    P.S. I always kept the Bathrooms at work spotless. I could remember my Mother always complaining about the lack of effort of the station owners to keep the bathrooms clean. I was a good mechanic at 16 and was proud of the way all the Ladies came and told me what a wonderful surprise to find someone who care about keeping everything spotless.

    My Father never came home after the war. Not killed but just could not come back to little hick town in Oklahoma.My Mother Sister and I followed a couple of my Aunts to California. We moved to a little hick town in the Mojave desert Red Mountain. Stayed a couple of years. I loved it there. I walked the whole desert barefoot, me and my sisters dog. I hated to move to the big city of Sacramento. One other Aunt was the city dump manager so we lived in big tents with wooden floors and four feet tall side walls. I was happy. I gleaned the dump Dailey find my little treasures My Father did not return from the war. Not dear, just couldn’t do the life of a small town farm boy. So I never saw him again until I was A teen. Then I took all my anger out on him. I was ready for a fist fight told him so. He left and I Neve saw him again. I loved high school, especially FOOTBALL. pretty much an A student. Living around the neighbor hood with different families of my school buddies. So I wanted to support myself I quit school midway thru 10th grade got a job in service station, Worked everyday since and retired 2015.

    1946, our birth year, you could ride down the road in an open convertible with the kids STANDING UP IN THE BACK SEAT and this was acceptable parenting behavior?? We would be jailed immediately and the kids taken away and adopted out if this was observed today.
