Well, if the ankle business didn’t slow me down some.
But now it’s better and my legs are back to the old ache that I almost conquered through the year of travel.
So, in order to get back in shape, I told myself to get out there and walk. So I marched down Branciforte to Soquel and walked all the way to Ocean; up ocean and then up back up Broadway to Branciforte again.
I observed a few landmarks from way back when by walking slow instead of taking a car down the street toward the main part of the city,
On Soquel I passed a building that once housed an office of a man who had credentials in both medicine and law. He was an attorney who handled the case of a little girl who wanted to play in Little League. That was back in 1973 or 74 when I had a talk show called 27:40 (twenty seven minutes and 40 seconds).
I interviewed the gentleman, but because I wouldn’t have an opportunity to get the other side of the argument, he wasn’t allowed to say anything about the case.
But it did give him a forum to talk about how he became both a doctor and a lawyer. His name is probably in storage in my archives, otherwise, I’d name him.
He was already in his 60s during that time.
There were other buildings I remember, and one was a washer repair business. Inside the window was an old wringer washer. Anyone besides me remember those?
I walked through the pain only stopping twice to read posted notices on telephone poles.
