Robert took his kids traveling from coast to coast and north to south when they were young. They learned history, geography, customs of Native Americans and American history. They will never forget the travels.
Had a joke for every occasion. Did them in various dialects. He was never afraid of the long joke. The kind that took five or ten minutes.
