    You know your from BHILLS when u remember Morley’s drugstore. The Daisy and Jack Hansen holding “court” @ lunchtime on the patio. MFK Coffee Shop was open 24 hours. Not getting pulled over by BH finest at 4 am stoned or not… When Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty could walk up Rodeo drive with no paparazzo! When a tan was from your pool and not a machine. When a house was a HOME and not a teardown. B4 traffic!

  5. when you had a standing invite to Jack and Sally’s 610 N. Beverly Drive, for a weekend of tennis, great food, and movies downstairs.
