    Strait Talk

    From AIR FORCE Magazine Strait Talk By Robert S. Dudney, Editor in Chief Before the 1973 Mideast War, Israel picked up many warning signs, but it didn’t act on them. According to The Yom Kippur War by the London Sunday Times do well to Israel was convinced that, because it had clear military superiority, the Arabs wouldn’t. The book said, “Thinking … on this point was so rigid, …it even had a name: ‘The Concept.’ “ That concept went down in flames on...

    SHOULD I DO THE RADIO SHOW?

    Today I was called by the owner of KVOI radio here in Tucson. They offered me the 3:00PM to 4:00 PM (Tucson time) on Saturdays. The show would be available, LIVE, on the internet. I’m thinking about it. If I had an 1 800 number would any of you be interested in calling in if I do the show?  

    1981 – 1983 Jerrold Division, General Instrument Nogales Mexico

      I had returned to Tucson wanting to get out of the car business, but I got a job the next day as a new car sales manager at Sundown Datsun. While I was in San Diego the old Bill Ellis Datsun dealership had been sold. They had been looking me for a while and it was easy for me to start making good money immediately, but after a few months I still wanted out. I finally received a response to one of the resume’s I had sent out.  I got an interview with the Jerrold Electronics Division of General...

    1942 – 1949 The Early Formative Years Part 2

      In 1942, I believe after the air raid in February, my mom and Aunt Beatrice took me to Mexico for my first visit to meet all the family there. My uncle, Tio Chito, (Chee-toe) owned a small grocery store in Cuauhtémoc and was considered a rich man at the time. He had a couple of cooks, maids and people who worked in the store. We travelled by train roundtrip and were gone for about four or five months. How could a poor family afford that?   Chihuahua Mexico, 1942 I remember parts of the trip: In...

    !979 – 1981 Bill Ellis Datsun to General Instrument

    I arrived in Tucson Friday afternoon and was immediately paged, “Will   Chuck Diaz please report the XYZ Airline counter?”  With that I went to the counter and they had keys to a car that were dropped off for me. I went to the parking lot and got in to my brand-new Datsun 280ZX. I got in the car and headed for Tucson not knowing where I was. As I got closer to downtown Tucson I stopped at the first hotel I came to. I spent one of the loneliest nights of my life that Friday night. Not knowing...

    1975 – 1979 From Entertainment to the Car Business

     Editors Comment: Releasing each chapter the way I’m doing puts a lot of pressure on both me and the reader. If you read an entire book you would judge the book. Reading my book, one chapter at a time, makes you judge the book chapter by chapter. My point is, they all won’t be good, but I still hope you learn something. Comments are always important, even if you just let me know you read it.  ________________ When I left The Raintree, I had been out from under the corporate umbrella...

    1973/4 Gallaretto’s and Thirty Tons of Bricke

    Editor’s note: I again mention women at the time, not to brag, but because it happened and I hope I’m reminding people that men and women really do attract each other. We seem to have a problem understanding that today. ______________________________________ Around 1973 0r 74 my partners and I had an opportunity to buy a beautiful restaurant in Torrance CA. It was built and opened as “Gallarretto’s,” a high end, very classy, high roller restaurant for the heavy hitters in Palos...

    1970 – 1975 The Raintree Years

    Editor’s Note: I get a bit descriptive with a subject in this chapter so if you don’t want to read anything that I would classify as semi-adult language, don’t read on. Just to be clear, there were never any Hippies at The Raintree.  _________________________________________       Soon after my success with Production Data Systems, in mid-1969, I started going out almost every night. I had broken up with a girl I had been with for over two years and I was ready to hit the...

    1965 – 1966 Ford Aeronutronics

      When I sold the Doll house I had a rough time getting a job. I had gone on a short vacation blowing the money I had made on the Doll House sale and I hadn’t realized how hard it would be to get a job. At every interview I was told I was over qualified because of the job I had had at AiResearch as a Production Control Supervisor. Things got so bad I was living in a pay by the night cheap hotel. It was an all-male hotel and there actually was a sign outside my window that blinked “CHEAP”...
