The first celebration this week was that Jacob Alexander turned 100 DAYS old.
Look at that adorable smile and try not to return it.
What a joyful little guy!
The next day, on March 15, would have been my father's 100th birthday. The Ides of March is a day in history, so it never slips by quietly anyway. Its hard to imagine that my father, Wasyl Nahorniak, was born before so much world history, and as a Ukrainian born child, lived in the midst of much of it. The stories he told could make a great movie.
Here is a bit of history from his hometown. Sniatyn 1918 - 1939
I keep trying to see his face in those photos.
Dad died in 1991, leaving me an appreciation of history, geography and current events. When I look back, its easy to know why. Thanks Tato!
The blog is really notes to my friends, old and new, to let you know what's going on in our lives. Its also a diary of sorts for myself. It started at the farm in Ligonier, PA, hence the name, but now life and work has moved us back to Connecticut,
I've always taken lots of photos and sent postcards from everywhere we travel, just to keep in touch. Email took over and then the digital camera.
Instead of me plugging up your email, you can check in when you have the time.
And yes, another town with the same problems as any other!!!
Please enjoy and let me hear from you...really~
