I just wanted to let the greater Chowhound Community know that Chino Wayne, a longtime LA board poster and all around good person is in the hospital and very sick. I met Wayne several years ago at a Chowhound restaurant event and he and I became friends away from the site, bonding over our similar ages and experiences growing up in the San Fernando Valley in the 50's and 60's.
Wayne is a highly talented photographer and has a very wicked sense of humor. He is one of those people who is both talented and a really good guy. His wife has asked me to say that both she and Wayne would welcome all the good wishes, vibes, prayers and positive energy that anyone would like to send Wayne's way.
