"My mom, Doris (Earl's wife) told this story: When he was a young boy, Earl (Torgne) brought home a friend. His mom, Hilda, asked the friend if he'd like some milk & cookies. Thinking to be polite, I suppose, the boy said, "I don't care."...Grandma didn't give him any milk & cookies. I took that story to heart & all my life, I've never said, "I don't care." unless I REALLY don't!!" - Jean Barnett nee Roberta Jean Hjort (Earl's daughter)

Earl was born in Canada. His original name was Torgne Lindbloom (I've also seen it spelled "Torgve" & "Lindblom"). His father died when he was young, and his mother eventually moved to Minneapolis, MN & married Nels Hjort. Torgne became Earl Hjort. (No middle name).
