Also show some other neighborhoods you use to live in

Here's where I am now.

Here's where I lived in Tracy California. 1985-1987


If you see right of the street that's marked there's a factory, it's a cheese factory. A funny thing that happened was the night we moved in, my parents decided to leave the windows open in their bedroom. What they didn't know was that at night the factory released the gasses into the air, the smell of very strong cheese. Well my mom wakes up to the smell and in her words the air was so thick with the smell she was suffocating. She became convinced that my dad let loose a deadly fart so she kicked him with everything she had.

That was about 21 years ago and we still laugh about it.

When I lived there those houses between the area I marked and the factory were not there.

Of all the cities I've lived in Tracy has probably changed the most since I left in 1987. It's definitely grown the most. When I lived there it had about 25,000 people and the kids were bored to tears, now there's about 75,000. I don't know if it's anymore exciting, it's probably the same just 3 times bigger. Population is expected to be in excess of 100,000 in 2010.

Here where I lived in Pleasanton California,which despite it's name was not pleasant. 1987-1988


When I heard we were moving to Florida I was like cool (because Florida was the place to be like California, except it's not California and all those Miami Vice shows in the 80's made it seem like the closest thing to a tropical paradise next to Hawaii.) I'm packed let's go.
