Question and interviews by Tony Burchyns. Photographs by Naomi Brookner. Asked on California Avenue in Palo Alto.
Adobe Wells, Sunnyvale
"When I was 9 or 10, it snowed; we were in Vegas. My old man would take his pick-up and a tow rope and tow everyone around on sleds. I was the last person on the line - the hanger - and I had the fastest sled. Boy, when he'd get into those big open spaces, you'd have to hold on."
Owner of the Bike Connection
Wellesley Street, Palo Alto
"I would say any time the family gets together. It always ends in a fight. We love politics. You get 20 people together, and someone always goes home early."
"It was one where I cooked with a friend. We tried all these new dishes, and we were joking and having fun. We both enjoy a fun presentation."
San Antonio Road, Palo Alto
"It was some years back; the last Thanksgiving I had with my grandmother. It was in Reno with my mother and my brother. She (my grandmother) was telling us about our family tree - she told us that one of our ancestors was a pirate."
Ash Street, Palo Alto
"I went to the Thanksgiving parade in Houston when I was a kid, and I got interviewed by the Houston Chronicle. I was walking by, and they pulled me out of the crowd."
Van Auken Circle, Palo Alto
"The one time I roasted a turkey, three years ago. I dropped it - but before I cooked it - so no one knew."
