Readers Digest April 1975ReadersDigestCover 


In April of 1975 Readers Digest ran a feature article that compared two family's, one in America and one in Italy It was named the Fisher's and the Franchis.

A great once in a lifetime experience to be on the cover of Readers Digest. 

Charlie and I traveled to Italy three times to visit our new friends. They didn't speak English and we could not understand Italian so they hired an interpreter each time we visited.  His wife was afraid to fly so they never came to visit us.
