear us come in from outside and say, 'whew, it's hotter than Dutch love out there,'" he said, "and you, you just had to find out."
