Re: Happy Holidays to All/now kiffles


Daryl,

My parents also spoke Polish to keep us out of the conversation. It took a
while but I learned to speak a little and understand enough to know what was
going on. My mom was the neighborhood interpreter and letter writer for the
"old" country people and for many years she corresponded with our relatives
in Poland.
