Lane Theater, New Dorp, Thanksgiving Time '50 Some Robert Sheridan bobsheridan I had the loveliest girlfriend, Helen S., from Westerleigh, who I left to come to California. Brought her back late one night only to meet her mom on the porch steps, to tell me how dare I bring dear Helen back so late, she's a such a nice girl, 'n all.

There was no arguing about Helen being the nicest of girls, but she wanted to stay out as late as I did.

An Old StatNisland custom.

I retreated as fast as circumstances allowed, and never once thought that how late a girl stayed with you had anything to do with how nice she was, except that the later she stayed, the nicer she was.

Helen, if you're out there, all my love.
