This is a polaroid photo of me and my brother Tom in the early 60's. I guess I used to fix my hair with curlers and hold them down with this "bonnet". It's a vague memory. I am certain Tom had to have made fun of it. He teased me relentlessly from sun-up to sun-down. I would like nothing more than to pick up the phone today to hear him say something "affectionately mean" to me in his distinctive halting speech. He talked like this.
My Mom loved this Nativity and she put it out every year without fail. She loved the holidays and especially Thanksgiving. Mom did wonderful impressions and she could gobble like a real turkey. No matter how much we would beg her, she would only gobble for us on Thanksgiving and no other time. In true show-biz fashion, she knew it was best to "keep 'em wanting more".
Here is a slide show of some of my family and friends whom I miss very dearly. (It is an incomplete list.... I am missing a few photos) I'll update it for Christmas!
I hope you have a wonderful Holiday. It goes without saying...(but I will say it anyway) I appreciate all of YOU. Thank you so much for your friendship!
