I lived on El Sueño until I was eight. My dad had worked at Stop 'n' Shop back when Miratti still owned it. My mom said Miratti was shady and my dad said he was shady but he was a good guy. My grandma lived on Old Mill Road, in the mobile home park next to Blue Skies.
I used to have to lie and say I lived on Old Mill Road. So that I could go to Monte Vista school and not Foothill, I was made to lie as a six-year-old. It sounds insane now. By third grade I was at Foothill anyway but still felt like a creep. Every year we had Thanksgiving and Christmas at my grandma's house on Old Mill Road. I saw a lot of this sign as a kid. I guess that's why I like it.
What does the Blue Skies sign mean to you? Is it in Santa Barbara?
