I recently was at a Customer's house, where I met an older Italian Gentleman....he was quite friendly and had a handshake like I had stuck my hand in a Vise ! All along I'm thinking, what did this guy do for a living to possess this type of strength??? I soon notice him in his backyard digging a fence post, with so much ferociousness that he looks like he's digging out trapped Miner's !!! So on my lunch break I ask him, what did you do for a living and he replies, I was a Butcher....oh yeah I said, my Grandfather was a Butcher too and he then starts rambling off all the Supermarket's he worked at. He states I worked at "King Cole" for 13 yrs and the story was about to get interesting....Ya see Vinnie's Dad Alphonso ran that joint, so I ask him....Did you know Alphonso Cusano and he looked at me, like he had seen a Ghost....you mean "Al" he say's, that guy R.I.P. taught me everything I know !!! Did you know his Son Vinnie I ask and he say's know him ??? I'm his Uncle and he was in Kiss !
Well, we talked in great depth for the 30 minutes and he was quite amazed how much I knew about Vinnie, he went back in time to when Vinnie would be playing his Father's Steel Guitar when they stopped over to visit....I must say, it truly ended up being a good day at work, for a change !!!
