Twilight of the Nisei : Retailing: The closing of Tad and Marie
Uyemura's store is seen by some to
typify the waning cultural influence of second-generation Japanese.

It is twilight for the Nisei Oriental Gift Shop, where 40 years ago a
young couple named Tad and Marie Uyemura
plunked down their savings and claimed their piece of the American dream.
In a few weeks the Uyemuras will close the door. The ornamental chimes
clanging and dangling from the ceiling
will rest silent. The shelves that once held rows of hand-painted
dolls--some dressed in flowery, regal robes for the girls, others
adorned with helmets and swords for the boys--will go bare.
Then the shop, the oldest and one of only a few left in the area
specializing in traditional and authentic Japanese wares,
will be no more.
Gardena will lose a landmark.
The Uyemuras understand this, but 40 years is enough for them. It is
time to retire.
"You can't live forever," said Tad Uyemura, 67."You have got to be able
to enjoy your life."
From their perch behind the counter of the modest gift shop, the
Uyemuras have watched Gardena's strawberry patches give way to
mini-malls and office buildings. They have also watched as other
Japanese shops closed over the years, leaving just the Uyemuras' and a
smaller one in Torrance.

"Smokey"- Jock Ewings Horse
Season 2, Episode 4 "Bypass" 1978
Tonja told us about Smokey:
Smokey was actually given to us about ten years ago by the parents of
one of my sister-in-laws. They owned a ranch in Royse City, Texas and
were selling the ranch and all the livestock because they were retiring
and no longer able to maintain it. They gave us 3 of their horses,
Smokey, a really old pony named Peanut, and a huge Missouri Fox Trotter
named Candy. We were also told that Candy was used as Bobby Ewing's
horse on the show. Unfortunately, she had a stroke and died about a year
after we got her. Smokey is still alive and kicking all these years
later, although her health has begun to fail in recent months. Now that
I know that picture is from 1978, that would make her at least 38.
Here's a couple of pictures of her. One is from me riding her last fall.
