|Fanny, Abe and ETHEL Pellicoff, 1894. Philadelphia, PA|
Today is the Winter Solstice. It also happens to my grandmother's birthday. Ethel Anna Pellicoff Bloom. She would have been 123 years old today! Grandma Ethel died 50 years ago at the age of 73...young for today. I can't believe it's been such a long time. She made a great impression on me. People say I resemble her. She was very artistic. She sewed and crocheted, played the piano and was a great cook. I was just a girl when she passed. I so wish she had been around when I was older so I could have gained more of her wisdom. Happy Birthday, Grandma!
