Brenda Siegelman's Groups

Assignment. Thanksgiving Dinner Party, people I don't know, never met.

1. Uncle Georgie (whose memory I've been asked to preserve.) He was a musician. Gone by the end of WWII , he left a grieving fiance, and no children to remember him . My grandmother, (in the year before she died,) gave me his photo, and told me about his love for swing and hot jazz. She also made sure I knew where his grave is. When my parents passed, I hd to clean out their house. There I found Georgie's WWII Jewish prayerbook, his paratrooper wings and another photo. I feel a connection to this man who I never met.
2. Squanto. Why not? he was a translator and man of peace.
3. Josephine Baker and her rainbow tribe., what an interesting person she seemed to be.
4. Sacajawea and her child. I always wanted to meet her, I'd love to make her comfortable and give her a really good meal.
5. Charles Dickens, because I really love his writing, and I think from his food descriptions, he'd enjoy the meal.
6. Martin Luther King, Jr. Because he's really important to me for his non violent philosophy and amazing leadership skills. Also, I'd love to cook for him and make him comfortable. He's been through a lot.
8. My great maternal great grandmother Jenny. I have a million questions for her that will never be answered.
9 . John Lennon. I'd also ask him to bring some of that famous fresh baked bread of his.
10. Julia Child. She could help out in the kitchen with me if she would want to, but mostly, I'd just really like to hear her stories first hand.
11. Ceasar Chavez. United Farmworkers Union president from the 60's and 70's who made me aware, through his actions, of the hardship suffered to bring us food.
12. Angelina Jolie and her tribe. I think everyone likes having a really pretty girl present. I think she'd have a lot in common with Josephene Baker and they'd have an interesting conversation. She could bring Brad Pitt if she wants. We would make room at the table.

maybe if you just start a new page on there? would you feel more connected? i'm so sorry they did this to you. they have done things to me too to which i have had no help from them. they seem to have no customer service whatsoever.
