My Uncle Chully and Aunt Joann are my God-parents, and I am proud to say that I was at the wedding of my Uncle Chully & Aunt Joann. Sadly, I have no memory of that event being that I was 9 months old at the time. My older brothers, Bill & Tom, ages 7 and 5 in 1954 were also there dressed in little white jackets. The story that was widely circulated within my family of that event, was that one of them rushed up to my parents and excitedly announced that not only did they have “pop”, but it was also “FREE”! My brothers, as every parent can predict, emerged from the reception with “Free Pop” all over them.
Even though I don’t remember that wedding day, I do remember looking at those photos as I grew up. My impression was that Uncle Chully and Aunt Joann were a handsome couple, and that my aunt was the most beautiful and most glamorous woman I had ever seen.
As I grew up and moved into adulthood, middle age, and now my 60’s, no trip to the Pittsburgh area was complete without a trip up the hill to Thomas Street to visit them. And, no trip to Thomas Street was complete without a “chipped ham sandwich on white bread with sliced tomato and mayonnaise”. It was never a dull moment when I visited and always one of the highlights of my trip. And, whenever I looked into the eyes of my dear Aunt Joann, I still saw that beautiful and glamorous woman whom I loved as a small boy. She was my “Auntie Mame”.
I know that as I travel on in life, those sandwiches will never quite taste that same, and no one will ever be as beautiful and glamorous as she.
