#AtoZ: L is For Lansky

I married a Lansky–Mitchell Lansky–and today is his birthday; however, I decided I should write with caution or next year I could be advertising a new wife for him. Besides, his grandfather's name was Meyer. When in college, a professor asked Mitchell if he was related to Meyer Lansky, the infamous gangster of Mafia fame. Mitchell said, "Do you want to make something of it?" This shut the professor up.

Of course, Meyer was the grandfather on his mother's side, who was not the infamous Meyer Lansky. As far as I know, there is no relation.

Happy birthday to my wonderful husband who puts up with me!

Happy Birthday Mitchell! When he realises that he needs a break from plumbing, you, the kitchen sink, send him over here to South Africa.

How very strange, a week ago I'd never heard of Meyer Lansky but as it happens I'm reading Douglas Thompson 'Dark Heart of Hollywood' about the Mafia in Hollywood. I wonder what the 3rd time I hear it will be!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Birthday, Mitchell! Hey, are you available to do some plumbing? I could use your help. Loved his response to the professor.

Happy birthday to your husband! My married name is Boerner which is pronounced Burner, yet people often say Boner. Nice, huh? I need to remember that line, "You wanna make something of it?"
