    • Merry Christmas to you Keith. Maybe the Madonna is still on 9th St. The right hand side of the street as you walk south.

  4. This is the kind of statue that sat atop the dresser of every Nonna that I ever knew. And there was a St. Christopher medal on the dash of her husband’s car. Have a Merry Christmas, Ruth!
