Angeloís become
a wild animal
on our crazy streets.  

Sally and Felix
canít do a thing
with the kid.  

He wears his hair long,
and worse than that,
he dresses funny,

with black wool socks
pulled up to his knees,
and a knit wool hat


pulled down
over his ears
in Julyís heat.  

Heís definitely
distinctive
and different.  

Actually,
he fits in well
in our hood.  

So whatís to worry?

Apparently, nothing.  Dr. Angelo turned out just fine.

Thanks dear Alison,

Yes he has turned out well.  It just goes to show you, you can't tell a book by it's cover.

Love Bobby

Thanks dear Ida,

Yes, it's a pity.  Some people start out with such promise, then they go to school, and go completely to the dogs.

Love Bobby

Teenagers do the strangest things, even if they are not comfortable ... I imagine myself horribly itching with the woollen hat and socks in July!!

A good one ... especially because we know Angelo succeeded so well in life.

Love,
Margherita

Thanks Prasad,

I pleased you can relate to this.  BTW, Angelo is a very kind and thoughtful person.  You'd like him a lot.

Thanks dear Margherita,

Angelo did that to be different.  He's always had a soft spot in his heart for those that are not accepted, and are different.

There are many kids like Angelo that wear outlandish clothing.  What is wrong with that!
