Compliments of the Day

Don't eat too much, turkey, and remember that punctuation counts.

That Time Already?

     Yep, today is Sofia's birthday. Five years and getting feistier all the time.

     Happy birthday, Baby.

     This is my younger daughter Kristine and her husband, Jacob. They have given me permission to announce that they are expecting a baby at the end of May. We're all very excited, of course. It's too early to tell what gender the baby will be, but if it's a girl the name they're set on is Klara.
     This will be my second grandchild. The other, Sofia, is my girl Stephanie's daughter. She'll be five on the 24th.

     Also, please don't mention this on Facebook. I guess they're saving that for themselves. Thank you.

Throwback Thursday

Annapolis, Maryland, 1950. I would be about 2 1/2 years old. Why I'm running around in the yard in my skivvies is anyone's guess.

Throwback Thursday

     The Servidio Sisters plus one. This is my mother and her sisters sometime in the 1930s, plus one woman I can't identify. Upper left is Sylvia, upper right is my mother Gloria, and lower left is my late Aunt Peggy. There was a fourth sister, Nancy, who died when she was 12 from polio, but I doubt she's the fourth member of this group.
     Sometimes they spell their name Servideo, sometimes Servidio, and no one seems to know which is correct. The translation is roughly Serves God, so I prefer Servidio.
