“Alice” was my Grandmother and “Molly,” her sister. This site is a tribute to them. Humble, yet, proud they made a life for themselves, far from England. Someone once commented, “Like a girl gang but not in a bad way.” Theirs was a simpler time. There was quiet laughter, mystery, whispered words, hat pins, and a frying pan. Poetry was clipped from newspapers and glued into bound books. Alice owned a Pug named “Tipsy.” The sisters were resilient.
