Stay strong. Stay positive. Stay safe…
The corner of Fuller Place and Windsor Place. Legendary Whiffle Ball games were once played here.
Frankie Cullen was by far the best whiffle ball player in the neighborhood.
He was a force at the plate. George Brett-like.
Frankie was a left-hander who could hit for power and also slap a double or triple in the gap.
Those were the days my friend…
Hope everyone does the right thing during these difficult times. Stay safe and wash your hands. Practice social-distancing.
Me? I’m chillin’ in the crib. Only go out for Starbucks drive-thru. To be honest, I could go for a slice from Joe’s on ninth avenue…
Many people give reminders on what to do during these tough times. Here’s mine:
1-wash your hands 2-listen to music 3-exercise, stretch 4-call a friend on the phone 5-laugh, smile 6-watch a movie 7-deep breath it 8-read 9-stay positive/less negative 10-keep going… We got this!
Not only is the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Manhattan cancelled, but it looks like the Brooklyn parade is cancelled too.
My cousin Lenny Melfi would have celebrated his 54th birthday today. But 7 years ago he passed away. I think of him every day. He had the heart of a lion. Lenny was tough and most of all, he cared about people.
Rest in peace my friend…
