Born to be Wild?

Written by Bakersfield Magazine

Just like most kids, some of my oldest memories involve two wheels. For instance, on my 11th birthday, I received my first “real” bicycle.

People Let Me Tell You ‘bout My Best Friend...

Written by Bakersfield Magazine

Growing up in the ‘60s and ‘70s, one of my most vivid memories is of the TV show The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, although I don't really remember any of the particular episodes per se—I mean, I was like six or seven—but it's that opening sequence and theme song that is always popping in my head and leaving me with a warm feeling inside.
