We moved to Fresno in 1956. Eventually settling near First/Clinton.

1. I remember going to Harpains Dairy for the best chocolate milk on earth.
2. Shopping at Continental Market on Blackstone between Ashlan and Gettysburg? with my parents for our groceries.
3. The old airport terminal at Hammer Field when TWA Lockheed Super Constellations used to visit regularly.
4. Purposely missing the bus to walk home from Fort Miller Jr. High so we could spend hours at Arthurs Toy Store looking at model cars and planes to get.
5. Going to Selland Arena and seeing some of the greatest names in Rock and Roll history in their prime
6. That would also include the Warnors, Tower, Wilson theaters, the Wild Blue Yonder and the FSU Amphitheater
7. Watching the movie Grand Prix in Cinerama at the Warnors Theater before Christmas 1966.
8. Turning north on Willow Ave. off Shaw and not having to stop till you reached Friant Dam
9. The Go-Kart track west of hwy.99 on Herndon by the river
10. Those deserted roads(maybe an old gokart track)across from the north west part of FYI off Dakota. That we had make shift races on without any hassles from the law.
10a. That would also include the 1.25 mile road coarse in Woodward Park before it was ever opened as a park
