Happy Easter!

When I was 3 (in 1948!) the pediatrician told my mom that I was too shy (at least that’s her story). So she enrolled me in Mrs. Maston’s Nursery School (in the woman’s own living room a couple blocks from our house. That wouldn’t happen today!) It was lots of fun and I met several kids with whom I would even graduate from high school.

For Easter she gave each of us one of these paper “windows.” And here it is: almost 3/4 of a century later! (Again, with religion being the sticky issue it is, this would not happen today.)

I still love it!


Happy (politically incorrect?) Easter!

    Hi Nancy,
    Nice memories your childhood. My mother died 10th February, 94 years old. On that day she had breakfast, lunch, as usual she slept the early afternoon, slept and without any noise she stopped breathing. No pain. She had wonderful life, exactly 20 years ago my father died in age of 76 years, also no suffering. I will be the next, my brother in age of 60 years, I am 66 now, I cannot believe it.
    All the best for Easter.
