This is the photograph we have on the wall at the top of our stairs. It is Chuck's Great Aunt Berta and Uncle Chaim. They were married in the early thirties when she was around 20 years old and he was 30. Chaim was a business man in Berlin as was Berta's father. He became friends with the whole family and spent many happy hours with them. Berta was 12 years old when she and Chaim met. When she was around fourteen, Chaim told Berta that they would be married someday. Chaim waited patiently for years for Berta to grow up. They never loved anyone else but each other and Berta said she never kissed another man in her lifetime except Chaim. I wonder if this happens anymore. Such a love story.
This is Chuck's Grandmother Marie, Chaim and then Berta in the late 1920's at the beach. I love Berta's bathing suit.
We had a wonderful visit with Kim from "Musings On A Small Life" yesterday. What a lovely lady who spoiled Chuck and I with a delicious lunch. Her two cats Nicki and Derry were adorable and very friendly. We are planning on visiting again soon.
Take care everyone and have a wonderful Sunday.
