Former U. S. Rep and Vice-President Dick Cheney would often tell this story about how his last name is pronounced.
He says he attended a family reunion some years ago and sought out a favorite uncle who was the oldest person there. The old man was sitting in a rocking chair with a gentle dog in his lap.
