Stacked

Walking in Belmont Shore with Uncle Franco & Uncle Eddy

I sorta knew what it meant. . .

Uncle Eddy and Uncle Franco took me for a walk on the main street in Belmont Shore one Sunday (my mother made them). My Uncles both had problems with their necks that day; they kept spinning uncontrollably.

Their jaws had problems, too--they kept falling open for no apparent reason.

She was older than I was. Maybe 18. I knew she was more grown up than the girls at school. She was wearing a sweater as I recall. Uncle Franco and Uncle Eddy would remember every detail.

As she approached, Franco and Eddy started poking each other. That's when I heard the word "stacked".

I saw Gina Lollobrigada on the Ed Sullivan show that night.

I put two and two together . . .

Uncle Jack had a new wife every Christmas. That's what my mom and aunts introduced them as to me and my cousin. They didn't like any of them except Doris.

Ha ha ha! My dad grew up in a "Wapp" neighborhood in Providence Rhode Island. He talked like that all the time. He's been gone almost 20 years. Reading that made me smile and remember our beloved Papa. Thanks!
