9/11 … 1971… Lots o’ Kitsch happening here. Grandma blesses me at my Bar Mitzvah.

My favorites are her ab-fab powder blue chiffon outfit -and- her Lucille Ball red hair. Love how the torah crowns behind Grandma looks like antennae poppin’ out of her head. Oh how I wish my yalmekah had a propellor on it.

    Once again, perfect photo. I love the girth of your grandma’s hair. Her glasses are also outstanding. The dress goes without saying. The pearls add a crowning touch exceeded only by the hunk on her finger. The Torah shooting out of her head is a perfect antenna to ever-transmit signals of 1971 to us still today. Your expression is excellent. And it’s very nice to see what the other side of your big sweep of bangs looks like. https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2010/06/14/911-1971-feeding-mom-rhoda-a-piece-of-my-bar-mitzvah-cake/

    I gotta dig up an old photo of my grandmother. I swear Zeppy and I are related. Is she a Grandma Clara? Mine was. I know Clara had those bulky black rimmed glasses. I love these old photos.

      Yes Lisa, we ARE related. You are the Ying to my Yang. I think our Grandma’s are kibitzing real well in Heaven and talking about their lovely grandchildren leaving sweet blog feedback on Allee’s Kitschateria.
