We were all new to California and loving it. We were going to Orange High. Scott and Rick graduated in '64 and Mike and I graduated in ' We hit the surf that day and it tested me to the max. I'm sure the others felt the same way, but nobody wanted to say quits first. I recall cutting back one time when the whole ocean floor sand was showing under me. I was in a standing position when the wave broke and dumped me flat standing.
I was having fun. I think it was Mike who quit first with a bloody chest or nose, I don't recall. Rick also was somewhat damaged in the same way,but he kept on.

He also reminded me that we were a curious group as he could not remember us ever drinking alcohol.
I think he is right, for the most part we were pretty sensible. I'll never forget the night that Stewart asked us all to chip in for gas to go to the beach then he took us all home and went out on a date.
Gees we were stupid. That's ok, Rick reminded me of the time Stewart pretended to have forgotten his wallet while eating at Oscars.
We all slyly left the table for one reason and another until Stewart was left at the table to pay his own bill as it should be.
We all stood outside looking in at him. More to come. We spent many of those nights at the fun zone playing arcade games, laughing, eating junk food and having fun.

I don't know if it was the pre-war house or the 31st Street house they said they were on the old switchboard style phones that you listened for the number and type of rings to know when you should pick up your phone to answer it. Unfortunately they were on the same exchange as the local doctor who delivered babies in the middle of the night and had to lobby the phone company to get them a different number so they didn't have to If You Walked Away - Margie Joseph - Margie (CD it ring whenever there was a baby about to be born.
I also think the older phone numbers were only 4 digits not 7 or 10 like we had later on. PS to the phone number conversation - it was Liberty 8 and Midway 6 - I remember that for sure, and they were associated primarily with Costa Mesa addresses.
We lived up in the Costa Mesa section of Newport Heights and both numbers were used on our street. Marilyn Schultz marilynschultz1 gmail. I would very much like to obtain a copy. I wrote to you some years ago. I lived in Balboa from jancastro36 yahoo. The black bottom and others were so good.

Are they still available? Mike had left his real estate biz on the mountain for a few days to play a gig in Washington. Hope it went well for him. He had a great run as an entertainer and was one of the very BEST. The stage at Woody's Wharf was a good vantage point to people watch.
I recall a tragic night when a woman in a party of four, that was sitting at a table next to the glass wall overlooking the wharf and twenty feet from the stage, choked on a bite of steak. With a look of horror on her face, she grabbed her throat, waved her hands, and fell forward into her plate.
I stopped playing and called out to the restaurant staff that we had an emergency at the window. Bartender, Hank vaulted the bar and ran to the woman's side, who was now on the floor. Her son-in-law was giving her mouth to mouth resuscitation.
Hank tried to get him to stop so the Heimlich Maneuver could be administered that would pop out the lodged food, but the hysterical man would not quit.
Hank tried to pull him away and yelled at him, "You're forcing the food down her throat! The paramedics arrived in minutes, but it was too late to save her. The guests at Woody's were an eclectic bunch.
A favorite was the man who would hang out at the bar wearing a stethoscope and often in scrubs, identifying himself as an OB-GYN, named Dr. One memorable night, a man and two women took the half-circle booth, directly in front of the stage.
The women were dressed in expensive-looking, tight, black dresses, the man in a beautiful black suit. He sat at the nine o'clock position, the women at twelve and three. Twelve gazed around the room with a look of disdain at the "peasantry.
A song or two later, she returned with the haughty attitude of a star walking the Red Carpet. Attached to the four-inch heel of one of her black pumps, was a six foot length of white toilet paper that trailed her every step.
She stood at the side of Mr. Nine, who had downed a couple shots while she was away. He stood up, she slid into her spot and he sat down. At this point, I was trying to suppress a laugh and unable to sing and, with most of the rest of the room, watched this trio who were oblivious to being the center of attention. Suddenly, Mr. Nine began convulsing.
He placed his hands over his mouth but that couldn't stop the projectile vomiting as he spewed huge amounts of stomach contents all over and across the Formica covered table. As it ran down onto their laps, Ms. Twelve, using her extended pinkie as a squeegee, tried to push it back to the center of the table and kept yelling, "Ish, Ish. Twelve, at last yelled, "Get Album), you dumb son of a bitch!! Three, the packed house crowd at the bar parted as if for Moses at the Red Sea.
Bringing up the rear and, to her credit, still looking as regal as one could with vomit from her waist to the hem of her black dress, Ms. Twelve walked with measured steps to the exit. Behind her, still attached to her four-inch heel, trailed the six feet of white toilet paper.
Kenny Laursen Videodepo cox. In August, we would rent 1 of the Plummer Court cottages for a week. I was years old back then. Then they tore that block apart and built that ugly condo. I saw the demise of the original Fun Zone. There is now a ferris wheel nearly on the water by the auto ferry. It seems to me that it can't be the original ferris wheel that sat between the bumper cars and the store on the corner.
Does anyone remember how many seats were in the "original" ferris wheel??? I miss the "old" Balboa. And whatever happened to that great big black music box that sat in the "middle" of 3 pinball arcades? And where did all those mechanical games end up??? Oh well Thanks for letting me cry and rant.

Woody had a non-compete clause from the sale of the Wharf and we had discussed using my name and his money. I recall he had a skateboard factory and not loving it. I was performing at the Spindrifter, on the water side of Coast Hiway, near the Arches.
Woody had gone next door to the Italian place Villa??? When I came out of the club, Woody Payne had been hit by a car was lying in the street. Not my favorite memory. I remember, after 2 AM closings at the Wharf, we would sit at the bar, drink, and laugh sometimes until the sun came up. Not to be outdone, instead of removing it, Woody hired another professional to paint "Beer, 5 Cents A Glass" beneath the first sign.
They played gags on each other for weeks. One morning, Woody drove into his parking lot to find eight goats grazing on his roof. One night, a huge Samoan abalone diver took offense at something I had said on mic. He lumbered up to the small, two-foot tall stage, wrapped his massive right hand around my left hand and the neck of my guitar and with his left hand grabbed the front of my shirt, guitar strap, and chest hair and lifted all pounds of me up and off the stage and was going to throw me through the window into the bay.
I could see bartenders Hank and Baer getting ready to come to my aid and probably die with me, when Woody walked up to the mountain and said, "Hey, Man, You're ruining the show.
Put him down or you'll have to leave. As my dangling feet returned to the stage, I gave a silent prayer of thanks to God and Woody for my deliverance. The Reuben E. Lee was my home many months a year for several years. It was a magical place to perform. I was there the night gazillionaire Peter Grace WR Grace tried to buy a seat for dinner and even after offering a huge tip was told it was a 2 hour wait.
He left the Boat, drove away in his limo and on Monday called owner John McIntosh to demand the hostess be fired. The story goes, Mr. McIntosh told him he was going to give her a raise. Grace replied he was going to buy the Reuben E. Lee and fire her AND John. Then John told Peter the boat was not for sale and only a part of the huge holdings of Far West Services.
That was when Grace started negotiations for the purchase of the corporation with a more than tidy sum going to Mr. McIntosh and the other owners. As soon as it became a Grace property, the magic left and the Reuben E. Lee eventually was hauled out to sea and sunk. Shelley Ervin ervinroyse sbcglobal.
