More ethnic treasures

Compliments of my large and gentle Irish friend....

After reading your last blog update I have come to realize that if you changed a few things you could be writing about growing up Irish. First trade "babcia" for “Nana” and "dziadziu." For “Papa” or “Grandda”. Second at least one uncle name Mike or Patrick. Third we know who Kosciuszko and Pulaski were, because we crossed their bridges every other Sunday to get to Woodside, Queens. Ditto on Virgin, Democrats and Pope.(Even the Dago ones). Ditto on Crucifix and Palm. Double ditto on Highballs and bar. As far as peirogies and Kielbasa, we are a little short changed. The culinarally challenged thing! On a whole we could be brothers. Ah to be Irish!!
