We made it to our respective homes...it is also Christmas, my mother's crowning season! And now, on top of that, she has a wedding to get through and a new grandson. My sister, Judy, who is to be my matron of honor just gave birth on December 10th to her second son, David. My sister and family did not live in Pittsfield so they, as well as my three cousins (who were older than we were...really closer to mom in age), I and Dagmar were all staying at Mom and Dad's along with my younger brother, Jack who was 13-14. Mom would not think of putting any family up at a local motel! And Dick showed up on the 28th, after Christmas. He did stay in a motel as did his brother who was to be his best man. His brother, Fay, had brought his girlfriend, Sarah with him. I think Sarah may have still been in high school. It would not do for her to stay in a motel so we had made arrangements for her to stay at a friend's house.
