Personal Notes:
Every Sunday morning we would all walk to church and come home for our spaghetti and meatball dinner around noon. Then in the afternoon we would walk from our farm on State Road down to the Harbor Theatre for a movie. Ma came with us and we had 10 cents each, with a penny left over to buy candy.
