“What’s so special about 1953?”
For one, Bob Wisoff bought his first car. A ’53 Chevrolet Bel Air.
September 4, he and Evalyne welcomed their second child.
On the same date, West Indian native, Clothilda Jacobs delivered her 5th child, Lawrence. It was the twelfth day of New York’s longest recorded heatwave.
The Chevy is long gone.
Lawrence went on to delight audiences as Sweathog Freddy “Boom-Boom” Washington with a cocky grin and, “Hi there.”
Bob’s daughter, Rochelle, married and raised three sons. She still creates art, literature, and, occasionally, a bit of havoc.
It was a very good year.
