THIS is how I remember the kitchen at Grandmas' house, except for dad sitting OUT of a game? Seems like that never happened!
(Jerry emailed to say they might have been playing 31, where "Out" is part of the game, so you got to watch others play while they teased you about going out...lol)
Can you name all the adults there? There's only one I don't recognize--the guy to Grandpas' left. (Jerry said he's Herman Barton, somebody who helped out at Uncle Leo's place and often came with them to Grandmas house. According to Herman's WWI draft registration, he was born 15 May 1886. He would have been the man that we were warned not to disturb when we were at Karashs. We were told he was mean to kids, but years later, Aunt Fronie told me that he was hard of hearing, and they just didn't want us to bother him. It worked...lol Thanks, Jerry!)
It's fun to see a picture of Uncle Leo, huh?
One of the few times he wasn't wearing a hat outside,
and you can see he's about to laugh, or tease
We all pretty much adored Uncle Leo,
and Uncle Tader wasn't bad either!
Remember the Polish word Uncle Leo usta call
Aunt Fronie? Mah-RUN-sec...lol
