Let me tell you a bit about me:
Because of this, I am a nostalgia addict...stuck into the past.

I lived South of Sunset Blvd. @ 711 N. Bonnie Brae St. (now known as 709 N. Bonnie Brae)
I use to buy my car parts at Honest Abe's Auto Parts on Sunset.
My Honda bike was new, so was good there.

From 1962--1975, I attended LACC full and part time. June-1975-AA-Radio/TV Broadcasting Degree.
I found Echo Park Online because of (prizes may be involved):
My fond memories of living there.

Fond Memories of Bonnie Brae Street

Echo Park was my first residence in Los Angeles, after migrating from the mid-west at the young age of 18, and arriving on a Greyhound bus to have a new beginning in the city of the angel's. I lived in Echo Park for approximately eight years, and those were my fondest memories, especially the ducks, geese and swans at the lake and the "grasshopper" type oil wells just down the street on Bonnie Brae and near Belmont High School.

My landlady, Haytivik Viola Smith, adopted me as her surrogate nephew and was my spiritual aunt until her death in 1979. Besides my natural mother, she was my greatest inspiration, through her loving kindness to me and many other people in the community. She became an artist after retiring from the Federal Government downtown, and her specialty was painting on Japanese silk with India ink. Perhaps, someone may remember her when walking her black Labrador Retriever around the lake and neighborhood.
Our neighbors across the street were Bertha Hill and her niece Sylvia Smith at 710 N. Bonnie Brae, directly across the street from where I lived at 711 N. Bonnie Brae.
Bertha and Haytivik were not related
709 and 711 N. Bonnie Brae and the shared yard are on 1 lot and sit side by side of each other, because there is no back yard behind either of the houses, just a walkway. They were built in 1924.

For some unknown reason, 711 (2 story house) was changed to 709 address.
Since 1979 when Haytivik died, there have been several owners.
I would enjoying hearing from anyone who may have remembered us.

While we may never undo all of the actions and decisions in our lives...What we can do...Is to become someone that we never were.

I studied and became an Actor.
