There Is A Reason Venice Is Called "The End Of The World"!
When I was a child I remember it being mostly inhabited by bar rooms, fisherman, oil companies, and my mother's people, aunts, uncles and cousins. Most of them in the bar room business. Daddy, though, worked for the California Company, who later became Standard Oil and even later, Chevron.
Who Is Where?
The whole world is watching this little place, so long ago nicknamed,
And as the world watches I will be whispering a prayer, "Lord forgive us, help us and have mercy upon us all ."
