Family skeletons, theremin's and lizards! Oh my! ;)
A family fact of mine is that my Grandpa was a POW in Germany for two years. He was made to eat soup out of his shoe and beaten regularly. When he was freed and came home he had such terrible nightmares he'd try and strangle my Grandmother until he woke up and got out of that post traumatic stress disorder state of mind and realize he was safe. Do you have anything in your family history that you want to share?
