Romancing Irene

I have this photo of Aunt Irene on her honeymoon, yet I have no memory of her husband.  But now I have the story from Cousin Butchie (As told to Billie!):

Aunt Irene was my godmother. She had no children. She was married briefly to a short hot tempered Italian fellow but the marriage ended when she broke his skull after he decided to hit her once too many times.

Ha ha… Poor hot tempered Italian fellow.  He should have known better than to mess with a Burnisky Babe. 


Dinner with Aunt Rosie

Of course Aunt Rosie would feed her little Bernice and Irene…

They Went Back to Visit

The Three Little Sisters went back one day, Irene, Tinky and Bernice…

The Burnisky Girls

Ok lets try: Veronica (Tinky), Helen, Bernice, Irene, Emma
Evelyn Burnisky (married to Martin), her son Marty ex-wife Anita, Eleonora.

Helen, Veronica, Bernice, Emma, Eleonora, Irene…

Did I get it right?

Fried Liver Wednesday’s

Joseph Petrusky told me that there was a standing date for Wednesday night when all the kids would go to Pratt Street for fried liver.  Bought fresh that evening, fried in butter with lots of onions.  Hmm… that didn’t make it to the next generation in our house.  I think I see Potatoe Pancakes on the table for this dinner.

Is that CLARK GABLE?  Oh, no, I see Aunt Dorothy so it must be Uncle Alec.  Oh my Uncle Alec was such a handsome man!
