Don't Watch My Feet

 

Another good story From

Master Ron Saturno

There was a gem of a man who once lived in Stockton, Ca. and not that very long ago. Loved by many and respected by everyone lucky enough to have had any contact with him: His name was Bobby Antuna.

I thought of him this Saturday when driving by Lindey's Dough nuts. I remembered sitting one day in Lindey's when Bobby happened to come in for some of the localy famous potatoe flour dough nuts.

Funny

Let's see how good your Filipino pidgin English is. Try to figure out what Benny Degoosegoose is saying in all these phrases below. You have to remember the

consonants that Filipino's cannot pronounce and use your best slur and dialect to reveal what Benny is trying to say.

...

"Benny, how would you use these words in a sentence?"



1. Tenacious--Bepor you go out, put your tenacious on.

2. Deposit--Call de plahmer. Deposit is leaking.

3. Splat--Oh my goodness, my…

Not your ordinary training...From Ron Saturno

Memiors

Master Ron Saturno

When my wife and I had broken up I was bout 28 years old. I was unemployed and things were getting really tight. My father said one day that someone was looking for help fixing their house in San Jose, Ca. San Jose was about 70 miles from Stockton, where I lived. A lot of people may not know about the unofficial coconut highway. Filipinos will mention to another Filipino that they needed or wanted something and some way and some how the information can…
