The moon in New York City The moon as a kid. "Ode de Meat Loaf" - the perfume his mother used Getting in the car and taking a ride under the full moon "I shot the moon" - Shep shoots 2 BBs at the moon and takes credit for it. Walking bridges. Shep tells about walking across the suspension bridge between Cincinnatti and Kentucky at 2 o'clock in the morning.
