About Ella Kochis

    Every year always a large garden in the back yard. I remember harvest and canning season very well. Picking apples and pears from the tree in the back. Jars everywhere and pots boiling. I picked apples in her tree and ran into a bee hive and got out and down as fast as I could almost landed on grandpa Joseph. 
    Christmas Eve was always at her house and the traditional slovak meal was served. Mushroom soup, rice, babalkie (mini breads and sourkraut), starting with prayer and giant rectangular host with honey and full garlic clove on it. Everyone had to eat this like it or not! 
    I also can't remember ever missing a christmas eve at their house playing tripoli barely able to stay awake for midnight and just before midnight someone would man the back door and another would man the front door and precisely at midnight both doors opened and wich ever way the cold breeze would blow, out went the old year and in went the new year. 
    In the summer, usually between Gary, Mark, Dad and myself at different stages in our lives, would mowe and trim the lawn every week for me at least $5.
    Also Square prune donuts, Cookies in the back room cookie jar!
    Have I mentioned food yet!
