Van Nuys Boomers Farewell Post

I would like to thank everyone who visited and read our blog over the past 6 years. I would also like to thank those who contributed with articles and comments. This has been a fun project and we have reconnected with many old friends. The blog will remain online and I will make sure it is monitored so it remains up and visible.

I remember Tucker, he lived on Orion St, Just before Vanowen
must have been mid to late 60s early 70s, Used to go to his house and they're were pictures all over his walls.
He was a heck of a guy always in cowboy close and boots and that big hat and a badge.
I haven't been back to van Nuys in 30 plus years. But I just go to thinking of the people and that area and he popped into my head and this is where it took me
My 2 older brother and a sister went to Birmingham, The Grammers, about the same time you guys did. Sorry I was younger and went to school in Encino. Used to live on Aqueduct ave.

oh and you forgot Dales market, Sepulveda near Victory, And Beeps Sherman way and Balboa I believe

It all seems like yesterday to me. My friend Mike worked at Dales. I married his sister.

Seems wierd that nobody ever post anything here. Any clues as to what I'm missing. Other than my mind of course. It went up in smoke in the 60's. In fact without this brain damage I probably would have been president haha
