WHEN I WAS 8-OR 9 WE WERE LIVING WITH MY GRANDPARENTS.MY GREAT UNCLE JOHNNY, WHO WAS IN ASYLUM FOR DRINKING ABOUT EVERY 3 OR 4 MONTHS HE WOULD ESCAPE AND COME TO THE SMALL TOWN MY GRANDPARENTS LIVED IN. HE WOULD THEN CALL MY GRANDFATHER AND SAY I AM AT THE BAR COME GET ME. MY GRANDFATHER WOULD GO GET HIM AND WOULD COME HOME 4 DAYS LATER. ON THE WAY OUT THE DOOR HE ASK MY FATHER IF HE WANTED TO GO.
