Forty-One and Counting!

Forty-One and Counting!

Bena and Mike Shklyanoy. Chicago. September, 1976.

I am forty-one!

Yes, it was that many years ago and, as they say, only yesterday, September 15, 1976, that my family arrived in Chicago, USA, from Kiev, USSR.

Now, my children are much older than I was then but I feel much younger than I felt then.

Emily Shklyanoy. Kiev. Year 1975.

Polina Shklyanoy. Chicago. Year 1976.

Happy anniversary to them, to their children, to me!

By rights, happy birthday to me!
