Celebrating 62 Years in the USA Today

  Today March 23, 1954, I celebrate my arrival in Gloucester from Lajes do Pico Azores.

I thank my parents Anibal and Adelina for all their scarifies bringing our family to this great country.

Celebrated at the Azorean Restaurant with one of my favorite meals, Azorean Octopus.



  • What a cute little boy you were! Not that you’re not cute now.

  • Hi, Manny, I remember that handsome little boy I looked up to growing up on Portuguee Hill! I remember your parents and your sister and brother. So many memories at 41 Friend! I actually visited Lajes do Pico last summer. It was an awesome once-in-a-lifetime experience. Just a beautiful place! Please keep your beautiful photographs coming. I look forward to them.
    Take care! Linda (Rose) Galvin
