A place for Quattrones, Betteridges, and Praticos to share our family stories, history, and heritage.
Aunt Joanne sent me some reflections to two prompts for the blog:
What the Cousins Did Together
Funny Stories & Memories
I remember when I was sleeping at Grandmom’s, Aunt Connie was out, and so was Joe. Grandmom went to bed and I went to bed. Joe came home and went in the front bedroom and got into bed with grandmom. We were hysterical. Grandmom, laughed and said she liked sleeping with a man! That was a funny time with Grandmom.
I remember when Camille and I would decorate the house for Christmas. We would decorate Danny’s table for his trains. We put laundry detergent on the platform. Well, the hot water heater went and suddenly there was soap suds all over! I think my father was going to kill us.
This is a funny one. Joe and I were dating and my parents went out. They told Joe to make sure he stayed with Danny while he was taking a bath. Joe went up with the newspaper while Danny was in the bathtub. At that time we had the old fashion tub and no shower. So, Joe sits on the toilet to read while Danny was bathing. My brother decides to make a slide into the bathtub from the hamper and floods the bathroom and Joe’s pants and shoes. I said to Joe, “Now you know why he has to be watched!”
