I saw two friends from high school tonight. We all lived far from our school in Brooklyn. Buses and subways every day.
George and Johnnie lived in one of New York’s toughest neighborhoods. Their folks ran a Chinese take-out restaurant. They lived above the store. I remember visiting.
We were all ham radio operators. The hobby was all consuming.
Today, John lives in Alhambra… wherever that is. I drove there, but I’m still not 100% sure. The 5. The 710. I couldn’t pass a quiz.
George lives on Long Island. Last week he drove from there to here to surprise his brother!
We went to a Chinese restaurant with mainly Chinese clientele and me. Seafood oriented. Very tasty.
We talked about those days. We were so nerdy. We were so innocent. Life was so much simpler.
