So how did our merchants cope with all this?
Which brings us to the baking Devlins.... Before I rip into Caroline the "Gourmet Baker", let me get this out out of the way first. What they experience, is what every ethnic family I have ever known that owned a business, ever went through. If you are the child of a restaurant owner, baker or delicatessen, you have no life. After school and homework, you help in the family business, as it will be partially yours one day, you have no holy days off regardless of faith as your mates might know them, vacations are a luxury and you do not get to play with your friends from school like a regular child. But don't feel too sorry for people like these, they become the hardest grafting people with the some of the best work ethic and community spirit you will ever know. If they promise you something, they will never let you down knowingly.
