In the Name of God...Kicked Out of Church!

"You'll Have to Leave..." As most of you know, I am half Italian. Some family members are very light in coloring and some of us are really dark. Same ancestors, different genes. Some also have very curly hair and dark eyes, though not all. One uncle fell into the "dark" category and was married to a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Richest Guy in Town-(BTW, I'll catch up with everyone later.)

You Never Know... I grew up in an average town, not extremely affluent, not desperately poor. The Dads went to work, while the Moms (most of them) stayed at home. Kids went to school. Eventually I figured out that some kids had a little more of everything than others. A few moms drove cars. Not mine... Sign in to see full entry.

"This is My Son..." (Not mine; theirs.) They were a sweet, older couple, who had left their home and property with a large farm on it when the Communists overtook their native country.

Family Portrait - Almost

"Those Were the Days, My Friend..." I had to do a double when I saw this photo. It's NOT my family, but we have photos that look just like this. What you don't see are those unspoken undercurrents that adults think the kids don't pick up on, but they do, somehow. There was always at leasst one... Sign in to see full entry.

Boy, That Smells Good! Or Not...

What's Your Favorite? Funny how a scent can remind us of something so vivid from our past. It can be pleasant (I happen to love Rive Gauche - the original, not the changed synthetic version of today), or not so pleasant, as is the case with our BigV and onions.

aka: "Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss " Our friend, GM, was curious to know more about the photo of the sculpture that I posted on Valentine's Day. So, GM (and anyone else who is interested), here's the scoop, and a photo of the entire sculpture. This should also shed some light on the meaning of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Who's Your Mama...

The Conclusion - Or Is It? (It's long but I didn't want to drag it out.) Part II The girl had been young, but not that young, in her twenties. She said she'd been dating a guy a short while, once or twice, and there was party; it was in the days of alcohol and drugs (like now isn't), and he, well,... Sign in to see full entry.
