|Granny and PaPa|
Even though I never got to know her very well, I do have fond memories, even if they are few. She loved to spoil her grandchildren. She cooked such fantastic food. When she was serving up a meal to us kids she played waitress. She used a "tacky" Pittsburgh accent and called us the regulars. She would say, "Oh I see it's the regulars. I guess yinz will be havin' the usual." She mad us laugh so hard with her impression of this, over-the-top Pittsburgh waitress. It was so NOT her and that's what made it funny.
