Glenn, in comments to the post below, asks "Forgot to ask. Ferndale, Washington?" Nope... that would be Ferndale, Michigan. Specifically 351 West Oakridge Ave, Ferndale, MI 48220. Home for about eight years, that was... in Former Happy Days. And I can show it to you, Gentle Reader, through Google-Majik. (Legends for the pics - click for larger, as always - immediately below)
First... Ferndale is a near-burb of Deetroit... about in the center of this map, just below the "696" shield near Warren.
This is what the neighborhood looks like... the 696 freeway is to the north and Woodward Ave, the main north-south surface arterial (and site of the world-famous Woodward Dream Cruise) is to the east... right on the "MI 48220..." legend.
Above is a much closer, zoomed-in view of the neighborhood. Livernois Avenue is to the west in the picture and dead-ends on my street... Oakridge Avenue.
And believe it or don't... Google Earth actually has street views of the ol' neighborhood, fuzzy as they may be. Above is looking east down Oakridge Ave, from the corner of Livernois. My house would be the fourth one on the right, if you could see that far.
Lastly... and this is what amazed me the MOST... my old house. Not the one with the wheelchair-accessible ramp but the one next door, with the brick/gray siding construction. Talk about late night trips down Memory Lane...
Aren't ya sorry ya asked, Glenn?
