And in this corner...defending her title...
weighing in at 112 pounds...from Bayonne, New Jersey...
Adaammm's Mommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

I'm really upset!
You and Maria had a fit when I told you I'd have to stay at your place for a month. So I called my friend and I only had to stay 2 weeks at your house! Yet, Annette, when she was there for 2 months, you both were happy to see her leave!
Now, she's coming out for July and August and she'll have to have use of a car too so Maria will have to take you and pick you up from work. Plus, her airfare and all the food she buys.Why is there such a discrepency between how you treat me and her mother?

Sunday, Wednesday, Friday

Three letters. One topic. Same week.
You ready?

The Jewish newspaper in LA at the newsstand on Fairfax near Canter's, they will have ads for music teachers at the various temples. Their requirements are not the same as public schools. If you're interested, this will give you a salary and a lot of paid vacation time to pursue other things. You could sell the pianos in the summer when school is closed. With your background at the Hebrew Academy, they will love you!
Did Maria get the priority mail I sent her?
P.S. I'm thinking of coming to LA to see you on Labor Day which is the beginning of September. I have a week's vacation. Is that all right? Please let me know so I can buy my ticket.

I'm just concerned that you won't have the security of a salary if it's only commission. If you worked in a school as a music teacher, you would have a salary and benefits. What benefits do they give you?
If you have a show Saturday night, how can you work all day Saturday? Maybe you only have to work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday? Yes?

Do you want to have the hectic life of a salesman? Why wouldn't you want a job with job security and vacations and bonuses and such? Teaching in a private school like a temple school can do that. What happened to that job with Scott to score his movie? You never keep me on top of these things.
It's your life so please forgive me to be so presumptuous as to tell you what to do. I just want life to be fulfilling for you so whatever you choose to do, I am behind you.
Did you know your father was considering on going back to Medical School just before he got sick and he was in his early 40's?

Maybe They're Looking For A Heart-Throb

That's right. You heard her.
Go wild!

Maybe you could send a tape to Fenster with a photograph of you.
All the teenagers would go wild when they see you and hear you!
What can you lose?
Maybe they're looking for a Heart-Throb!

I'm Very Serious

For my mother, they're as constant as the Four Seasons...
Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Only here, they're better known as-
Aunt Bonnie, Uncle Michael, Alisa and Saul.

March 14, 1988
Dear Adam,
Don't tell Bonnie any of your business unless you want everyone to know.
She likes to talk to people. It makes her feel important.
Don't ever let Michael in your apartment. He's no good and he'll steal anything you have when you're not looking. I'm very serious. I won't let him in mine and Bonnie told me she won't let him in hers.
You better believe if he shows up there, it's for no good.
Is Alisa working or going to school? What is she doing? What are her goals?
Saul, my landlord, is a bastard and after June, I will be out of here.
