In order to keep this memoir in some sort of semblance of order, my goal was to write my life story from my earliest memories to the births of my daughter, Maria, and my son, Frank. Included are many human interest stories dating from my birth to their arrivals on this earth.

Also included are several incidents that took place in their early years that they are probably not aware of but that should be included, if for no other reason than posterity. At the time they occurred, I considered them quite serious, but looking back, they were quite humorous and even a little strange. Also, it gives me a chance to enhance and jog my memory so that my family and theirs learn a little about where they come from and who they really are. For me, it is an attempt to bring to life what I experienced growing up.
