Interesting! I was born in Ayr, Scotland. I arrived on a troop ship carrying War Brides and their children to the United States in 1946.


Mum was born in Beth, Ayrshire. Immigrated as a wee lass in 1927. Arrived at Ellis Island from Glasgow on SS Leviathan.

She could pinch a penny -- get a booger out of Lincoln's nose. Dad handed each check to her, she took care of the rest. Savings rate was impressive. Hospitality and generosity was her (and Dad's) hallmark. Always extra potatoes in the oven and room at the table for guests and passers by. We'd move the meat from our plate to the guests. :)
