ses-1.jpg Identifying the people in this picture is a lot easier than with the gang of Bobbie Soxers. Auntie is on the left and Moms is on the right with me. You can't see me because there's no fancy neonatal technology in 1961. Nobody knew if I would be a he or a she. I'm there though, about to become a real boy in less than a month.

I'm pretty sure that this is the LA Zoo. Things have come a long way since then I'd say. The folks had a very difficult time getting housing on base at Pendleton, but I'm told that my immanent arrival helped soften hearts that otherwise were closed to persons of color in those days. So I was ultimately born in Oceanside, CA; a good place to be from.

Not long thereafter, we headed up to Los Angeles and I grew up in the shadow of the Dons.
