I remember all of mom softball games we would got too. Then after always go to the Celebrity Room for pizza. Then when you worked up a Texaco helping you had to watch me when mom took Beverly to the KISS concert and you gave me a roll of quarters to play pinball and I walk out of there with 600.00 beating the guys at pinball at the age of 5.
