I’d be driving my car around and there was my dad, stumbling down the sidewalk, drunk. Every so often, we’d bring him over to my sister Bobbi’s house and she would clean him up, but it would never last. Mom was doing much better. Not only did she have her own real job, she met a guy, Mike Majerovwych. He was a big Russian bear who escaped the Ukraine after the Soviet army slaughtered his family while Mike hid in the basement with his baby. He ran away on foot and gave the baby to a couple in a village on his way.
The last straw was when Mike butchered a hog in the front yard and brought the head in to show everybody. Betsy freaked out. She ran off and wouldn’t come home for hours. I couldn’t take it anymore. Betsy’s dad had a trucking company with three dump trucks in Rochester, New York. He didn’t collect garbage, but he hired his trucks out to the city. Betsy’s brother, my pal and new brother-in-law, Bucky, was driving one. “Betsy, call your dad,” I said. ” Bucky’s truck-driving was a pretty new job for him.
My father shipped out as a paratrooper. He’d never even been in an airplane and suddenly he’s jumping out of them. On his first jump, over a battlefield in France, his parachute went way off course. He tangled in trees and smashed his face into a tree trunk. He had a Tommy gun and, as he was coming down, he was scared, so he sprayed the ground with bullets. He banged into the tree and broke his jaw. He cut himself down. He dug a hole, and stayed in a foxhole for a few days. His jaw was killing him.
