If you know the answer right away, chances are you're related to me.

Are those glasses as "1960s" as they look...?

BTW: Bob could use some meat on those bones, and I'm not talking about the Colonel's special recipe...

Is that a calculator watch? Love the VW Beetle. Streets here in DF are full of them as taxis. Makes traffic a bit more charming, but you take your life into your own hands when you get into one(express kidnappings and all).

It is indeed a parking lot of a KFC in North Hollywood. The address of the place where I was standing was 12042 Roscoe Blvd. But that place isn't there anymore.

I am not wearing a calculator watch. I am wearing a regular old watch with hands.

Those are my regular glasses.

The photo was taken by someone else.

If you can figure out WHY I was at that spot, then you really know your history of North Hollywood and Sun Valley.

(a) LA's other only Civil War site.
(b) The former site of LA's Wrigley Field.
(c) You truly don't know. Can someone help Bob get home?

(d) Gilmore Field?

Interestingly, I drove past the site of Gilmore Field yesterday.

However, this spot isn't it.

Never woulda guessed.

Now then: who was that someone else? The more you skirt the question, the more I think the photo was taken by a, well, skirt...

The photo was taken by a passerby who remembered why I was there.

Someplace where irons weren't readily available?

Your dad's old market?
2008-08-03 11:42:07
18.   Bob Timmermann
Marty has the answer!

I wonder why a guy from Hawaii would complain about a shirt not being pressed. It's supposed to look wrinkled.

2008-08-03 11:46:48
19.   Linkmeister
But ours are Aloha shirts, not plain dress shirts, untucked!
2008-08-03 12:01:36
20.   Bob Timmermann
That's not a dress shirt. That shirt is designed to be worn to the beach or when you're out in the sun. It's UV resistant.

About the shirt, what are those things called, shirt garters?

21 hey, i wear black jeans occasionally...

What's truly amazing is how small that store was. Last time I was there, you can still see the hole in the ground where the safe was.

We all ate plenty of chicken over the years.

When did your Dad's store close and what was the name? I lived in NH from 1988-1992 not more then a mile from that address.
2008-08-03 13:05:40
26.   Bob Timmermann
The jeans are blue.

The stores name was Roscoe Dairy.

2008-08-03 14:25:55

Put a lot of thought into the name huh?

19 "Plain dress shirts" don't have two pockets. They're also longer, precisely so you can tuck them in.

It's original name was "Mary Sunshine Dairy."

Many are grateful that the holder of that franchise went out of business in short order.

It's worth noting that the name Roscoe Dairy didn't appear anywhere other than the phonebook and on the rubber stamp we put on the back of checks. There was no sign at the store that said Roscoe Dairy. The big sign on the street said "Fresh Milk." And I believe the original official name was Mary Sunshine Drive-Thru Dairy. Back then it had a distinctive big yellow pointed roof. Then a truck hit the building and we took the pointy roof off and just had a flat roof.

Not that anyone cares.
