The picture was taken in the mid-1960's.

This nickname was actually formed in the southwest, actual place is unclear, kinda sounded like grandma was refering to Miss/Tenn/Ark area, when I talked with grandparents, they explained to me that it was a term used when 2 people married who was related but was so far removed that their only relationship was by geneology.
And yes Elvis made a song about it, kinda funny that he made that song and he is from the same area in which the saying supposedly came from.

Pee Wee, for those of us interested in the history of Airstream and the WBCCI, your knowledge is so unique. I wish I could be in Bozeman to to meet you and hear your presentation regarding the history of Airstream. I can not attend International this year, but I will be seeing you and attending your presentations at the Texas Vintage Rally to be held in San Antonio in early February of 2009. I am really, really looking forward to meeting you, asking you questions and hearing you recount our early history.

Thanks for coming to Bozeman and sharing with us. Beth and I attended both the VAC discussion and your forum at Brick Breedan. Your mother provided us all with a tremendous gift - the club. We need to do our part to recognize the heritage, fellowship, and adventure the club offers. Thanks for help increase our understanding.

I'm Completely new to airstreams and to actually have a blood relative to Wally on here is just awesome. I am just honestly in AWE of this. Peewee, I have read many of your posts and your pictures are truly a blessing you are sharing this information with us. These posts and history will be told by me to my kids around campfires and while driving down the road.

Could I have an autograph? It would be an awesome thing to have framed and placed in my Airstream.
