My Mom has stories she would love to share. You will get a kick out of her wit! So, look for her in the coming days.
Here is a picture of my Mom at a Portuguese fair in 1951, she was one of the Portuguese princesses. My Nana gifted my Mom with the heart jewelry. Pretty, huh? One of the hearts is still around the house, somewhere.
(The Portugee’s have the fest, every year, even to this day in Portuguese Catholic and Crypto/Jew communities. They celebrate the ‘old country’)
