Anyone living in South Pas knows the Cappy's World of Spirits sign on Mission, Here is a link to a former post: http://southpasadena.blogspot.com/search/label/Cappy%27s%20World%20of%20Spirits II just received a wonderful message from former Cappy's employee Clement Joshua, and I wanted to share it here: "I worked at Cappys in the late 1980's. I needed a job, I was between jobs at the time, and Cappy hired me with a handshake. Little did I know what I was in for. The basement was stocked high with liquor cases, some from the 1950's and maybe earlier. Keepsakes, trinkets, last minute gifts. The people that worked there, Cappy, his wife Elsie, Wally, Tom, Dennis Cappy himself had such an influence on me and my life. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't find myself using language, gestures that he passed on to me, whether that was his intent or not. A most personable and kind man and giving man. It was supposed to be a job to hold me over until something else came along. Even after getting hired with a new job, I stayed to work at Cappys after getting off of my " real" job. I stayed almost 4 years. I will miss that man and have so much to thank him for." Thanks for sharing, Clement! Anyone else have a Cappy's story they want to share?
