In Lueta, Romania, there are so many people with the surname Mihály, that each got a different nickname. There were Kútis, Szőcss and Eleks, too. My grandpa, Domokos Mihály, because his parents were living in the house number 10, became Domi number Ten. He was the boss of the shop in Lueta, worked as a miner, so he got a fairly big pension. He bought a TV for each room in his house, so that when we visit him there would be something to watch. He called my family every Sunday exactly at 12 pm. That was the only way to keep in touch with his loved ones. Altough his passport was valid till 2056, he left us this Christmas. Rest in peace, old man.
