Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all! Here I am with my Mother when I was 10 years old on vacation in the Black Forest. I remember being very happy to be with my parents in the country. This photo was taken in 1939 just before the war began. It was our first and last family vacation.

A Great Day in Pittsburgh

Bobbie and I were in Pittsburgh yesterday where I was honored to receive the 2013 Great Friend to Kids Award from the Association of Children's Museums

It was a wonderful day and I feel very pleased to be recognized by this organization. I was interviewed by Larry Berger and was presented the award by Jane Werner, Janet Rice Elman and Susan Hildreth.
