I went to the Vaughn Monroe concert last night
(Dan Gabel's March 2, 2014 Master's recital) in Boston and both
Candy and Christy were there. We were all close friends growing up. I was at their house all the time.
We were young and a little
wild. I mentioned some things to Christy that she had forgotten about.
West Newton house was a lot of fun. Vaughn used to take his Indian
motorcycle and run it up the ski hill which is also a 250-yard par
three golf hole at Brae Burn Country Club. In the basement they had an fire
box that was used to burn trash. The walls caught on fire and Vaughn
and I put the fire out before the fire department got to the house! Christy's mother died last year, and I can still hear her voice
yelling, "Christina!" whenever we got into something she didn't
The concert was great; lots on
memories brought back of our childhood!
