Pictures of Eleanore's party follow
Eleanore telling stories about growing up and thinking that her name was "Her" and telling her dad "Give her some gum" when it was gum she herself wanted. Cy remembered nearly getting her finger cut off because she was holding a sausage so Eleanore could slice it up for the kitties--using an axe!
The whiskey jug: now it comes out that Aunt Tessie sold some home-make brew on the side and that her business was especially good during baseball games in Lourdes. Who knew?
