The building was still there the last time I was in Oakhurst.
I don’t know its address, but it is in front of a well-known restaurant ‘Erna’s Elderberry House.’ If you find Erna’s, you’ve found that building.
It was built for us, just before we hit hard times, in around 1976. We decided to do video game cartridges, at a time when the video game industry collapsed. The lease on the building almost took the company under. I remember offering our landlord 10% of the company if he would let us out of the past due rent.
Had he taken us up on it, he would have made a TON of money. Instead, Roberta and I mortgaged our home, and somehow the company not only survived, but took off. It was all good after that.
