My dad, Ben Oliver, owned Ben's Smokey Pit on Huntington Dr. in the 1950's - 1960's. The covered wagon had belonged to Lucky Baldwin ... I remember riding in it with my family in the Monrovia Parade in the late 1950's. He passed away at age 95 in San Luis Obispo in 1997. He would have loved knowing someone remembered Ben's Smokey Pit. Thank you!

I was a friend of Chuck's from Saint Lukes. I remember you. I went with your family camping to Lake Mead. I wondered what happen with your brother. I moved to the midwest and lost track of him and others from that school. I currently live in Monterey CA
