221. If the mob is after you just change from a grey hat to a blue hat and they’ll never find you.

I went out to dinner tonight with Ronnie and Mary Moreno, Allen Rubin’s widow.

It was a really nice girl’s night out. We chatted about the music business, the difference between Mary’s loss and mine, a bunch of other things like all the new things we all hoped to try.

We eventually got around to our backgrounds. Although I’ve known Ronnie for a lot of years, Mary is a new friend. She happened to mention that she’s from Chicago and Ronnie asked her what her father did.

“He was a gangster. In fact we had to leave Chicago because Al Capone had taken out a hit on him.”

Our eyes almost popped out of our heads.

“Did he get killed?”

“No, we moved to Washington and he changed our names. Our original name was Marino and he changed it to Moreno”

  1. Busted! Thank God the Capone gavones are all dead, or I’d be looking over my shoulder right now. Love you, Mattie, and I had so much fun with you and Ronnie last night.
