Riassunto: She felt that even at the age of 29 her life was going nowhere and she wanted to get off this damn ride because straight ahead she saw only a dead end. They’d had the relationship for years but for the most part it’s been like a revolving door, in and out of each other’s lives, then back together, picking up the pieces and starting over. Arlene Marie Denali loved Rico James Paradise more than anything; he was her whole life. They’d known each other since they were seventeen. They first met at a corner bus stop in a row house neighborhood. Some guy was pestering her about how nice she was built. Rico busted the guy up. Arlene was girl-next-door-attractive and she grew up somewhat privileged, for this neighborhood at least. Rico got kicked out of high school and military service wanted no part of him. Twelve years later on a sultry summer night in a closed private club on Melrose Street at one in the morning they slow danced check-to-cheek. She held him close in candlelight and a hovering cigarette haze. A love song by the Flamingos, selection B-17, played on the dated jukebox. Arlene dropped the coins in the slot putting things in motion. She just wanted something special in her life and was tired of getting stuck along the way. Holding him so tight Arlene, gave Rico a chance for something in his life. At first, Rico slow-reacted but then a feeling came over him. Johnny Marra, from the Tacony section of the city, had it all. He was young and handsome and his future looked bright. One thing was missing - a girl in his life who wasn’t a little town flirt. Then he met Mary. Over a year later walking along the ocean’s edge at the Wildwoods along the New Jersey shore, he took Mary’s hand in his and asked her to marry him. He told her he would love her and treasure her forever. Time stood still. She said yes and Johnny knew with Mary by his side everything would be good for all days to come. Nothing could tear them apart. Mary told him, “ No matter what we are ever faced with, I would never leave you.” No little town flirt here. Then Johnny had to leave for military service. There is a thread that runs through some of these stories—the need to be connected to someone—the need to have love in your life because, as someone once said, “with love in your life you can do great things.” There is much more than the need for love in your life in Fast Lane Friends. Some real colorful characters who did some crazy things from a row house neighborhood in Northeast Philadelphia. There’s something about a war in 966 A. D. and then tragedy in a second-floor bedroom overlooking a high speed railroad corridor. And some of this stuff you just can’t make up. Like a neighborhood legend who tried to catch a falling air conditioner from a second story window. You had to see this guy when he was all bandaged up. And get this, he wanted another shot at catching it. How insane is that? Oh, and by the way he wanted to invade Cuba with some of the friends he knew who hung out in corner bars. And there’s Chuffy Howell and his dad, Pork Chops, who sucked off winners and losers alike at their card game in their row house basement on Tacony Street. There’s Ronnie the Big Cad leashing his bulldog, Brutus, to a fire hydrant; Brutus is snarling at something down the block. And I really hope Johnny Bala recovered from the molechuk bite he suffered in the desolate New Jersey pinelands while trying to catch the Jersey Devil. Watch out! Looks like some zombies are coming out from the cemetery up on Cheltenham avenue. That’s it for now. I’m stopping here. No more insights. Enough already. Read the book and I will take you on a ride so fast your lips will turn blue. Believe me I will! And what a ride it will be. So sit down and buckle up. Hold on tight because we will be speed-balling down the fast lane. And along the way, we will meet some friends.
