Throwback Thursday - The Notebooks

The gentleman without a hat is my mother's father. The tall gentleman
in the back is Dad's father.
To clear up some confusion, the Notebook passages posted on Throwback Thursday were written by my father and found by me after he passsed away. They were his attempt to tell the family history. He was in his late 80s or early 90s when he wrote them. Today's chapter:

Every weekend on Saturday afternoon and Sunday afternoon, Papa would have his friends come and they would play cards, drink wine. He made wine every year up to The Depression. Mother made the sandwiches with Italian bread and cold cuts.


  1. sounds like a great weekend for family and friends !!


    waves two ewe ink...hope ewe R doin grate ♥♥☺☺

  2. Ink waves to the Tabbies. Doing just fine. A nap is calling my name

  3. Those were the days! When men dressed in suits and ties and hats just to go play cards with their cronies. I think we've lost out style since then, more's the pity.
