I had an uncle (long since passed) who was an avid collector/restorer of early automobiles. I was at his house once in the 1950s and he had just acquired a 1903 Cadillac needing much restoration.

I don't think this is the same one he bought, but fully restored this is what a 1903 Cadillac looks like.
Let's Count With Pictures!!! - Page 6 Download
While my uncle was a small time collector, he regularly traded with Bill Harrah (Harrah's casinos). Bill Harrah had a massive collection of antique automobiles in Reno, NV. My uncle arranged for a private tour of Harrah's facility for me and my first wife. You can see the collection here www.automuseum.org

Oh my goodness. If they required a license to operate google it would already be taken away from me. I hope I didn't exasperate you too much, C. Thank you for putting me out of my misery. It had to be done. To Miki, I love Harrahs! So much beautiful road jewelry! That 03' looks like it would be a hoot to drive. And a steering wheel as opposed to a tiller, fancy! What next, electric start?

Oh Miki, that museum looks cool I love that black sporty one with the white walls...… so retro!!!! And the 1903 veteran Caddy, that is amazing! Your Uncle was cool! We spoke about Brooklands near me that has lots of lovely old cars. I love old cars they have so much character. My Helga is a relative baby at 25, but she has character, she squirted the MOT (fitness for the road), tester in the face with coolant once! She was losing coolant and it was coming through the reserve. She never lost much but decided to just as the engine was switched on that morning!

Another cold freezical day I put the window down coz it had foggied up and she refused to put it back up. I think it was coz I was late and I was driving her too hard. Anyway, after about five miles and just parked, (I'd been hitting the 'up' button for ages) and then just before I was going to give up..... she allowed it to go up and it has worked ever since!

Then another time Helga's tailgate would not open. It just would not open! I did not know what I did to upset her. Anyway, off I go to the garage and the man tried to open it, but she refused him too! I spoke to her one morning on the way to work how inconvenient it was and how much I loved her. Well I tried once parked at the hospital but she still did not yield. After a long shift I just naturally went to open her tailgate, it's coz I put my liccle rucksack there coz there spaces are thin..... and she yielded. She has never done that since. Then there was the indicatory thing and oh so much more.... oh Helga!!!!

So, I best do number 56 then. Here it is, now thinking caps on girls!!!!!!


I'm going Americane again for this one, yee-hah!!!

"Joltin' Joe" from Miki's stomping ground by the by, just happened to have a 56 game hitting streak in 1941. Have I redeemed myself, Celia?

Joe DiMaggio - I was so fortunate, baseball wise, to have grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you look at a roster from the 1930s for the Yankees, Dodgers and Giants, you would find many of the ball players who my Father either played against or with in the local baseball league.

My Father played against both Joe and his brother Dom in the Pacific Coast League. I once played catch with Joe when I was 5 years old and he was visiting friends, including my Dad, in Alameda, CA.

The Pacific Coast League was considered to be the third major league, until the Dodgers and the Giants moved to the left, ooops, west coast in the 1950s.

Hmmm, it does seem my images are getting lost in the ether. I posted an image of Messier 58, a 'nebula' (barred spiral galaxy) that Charles Messier had catalogued in 1779 when telescope were not much better than a good pair of eyes. Here is a link:

Each little tidbit of memory recall garners more glimpses into my history. I hoe you don't mind me sharing some of them.

In the late 1960s I lived in a Bay Area town called Menlo Park (about 15 miles from where I now live). The next town to the north is Atherton and this is where Willie Mays lived and still does. There is a road that cuts through many of the towns on the Peninsula named Alameda de las Pulgas (Road of the Fleas [more on this if you ask]).

The next town north of Atherton is Redwood City, where my parents lived and where I grew up. I was driving south on the Alameda after a short visit and as I approached Atherton I saw Willie Mays gold colored convertible Cadillac (he had personal license plates - 'MAYS').

I quickly rolled down my window and waved as he passed by (I doubt he saw me) and I was so happy at seeing him that I blew past the stop sign and ended up in the drainage ditch (no damage except to my ego).
_______________________________________________
Willie McCovey died last month at age 80, in Stanford, CA (adjacent to Menlo Park).

In 1959, a friend invited me to a Giants game at Seals Stadium, the Giant's first home in San Francisco. I was sitting in the stands along the right field foul line when Willie Mac came to the plate. It was his first time as a Giant. The pitcher threw an inside fast ball and Willie Mac hit it off the right field fence so hard that it bounced to the right fielder before he left the batter's box and he was nearly thrown out at first. Willie McCovey was THE Slugger.
From Wikipedia
In his Major League debut on July 30, 1959, McCovey went four-for-four against Hall-of-Famer Robin Roberts of the Philadelphia Phillies with two singles and two triples.

(My Dad played some games in the mid 1930s at Seals Stadium during his brief stint with the Oakland Oaks.)
________________________________________________
The San Francisco Bay Area in the fifties and sixties was a VERY exciting place to grown up and I am glad I have my memories of my time here.

I always like to read your stories, Miki. You're a bit like San Francisco royalty of sorts and it's amazing how much of the social fabric that makes up the rich history of that area has your family woven through it. Keep it coming!

My very ony pony - yay!!!

Ok, this is way too easy:
The Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge – because its Manhattan end is located between 59th and 60th Streets – and officially titled the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, is a cantilever bridge over the East River in New York City that was completed in 1909. It connects the neighborhood of Long Island City in the borough of Queens with the neighborhood of the Upper East Side Manhattan, passing over Roosevelt Island.
Paul Simon wrote a very nice song about the bridge: The 59th Street Bridge Song (feelin' groovy)
Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy.

Hello lamppost, What cha knowing?
I've come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain't cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in' doo-doo, Feelin' groovy.

Got no deeds to do, No promises to keep.
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you, All is groovy.

Paul Simon
