Re: Fishing for Shad in Sacramento CA
Healdsburg, a block west of the Golf Course. Subdivision was in its early stages and really thought 'hard' about purchasing right on the second Fairway. As luck would have it one of my Regional Supervisors did live on a fairway and warned me away. Asked if I Golfed?
'My kids collect the balls that fall in our yard, they must have 2 or 3 hundred. Like to buy some?'
'Yup, how much?'
TWENTY FIVE CENTS EACH!!!!!!
Didn't buy them all, but damned close ... which explained '36 handicap.'
For context, 'never smoked,' well, smoked but never that 'stuff.' Next door Neighbor had an, for a lack of words?, Active 'Garden.'
Show you how 'dense' I am ... doing a Potluck (did lots of them and still correspond on a regular basis) ... "What kind of plant is that?"
Nope, never was a hippie even though I may have looked like one in my younger days, the philosophy never took.
I did live in the middle of a bunch of them, and worked with a bunch of them (high end finish carpentry/woodworking). I found that I like hanging around with them, I disagree with their politics and general views but enjoy their stories.
Plus I found another use for them that I bet you have also but just never defined it.
Sandwiches... Yup, sandwiches.
I found a use for hippies in my life and that use is them making me a sandwich.
Two of the things I miss most about northern CA are the wonderful hippie sandwich shops and the fresh fruit stands.
