$#*! My Dad Says

  1. Barbara,
    What an endearing, memory-filled story about your father (and you)! I arrived here by way of your Hanukkah blog which I also enjoyed. There seems to be a theme with cookies and waking up for school! His nicknames for you also were so sweet.

    Thank you for sharing a peek behind the curtain into your childhood (and beyond) living and loving in Queens!
