JIMMY BRESLIN

RIP J.B.

Heck of a writer.

Jim Dwyer of the New York Times with a tribute on Breslin.

I became friends with his daughter Kelly back in the early 90’s; she was cool people. Poor girl passed away way too young.

Back in the day I think Breslin took part in a beer commercial at Farrell’s?

CHILDHOOD LIVING…

Joe Lee, my buddy from back in the day came out to visit for the weekend.
