Message: Hey, Debbie Miles and John,
I had a Cougar sighting of Debbie's mother and sister at the bull riding event over Labor Day weekend in Bishop. It was fun to see Sherrie's daughter in the mutton busting contest. I have not had a Cougar sighting of Jim Calkins yet, when I have been stocking trout in the big city, Bishop.
Hey Rick, Jim's out there, believe me, along with his wife of 40 some years, Carol Dunlap Calkins HHS61. Good to hear from you......

Message: My first car was a hand-me-down 51 Plymouth ?Cranbrook? 4-door flathead 6. I lowered it, split the manifold for dual pipes, shaved the deck & hood, got all the dings out of it, etc. Had it all ready to paint when someone creamed the left back fender while it was parked in the HHS parking lot. Never found out who did it. I figured it must have been someone from Morningside or Leuzinger who temporarily lost their way. I know that none of our HHS guys/girls would have done a thing like that. Hmmm? Finally ended up swapping out the 6 cylinder for 56 Fury V8 engine. It was a real sleeper and a lot of fun. Got pulled over a few times but never got a ticket in it. Those all came later with my next car. Cruisers forever!!
I got hit by some girl from El Segundo once. Maybe it was her.

Message: We used to listen to the funnies on the radio too. We called him the funny paper man I think. It was so fun we would listen to him first thing in the morning and couldn't wait to get the paper to see the pictures. We watched the program on the El Segundo murders. It was very interesting especially since it was in our own backyard. My husband lived in El Segundo at that time, he was a Senior. That town was really on edge. It really took me back with all the 1950's photos. When my kids were young we had lots of polywogs too. Then we had lots of little bity frogs. My boys had some in shoe boxes until they dried up. Most of the frogs disappeared probable eaten by animals.
I remember the little frogs (or toads) too. Thanks Marilyn....

Message: I've been away from the computer for a while but I can't resist throwing my "first car" into the arena. Bought it from Ray Gagne. A red 1959 two seater with a sun roof, 4 speed, air cooled mid engine, Positraction (Ok, solid rear axle) and the ultimate unique feature, one door, on the front. A BMW Isetta. Ray gave that little jewel to me for $25. After overhauling the 1 cylinder 12hp engine a couple of times I sold it for $30. I wonder if Ray wants it back as much as I do?
Hey Calvin, I remember that was the time when we were all making fun of the imports. No way they would EVER compete with the big 3; GM, Ford, or Chrysler. Yeah right....

Message: About the El Segundo Homicides. At the time my wife's father was working at P.O.P., and drove down Sepulveda (PCH) every day. He matched the description of the murderer, and was arrested and held for more than a day until they verified that he had been at work at the time, and wasn't involved. He was stopped and arrested 3 more times after that by different area agencies. He finally had to get a letter, certified and notarized by the El Segundo Chief of Police, that he wasn't the suspect so he wouldn't get taken in any more.
They finally located Gerald Mason, the actual killer, in South Carolina and arrested him in January 2003. He was found when a detective submitted a single fingerprint to the FBI automated system, and it turned up Mason. He has since pleaded guilty to the crimes.

Message: I was working at the refinery in El Segundo when the policeman were murdered and the town was in shock for several years. Folks couldn't understand how something like that could happen to the sleepy little town that rolled up the sidewalks at 6pm.
Also in the late 40's there was the "Black Dalia" murder case which I don't think was ever solved. Torso parts were scattered around a vacant lot around Watts and every once in a while it is still mentioned in the paper.

City and State: TWIN FALLS, IDAHO
Message: Today I went to beautiful downtown TWIN FALLS, IDAHO to help everyone celebrate TWIN FALLS' 100th birthday. Downtown TF consists of a charming street named Main St (of all things!) with beautiful mature trees and flowers on both sides with very wide sidewalks. In the first couple of blocks on both sides of the street were old OLD cars and old cars and a lot of 56/57 Chevys and a few Model T's. Much fun. And then all the vendors selling their goods (or "bads", whichever way you want to look at it!); the vendor food places. They were also preparing for a dutch oven cookout but I was too hungry to wait. So I went to "O'Dunkens" which is an Irish sort of bar (I asked for milk with my sandwich and guess what! They don't HAVE milk!!! So, woe is me, I was forced to drink MORE BEER! heehee). Live music and different bands every hour. Last one I caught was an ooom-pah-pah band. Didn't realize there were that many people in ALL of Idaho. A good time was had by all! Ooops! Sorry John! But I mean, after all! TF is, after all, 100 years old now! The street actually reminded me a little of Venice's boardwalk. LOL!
Sounds like great fun Doris. You didn't see Jakejude there did you?
Congrats to the Angels and Dodgers for the simultaneous come from behind clinchers of their respective divisions. Sloey, see I told you that LoDuca trade would pay off. OH, and Happy Birthday not only to Twin Falls but also to Jim Sloey who is coincidentally 100 today....
