Shootin' the Breeze

and random targets

Jersey Girl

My wife and I went to the movie, Jersey Boys, last weekend.  We really enjoyed it.  The singing group, The Four Seasons, produced many enduring hits. 

I did not grow up on The East Coast and so the Jersey scenes did not bring back childhood memories for me.  Sugar, however, felt some connection because, though a Texan at heart, having grown up (mostly) in Texas, she was born in New Jersey and lived there until she was in third grade.  Her parents are both from that area, so she still has many relatives there.  Half of those relatives are of Italian heritage, like all the members of The Four Seasons.

My Miss Texas is bi-cultural.  She also is capable of imitating a Joisey accent as well as the Texas accent at the other end of the linguistic spectrum.  I kinda like it.

  1. We went to see Jersey Boys as well last weekend. My wife is from New Jersey, and although I am not, I did live there for a number of years. I had the opportunity to meet Nick Massi several times, an association I made through my brother in law. He had a great voice even in later years. Wish he were still around so I could find out more about his years with the Four Seasons. He was fairly tight lipped about it when I knew him.
