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 (so to speak) . . .

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.
