Werbicki family supports the war effort

I found a Thanksgiving picture I wanted to share with everyone!  It was taken in 1978.  The grand kids must have made place cards since you can see one with Emily’s name on it.

Because of the number of men serving in the military during World War 2, women across America took up the slack in producing the goods and materials needed to support the troops and win the war.  Wanda and her sister Reggie also did their part.  The slide show called ” Werbicki family supports the war effort” shares the little we know about what was happening in New York while Adrian was at sea.  It is at the bottom of the “Blogroll” list.



Orchids – For the love of exotic flowers

This entry in the blog was written by a “committee” that included Barbara, Terry, Reggie, and me.    Since I am a total dunce when it comes to plants (especially orchids), my contribution could only consist of scanning and adjusting photos, which would have made for a boring piece of work!  In hindsight, it amazes me how deep into their orchid hobby Momma and Daddy got.  As you will see, it became a serious passion and a small business.  No attempt was made place the pictures in a chronological order.  Please click on “Orchids” in the Blogroll list and enjoy!

Our Pilgrim Connection

I have a Thanksgiving treat for you.  Instead of continuing with Daddy’s military story, I have put together a little information about our Pilgrim ancestor, Francis Cooke.  Though it is only five pages long,  it seemed to take forever to write.  The problem was the massive amount of information written about the colony at Plymouth.  I have boiled the story down to a few essential pages, and as you read it you will be reminded of many things you learned in history classes in school.   It is a PDF file instead of the usual PowerPoint or Word document.  Enjoy!

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
