Wordless Wednesday - Where it all began!


These are my Maternal Grandparents.  They were both born in Palermo, Sicily.  My Grandfather Thomas is 21 yrs. of age, and my Grandmother Adeline (Nellie) was 14 yrs. of age.









And thIs young man happens to be NightOwlMama's oldest boy, Ryan my first born grandchild, my grandparents great-great grandson whose birthday is today.  He has turned 21.  He is the first in our family to graduate college at ITT Tech.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY RYAN!!!
