Donna's former BF Jimmy Argeros at mom's Passover seder. Donna and Jimmy met at a meeting and we all liked him. When my BF Chris Ray broke up with me and my heart was broken, Jimmy took me for a ride on his motorcycle. I literally went screaming thru the streets of Philadelphia. It was like riding a roller coaster.
Okay, we watched the movies at my sister Donna's in Hatboro, the condo which massively flooded about three months ago. Donna now has a whole new downstairs thanks to the flood money. Looks great. Here's her grandson Paddy tickling the ivories w/a jazz composition. Both Paddy and big bro Quinn have performed at the downtown restaurant Opera, where waiters often break out in opera tunes.
Much of the home movies focused on my niece Jade, now 23, who will be married in June. Watch for your invitation. Donna will do the calligraphy envelopes.
Donna used to babysit for Jade several times a week while her parents Lynn and Warren worked at the Now and Then Shop in New Hope.
It's extremely hard getting a decent photo off a moving screen.
You can barely see this beautiful lounging lady on Aunt Ethel's sofa in her living room. She has thick white hair and is talking on a phone with a chord. She also takes lithium for her manic-depression and it is slowly ruining her kidneys. She is 44 years old and is going to grad school to become a psychotherapist.
Ruth lives with her two children. Here's Daniel. In a moment he is going to slide down the banister. He is about 12 years old. When he is 13 he persuades his mom to have him fitted for contact lenses.
Here's Sarah, about 15 years old, doing her party trick of sticking a spoon on her nose.
Here's Ruth again with that thick white hair. On the wall above the couch is a framed poster of an aerial view of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Wonder where it is now.
Here's teenager Sarah at her grandmother's house. Donna and Cousin Melissa are in the b/ground.
Passover Seder at mom's house. I believe mom is 70 years old, a mere 19 yrs ago.
Donna, at the Seder, has always read the part in the Hagaddah of The Rebellious Son.
Jimmy's daughter Athena is bored out of her mind at the Seder. When Sarah and I left (Dan wasn't there), Sarah said on camera, Gbye Athena, sorry you didn't have a good time.
Lynn and Jade at the Seder table.
Paddy was asleep upstairs, but Quinn got to watch movies of himself as a little baby.
Hello baby Quinn, kick your feet for us, smile for us, coo for us. He did all things which you can't capture in this 'still' shot.
