So much love and wonderful memories of growing up as a kid in a loving, loud, crazy Italian household.


Singing with Dad: Way down upon the sea how happy we will be alone by the shore of the silvery moonlight, my honey I know... Although we're apart we're part of my heart so tonight, you'll belong to me...just to little old me.
"I knew an old lady who swallowed a fly"

Singing with Mom: I want some red roses for a blue lady. Mr. Florist take my order please. We had a silly quarrel the other day. I only want to take these silly blues away. I want some red roses for a blue lady. Send them to the sweetest girl in town. And if they do the trick, I'll hurry back to pick...your best white orchid for her wedding gown.
