My mother would cook sauce from scratch. We ate and drank all day. Wine, beer and soda for us. The feast lasted all day.
I remember once saying to my mother, Ma.. I saw these people.. they came into the park with a little basket. They pulled a blanket from the basket and sat down Then they took a sandwich from the basket and began to eat it. She replied "They don't know how to eat."
This is a painting of myself with my Father and brother in front of "Nathan's" world famous for its hot dogs.
I remember how popular it was . For 25 cents I would go and come home from Coney Island in the summer. That would cost 5 cents each way. With the remaining 15 cents I would buy 2 hot dogs and a rootbeer soda. My father would thake my brother and me there and treat us to hambutgers, french fries and custard as we called the soft serve in Brooklyn.
