Grandma and Nanny at our Mother's Day luau, 1963
Mom: Well, I was probably reading some magazine, like Better Homes and Gardens, and luau menu probably caught my fancy. And I thought it would be nice to do something different for mother’s day. Something special for everybody. You know, do a themed thing. And I thought it would be fun to decorate for a luau. Well, what else do you want to know?
Me: You told me about the luau back when I was a kid. You said it was for Nanny?
Mom: Well, it was probably for Mother’s Day and Nanny’s birthday. And Grandma’s birthday, too–don’t forget, her birthday was in May.
Me: You told me Nanny didn’t like it.
Mom: Well, I guess at that particular point in my life I was looking for maternal approval. I wanted to have people come in and look at a meal and appreciate how hard I worked. And Nanny was very frugal, and she thought it was an extravagance. She wondered why couldn’t we have plain old food without the hoopla.
Me: It looks like she was eating it.
Mom: Well, not only did she eat it, I think she enjoyed, she just couldn’t show it.
Millie and John D'Angelo at our Mother's Day luau
Me: Would they smoke inside or outside the apartment?
Mom: I don’t ever remember them smoking them inside the apartment. I don’t think I ever remember them smoking it all. I think cigars were just given out at these parties–it was the manly thing to do. Aunt Millie would NEVER let John smoke inside! They’d more or less smoke it when they went somewhere with men. Millie would make such a fuss that he wouldn’t even dare try.
