3 Generations


(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!

That's Mimi!
