My Palo Alto Memories
Original post made by jan monasmith, Midtown, on Mar 9, 2008
The Winter Club ice skating rink that I used to get a membership for every Christmas AND new ice skates if I had outgrown my old ones.
Attending Hoover Elementary through 1963 and my most memorable teacher Mr. Pike 5th grade!
Playing in the fields at the end of Colorado Ave at Frontage Road when there WERE fields.
The big birthday fire engine that would come around for parties.
Waiting for my dad at the corner of Higgins Ct and riding on his police motorcycle back to the house.
All the same stuff like Andy remembers like the A & W, Bergman's, the Variety Store.
Going downtown to the Stanford Theatre for monster movies and getting in and treats all for .25 !!
