From that day forward, there were two spellings of her last name — the original Polish version and the American one. Words were important then, and so was assimilating into the American culture.

Savor the flavor of apples

I throw the apple at you, and if you are willing to love me, take it and share your girlhood with me; but if your thoughts are what I pray they are not, even then take it, and consider how short-lived is beauty.
