Of course, every visit would start with a visit to the candy store – in this case it was actually a liquor store across the street. Even so, he would always return happy with a brown paper bag full of goodies. Once he got his sugar fix he usually grabbed a microphone and sang whatever he wanted and looked at us like we knew exactly what to play – and somehow he was usually right. “
