Redwoods and Me
What do you like the most about small towns? Ben Lomond raised me. I got my first haircut at Les’ Barber Shop, which was located in the lower left unit. I can still smell the blue hair tonic where he kept the combs. I got my first job at 13 at the Ben Lomond Market before it was a Supermarket. Had to get a work permit to do that. I was on Mill Street in 89 when the earthquake struck. Ben Lomond reminds me of a kind of person who believes in hard work and simple pleasures, in honesty and sincerity. It reminds me of my dad.
