DiZazzo A Hairdresser's Appointment Book in 1950 Ciao Bella, Rummaging in the bowels of my dad's cellar when we cleared out to sell his house I discovered a huge chunk of remembrances from my childhood and before. Up on one shelf was yet another box filled with just plain junk on top of what I considered a treasure -- my mom's ap- pointment book from Nana's shop in the year 1950. Calendars from just 20 and 30 years ago lay on top. But 1950: why did she save that book in particular? More on that question later. Each column for January through December detailed each client -- customers at the time -- a name, always with a proper Miss or Mrs. in front. The services ranged from perms to polish on the nails. There were no answering machines then, so Mom relied on being there to answer the phone, take appointments, and service the walk-ins. Some days were slow, with just one customer. And then some were just packed in and she barely stopped all day, working as late as ten o'clock -- and off to the bus for home. The services included a "treatment," shampoo and wave, a tint, and so forth. The cost for a shampoo and wave in 1950 was seventy- five cents! Other services were priced similarly. Mary Catalano's Beauty Shop with Josie, late 1940s, South Union Street, Lawrence. Among the names she would mention over her next 51 years on earth, many were there in that book. I saw there listed the mother and aunts of one of my own especially loved clients Mrs. Pat P ..... a. I've been servicing her nails for at least 20 years now! She tells me how she accompanied her mother to my Mom's shop and would press her face into the window to see just how much longer Mom would be. Ah, if the book could only talk, what tales it could tell. So, enough about busi- ness. Let's get down to ro- mance in the beauty shop. Lo and behold, there were scribblings of my dad's (her future husband) name: his visitor's day there. And a year's appointments for her future sister-in-law, Aunt Ann DiZazzo (my Morn finally spelled it correctly three- quarters through the year.) And, of course, her future mother-in-law, my Nana Mrs. Mary DiZazzo! Where there's beauty, there's love.

The Globe added, you have to take Fox with a grain of salt. Well, a letter writer on January 29th had his letter printed in which he stated, he always reads the Globe with a grain of salt too. Kudos to letter writer Patrick Buonaugurio of Hanover. Well said. SENIORS GOING TO FOXWOODS The Nazzaro Center se- niors are once again run- ning a trip to Foxwoods on Wednesday, March 4th.

PORTSIDE AT EAST PIER Someone once said, "Let your he/art be your compass, it will point east." Over in East Boston, new luxury apartments opening up on the East Boston waterfront at Portside at East Pier. This is just the beginning of the revitalization of the East Boston waterfront. The view from Eastie is second to none with amazing vistas of Downtown Boston. This area could be bigger than the Seaport District in South Boston. Just the beginning folks, just the beginning. TIRED OF THE PERENNIAL POLICE BIAS SLANT Much of the liberal media is so anti-bias, it isn't either surprising nor funny in the least. Just last week, The Bay State Banner penned another worthless editorial, The Perennial Practice of Police Abuse. The newspaper went on to compare the recent blockage of traffic on 1-93 in both Medford and East Milton Square by a group called Black Lives Matter as the same thing as what occurred on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Alabama back on March 27, 1965 when police beat up civil rights activists trying to cross over that Ala- bama bridge 50 years ago. According to the Banner, the police have been lawless since the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215. Says the Banner, "That policy (police abuse) is 800 years old and the police still can't get it together." I think it is the liberal media that needs to get its act together. ROSE DENARO, R.I.P. East Boston recently lost 101-year-old Rose Denaro after a brief illness. She is survived by much family. Her son, Dickie Denaro, has been a good friend of mine since I moved to East Boston five years ago. It was very good to see so many family members and friends at her wake at Ruggiero's all for a lady going on 102 years in a few months. She almost made it to her birthday, but it wasn't in the cards. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BIG AL 100-year-old Ai Belgiorno of Revere recently celebrated his 100th birthday at McDon- ald's on Squire Road. AI is a very lucky guy to have so many friends and the luck to still have his bride of 60 years, Marguerite, with him celebrating his big day. AI is a native of East Bos- ton and was born on Janu- ary 3, 1915 at 424 Saratoga Street. One of his secrets to a long and healthy life -- walking everyday and dream- ing of the best beach in the world, Revere Beach. He also likes McDonald's where everyone knows his name ....
