Now, I spend my time clearing out the mass
of 'stuff' collected through the years.
Anyone care to join me? Come and visit!

School Story:

Haven't we all at one time tied a sock to the 'BELL'
to silence it? My favorite was picking Fialky in the
fields. Do you know that my husband dubbed me
'Fialka' from the very beginning of our relationship and even now have it engraved on my tomb stone!!

So much going on in my retirement. Went to the Slovak Festival in summer of2017 and 2018 with some of family. Marty came out from California to celebrate the occassiin and Jim (Nancy) from New Jersey. Met up in Danville and joined Kate Doran who joined us at the "Halusky" line. Good food, family and friends....what more could we ask for. Also met up with Srs. Irene and Rosanne Kmetz who manned the Gift store. What wonderful gifts we collected.

Hi Lynda. So glad to get into your profile. A Happy Birthday to you wonderful! I remember so well the day you were born.
send me an e-mail at as I cannot get through
on your e-mail....something missing, I guess.

Hi Josie,
So good to hear from you. I do not hear from Georgianna much, once in
a while on Facebook. I see Margie (Rosanne) on facebook quite a bit, a
little about Renee. So many have died and I am sad that I didn't find them
sooner. Kate Doran posted a Birthday Message. So it goes....time goes by
so fast and most of the time is spent at the Doctor's at Rehab or just shopping.
Do still get to Mass a couple times a week but not much more. We just lost another
son, Mark Joseph on Apr. 2nd this year. A tragic truck (work) accident. It was in
Arizona. Most of us were there, 6 sons + Mark....and 2 daughters. It was so sad.
Please let me hear from you. I used to hear from Cecilia Dlhos some time back.
Actually, they even drove out here to Steubenville to visit the Franciscan Univ.
Take care. Mary Ann
