What a delight! To many of us who never thought to have our Grandparents document their lives, this brings a link to what they may have done as well. Thank you and keep telling your story Clara!

I don't know what kind of depression she is talking about when you still have access to eggs, bread, and especially olive oil. I did not have access to eggs and cooking oil for years when I was growing up. She is not a good cook either.
