WELCOME TO MAY GUYS AND DOLLS
To me May has always been the official start of spring. Going back to my childhood days the weather was turning warmer, we started playing more baseball at the Food Fair parking lot after supper and school days were coming to a close. My father started his garden for his tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and mom started her Polish style spring cleaning binge. May is a happy month for me 34 years ago Roe and I were married and blessed with two fine sons. You start writing and your mind slips back to the past and you recall things you did years ago. I remember as an altar boy attending May devotions services in our church, my dad and I making plans to see the Phillies play at old Connie Mack Stadium. One of my best memories is going fishing with him many times after supper at the Marine Terminal on the Delaware River. I guess each of the months brings back memories of things special to us all and us wanting to share them with others.
Some other interesting May facts the flower for May is the Lily of the Valley, the birthstone is the Emerald which means love and success and the Zodiac sign is me the Gemini. I can tell you Roe calls me the true Gemini for having dual personalities which I cannot deny.
