(Original Image and Text, Copyright (c) 2011 Cynthia Shenette) I've decided to take Apple's suggestion to heart and use the daily theme in the second part of my post title. This is a nice, tidy way to start the new year off fresh. Last year I used three different titles for Wordless Wednesday--Wordless Wednesday, Not So Wordless Wednesday, and (Almost) Wordless Wednesday. This year I've decided to simplify things and use the tag Wordless Wednesday, not as part of the title but for the purpose of being picked up by Geneabloggers. Some weeks will be "wordier" Wordless Wednesdays than others. I'm sure you all will figure it out. Frankly, my husband is fascinated that I attempt to participate in anything that involves wordlessness.
This month's Wordless Wednesday theme is cold and snow. I love this photo of my mom, Christine (Szerejko) Shenette, and my grandfather, Adolf Szerejko. My guess is it was taken about 1950. This particular First National grocery store was located on West Boylston St. in Worcester, MA, down the street where I grew up. We only had one car for a while when I was a kid, and I remember walking down the street with my mom to shop at this store. I think the First National closed this location sometime in the mid to late 1960s. Mom looks so "pulled together" for a trip to the grocery store doesn't she? Handbag, gloves, fur. I always wear my gloves and fur when I go to Target. Don't you?
