My man showed up in red bank and I know some. You know that, That would be a mild man yeah, the in and out of it ups and downs more like, but we ve been all right but, but I had to make some time for the old man, not knowing where the old man would be frequency wise. And he sounded good on the phone. You know he retired in his wandering. I don't know it's hard to be, beaten miserable, but he he does it, and maybe that's where I get it. I don't know, but but we go out to dinner at this place, Gitano right there in red bank as mayor of a part time assistant, frank, is dead ones at joint and said: go by there I gotta fuckin tell you man, you can't get italian food, any air, like you can and like these cosy new jersey, new york, I mean that just places just places fuck, an amazing out of its the water or what? But god dammit. It was good chicago to log out of a give chicago, but that's it
where the immigrant population of italians, as with four percent centuries and generations, is where we find the good italian food, and also, I think new york water- has something to do with it. But anyways might talk about food and talk about my father's. Oh, I didn't know where it was at so me and my dad said This restaurant. We pick me up the train station. I can usually tell agony help where my father's, at mentally and emotionally from about fifty feet away what just by his posture the aura of his energy I can feel it because I know the guy's my dad, so I can feel the action of his sadness from about fifty feet, I could feel the the sort of you're non threatening middle frequency, where he just sort of like neither here nor there, and I can feel the mania But from his is posture I can feel that cause he's.
