I was 9, Sister Bambi 8, and Brother Tony's 7. Our antique, walk-in cooler transformed into a penny-candy shoppe was called Wee Folk. Mom's antique & interior-design shoppe next door's called Of Cabbages & Kings. I believe that she was President of the Merchants' Assoc. Her name's Jacqueline "Jacquie"Simo RIP, and us Wee Folks' names are Tarya, Bambi and Anthony "Tony," RIP. I remember running free on a most vibrant street amongst such groovy shoppes & things when all'f a sudden our Mom yelled for us to get over to her & now screamed "We gotta go NOW!! Follow me..." and we crouched all'f the way out of her shoppe behind cars, objects, scrambling to get to our car and drive safely outta there!! It's now Dec. 14, 2016, and I'm back living where I was born. Amen. Peace in Love, Tarya (eldest)
