Grew up in Rancho Park. Had a tree house where the circus set up camp and is now Nordstrom's. Moved to the "country" in '84 (South Ontario, CA), but still have an office on Pico. Was member of Lion's Club...but it folded. Unihi S'57. Am now an official announcer for US Figure Skating Championships et al. Retired but very busy.

Growing up in Rancho Park, I remember:
Everything. But specially having a fight with Bobby Driscoll ("Boy With Green Hair") in the alley behind 10960 W. Pico, in 1950. And the night Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood pulled up at 10956 W. Pico in a limousine for a bottle of champagne to celebrate getting together, again. I was clerking at "Sal's".
