Well my dad was half Swedish, his dad was full Swede. His dad and mom immigrated to the US in the early 1900's. Their names are on the wall at Ellis Island. They settled in Minnesota and my dad's family moved to Texas when he was in junior high school all the way down to the Rio Grande valley. I'm native Texan, stand 6'4" hence the moniker Tallswede. lol. Really I'm a regular Heinz 57 Texan.
