  5. This is a Fairchild C-123. The crash occurred in North Babylon, Long Island, New York, as the aircraft was attempting an emergency landing on Southern State Parkway. The aircraft and 3 cars collided resulting in one death of a person in a motor vehicle.

    I suspect that the US air force bought the old Pontiac.

    Hopalong Cassidy, a class act...

    In the 1950’s Long Beach seemed to be the hotspot for all things Hopalong Cassidy. Well, it seemed to us at the time. He was so popular from his TV shows and his all black outfit that it was a little crazy. Two, chrome 6 guns in black holsters, black boots, black shirt, crazy, black hat all contrasting with his white horse, Topper.

    upload_2017-9-17_5-26-17.png upload_2017-9-17_5-26-55.png
    Several of the above cards showed up on our birthdays, much to our happiness. Also, our friends that worked in the nearby Terminal Island, Chicken of the Sea Tuna Factory showed us the “Hoppy” Tuna Cans…Normally, we ate a lot of fresh tuna, but then, tuna sandwiches at the elementary school became really big, needless to say.
    All of this marketing, plus his ever popular TV show was a genius move in the 50’s. We were hooked.

    Somebody we know in their Hopalong Cassidy outfit.

    The rest of the old photographs got misplaced in my wife’s yearly clean out process over the years. Now, they are all digitized, but the complete outfit including the one with the "double six gun" photo is missing.

    At the time, the whole Hopalong Cassidy outfit was one set. The sad thing was, I had to give it to my little cousins because I outgrew it. This was in 1951, after 6 months of being the “black outfit” TV hero. I could not wear the complete outfit anymore, not even those tall black boots.

    So, I became my own western hero with his sidekick, Duke. But this outfit was a combination of many different hats, shirts, chrome 6 guns and cowboy boots. A real So Cal western fanatic built from different cowboy influences. It was probably those cowboy TV shows that influenced me to change outfits to match the hero of the day. I was probably Gene Autry, "The Singing Cowboy," at one time. Ha!

    JNAKI, you are Now My Hero! Hoppy was probably my most favorite cowboy. I didn't have his outfit or any part of it (Fanner 50 for me), but he was still my Saturday morning hero. If I get a chance to see him again, I once more become that little cowboy of my youth. Thanks for the memory, Carp

    Women's arms are like that. Ask your wife or girlfriend to stick her arm straight. I never learned why.
