And there are other stories besides those about Gigi… In fact, “the boys” have several to tell:  like how Jeff and Freddie Martin were in the attic of Freddie Martin’s house (or maybe over the garage?) with their bb guns and were shooting out the windows on the Yankee Workshop.  And when the owner came over with the cops to complain, Gigi insisted that “it can’t be my boy – he would NEVER do that!” It was much later that my Dad actually fessed up…

And then there’s the other story about the round house that used be up the street from the house – my Dad and others (I don’t remember who… anyone?) would take cats up to the top story and then drop them from the four story height to listen to them yowl all the way down… my Dad even has a photo of the round house at the house!
