Dear Lucy
That is where we spent some of the happiest days of our lives surrounded by friends in the Quinta. I will never forget when Louise rode the motor scooter down the street, and could not get it started, so a policeman came to her aid. We laughed, as she did not have a driving permit! A good thing for her is that the policeman did not ask her for permit!

Gorge Litticoat is gone, and I can still see him with a cigar in his mouth. His wive Mary Jo is in very poor health, and lives in CA. Mrs. Pech is gone also, and the Pech's used to take us to the beach quite often. I left out Enyapa, the Litticoatt"s Doberman who had a runny nose, so he wore a handkerchief around his neck, so someone could wipe his nose. He was a very nice dog, and he was loved by all. Hal Mac Nichols lived in the Quinta, however, he moved prior to our arrival.

Across from our house were Panagra Pilots. The had some big parties, and one night a wife came to get her husband who was a party goer, only someone emptied a bucket of water on her head from the balcony! I can still hear her screaming!
Love, "Pop"
