The Old Neighborhood

The Old Neighborhood

My daughter and I took a car trip to our old neighborhood the other day. What a surprise for us both. There's a nice new restaurant where ours used to be. The building is the same but, the renovations were great. The green apartments where we first lived when we came to FL are now a soft purple with black wrought iron on the balcony railings. Simon Schwartz Grocery is gone, Wileys cleaners is gone, the 'Rent A TV' shop is gone. The Pottery Shoppe is gone, and the gas... Read More

Aunty Irene's Quilt

Most places we went we shared a room that had twin beds.

This particular friend was known as Billy the Bus, due to his job as a bus driver, to distinguish him from others bearing the same name. Long after his retirement the nickname remained.
Eventually Bill met our ultimate fate, and his funeral was held in... Read More

We slept outside on starlit, summer nights when the house was unbearable—no air- conditioning back then, and it was definitely over 100 degrees most summer days. No doubt the crickets, spiders, and no telling what else, crawled over us all night  lying on  an old quilt spread out.   Of course, my brother & I, and the cousins giggled ‘til much later than our regular bedtimes since we were out of earshot from the folks.
The sun was bli... Read More

The Old Brick House part one

The old brick house. When I was growing up a part of my childhood was spent living in a big old house on the corner of East Smiley Avenue and Third Street.  My mother rented the bottom half of the old Victorian brick home.  We had 2 bedrooms a living room dinning room and small kitchen.  Four porches, two side yards a back yard and front yard.  I shared the bedroom with my brother, and my sister.  Brother's bed was on one wall a single bed with an old iron be...
