18. That sounds like my Dad

He'd take my brother and I over to "The City" for the day and give each of us $1.00 to spend. We'd spend the day strolling the streets of Chinatown going to all of the little shops and stores and looking at all of the interesting things they had.

Dad would magically appear later (probably was at some pub somewhere knowing him ) and we roamed all over Chinatown and North Beach as young kids, I'm talking like 7 and 8 years old.

There were no murders going on and people were not afraid of being shot in broad daylight in those days. You'd get on the cable car and the conductor would say, "Ladies watch your handbags please!".

Dad would then take us home w/fresh sponge cakes in hand knowing that my Mother would be waiting for us as she loved those sponge cakes from Chinatown and Dad knew it. As for that pub he'd been at earlier in the day as we roamed around town as what I'd consider to be fairly young children, well, what pub?

Those were the days alright and no, we'll never see the likes of that very special time in our lives again.
