Memories of Whittier: Making a Rudder

Julie had pretty eyes and a Hobie 3.5 mètre boat which she sailed at Belmont Shores/Naples. During our budding friendship, I talked her into taking me sailing on a number of occasions. I also talked myself into taking on a big project for her boat.

Meeting the Cowboys of “Rawhide”

It was a bright sunny day. We drove to my grandparents’ home and walked over from there. I was 5 or 6 years old. I remember holding my father’s hand as we made our way over to the Quad. We were standing directly against the stage and I was looking up at Fleming and Eastwood as they spoke. When they finished, my father talked to each of them and then they leaned down and each shook my hand.
