As the Christmas season begins, I always bring out a tablecloth my mother made 60 years ago. I was thrilled when the BOSTON GLOBE Magazine decided to publish my remembrances of this “family tree” tablecloth for this week’s “Connections” essay and I hope you enjoy this too.

Mr. Wonderful and I are not techies, by any stretch of the imagination. We did the best we could to copy the exact essay as it appears in the GLOBE Magazine and paste it below. I apologize for the small print, it wasn’t easy to duplicate, but the good news is: Mr. W. and I are still talking to each other!
