Well we struggled along and then he was laid off his job and then there was a strike. My friend had moved California. I thought well if he can’t find a job in New York, maybe he can find one in California. Why I thought this is beyond me, but he thought it was a great idea. Little did I know that he could have had a good job with the Carpenters union, but he actually turned it down, but didn’t tell me. I didn’t find out until years later. He was a liar you see, and I was pretty trusting. I also found out that he had been going to the local night club, that I never had been taken too on his boys night out with the boys. thought they went to the local bar and had a beer. Wrong again. Found that out years later that he was meeting up with a girl from his old neighborhood.
