Happy Birthday to your MOM. My mother isn't far behind--on April 21
we will celebrate her 88th. Her parents are from Rovne (mother, my
grandmother) and Nitra (father, my grandfather). Grandpa first lived
in Homestead, PA (Pittsburgh area), then bought a farm and moved his
growing family to Hartstown, PA (near Linesville). He was a dairy
farmer there and that is the place I remember visiting as a child.
As for me, I'm half Irish and half Slovak. Married a man with
English, Scottish, French and maybe Welsh ties. What a heritage!
