As far as my story, my parents plane went down in an italian and jewish neighborhood in new jersey. I was raised by a wild pack of my friends' families.

Wine? Chuck it; I’ll have a tequila sunrise please. Or one of those umbrella drinks that you Hawai’i folk are famous for.

What great stories!

Thank you all for sharing these wonderful stories! It seems a lot of you had moms who didn’t, couldn’t, or wouldn’t cook. And dads whose only relationship to fire was a bbq grill!

Please keep ‘em coming, friends! I’m not recording them, or compiling them, just enjoying them as I would a good novel.

Don't forget the forgettable eating experience of microwaving a frozen dinner daily. I can't do that, some can, which is OK.

I saw a pretty professional looking gal at the supermarket. Her shopping cart was stacked with 15 heat and serve meals.

I'm nothing but a wanna be firehouse cook, but I wanted to cook for her *sigh*. Did I mention she was pretty? Oh...ya.

My family had the first Microwave oven in our neighborhood. Neighbors came over just to watch us boil water in it.

Then again, we had a dishwasher and central air-conditioning in 1965, and my dad had a cellular phone in his company car in 1979. We were what they now call, "early adopters."

Don't be so quick to judge someone by what's in their shopping cart. You have no idea of where that food is going.

A few weeks ago I had a shopping cart loaded up with just canned goods and some other non-perishables. My grandson's school was having a community food drive.

I'm sure I didn't look professional or pretty that day, though...

What a noble thing to do! I’m sure you looked both professional and pretty. And maybe you had a halo! God bless!

And I never judge people by what’s in their shopping carts. Well, except maybe for that one person who had about two hundred pounds of candy corn on the day after Halloween! I mean really! Candy corn? If it were Reese’s, I’d understand!

No, we were were a very middle-class family when I was growing up. My dad was a chemical engineer for an oil company.

My dad is now 85, and has a MacBookPro, an iPhone7 and an iPad. My 83-year-old mom has an iMac, an iPhone, and an iPad that she uses to read at least a book a week.

My dad has always been interested in the newest technology. Even more than I am. That's why we had that stuff.
