    Great story about your time in Maine. For the record I brought my children up there for many years as well. They are now grown (ages 24 and 22). Your article brought back alot of fantastic memories. I glad to see you are doing well.

    • It’s nice to see you, Ken! I’m glad to have the chance to connect with you and Bill and Papa Joe. I hope your kids also have very fond memories of vacationing in Maine.

    Thanks for the memories!

  5. I have nominated you for a Liebster Award. It’s interesting to read what you are all about. The observations you make carry weight in expected places. My own sense of self feels slightly lopsided when I’m reading your posts. It’s a feeling that is strangely addicting. Keep blogging!

    Are you any relation to the morrello family. You share the same last name as certain old school mob members?

    • Yes, I am related to Giuseppe Morello. We are distant cousins. I’m a distant cousin of his second wife, Lena Salemi, too. And Morello’s first cousin and my twice great aunt were first cousins, and married. Have you seen my blog, Mafia Genealogy? I have written about my kinships with old school mafia from Corleone who were active there and in New York.
