Ohhh you were just a "short" swim from my home on Long Island! Unfortunately Long Island (at least Nassau County and MOST of Suffolk) are no where near as delightful and quaint sounding as your town!

I always liked to imagine what Long Island was like before it was turned into crazy suburbia after the War. I always imagine it a lot like Prince Edward Island from Anne of Green Gables. I think it must have been beautiful there.

I live in NJ now (a state I truly dislike) and pine for my days as a NYer :)


Just when you think you know lots about your family,I learn something new!!

Enjoy your trip.I hope the New England weathter will be mild for your visit.


Love that pic. Look how young and skinny you were! :)


Hi Girotti family!

How neat to read about your roots in Uncasville, Mr. Girotti. I am finally trying to catch up on reading a few blogs and doing a little blogging myself.

Hannah, thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. Psalm 119 is a wonderful passage and one I need to study more in depth. Thanks for sharing what you have been meditating on recently.

Mrs. Girotti, I received your precious letter some months back and even typed out a response letter back to you but never got it sent in the mail! My sincerest apologies for my slothfulness and disregard. I truly appreciate your dear friendship and encouraging words. I will try to get that letter sent soon. :)

We have been blessed to read of your home church's forming and the blog content for the new church. My dad has enjoyed interacting with you via e-mail about such matters, Mr. Girotti. May God use it for His glory and to equip the saints for faithful service to Him.

God's richest blessings be upon you all.
In Christ's love, Lydia H.


Hope you have a safe trip and a great time with your family.



Hey Tom,
It's funny how you chose to talk about the old house at this time. I found out recently that it's for sale. The selling price is $214,900, it's appreciated a tad since Mom and Dad bought it for $12,500. I was talking with a friend of mine about how we could go around in a circle through the rooms, and that we have home movies of Easter "parades" through the house. Too bad the lottery won't cooperate with me, or I'd buy it. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone. I arranged to work on Saturday instead of Friday, so I'll have more time with you. Have a safe trip if I don't talk to you before then. Love, Toots


What a great blog entry! Thanks for sharing Tom!


Mike is from Ellington, CT, about 18 miles NE of Hartford. His Dad was the mayor for two terms. It was an ideal town, a little like Mayberry. Now the cornfields are buried under condos. I always enjoyed riding through the countryside counting the covered bridges. Have a safe, enjoyable trip. Your mountain will be a welcome sight when you come home!
