I rode to my parents' house for Sunday dinner and stopped at Rio Hondo Golf Club for a pic:


If you don't golf in the Los Angeles area, Rio wouldn't have any meaning to you. It's just another golf course. But Rio has meaning to me. This is where I worked in high school as a range boy to bankroll my Eddy Merckx:


I used to earn $3.50 an hour, so you can imagine how long it took to save up the $1750 for my Merckx. That was a shitload of money 25 years ago. An HK91 cost $400 at that time.
