My friend Al Powers recently posted a status update on Facebook that caught my eye.
Al wrote that he went back to the neighborhood for the St. Patrick’s Day parade and to pay a visit his family.
His mom had mentioned that the “new people” in the neighborhood use the word “leftovers” to describe the residents that still live there.
We’re talking about the ones who go back as far as the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
The people born and raised in the neighborhood.
Still not sure what to think of this description.
When I think of “leftovers,” all I can remember is when my mother would make a nice dinner on a Sunday afternoon, then the following day, we’d have the same thing for dinner.
Come on man…
HEY YOU, READER OF CONTAINER DIARIES…
Take a minute to vote for the game of the week.

Every vote counts!
Thanks to Al Powers for the following information.
There will be a mass for the late Howie Bischoff on Sat. November 22 at 10:30AM.
This memorial mass will take place at Holy Name church.
Hooley and Mike Purdy should reach out to Debi Mazar and invite her to the stickball game on September 20. I watched her show, ‘Extra Virgin’ yesterday and they look like a great family.
Mazar lives in the neighborhood but grew up in Queens – I am sure she is well aware of stickball.

Special thanks to my main man Al Powers. Some of the good guys from the neighborhood hanging out outside the yard.
Can you name them?
