Kind Perc - Now Open Warehouse Available 760 885 -8364 My Thoughts by Michele Harvey Where Did Everybody Go At sixty years of age, I seem to have come to a point in my existence where people have dropped noticeably out of my life. I sat here thinking of the day that my son Robert and I enjoyed eating lunch with Doc Howard and his wife Marie. We were at a little restaurant in Escondido in the summer of 1999. In September of 2002 my children's father and grandfather died. In early November of that year Doc died and this past winter Marie died. Since then, my children have lost four uncles an aunt and a grandmother. Two of my cousins have died in the past few years and an aunt and an uncle. I moved to Julian in February of 1984. The next month, I began a quilting class at The Julian Yarn Basket with Bette Runnels, Alice Stone, Sharon Guinn, Phyllis Danley, now gone, Sheila Vedova, now gone and Mrs. Kendall Sr., now gone. About a year after I moved to Julian with my family, I got a job waitressing at The Golden Apple Restaurant, where Candied Apple Pastry shop is now. I had a customer, an elderly lady, who didn't know how to drive a car. She didn't come in for a few months, and then she walked into the restaurant one day, beaming. She told me that her husband died, which was sad. Then she told me that she lived in Shelter Valley and decided she needed to learn to drive a car so she could get herself around without depending on others as she had her husband. Learning to drive for the first time while she was in her mid sixties must have been a huge challenge. She was so happy and I was so pleased for her. Sadly, she is gone now. Dina Watson who I worked with is also gone. After working at The Golden Apple, I got a job at Kendall'sKorner, now Buffalo Bill's. One couple who were regular customers of mine was Paul and Ruth Hays. One day as Paul signed his bill I noticed that on the head of his pen was a marksmanship pin awarded to him when he was an officer with the San Diego Police Department. I told him that I had one just like it at home. He asked what my maiden name had been; it was Michele Harvey, and he then told me that he and my father stood side by side when they were given those pins. Paul was able to tell me just a few stories about my father, who I never knew because I was only two years old when he died. Sadly, Paul and I lost contact and soon after that he was gone. When I was a child growing up in San Diego County, we had so many family members. We had an average of thirty people at Christmas dinner at my Aunt Mickie and Uncle Carlton's home. I think I was about eight years old when they added a large kitchen and very large dining room to their home so we could all fit in comfortably. The dining room table was set up in a "T" formation with the family elders at the head of the "T" and the rest of us sitting in a particular order with small children and their parents at the far end, away from the elders. Since then, two generations of my family are completely gone and my generation is thinning out. I wish my children could feel the warmth and comfort of having so many family members close to them, but their generation is spread throughout six states and two countries, so they barely know each other. In my life, many people have made very positive impressions on me. Most everyone that I've known has touched me with a lasting memory of at least one good time. Some have been family members and some have been friends who felt like family members. Saturday morning, September 3rd, Danette Heinlein posted a wonderful paragraph on Facebook. She wrote; "Family isn't always ~:~,~!ood~ It's the peptic in, you~r !jfe who want youjn theirs. The ones who ..... ~.;.. ~. accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile, and who love you no matter what." Many times family is very special too.
