Same one I used last week, and if it gets ignored again I'll use it next week. Comment, dammit!

Happy Birthday, Stephanie



My older girl Stephanie.  From this...                  

...to this. Still beautiful after 26 years.

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.
