Dunno. Finding out sometimes isn't that much fun.

But here's what I found this morning from the Moussolooney Balcony.
The parapet on this balcony is only mid-thigh.  Careful, Mouse.

That's the snug, the blind, the hide, the most invisible spot from where to shoot pigeons, orbs, wasps, and flying objects, skating skaters, and who knows, maybe a president someday.

There may be people that can translate better than I can, but I am not acquainted with them.

Mark Twain said that.

I'll let you be in Mouse's thread(s), if you'll promise to dry clean them before bringing them all back home.

Happy Super Bore Sunday. I hope that I'll be watching it with Irene, and if not, then in the Mountain Room Bar. WTF.

I have no TV. It's why I'm here so much.

To get back on topic, which if I am not mistaken is carz and carz clubs. When I was growing up in CV (no comments like, when are you gonna finish?) there was the smallest carz club around (3 members - 55, 56, 57). The name?




The Nomads, obviously. As to the other, I am 1/2 Finnish.

For the contest, name the three owners. Extra credit if you can match the names of with the carz.

Si, mon.

I was nearly "finished."

I only had to post these pages.

Jones and I arrived at Altamont on Friday, delivered from the clutches of a '56 Chevy, yellow, whose driver knew the backroads, namely Altamont Pass Rd. and N. Midway Rd. He delivered us to a scene lit by flames, fueled by Red Mountain leading the way, followed by copious other anti-inhibitional substances.

But Steve tells the story well, much better than the one who was there, because Steve bothered to work at gathering together so many different viewpoints. It's all connected. You'll see. Enjoy.

Then we can worry about Al Davis and his old Raiders, the Madden teams, MY OLD TEAM.

I knew Walt Frago. He went to school with my brother Mike.

The Newhall Massacre.

The Newhall massacre or the Newhall Incident was a shootout between two heavily armed criminals and officers of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) in the Newhall unincorporated area of Los Angeles County, California on April 6, 1970. In less than 5 minutes, four CHP officers were killed in what was at the time the deadliest day in the history of California law enforcement.[1]
At approximately 11:55 p.m. (UTC-8), CHP officers Walt Frago and Roger Gore conducted a traffic stop of Bobby Davis and Jack Twinning in conjunction with an incident involving the pair that had been reported to the CHP minutes earlier. After stopping in a restaurant parking lot and initially cooperating with the officers, Twinning and Davis opened fire and killed both officers. Minutes later, Officers George Alleyn and James Pence arrived on the scene and engaged Twinning and Davis in a shootout. A passerby picked up one of the officers' weapons and opened fire on the perpetrators; however, the three were outgunned and both Alleyn and Pence suffered fatal injuries while the passerby ran out of ammunition and took cover in a ditch. A third CHP patrol car arrived on the scene and the lone officer inside briefly exchanged gunfire with the perpetrators, but they were able to flee the scene.
Over three hours later, Davis stole a vehicle after exchanging gunfire with its owner. He attempted to flee the area; however, he was spotted by police and arrested. Meanwhile, Twinning broke into a house and took one of its occupants hostage. The house was surrounded by deputies of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and at approximately 9:00 a.m., he released the hostage and committed suicide when the deputies entered the house. Davis was sentenced to death but had his sentence commuted to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole in 1973. He killed himself[2] at Kern Valley State Prison in 2009.
The Newhall massacre resulted in a number of changes at the CHP, including procedural changes in arresting high risk suspects and standardization of firearms and firearms training used across the department.--Wikipedia

Walt has controlling interest in this pair, not the pair who are rumored to be breaking up over goofy mistakes that Minnie made or may not have made. Again.

They're so far from straight it can't be just a sudden phase.
