The Early Years of my Childhood
My earliest memory is living at 52nd & Catherine St. where my father owned a Deli. I remember the Deli was rather small and outside there was a bubble gum machine where you put in a penny and received one gumball. I remember wanting a gumball and not having a penny so I found a rock and broke the glass and all the gumball came out. My Dad was really mad!! I also remember a man used to come into the neighborhood and you would sit atop of his pony and have your picture taken. my mom would dress me up in a cowboy outfit.
