I feel bad that I missed that, but mom and dad were late baby makers apparently.. :)my brothers and sister did though. well , my moms mother anyways.my dads side grandma was already gone , but I heard alot about her, how she was a very happy lady, loved to be around all the friends and family.. liked her beer :)Im not sure about vodka, because I was told they made wisky in the bathtub and sold it, like alot of our grandparents did back then.. hmmmmmmmshe also ran a confections store out of the basement coal shoot.. kids would come and buy it up..I was told by my uncle, that during the war. some man came to the house, dont really know who he was, if he was in the polish army <~probably or what, but alot of govt officers were around him, so he was important, came to see my grandmother, Visit.. and was a relative.. which I still cant figure out who he was.thats all from me..I hope this thread takes off. :)come on folks.. even if you live in poland, tell your stories.. poland gets enough negative, lets share some of the positive for a change.. :)This actually proves a point, no matter if your polish, british, scottish, irish, etcnone would participate in such a boring discussion.. because its not about war, or about someone getting hurt, poloniphobia, racism.. yep, i am sure we had a post like this before and it went un-noticed.. guess grandma wasnt so important to anyone huh?well Mine was...Lets see if I change the topic to how about everyone tell a story about their grandparents homeland and stories.. lets see if anyone wants to share..again, another attempt to bring to the table some positive.. and being obvious about it.
