HI, BOB! YOU MIGHT REMEMBER ME AND MY BROTHER, FRANK. WE LIVED ON OCEAN AVE. ABOVE THE LITTLE MARKET AT OCEAN AND VICTORIA. I REMEMBER EVERYTHING THAT YOU REMEMBER. I REMEMBER STEALING BOOZE FROM SELMI'S. I WENT TO RIORDAN HIGH. MY BEST FRIEND WAS JACK MCKENNA. I REMEMBER THE WHOLE URBANO DRIVE CROWD. I'M STILL IN TOUCH WITH RICH FACCIOLA.
THE FIRST TIME THAT MY MOM EVER SAW ME SMOKING, I HAD JUST LIT ONE UP AND WAS LEANING AGAINST A LIGHT POLE IN FRONT OF THE EL REY WHEN A K CAR ROLLED BY AND THERE WAS MOM LOOKING AT ME FROM A WINDOW. I'M STILL IN TOUCH WITH BETTY HONTALES FROM THE EL REY COFFEE SHOP THROUGH AN OLD GIRL FRIEND THAT SHE'S FRIENDS WITH. HOW ABOUT REX RHINEHART? REMEMBER HIM? WE STILL SEE JIMMY KILGARIFF NOW AND THEN.
SPEAKING OF HOMEWOOD TERRACE: DO YOU REMEMBER JAMAE HEATLY?
HOW ABOUT RONNIE RUSS, TED SOLIS AND ROGER KOONS? I RETIRED AND MOVED TO PALM DESERT. MY BROTHER IS IN MARIN AND I GET UP THERE A FEW TIMES A YEAR. WOULD LOVE TO GET TOGETHER FOR A COFFEE (DON'T DRINK ANYMORE). ALL MY BEST,
RUSS
