  1. When I was a boy of 7 I lived on the same block of N. Orange Grove as Sammy (1943). He once dressed me up as a hobo for Halloween and I won best costume at Laurel Avenue Grammer School. He smoked a lot, saved the tin wrappers the tobacco came in. I remember large balls of tinfoil that he turned in to the war effort. I liked him a lot.
