What I Used to Watch

I would watch the Ten Commandments movie every year around Easter. I’d watch it with my family. I used to love it. I liked a lot of things. My living room was a regular living room. My couch was black. It was leather. I watched it with Camille, in the family house. We had two baby birds and beautiful little dogs. Chihuahuas. The dog was alright. He was nice. He used to curl up next to us as we were watching TV. We used to watch a lot of shows.

My mother and father would watch with us. They didn’t stay too long because they were very busy people. That’s the whole thing in a nutshell, especially with my mother. I liked Lassie too. My father was an animal lover too. He would never, never hurt any animals. Never. Thank God too. It was a nice thing about him.

Donkey Serenade, Mario Lanza

I liked to listen to Mario Lanza playing his song on my record player. I was cleaning and cooking and I would stop what I was doing and just sing along. My mother loved him too. She was a singer. A soprano. She was into all opera music. She was very versatile. We had lots of musicians on record.

I would sing with my mother. I take after her, but I don’t take after my father too much. My father would say, “Now when I get in here, you make sure you don’t give anyone any hell.” I asked him, “How do you sing like mom?” He said, “Don’t worry about it.” And sure enough I got it. I could sing too.

My father loved to listen to her. Sometimes, he would sing along with the music that she’d play, but it was mostly, “La la la la la.” Not seriously. He would mess my mother up when he’d try to sing along with her.

Music Memories

We had a radio. I like Ella Fitzgerald. I like anything that. I had a nice record player. We would listen to all the beautiful music. I liked everything. You get a nice phone and you could go all day. Beautiful. I didn’t dance or anything. I would just look at them and watch them.

I would go to a lot of plays and musicals. I used to tell her keep quiet and listen. She would tell me, “I am listening.” They only have five songs in a concert. Jimmy my nephew came out to see us.

My father and my mother would come into my room and see me getting into the music. They were playing all this beautiful music. My mother and father didn’t want me listening to their music.
