The kid he bought the doors from....well a kid of 28, like Brendan....is hustling working three jobs.....like Brendan.
Door Guy's great-grandmother moved from Italy to Monterey back in the 20's. She worked in the canneries in Monterey.
The family still has a fishing boat.
Brendan's great-grandfather moved to LA from Ireland, and worked as a ship's carpenter for the canneries in San Pedro and Terminal Island. Brendan's great-grandmother moved from Ireland to Los Angeles, and became a teacher and later the the first woman principal of a school in LA County.
Our family still has books.
The Door Guy lives across the street from White Point School in San Pedro.....where Brendan's great-grandmother taught for 30 years.....
I think that was a good business deal for the boys.....and I am sure there is a lesson there.
Door Guy is coming up for Monday Night Dinner.
