RE: [sig] Painted eggs
- My grandfather (Polish immigrant to US) would do that on Easter also with
all the grandchildren. We had to bring out own eggs that we decorated the
American way.... his were done the traditional way with wax etchings and
onions skin dyes. His was always the hardest and smashed our eggs to
bits...we would always get two tries....one for eash end.
