your pototo loving great-grandfather

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd tell you a little bit about your great-grandfather, William Henry Capellaro. Grandpa wasn't Irish, but he married an Irish girl, Muriel Isabel Cuddy. It must be the Irish in her that makes really good potatoes. So good, that Grandpa had them at every lunch and dinner every day of their life together. It didn't matter if they were baked, boiled, mashed, fried, scalloped, au gratin, or in salad, but he had 'em. That's a lot of potatoes when you add in the fact that they were married over 75 years! Here's the photo that ran in the local newspaper when they celebrated their Diamond anniversary.
P.S. Daddy and I were married on the same day they were married, August 30th.
