For 44 years, brothers have hit the water
When the youngest of Frank and Grace Carlson's 11 children was just six months old, tragedy struck. Frank died, leaving his wife behind to care for their children on their farm five miles south of Hastings.
That's when Grace Carlson rose to the occasion and laid down the ground rules for their children, nine of whom were boys. She insisted that they all get along. That's was that.
Apparently, they listened.
