When asked how he would be getting home,we were surprised to hear he would be hitching,so we offered him a ride. The next day, Ernie took us to the cemetery, where his Great Grandmother was buried. After the cemetery we visited the niece of Leon and Annie George. On our journey to Johnson Bay Landing Ernie told us many stories of his childhood. After showing us where his grandparents used to live we made our way home. The following morning, over breakfast, we asked if he would like to have his book published, as his story needed to be told.
