The Persaks were our extended family and therefore Mike was like my big brother. Mike was in charge of walking me to school each morning, but he and his friends didn’t want someone five years younger tagging along, so he would walk with me for a few blocks then tell me one of the houses on our walk had a witch living there. There actually was an older woman who lived in the green house and she use to sweep her stoop or sit there with her black cats. Mike would tell me to go one way and he would go pass the “witch’s house” to make sure she didn’t come after me. He would tell me to run to school as fast as I could. He told me I could never tell our families or she’d come get me during the night. I believed him for a long time until one day while driving with my parents we passed the green house, I told them that’s where the witch lived and they asked who told me that. That’s when I realized Mike had been just trying to ditch me.

Enjoy fishing with Uncle Johnny and Blackjack. I hope you catch lots of fish.
