When Cousin Brucie kept his word

My own cousin Pete reminded me about this tale,
One time Helen McNally, my friend Paul's kid sister asked
Cousin Brucie for an 8 x 10 autographed glossy outside
370 Ocean Parkway. He told her he didn't have one with
him, and she should come back the next day at the same
time for it. And being a man of his word, there he was
the next day waiting outside his building with the
autographed photo to give her.

Helen proudly showed it to all her friends at
Ditmas JHS that afternoon.

Brucie also parked the wildest cars on the service road
of Ocean Parkway, including a yellow Plymouth Superbird
(like the one in the photo) that WABC gave him to drive.
That car would be worth well over two hundred
thousand dollars today.

Don't you just love stories
about people that keep their word.
It just gives you faith,
doesn't it?
