In anticipation of Norine's birthday, I was considering which picture to post on facebook in recognition of the event. When I logged on this morning, there was a message from Rose Kramer:
Did you know that when we lived on Drakewood Dr in Oakley, Pop drove GAN to stay with me for the day and we would sew? At exactly 4pm he picked her up again. Her goal during lent was to make a garment a week which she accomplished easily. By then we had 3 Scardina girls and Mary Beth to sew for!!!! Love you, Rosemary
I know the following picture is fuzzy. I "extracted" it from a video taken in 1957 when the family came together to celebrate my First Communion. Norine is toasting the occasion with a glass of wine.
Although the picture may not be clear, her happiness is. So here is a toast to you, Norine, on your 126th!
