A story from Porter Road: Many of the girls in the neighborhood took Saturday dancing lessons at Miss Von Dohlen”s, across the street from me, and she also invited some boys to join one year. Three brave souls showed up for lessons: Gary O’Brien (teacher’s son), Bobby Cutting (grandparents lived next to me), and Jim Flannery. The yearly recital was held at Payson (?) Hall, on the second floor above stores in Cushing Square, Belmont. The three boys danced to a rousing rendition of “Turkey in the Straw”, and received some well deserved applause! Smiles all around! I know I am talking for all the Porter Road “alumni”: Thanks for the childhood, Jim Flannery.
