In 1965, Lesley Ann Warren co-starred with Stuart Damon in the made-for-television version of Cinderella. I was 9 and I was enthralled. It didn't matter that we didn't have a color television and I was watching the images in black and white. All that mattered was the magic of the story.
My grandmother's birthday was this week. She was born in 1877 and would have been 136 years old. And when, in her honor, I looked at some family photos, I discovered something that I had not noticed before.
My grandmothers were born in 1927 and 1930. When the woman from the Bronx passes away, it will most likely be announced on the front page of the New York Times. When the woman from Paramus dies, it will be noted on page 34 of the Pascack Press.
