The Original Green Table

This is from a recent e-mail from my mom…
“The green table that you referred to in your blog was Aunt Adelaide’s kitchen table, and the marble was from the Chateau. Uncle Ben had two pieces cut – one for the table and one for the top of a dresser. I do not know how he got it though. We helped Ben and Lois when they moved into their condo, from their house, and he gave us a lot of stuff, the table included.”

So it seems that I did not fabricate the story about the marble from the Chateau Laurier although there does seem to be some mystery surrounding how our ancestors came by the marble. I can assure you that this slab would be much too heavy to hide under your tuxedo jacket on your way out of the hotel after a fancy dinner. Thievery, then, is out of the question.
