Out & About San Diego—Rumbi and Rangui the Glarfs

Out & About

Earlier this year I delivered packages for Amazon and people for Uber. Those two jobs were the worst I ever had, and those two companies are the worst I have ever been affiliated with. I’ll just leave it there….

One of my goals for driving, though, was to explore the nooks and crannies of San Diego County that I ordinarily wouldn’t explore.

On one of my deliveries I found two Glarfs (Glarves? Scarf, scarves; Glarf, Glarves?????). Their names are Rumbi and Rangui, and they’re kind of cute:

Rangui the Glarf is the one in yellow, and Rumbi the Glarf is in blue. Rangui and Rumbi were born in 1959. Daddy was Jerry Lee Gauss of Bonita, California, which is where these two Glarfs still live. Daddy was only 15 years old when he had these two little ones. Sadly, Jerry died at the age of 19 in a traffic accident. “Glarf” was Jerry’s word for dwarf dinosaur.

Rangui and Rumbi guarded the Gauss home on Valley Road in Bonita in the 1960s. Rangui and Rumbi ran away from home in 1970. No one knew where they were. They were located in 1993, and they were given a permanent home in 1999 on Bonita Road, south side at about 4140.
