  1. Wow, Claudia, your picture brings back memories. I have a picture of this vintage of me and my two sisters, wearing matching capes that our mother made. We are in front of a huge azalea bush that is blooming in the same color as our capes. In case you are not aware, there is a huge park in Palatka FL that is planted with azaleas. It is one of the few hilly places in this area, and the azaleas cover the hillsides. It blooms from about Feb 15 thru the end of March. Worth a visit if you are missing spring….Chris V


  2. I was somewhat disturbed by the comments you made on my Good Morning blog that there was negative content on my blog. I have been blogging for at least 10 years on WordPress with more than 8000 followers and never had a problem. I sometimes write from my iPad and their word suggestions can be quite strange, but I usually alter them or cancel them.


    • That is why I felt it necessary to let you know. It was not within the content of your blog. I enjoy your blog and admire your writing. The other option was to ignore and not comment. Unless I’m having a really bad senior moment others might would have seen Norman too. I apologize for causing this distress. Feel free to delete my comments. Claudia


  3. I’ve recently been doing some research into my paternal mother’s grandfather, whose name was Alfonso De Salvo and who was a tailor in New York to mayors Fiorello LaGuardia and Jimmy Walker in the 1920s. We have his pocket watch, replated in nickel when he sold the gold off during the Great Depression.

    What you mentioned in one of your posts caught my attention, and I was wondering if you had any more information about your Alfonso? I’m betting it’s the same one.

    • Maggie,
      My grandfather was a tailor and named Alfonso. The business was in Manhattan although they owned a home in Mount Vernon. What was your mother’s first name I’m assuming her maiden name was DeSalvo.
