My grandfather James Cirino owned a
butcher shop in Alston, Massachusetts.
Working at our family store on Saturdays
was a big adventure.
Early morning trips to the Everett Produce Market, go in to see "Joe Tomato" for this weeks order.
Riding back to Alston, Pa would let me sit
on the motor cover between him and my
Dad in the front of his white, delivery van.
Very cool stuff for a boy.
Those days were Special.
Most of what I experienced then
you could never do again today.
Tempi Cambi, Times Change
After surviving a heart attack, my grandfather should have retired as his
doctor advised. Being an old school
tough guy he went out one day and bought a business instead.
Mrs. Sherman could no longer run the market after loosing her husband.
My grandfather kept Sherman's name
over the door in memory of the man
who opened the store and built the business.
Thank You Pa
