    I also spoke to my favorite pain in the ass Anthony in the hospital. He is one tough guy ....so stubborn ....and wants the nurses to serve him filet mignon instead of the supposedely healthy crap they're serving him....LOL

    Ive been so busy....my Dad pulled something in his back last month and cant pull my Mom up anymore or put her in the wheel chair by himself. So, me and my Sis have been going together and rotating days to take care of my Mom

    He is another tough guy he is 82 and went out into the yard and didnt come back in for awhile....my sister went out to check on him and he was tarring the 1st floor roof...unbelievable! MEN!!!!!!

    I hate to say Im not gonna be able to make the Reunion ....I have 2 Weddings in between watching my Mom.

    maybe next year....

    Ok ....gotta run... today is my day off and Nicole has 2 Sweet 16's to attend...today and tomorrow .....still so much to do to get her ready.

  • Hi Everyone:

    Where did the time go. The summer is almost over. We are looking forward to the reunion and catching up on all the gossip.

    Kenny and I decided that since we did nothing this summer but wait for our grandson to arrive we should pick up now and go to Vegas. I hope its coooler there then its been here.

    Suzie it was so good to see you back here. I tried to catch your sister the other day to see how everything was with your parents but as usual she was rushing so I left her alone. I'm glad you gave us an update on them. Its hard to watch them slow down and not be the way we remember them. Just be strong.

    Well,I guess I will see you all soon. LOVE..........

  • Hi-thanks Joe for the great pictures..hi to Patsy, Suzie, Donna & anyone else I've missed...let's hope this blog never dies...I only wish I could come to the reunion and meet everyone I've spoken to ...although when I got on the blog in Jan.2010 I didn't know anyone, I do feel like I have family on here. Donna-enjoy your vacation..it's gonna be a long cold winter....well everyone enjoy your 3 day weekend-stay safe...........bye

  • Hi Patsy, Donna and Anna... I dont think this blog will ever die (unless the Administrators pull the plug of course) We have a bond to our old neighborhood and how we grew up. Its pretty special...

    Donna ... have the best time in Vegas.....Win Big!

    I have to run and pick up Nicole....so Im saying Goodnight

    and have a beautiful weekend!

  • Hi everyone

    Getting nervous we only have 100 people for the reunion and I guaranteed 200 cause we turned away 40 the last time...

    If you know of anyone who is coming and did not pay remind them.

    Nice to see ya Suzie you are missed.

    Hi Anna...thanks for keeping the blog going with a few of the others...

  • Hello All, Just got off the phone with Anthony Umbria. He is as a few people mentioned, back in Methodist Hospital with Heart problems and a Fungus Infection running through parts of his body. He gives his regards to all and said that most of you are not too far from the Hospital and he would enjoy a visit from any of you. Seems a little lonely.

    His phone number to his room was in the blog yesterday. If you can not get there to see him, I am sure a phone call would be appreciated. :-k

    Terry, I mentioned the other day that a day or two before you left Florida, there was a clip on Channel 9 at a street fair in St Petersberg. There was a woman in that clip jumping around that looked an awful lot like your pictures. Were you at that street fair??? :?:

  • Me again. Just to remind you that Anthony's number to his room is 718-780-6729 :thumright:

  • W T C....The Way I Like To Remember It.

No Jerry Lewis-& only 6 hours long..when I was young I would stay up all night & watch it...times sure are changing.......enjoy the rest of the weekend......bye

  • Jerry sorry to hear that. You're daughter will be in my prayers.

    Patsy and Anna.....I can't believe after all these years the telethon has changed :roll: Jerry Lewis was the whole show!

    Warren....I may be in that area this week and If I can I'll stop in and see him. I'm gonna call tomorrow but I won't mention going there in case I don't make it.

    Judy.....I'm certainly going to miss being there this year 8O

  • Jeanette must still be on the beach lol We should see her as soon as it gets cool.

    Patsy thanks for always checking on my.... :wink:

    Hi to Terry, Karen, Suzie, Joe, Mary Ann, Fred Helen come back!!!

  • Hello All, Happy Labor Day. If you are off, enjoy the day, if you have to work, try and keep up your spirits as you see the rest loafing and having a good time! :roll:

    Jerry, Thanks for the kudo's. I feel this blog has a very definite place in peoples lives. I find it very dissapointing that many people have deserted and gone to F.B.. I see nothing wrong with being on both but I do think it is a shame that so many have sort of forgotten their "roots". :(

    Sympathies on your Daughters Fiancee. Unfortuneatly Cancer can strike at any age and in many cases little can be done. Carol & I are both Cancer survivors and consider ourselves very fortunate. The medical field has made some progress in treatment but the fatality rate is still much too high.

  • Jerry,So Sorry to hear about your loss....My sincere condolences to you and your Family

  • Hi All,

    No warren I don't think it was me. I did not go to any fairs.(too busy eating everywhere.lol)

    Jerry sorry for your loss. So Sad and much too young to pass. Prayers out to you and your family.

    Spoke to Umbria today sounded better to me but he said he feels the same. He called me. I'm a bad girl. I told everyone to call and I did not. boo hoo.

    keep calling and I will he need his spirits lifted. He may be i there for the reunion. I hope not..

    Getting very very nervous we only have about 68 paid and abut 20 sending money, We need more people or I will be stuck putting out 5 thousand dollars or more out of my pocket. OH DEAR GOD..Very disappointed in a lot of people who really stuck it to me...Not just people friends....NEVER AGAIN.. Should have listened to you patsy and went with my instincts and had it at the Yacht club and the people who did not like could have stayed home because they still are staying home and it is where they wanted it..

    Patsy call Angela and ask if she is coming and her group of friends.... I need them

    ok I have to stop worrying now...

    instead?? Sweet talk him...maybe that will work

  • I spoke to Anthony yesterday and he sounded menza, menza

    Im sure he would be happy if we all hung out with him in his hospital room. The only thing that bothers me is him saying he is hallucinating. If I go up there...Im sure he's

    gonna say I slapped the crap out of him and have me thrown out.....LMAO!!!!!

    I really miss that pain in the butt not being on here

    I found these in my Photobucket....he really did bring

  • Hi all

    Weekend was nice but my brother Vinny wound up in the ER last night with chest pains. He was at Lutheran and wound up signing himself out because they were so overloaded he was in the hall up against the nurse's station. Thank God his blood work and EKG showed no problem with the heart Probably just stress!!!

    Wow lots of rain ahead. Stay dry all....

  • Goodnight....

  • T'was the night before school started, when all through the town, the parents were cheering - a riotous sound!! By nine, kids were all washed & tucked into bed where memories of homework filled them with dread! New pencils, new folders, new notebooks too! New teachers, new friends - their anxiety grew! The PARENTS just giggled when they learned of this fright and shouted to all "GO TO BED!!!! IT'S A SCHOOL NIGHT!!! Pass this on to all parents cause "IT'S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR

    Just posted this on facebook and I thought I'd share...my kids don't find it as funny as I do lol

  • Suzie....I love that song "Smile" =DB

  • GOOD MORNING, FRIENDS :)

    LOVE THE POEM, DEB!! HOPE VINNY IS FEELING BETTER.

    HAVE TO RUN..BUSY, BUSY, BUSY..

    ALL, HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!! :-)
