Men Continue to carry on the Tradition !
Listen to what they have to say and be proud you're a HATTON !
My name is Ernest A. Hatton, I will be Sr. one day. These are two of my kids.. to be. The other one who grew up to be a sailor is no longer with us. Anyway, I'm three years old and this is a Prussian Soldiers outfit that my mother made. As you can see by the look on my face I am a dangerous fighting machine. Man this flag is heavy. My grandfather and his brothers were all Prussian Soldiers. Do you like my side arm? It's a neat pistol but it can't shoot..so I guess I'll have to throw it at the enemy, whoever that is...anyway I'm ready! ....86 years old and well.
Gordon Sr. and Ernie Jr.
Look, you in the Army outfit, I'm just a little guy and I'm only part Irish and Prussian. I got a lot of English in me and I don't want to go to Ireland because GGGrandfather Gallagher wants me to clean up that mess, and Prussia, well that doesn't even exist anymore. Are you listening to me ? The jist of this conversation is I don't want to go to war and I'd like some kids clothes. Do you know what they're saying about us in school? If I didn't carry my BB gun I have more bruises then a tomato that fell off a grocery truck!
Ernest Jr............Yes Sir I'm ready for battle! Do you like my salute Sir? I've been practicing it for a couple of months. Yes Sir, this is a new outfit, a cross between a couple of different countries, I think. Oh, my two year old brother, he's not joining up. Seems he messed his pants on the last raid and can't get the stains out. Grandmoms making him a really neat outfit. It has two holsters ! She's supplying him with a lot of caps and BBs, so look out Hitler!
To my brother Gordon William Hatton Sr. above...God Bless, we love you and miss you !
Buried Mildred, Penna. with the rest of the Family.
