    Greg, Tom Babajian's wife had a successful surgery. They were able to get most of the tumor, but not all of it. She will need to have another round of chemo, and then possibly more surgery to get the remaining part of the tumor. I don't know if they are actually curing her or just buying time. The good news is Tom seems relieved and cautiously optimistic.

    Ronnie, welcome back. The best way to post is to simply scroll down to the bottom of the New Forum page and type your comments in the box below the previous poster. Then hit "Add your comments". If you hit "Start a new Discussion", we can read your post, but it will be on a new page, and everyone will have to hop back and forth between discussions. It just seems easier to have everything on one page. I will leave your new page up for a few days to let everyone have a chance to read it. Also, break down and buy a computer so you won't have to go to the library to talk to us.

    Thanks Willie. Let's all keep praying that they stop the cancer in its tracks. Do you know the specific location and type of cancer. After being a "suit" in medicine 20+ years you learn that somewhere there is an expert or team of experts working on or specializing in a specific type of cancer. I have arranged consults, computer consults or 2nd opinion exams for other friends and family with cancers. At least I can ask some of the MD's.

    Tom's wife has ovarian cancer, and the tumor is located in her lower abdominal area. She is being treated at the City of Hope which is rated as one of the best in the U.S. They are happy with the care she has received.
    Yes Ron, bring your wife and we can kayak the river first and then the ocean.
    thanks again for your hospitality Al. We had fun. Your neighbors sure are loud though. ha ha.

    Ronnie, No, I didn't see her daughter, but I looked up the Oct 2007 issue and it was some girl named Covergirl
    Shaunda, she is blonde.
    Bill, I believe I am right about the date, Connie (maybe different connie) "Springler", was her name in Junior and Senior high but she might be a different Connie. I will have to check on classmates. Sent me email about her daughter on Easy Rider and she also played in a Horror movie and had her face covered in bees, also I believe she had her prints put in on walk of fame in Hollywood. I will try to remember her name and movie need. The movie was the one where the kids said a poem to call up Candyman I believe, I sent an email to Pat Chambers with a Easy Rider page and it had her on a cycle. The name will come to me and when it dose I will write it down so I don't forget and send it to you. Ronnie or Ron
    Lunch at Seal Beach waiting for Jim Greenwald. Had great time with Howard, Joe and Conni.

    Bill, Her name is Rena Riffel and she is the cover girl for October 2007 "Easy Rider" Biker Tattoo Special edition. I look it up las t year and she was on the cover, as I said she also playes parts in Horror movies. She hangs out with Susan Mywold and they both went to eWestchester Elementary Airport Junior high and Westchester high with me. I missed out graduation with them and the Centerions our class name to go to Marine corps boot cap and training. Hey steve is that Howard sitting at your table? Tell him I needed a zoom lens to see the picture he showed me and I was not lying I remember June Hadsell looking like "Penny Marshall" of Leverne and Shirley, O well I guess I need a refresher course on ol Friends.

    Attn: Al or anyone who lives near Westchester. Please knock on Jim Huckstep's door and inform him that the Dodgers are in the playoffs. I'm sure he will be delighted. He may even throw a party. He can invite several of the Giant and Cardinal players as they will have nothing to do in October. If Tony La Russa shows up, do not accept a ride home with him. He is a notorious drunk driver.
    Attn: anyone heard from Pat Chambers lately? I usually recieve a couple of jokes and such from him a couple times a week. I know he changed his email address but I still have then same one. Bill the address for the Easy Rider daughter is she also sells signed copies of the magazine in question. There having an oldie's concert at the Rodeo grounds this weekend. Sept. 30th. The Strawbary alarm clock, Seeds, Bad finger and a few others. It is from 12 noon till 10 pm. The magazine "reader" put out this information along with my little bro, Ricky. The marquee at the Rodeo grounds is blank, so I don't really know whats up! I will be able to hear it from my back yard and if you get out this way drop in for a swim. Ronnie Trompeter

    I talked to Pat last week. He had planned to move to New Mexico, but when he got there, legal problems caused the deal to go south. He is now in California, and assured me that he will be back in touch with us soon.
    It sure is a pain when the person who insists on holding the only set of keys to the locks on your gates loses said set of keys. It's worse the day before trash pickup when the trash cans are not on the street side of the locked gate. Guess I'll have to go buy a universal padlock key to open the gates with.

    You may have to keep a couple of goats in your yard to eat your trash.
    I stopped at the vegtable stand in Somis the other day and they have a goat display. The goats climb up on the roof of their shed using a set of ramps. Maybe I could get them to come over on their days off?
    Pat, try running over your discards with a lawn mower, (borrow your neighbors) when the catcher fills up dump it in a recycling bin. Label it "Goat food". "works every time and you can take it off your taxes". Welcome back to the Golden state!
    They were having a concert at the "Rodeo grounds this weekend but cancelled due to no permits or something. Groups I heard of from long ago. Strawberry alarm clock?, Bad finger, The Seeds and enough of the old groups to run from 12 pm till 10 at night. Anyone ever caught a Lobster using a hoop net, have tried about every season but no luck so far.

    I've been wading through this gigantic collection of stuff that I've landed here with. It's amazing what makes it through your travels in life and what doesn't although you intended that it would. I found some genuwine computer artwork that my daughter made when she was about 14 from a motherboard. She broke the thing up and used various parts to make a picture of a robot. I found my mother's report card from her senior year in high school (she did a lot better than me) in '41 and two awards she got in elementary school, one dated in '34 and the other dated in '36. Of course I have my great grandmother's hand written marriage certificate circa 1894 but that's the sort of thing you try to preserve. Believe it or not I found the deed to my grave in Inglewood Cemetary. A little creepy but handy to have as my grave site has this lakeside view (can't figure how you see it from 6 feet down but what the hell). I've also filled several trash cans with stuff I paid good money to ship here but didn't have time to sort out before I left Florida. I guess that is a part of life. If anyone needs anything I have a two car garage full of extra stuff and a lot of it is good things to have like a diving light that works from a D cell battery I've had for about 40 years (neutral buoyancy). Just bring your semi up here and you can have all you want for free...

    Pat, I had a similar experience last year when I moved to Idaho. I did a lot of clearing out before I moved. I try to do a lot of reading, so I had accumulated a vast number of books over the years. I put them in boxes and took them to the library. They were happy to have them. I also took some old clothes to the Goodwill. The thing that makes me laugh is the people who have garage sales. They think they can make money, but soon discover that nobody wants to pay for their old junk. Maybe we need to move once in a while just to clean up.

    Don't be in a hurry to occupy your lake view site in Inglewood.

    Willie - I went up to Atascadero this weekend to help a lady friend take a convertable sofa up to her daughter's house. That way my friend would have something better than the floor to sleep on when she goes to see her daughter and grandkids. I drove around a bit in the back country. It's a nice area although I think I'd rather be a little further south around San Luis Obispo and maybe towards the ocean a bit. I'd have to explore it more to decide. Wouldn't you know that there was a motorcycle rally staying in the motel we stayed in. Fortuneately I like motorcycles but as I become an Old Fart I kinda like to goto bed earlier than the partying crowd. Speaking of partying crowds where'd everybody go on this list? Since my new (to me) Pick'em Up truck only gets 10 MPG I arranged for the gas prices to be lowered a bit this weekend. I kinda like that 460 inch motor even if you can actually watch the gas gauges move towards empty while you're driving. Well It's cocktail hour so I'll add more about how to use a GPS at night in the back country later, that way I won't spill any Capt. Morgan on me keyboard!
    Everyone - Watch out for drink thives! My 84 year old Mother just made off with not only Mary's drink but much more important she stole my drink too! You'd think there was a shortage of alchohol the way Mom snatches it...
    Pat, I also have a Senior bandit. Believe it or not, my 83 year Mother-in-law, whom lives with me will grab candy out of my grand daughters hands (and eat it as fast as she can) if she passses by close enough. "Thought it was an Urban ledgin". (please excuse spelling)

    Sorry for being off the board for a week. I just got back from an Elk hunt. Cold, snowing, wind howling. Never saw an Elk. We did see a ton of their shit and tracks. In spite of the weather, it was a good experience.

    Things have been slow here lately. Maybe the boys are all tired. I'll always be here. Have you seen or talked to any of our guys since you've been in California?
    There was a man who lost one of his arms in an accident. He became very depressed because he had loved to play golf and do lots of things that took two arms.

    One day in his despair, he decided to commit suicide. He got on an elevator and went to the top of a building to jump off. He was standing on the ledge looking down and saw this man skipping along, whistling and kicking up his heels. He looked closer and saw that this man didn't have any arms at all.

    He started thinking, what am I doing up here feeling sorry for myself, I still have one good arm to do things with. There goes a man with no arms skipping down the sidewalk so happy, and going on with his life.

    He hurried down and caught up with the man with no arms. He told him how glad he was to see him because he himself had lost one of his arms and felt ugly and useless and was going to kill himself. He thanked him again & again for saving his life and he knew he could make it with one arm if that guy could go on with no arms.

    The man with no arms began dancing and whistling and kicking up his heels again.

    The one armed man asked, 'Why are you so happy anyway?'

    The man with no arms said, 'I'm NOT happy ... my balls itch !

    I think your mother is pretty smart. She deliberately let you catch her stealing your liquor, so now you can't take your eye off her. This is her way of being sure you won't neglect her.

    Today I get to pick up my new Smith & Wesson Model 27. This one is to replace the one that disappeard when my house got robbed 25 years ago. Then before I could afford another one they stopped making them. They started distributing them again last April.

    I need to find a tent garage for my pickup truck. The tree that shades the driveway dumps all kinds of dirt on the truck, especially when it rains, so I want to park the truck in a tent. Anybody know who makes a good quality tent? If I ever get moved in I could get the car in the garage and then I could measure to see if the truck would fit too. Of course I have to figure out what to do with all the stuff in the garage first.

    Do you have a car and a truck? Why do you need both? Get rid of one, and use the garage. Those tents will flop around in the Santa Ana winds.
