Ernie Banks

Ernie Banks passed away today-

and a part of my youth was swept away…

He didn’t play for my team,

but he sure did make it feel like a dream.

I feel older today as I ponder old Ernie…

he was REALLY an-important-part of my uniquely American journey…


Nut Tree Videos from the Early 60’s

As a kid growing up in Marin County, the Nut Tree was one of my family’s favorite places.

Because no one in my family pulled out the 16mm camera and old videos until recently, you’ll see that much of the video quality has degraded.

Alas, better late than never!
