What were your favorite places in Culver City: As many CC residents, I ate many meals at Tito's and Johnnies.  I spent a lot of time playing baseball and softball at Vets park.  As a youngster I spent time looking for tadpoles down at the creek.  Most of all, I enjoyed playing around in my neighborhood with my friends.

Interests: In high school I loved baseball but now I enjoy tennis, golf and skiing (with two hip replacements I only hit the easy runs).  I love my family but they are all in So. Calif. so when they visit , it's a treat.  I belong to the Elk's Lodge and play and captian the tennis team.  Enjoy a good movie, music (OBG's) and travel when possible.  I attend Giant's baseball games and am still an avid sports fan.

Additional Comments: Email has given me the opportunity to reunite with some of my HS friends.  I enjoy catching up.  I wish all of you reading this short bio all the best.  It's hard to believe it's going to be 50 yrs. in 2010.  Glad we made it!
