This makes my 3rd visit with this wonderful club in Temecula. The last 2 times I visited, it was in person. If I lived closer, I’d definitely become a member and also of their sister club in Mission Viejo.
This time… it’s on Zoom. Hope the tech gods are kind.
Recently, I lost a dear friend and mentor, Fred Bauman.
He passed away 2 weeks shy of his 95th birthday. We associate the word ‘mentor’ with someone who influence and shape lives but Fred was more than that.
I shared this on Facebook, at first on the former Press-Enterprise employees’ group and then afterwards on my personal page.
Fred was a one-of-a-kind boss. After he retired, in his 80’s he did some standup comedy. I drove him to and from the evenings he had gigs. While many (younger) comics had cheatsheets on index cards, Fred never needed them.
