In New York my family and I lived in a house with my mother’s boyfriend Penny, Penny’s brother Alfred, and Penny’s son Paul. Penny was a tall, thin, dark-skinned man. He kind of looked like a boxer because he was very muscular, from many years of working at a horse racetrack. I think he baled hay because he always came home with hay all over his clothes and hair. He also had a stutter that I thought was pretty funny. He would always stamp his right foot and say, “Ahra..ahra..ahra..” before he could get any words out of his mouth. Paul was a tall white boy with blond hair that was always freshly cut into a fade. It looked like the haircut that Vanilla Ice used to wear back in the day. However, it was years before Vanilla Ice came out. Paul’s mother married Penny when she was pregnant with Paul, so he was raised by Penny.
