About Bernadine Marie Pasenelli

"Ya' know what you need to do book"
should have been written by my mother.

All of the institutional knowledge; well based and well learned knowledge and
all of her BERNIE' ism's come to mind today. I am entering my mid 50's.
Gessshhh --- someone should have paid attention to the
KIDS BORN DURING THE DEPRESSION and paid attention to their
memories and ISM'S. Don't ya' think?

A Wooden Nickel in 1969 actually bought you something.
HA -- in 2014: that wooden nickel would get you a laugh at best.
A Wooden Nickel is worth a lot of $$$$ today in the collector's market / trade.

A gallon of gas when I started to drive, in 1975, was .53 cents a gallon.
In 2014: gas is on the upswing (yet again) at $3.51 a gallon.

WORK before PLAY - Bernie's mother'ism.

"Ya' know what you need to do..." Bernie's hallmark statement.

"Do your chores on Saturday, before you go out to play. I want to see
every item checked off this list before you do anything else."
This was a steadfast agenda with Mother --- every Saturday was chore day.

I love my Mother for what she instilled in me:
great work ethics, "being the bigger person" ethics, and keeping the peace.
Mother was a hard worker, always held her kids in priority position and knew exactly what to say and "not say," when needed. Mother was a "smart cookie!"

I love and miss my Mother everyday.
I pray for the kids of the next generation.
They will NEVER have what we have ---
the "DEPRESSION" knowledge, foresight and willingness.
