Old Dad…this is for you!
Perusing photos from a trip to California, I found these photos:
First is the home in East Palo Alto where we lived while I was in third grade through half of sixth grade.
It didn’t have the fence when we lived there and the grass was green. The front room with the slider was a garage. I remember my brother, Dan, and I getting our heads washed with Desenex shampoo (horrible stuff) because we had ringworm. Brother Tim was born when we lived here.
The we moved to Mountain View.
I lived here until I went away to Willamette University in Salem, OR. Then I lived here off and on for my junior and senior years at San Jose State until I married Charlene. Notice there is no lawn. Dan and I each mowed half of it every Saturday with a reel style push mower. Those were the days.

I Remember some of that stuff
A few additional notes on the house of n MV:
There was a basketball hoop above the garage door. Many hours…
Major Mike painted the entire exterior one summer, having foolishly agreed to do so for, I think, $50, thinking that it was a lot of money (it was!) before discovering that it was even more work!
The deodar cedar, the huge tree in the foreground, began its stay with us as a Christmas tree in about 1958.
