    I can just imagine the scene the day Louise pulled in to the high school parking lot for the first time with her new car, her brother Bill said there's no way I'm riding with you in that thing, I'd rather take the bus.
     
  5. I guess that beats my 30-something years of living there.

  11. There is a beautiful bronze sculpture depicting this photo in Downtown New Westminster BC, in what would be to the right side of this location.

    I've lived in LA for 72 years and can not only see it but taste it too. Also by 1950-60's standards I can tell you right now there is no smog anymore.

    This Regulus missile type was the first of it's kind to be launched from a submarine, on Guppy'd diesel service class boats no less, Gato, Balao, and Tench classes. They were put inside a rather large hangar on the deck aft of the sail and launched from a rail just forward of the aft torpedo hatch.

    Wow, I can feel the cold in that picture. When I was a kid in Hartford, CT, we would shovel our own driveway and get all of the snow off of any car that wasn't in the garage, completely clean. Then we could go out and shovel other people's walks for cash. It was great, we worked hard and tried to get as many walks done as we could in a day, slept like logs that night. I really miss being a kid sometimes.
