Born in Cottage Hospital on Minner Avenue, Oildale (eerily it is now a funeral home, yikes). Lived all 58 years of my life here and love it. Retired Electrician, all I ever did, my father also. Made many, many friends in life, several are outstanding Professional Musicians. I remember Buck Owens would pat my head when I ran into him at the local drugstore and places around Oildale and in Woody at the eatery later in life. Spent many evenings dancing at Trout's back before I wound up in a wheelchair. Vern even let me run a tab, lol. Need to get back down there some night as I hear some of my old buddies still play music there. Fond memories of days gone by. Sigh.
