lived there for 8 years, on Tevis Ave,
down by Los Coyotes and Wardlow I think,
Moved to Santa Ana in 62, lived there till I joined the Navy,,
lived all over OC after that, Garden Grove, Huntington Bch, Fullerton,
then moved to Riverside, Sunnymead, Now called Moreno Valley, Perris,
before moving to the central valley in 1990.

Back then, people would just help a guy out when something like this happened.

Nowadays, the plane would be impounded, the pilot would get a ticket, the mechanic would be sued, the neighbors would be complaining about having to detour a couple blocks, and the city council would use it as an excuse to annex the nearest small airfield.

I think maybe this is why I like old stuff; it's a connection to a time - and a mindset - that's long gone.

The burned-out Monticello Hotel, Norfolk, Va., and fire apparatus frosted with icicles. The New Year's Day 1918 fire was thought to be the work of enemy agents.

QUOTE WIKIPEDIA: "Bandmate Waylon Jennings gave up his seat on the plane, causing Holly to jokingly tell Jennings, "I hope your ol' bus freezes up!" Jennings shot back facetiously, "Well, I hope your ol' plane crashes!" It was a statement that would haunt Jennings for decades."

Jimi: HELL, some ballsy guys were just jokin' around during a bad period of weather, folks. Let's just leave it lie at that. Sad day.






Thanks, nevertheless, go to the Holley (correct spelling)

THANK YOU. Buddy will never, ever be forgotten.

THAT'll be the day!

Hey!---How many of you remember those old traffic signals that the arms came out & said either RED "STOP or GREEN GO"??---And when the arm was up, a bell went "DING".
Yes and there was no yellow light either. They took them out when I was in around 2nd grade in the early 50's. We left L.A. for 2 years and lived in Cincinnati when I was 4-5 years old and came back in 1950. I remember wondering why they didn't have 3 phase lights here like they did in Cincy and also why they didn't have the extensive trolley bus system they had there.
