It's one of my earliest memories. Fifty-eight years ago today, I got to watch my very own dad ride a FIRE ENGINE in a PARADE! (That's him at far right.) I think that was probably one of the happiest days of his whole life.



Dad's Little League All-Star team had just won third place in the California State tournament, and the city of West Covina feted the players at the brand new Plaza Shopping Center.

I remember watching the parade from opposite the Thrifty Drug Store. That's my Nana holding me up so I could see. I was one month shy of turning three years old...
