Jerry Vilhotti


en year old Johnny could hear no sounds; nevertheless, he listened intently for "Mamasu" who was given that name by Johnny's father telling him it was a very affectionate word for Grandmother; never telling him it literally meant "her mother."   

He always wondered when he called her that why she would go into a rage charging at him with right left combinations attempting to take his head off?  Her moves would have had the "Raging Bull" - De Niro - envious but Johnny's sidestepping and ducking had the eighty-three year old lady reeling off into unbalanced misses but she would not quit having the rest of the summer to do her KO!
