Can you believe it? This is almost the end of May 2021. What happened
to January, and February? Days are passing to fast for me. For that matter, what
happened to 1999? and 1960?
I was thinking about Dudley Street this morning. We knew everyone on the block
and held parties almost every Friday and almost everyone on the block came. I built
a stereo sound system from a kit and did a few things in our basement so we could
dance. Sometimes during the summer months the party lasted until Sunday morning.
We all drank to much, but it was okay. No one had to drive home, just manage the
hill back home. During the evening if I was checking on my kids, someone would
ask to check on theirs. Dave and Norma lived across the street from us and Dave would
come over as late as 11 a clock at night and we would play cribbage for a few hours.
Gerry and I moved out of Dudley street to a new home several miles away. One night
there was a knock on the door and there was Dave and Norma. I almost cried. They
knew the door would be open, even that late at night.
