P.S. Mouse, we did NOT get the bread truck that we lived in for years (and our son was born in) from Dick Ellsworth. He had a yellow panel truck that had collages glued all over the side. We had a turquoise blue 1956 International harvester bread truck that we bought in 1974 after we returned from Europe. We bought it in L.A. where it's former life had been an ice cream truck (which fired up Randy's imagination). He and I built the little house inside it and of course on those wintry nights in Yosemite one could find me baking chocolate chip cookies in our oven so that we could keep warm under our down bags. We had an Aladdin lamp (which I still have) that was suspended from the ceiling and Randy used to read Sherlock Holmes stories out loud to me while we huddled under our down bags eating those cookies. Anyway after Ariel got too big for the three of us to continue to live in it, we sold it. And also that is where I made all those bagels that Rick Sylvester may remember eating.

Dick's truck! I remember that some of the photos included in the collage on it's side were a bit, well, very pornographic. A ranger instructed Dick to cover them up. He did...with cardboard flaps saying " do not look"

I wish more pics...no one could afford photography back then. The few photos I have probably cost a buck each in those days. Beer and dope was WAY more important.

Mouse, those early skateboard pics and the whole cruising thing brought back a lot of memories for me. I made my first skateboard in '59 that way. I jacked one of my sister's roller skate and nailed it onto a 2X4. I lost a lot of skin in the next bunch of years when those steel wheels and later, the clay composite ones, would instantly stop when they hit the smallest pebble or what have you.

I spent most of my high school years hanging out here
