“I played guitar in a rock n’ roll band called The Sultans. We made a couple records and a little money. A couple years back I found one of our cuts, not even our big hit, on an oldies compilation album.”

“When I was 16 I sold budget sports apparel at a store called ‘Gertz. I was a pretty girl and I was a great salesperson. If I was wearing it, I could sell it.  Back then it was camel’s hair coats and plaid skirts. They flew out of the store.”

“I was a good bowler when I was young. My best game was a 279. I hung out at a bowling alley a half block from my house, and got offered a job there as a mechanic, fixing the pin setting machines. It was a good job and an important place for me. I even met my wife there.”
