Beemer Memories Pt. 6 ~ corn dogs 'n nieces

I received a comment about Beemer Memory Pt. 1 (see link below), it is too good a memory to remain just a comment.

My Dearest Uncle Max, 
I came to Grandma's in San Francisco in February of 1972 [it was actually 1973, I bought my Beemer in September of 1972 - Styrous] at the age of 19 with my 1 year old baby Michael. You came and picked me up to take me for a day's long journey on your new baby BMW. We went through Golden Gate as well as the Cliff House and along the Beach.

You also introduced me to the infamous Corn Dog and after telling you I never had one you said. "What? You haven't lived until you've had a Corn Dog!" and insisted it had to be eaten with Mustard ;}

We then went along the Beach and through many, many hills before going home at the end of our day.

It was a wonderful Memory on your bike that day and I thought {and still do} you were absolutely the best Uncle ever! I've been on many Motorcycles {as we've always owned one as well} but the day on your bike is the best memory I have on any bike...I wish we took a picture {though I want to say I think we did :} THANK YOU!

I Love You, Conni

Thank you, Conni. I remember that day as if it was yesterday. I still remember wiping mustard off your cheek with one of the paper napkins that came with the corn dog. You were nineteen, lovely and full of life. In my eyes you will always be nineteen, lovely and full of life.

Thank you for being part of that beautiful memory and especially for bringing it back to life for me; it as well as you make me young again.

Your loving uncle.

P. S. If you're in the Chicago area, check out Conni's custom made cakes; there are very unusual cake designs especially for expectant mothers; I wrote an article about it (see link below). Her website is Conni's Custom Cakes.

  1. Yes it was 1973! Michael was born on Christmas Day 1971 which would've made him only 2 months old...Thank You

    Love, Conni
