Bingie and I go way back and for some reason I had a memory of the past recently.. I used to live on Baker St in my grandparents’ duplex and we used to play together as neighborhood kids..we lived nearby .. went to Maplewood School.. and all of our families knew each other including his infamous uncle, Mr Karcher, who was the reason the dress code and rules were followed in Gloucester High School.....Sorry to his family.
