(This may have been the first picture AFTER my eyes were "fixed." Every other picture I had on
baby-blue cat's eye spectacles. Lovely!).
Vava, Mimi & Gammy...in Mimi's Pierre Hotel apartment, probably in 1965. (Sorry for the grainy picture; but it's the best I could do.) My mom was most likely taking this picture. She and I would take the train from New Canaan to the city for a visit to the eye doctor.
I had terribly crossed eyes and back then eye drops corrected it! I don't remember anything about the eye appointment; only the DELIGHT in visiting Mimi at The Pierre. On this day, HER Mom (my great grandmother) was present.
A date with Mimi was always memorable - she made me feel I was absolutely the most special little girl...ever! We'd hit Hamburger Heaven and now that I reflect; how dear it was of her. Drinking a malt, eating a burger with a little girl, all decked out in her heels and pearls. That's class!
