  • Me and my childhood friend Jamsey


  • We look like or I look like I am doing sign language. lol


  • So nice to see Festina, Franny, Terry and Carol together and Jamsey!!!! Seems like you all had a great time.

    Happy 60th Anniversary Jerry and Nancy

    Hi Rosie, Patsy, Terry, Suzie and Debbie......

    I was in the mood to cook today, so I am making a chicken soup, and sausage and peppers.....Rosie, wish you lived closer, you could sure use some chicken soup with that flue.

    Have a great day...so warm out!!!!

  • Okay Judy,

    I like my sausage & peppers with plenty of cooked onions. I like my Chicken Soup with crusty bread. What time should I be over?

    Actually the best cure for the Flu is Canadian Club. if ir does not cure you you do not know the difference anyway. :flower:

  • judy may be a little sausage and peppers with hot pepper will do it [1 order please]

  • warren i remember the days when you came from a big family they used to straight the soup with hard italian bread to full up this was during 1930 to 1940 . boy it showed us how to save and leave comforable thank god .excuse my spelling i'll do the next past thing have a few canadian club i don't know the difference any way god bless you both

  • Hey Rose, My Mother used to make a big pot of Chicken soup (not too much Chicken in it.) and put in on the back of the top of the Coal Stove. It would cook all night and the next day and we would have it for supper with plenty of bread & Lambrechts tub butter. I can still remember the aroma and great taste...

    New Year, time for some "do you remember" stuff.

    Do you remember: Going to Park Circle on a warm Sunday afternoon and watch baseball on one of the many fields. A Good Humor guy would come by with a cold pack on his back with the Ice Cream inside. I Loved the creamcicles.

    Do you remember "stealing" a kiss on the Caterpiller ride in Steeplechase when the top came over the cars.

    Do you remember the line outside the bars on Sunday because they did not open until 1pm. A lot of men went right from Church to the bar...

    Do you remember Happy Feltons knothole gang TV show before or after the Dodger games...

    Do you remember the biggest threat your Mother ever gave you "Just wait until your Father gets home"....

    Do you remember getting a nickle for going to the store for a neighbor...(today the kids would say "what am I supposed to do with this".)

    More later... :wtf:

  • warren....i remember it well i played cyo basaball for st johns our church on 21st st.and park circle was the big leagues to us what a place 13 baseball diamonds in one park,

    as for running errands for the people in the neighborhood,we did that also...everyone gave a nickel,but we use to fight over who would run errands for fina leone and family they were always very generous 1o cent min, and sometimes a quarter, the leones warren are the terry angelos

    family and cousins who she visits with in florida.,,,as they say wonderful memories

  • warren my brother jerry said all.but life was mostlyhelping mom with family chores,my mom started to teach me to cook at the age of 10 years old.on my first ,i saidto mom how much salt do i use ,she said judy for your self so i put one quarter box of salt.i'm sure jerry remembers take care

    Patsy and Rosie, Hope you are both feeling better...

    Been so busy at work.

    Anthony - Where the hell are you???????

    Have a great day...

  • Sad day, taking down the Christmas tree & decorations. I did not have 1/4 of my usual decorations up but now I am trying to get everything in the right boxes. I have been accused of being over-organized. I have lists of every box (about 16) with each item stored in them. Now this year because of only using part of them there is confusion!!! Oh well, if that is the worst problem I have we would be sitting on top of the world. Had the car serviced ysterday, cost $220.00. Then I took Carol to Cheesescake Factory for lunch, another $35. It is one of the few restaurants where she knows exactly what to order and it does not upset her fragile system! Also stopped at the Brandon Hospital Business office for a copy of my Ablation Surgery paperwork. I know one thing. My surgeon did not major in spelling. As long as he knows what he is doing with my heart,I can live with him being a lousy speller.

    Think I will make Chicken Cutlets Paemesan tonight along with baked ravioli>... :chef:

  • GOOD MORNING, FRIENDS :)

    RAINY & WINDY.. WHAT A MORNING..

    HI JUDY..YES, THANK YOU. I FEEL BETTER, BUT I'M NOT

    PUSHING IT. HAVE A NICE DAY :-)

    HI WARREN..I KNOW. I GET SAD TOO WHEN I TAKE DOWN MY

    CHRSITAMS TREE, & DECORATIONS.

    HOPE YOU & CAROL ARE DOING WELL..THAT DINNER SOUNDS

    DELISH!!! :chef:

    EVERYONE, STAY DRY & ENJOY!!! :-)

  • Hello All,

    There is an Old Scottish saying. I am sure I do not have it exactly correct but here is the gist of it: "The well laid plans of mice & men are off times gan aglee". By late afternoon Carols insides were acting up so all I made was a Shake & Bake Pork Chop & some instant mashed potatoes for me and two plain Chicken Wings for Carol. The Cutlets & Ravioli will have to wait for another day.

    We had the rain & wind yesterday. Today seems to be shaping up pretty well but they are talking about some more cold damp weather coming up.One of my Grandchildren is being confirmed this evening in NJ and the family (my children & grandchildren) are attending. These are the times that it is hard being this far away from all of them. :geek:

  • Hey, I have not done a solo act since I sang solo once in my Church in NJ. Is there anyone else out there????

    Just a quick "do you remember": Do you remember the Easter Cross of Lillies in the Prospect Park Hot House and the line to see it stretched all around the building?...

    When the Williamsburg Savings Bank was actually in the Williamsburg Savings Bank Building, still a landmark in Brooklyn today?....

    Transfers on the Trolleys? You could travel all day for just one paid fare?.....

    The smell and feel of the cool air when you passed the RKO Prospect on a hot summer day?...

    When election day they had fires on every block in the neighborhood, right in the middle of the street?....

    When just about all people respected and spoke highly of Policemen in NYC?...

    More later :salut:

  • Hi all....

    Had a long day in the city with Kati. We went for a check up for her back. It's been 18months since her surgery and she's still having lower back pain. Dr gave her some anti-inflammatory's and wants a CT scan to see what's going on. Hopefully it's nothing.... 8O

    Hope everyone is happy tomorrow is Friday!!!!

  • GOOD MORNING, FRIENDS :)

    YES, WARREN...WILLIAMSBURG BLDG. (WITH THE CLOCK)IS STILL

    A LANDMARK.. IF YOU SEE WILLIAMSBURG TODAY, IT IS ALL

    CONDOMINIUMS. UNBELIEVABLE!! WOTH MILLIONS OF $$$$.

  • Patsy,

    i never would watch mob wives but I did this season. so stupid, so crazy but it keeps you wanting to watch. BIG ANG I knew from 11th avenue when i had my store. she certainly did not look like that when I knew her fro Secrets Bar on 11 th avenue.

    Renee lives right around the corner from me on Guyon Avenue. WHOPEEEEEEEE lol

  • Hi everyone...well winter has finally arrived in Chicago!! had 7 inches of snow yesterday & today & it's going to be 6 degrees tonite...Patsy & Debbie-you'd love it here...have to go to work tomorrow..off on Monday..Jessica & I are going to do some wedding "stuff"...anyway, everyone have a great weekend...talk to u soon.........

  • Good Morning All,

    Hi Anna, Wedding stuff a lot of fun...

    Well I am going to be taking it easy for at least a week.

    Missed the lasr step in my basement on Tuesday night. Feeling much better and able to walk but the Doctor said I have a very bad sprain. No Zumba for 2 weeks. Could have been worse. I think Umbria's computer is down so his daughter told me on facebook. He is probably busy doing his albums on his new machine his wife bought him. He is transferring them onto cd's so he can put his albums away. He calls me every week. Hope all is well. I may just run out for a dunkin donuts coffee rather than make a pot and just relax. Not used to just relaxing always running..

    Have a great day and all you New Yorkers stay warm while Warren is nice and comfy in the warm weather. lol

  • Happy Birthday Rosa (who is also warm in Florida.)


  • Thanks Patsy :wink:

    Anna you're right I would love it :thumright:

  • Terry, FYI Warren is NOT warm & comfy in Florida. The cold weather came back yesterday and this am was in the 40's. Now I know by NY standards 40 is not cold in January but here it is cold anytime! They are predicting a little warmer next week. We shall see. They lie a lot about the weather. As I have stated before, January is NOT a warm month in general in this part of Florida. No snow but it can get darn cold. At least no 30's or 20's like a couple of weeks ago predicted! I will admit that the beginning of this week was really beautiful and pretty comfy but it is getting even with us now. #-o

  • Hi Everyone,

    Well I have the best news ever, my daughter Crystal "GOT ENGAGED" last night...Her boyfriend Sal planned a very special evening with all the families included...He decorated a party room in the American Hotel in downtown Freehold that was fit for a princess...so romantic and beautiful and he invited the immediate families to be a part of it...we were in another room watching everything on video, we watched as they walked in and he got down on one knee and proposed, then the curtains were opened to unveil all of us being there...it was a very special night and I am so happy that we were all able to be a part of it. He has a wonderful family and I know my daughter will be very happy. I just want the best for them......

  • I will post alot more pictures when I get them..

  • Terry, I am wearing my heavy winter PJ's and sleep with a warm comforter and in the evening I am using a GIANT's cuddly throw that you can put your arms into. This AM it was in the 30's and further north the high 20's. There was frost on the grass when I went out for the papers at about 7:30am.

    I am going to pay a high compliment to those showing grandchildren pictures. They are ALMOST as good looking as my Grandchildren! :roll:

  • Warren,

    Mike bought me one of those blankets that heat up. I love it.

    It is really cold. Went to church and it was freezing. My windows had ice on them.

    Patsy,

    I like Renee and Big Ang the best.

    I will watch it cause it is entertaining lol

    I am making a gravy today, I am making chicken meatballs. They really are good. Trying to watch our calories because Mike joined Biggest Loser with one of the churches out here.

    Oh Boy He just called my tenants don't have heat in Brooklyn. He has to take 4 hours vacation time and leave work to go and fix the boiler. Oh well could be worse...

    OH. Happy Birthday Grandma Tessie Angelo in heaven. Wow,,she passed in 1967 and two weeks later my Grandpa died. 1967 Where has time gone???? I remember we had a big snow storm in 67.

  • GIANTS......GIANTS.....GIANTS

    Those phony announcers on pregame on FOX all picked Green Bay to win except for Michael Strahan, he picked the Giants. After the game that was all forgotten and they acted like they all picked them!!! Th refs allowed Green Bay to play dirty and did not call fouls on them. One time a Giant player drops Rogers as he released the ball and they hit him for roughing the quarterback. Also the NO FUMBLE call which everyone thought was a fumble but the refs said no, he was down. Sounds like a conspiracy against the Giants but they won anyway. Rah... Rah... Rah... =DB

  • Warren,

    I wish I knew something about football but on facebook everyone was complaining. FUMBLE FUMBLE FUMBLE AND CURSING THE REF OUT LOL

    Good Night Sweet dreams

  • Good Morning,

    What a weekend...so tired....can't believe I have to work today...would of loved to stay in bed all day....LOL

    Terry - Hope you are feeling better, maybe its a sign for you to relax a little.

    Anna - I may need some tips on "planning a wedding" LOL

    Still don't know the date yet, hopefully they will let us know soon...just need to know if I have months or years to get ready...LOL

    It is cold out there today...keep warm...

    Haven't heard from Patsy, hopefully you have off and are relaxing...

  • HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUZIE!!!!! HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY


  • Happy Birthday Suzie and My son Jonathan.

    Where is Patsy????? After lunch with the aunts, uncles and Cuzzies I will call her.

  • Happy Birthday Suzie & Jonathan. :jocolor:

    Hope you both enjoy the day and many more.

    Wore some of my Giants clothes to the Super Market & Walgreens. Many people green with envy. Carol thought I would end up back in the Hospital yesterday, I was getting too excited. When the Giants got some bad calls by the Refs I said some words that I did not learn in Sunday School.

    Was pretty cold again this AM but this afternoon it warmed up nice. :geek:

  • Hey Patsy,

    You are missed. Hope you are feeling okay!!! :roll:

    So busy at work, it really sucks...I need to retire...LOL

    Have a great day..

  • Silly me. I tried to upload a picture of me in my Giant Snuggly blanket.-no go. Then I tried a picture of my Giant "shrine" on my lanai.-no go. Maybe I will make it my Avatar or what ever they call it.

    Was sunny all morning but now some needed rain. Carol feeling lousy again. She only gets one or two days feeling good and then BAM it hits her digestive system. Next week we will see the Gastro Doc and see what he has to say...Also I will see my Cardiologist and see what he wants to do with me. I saw my family Physician the other day and the only change was to try Claritin for my sinuses along with my Nasal spray. I must admit it has given me a little relief. Has anyone heard from Anthony or Joe??? :roll:

  • Warren Love the profile photo..

    My Queen Jeanette feel better. I miss you much..

  • It's TGIF. Oh, I forgot, evryday is TGIF for me since I retired! Getting psyched about Sunday night. I think it will be a great game and may the better team win. (As long as it is the Giants)

    Seeing the snow storm in Chicago reminds me of why I am here in Florida. I have two pictures under glass on our server in the great room. One is of me and the other my dearly departed friend and neighbor shoveling snow which is up to our shoulders. Just finished the driveway and guess who is coming? The guy with the snow plow to bury us in!!!!

    I miss my kids, I miss my grand kids but I DO NOT miss the snow. (nor the leaves in the fall) :geek:

  • HI WARREN...I DO HOPE THE GIANTS WIN, TOO!!!

    ENJOY THE GAME & AGAIN, I LOVE YOUR SNUGGIE..

    NOW IT IS MY TURN TO ASK..

    Terry...do you remember the donuts from Bingo, they looked like a round cruller with jelly in the center? Kati got one the other day from Mike's Donuts on 5th ave and it took me right back.....

  • Oh Deb..Just one day back to those times. Tuesday nights with all the left over soggy hot dogs and donuts.. They were so delicious. Big Nick and Margie the BINGO CASTAPOS . LOL

  • For those who know the Catalano's from 22nd street..Judy and Richie asked me to post this...

  • MY DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO THE 'CATALANO FAMILY'

    MAY HE R.I.P.

  • Happy Birthday cousin Natalie,

    Have a great day...

    This what life is all about celebrating the good things in life.

    We are celebrating Mario's 12th birthday today at Lori's. Love these celebrations because my Dad's brother and sister's come to share the day. Can't wait to see My Uncle Chubby and Augie today.

    Have a great day and stay warm....I know Warren will be arm with his snuggle blanket lol

  • Terry, As soon as I get off the computer I am heading for my Giant suggly. Not too bad outside but in the house is quite cool. Florida houses are built to keep the heat out not in! Had a poor day and night and today I am only 50%. Hope whatever I've got leaves me soon. I want to enjoy the roast beef dinner Carol is preparing and then tonight watch the Giant game. With all the different ailments I have and the different pills, I never know what is causing me to feel crummy. I did try Claritin for a few days and maybe that did not agree with the other stuff I am taking. The Doctors said I could take it for my sinus problems but who knows???? My sinuses have declared war on me. I use a spray twice a day but lately it is not enough. I have a bunch of tests and Dr appointments coming up so I sure would like to feel okay for all of that.

    How much snow did you guys in Bay Ridge, Staten Island and NJ get? When I spoke to my daughter in Dumont NJ yesterday she said her husband was out shoveling about 5-6 inches. Meanwhile yesterday afternoon here was about 75 degrees and sunny. :-00

  • Warren,

    Not too much but enough...The bad thing is it melted somewhat and now it is cold and got to be careful walking very icy. Probably be down in April I love Florida in April..

    Hope you feel better..I am still waiting for this foot to be completely better. Does not hurt but still sprained...

    Have a Great day and I guess I should say GO GIANTS. LOL

    I DON'T KNOW A THING ABOUT FOOTBALL...

  • hi every one how is anthony doing ?pat are you enjoying this snow ?i'm eating like crazy well take care every one, t'm going to make a meat ball hero. you want to join me [any body]god bless you all .

    Happy that everyone is happy the Giants won.

    Have a great day....

  • N.Y. GIANTS

    There exists a team called the Giants

    They have fans, haters & clients

    Luck plays a part in all sports games

    The Giants have bad & good luck in names

    The ref’s don’t like them & their calls show it

    When I see a bad call I have a big fit

    Through all this they are back on top

    They cleaned out the NFC without a mop

    Now comes the finale, the big Super Bowl

    I root for them to win with heart & soul

    But if the Patriots should end up with a win, oh my

    I’ll still love my Giants with a tear in my eye

    :cheers:

  • HI WARREN.. LOVE YOUR POEM!!

    HI CUZ.XX
