  2. Growing up in the Panther Gap area between Bull Creek and Honeydew is pretty different now than when I was there in the 1940s. Some of the differences are pretty funny. Others? Not so much. That stand up comedy is thriving in Humboldt is very cool. I don’t do stand up–comedy, that is. I do stand up, which many people my age have trouble doing. I was born in Scotia, but now I live far away in Pennsylvania. I get out to California once in a while. Notably, I’ll be there in April to meet with the remnant of my high school graduation class. This will be the sixtieth reunion of the class of 1958. How time flies! I’ve just been thinking about the last time I lived in Humboldt. I moved from Nashville to the Mattole Valley in 1978–forty years ago. I tried doing stand up at HSU, as a lecturer in psychology, but that didn’t work out. After four years, I moved to Chicago to work in a zoo, and then on to Washington, D.C., which bears some resemblance to a zoo. During my time working at National Geographic I got to travel to some pretty interesting places. Traveling became a habit. Even so, I don’t get home to Humboldt often enough, and I miss it.
