LOL.. that's funny. I wish I could have known my paternal grandpa he was the first generation born in America, and his parents came here in 1880. I bet they would have been wonderful characters to know. Thanks for sharing your memory.

Thanks, all. I'm not even first-generation myself.

That's a great story! My Dad came from Poland. I remember sitting on my grandfather's lap while he told me stories and he spoke very little English. Even though I didn't understand much of it, it was still a special time. My Dad went back to Poland several times and could still speak Polish fluently.
Where were you born Jessy?

In Germany, but I think we have a dash of Polish too. Something Eastern European, anyhow (along with German, Friesian, and two kinds of Jewish). Why else would I go so crazy for Russian food? BTW did you get to try a kind of Polish doughnut called pacszki (sp?)?
