Re: Corbin_Dallas

Oh, what a shame that you didni't eperience a gathering with all of your aunts and uncles. And on both sides! Yes, it must have been wonderful to be with Joe Love and his family, they must have been a great group, and how nice you got to enjoy their gatherings. I'm glad you and he had that time together. I've met people who never experienced family gatherings.

Re: BC-A

Well, I suppose being Italian can cross ethnic lines. Thank you.

Re: overtherainbow

Oh yes, I lived it. And, deep down, I loved it - because I loved them.

Re: FSI

Yes, I saw a bunch online, and they all resembled each other.

Re: Pat - It was fun.

We had no idea about the "richness" of our upbringing. We were all very dramatic and talked with out hands. I still do! Thank you.

my favorite sister in law was married to an italian, and yes everything you described. their fights were and still talked about by my sons.  my brother in law would pack up his family in lower east side manhattan and come to our house on staten island on friday and leave on monday and that went on for years. he was constantly cooking, there was card playing, drinking and of course fighting and of course all my italian neighbors were invited.

As someone who is part Sicilian, this does remind me of the old family photos my father has.

I never had a family gathering like that......even though I had 11 aunts and uncles on Mom's side and 13 aunts and uncles on my Dad's side.....neither side really didnt have gatherings......I was blessed with the family atmosphere when I was accepted into Joe Love's family.....every weekend there is some sort of gathering and I'm always invited, enjoying every minute of it......

Thank you RP. Reminds me of a kind of happy reunion.

I used to wish our family was Italian - the ones I saw were so

close and warm, and they had such great food and music. The kids called their grandmother Noni and none of them could talk without using their hands.  Loved 'em.

Thank you. Hope all can see it now or the post is rather pointless!

I guess was-is the world over. I suppose it would not be appropriate to show ciggy ends in one of todays photo. I am afraid I cannot open the symbol or whatever its called. I'll come back and see if anyone else has. I do hope that you feel better.
