Gone in 60 Seconds

Tonight I watched Gone in 60 Seconds with Nicolas Cage and I reminded Geneva about when we went to the Drive-In and watched the Original Gone in 60 Seconds and they had even trailered in the Mustang that was used in the movie… Do you think Geneva remembered.. Hell No, and then she started to say I must have taken someone else, damn I hate that, I have a pretty good memory and that was one thing that I remembered quite well, she even told me we never went to the Drive-In together and yet I remember taking her to see Clockwork Orange also ( I haven’t reminded her about that because I don’t want to be told I must have taken someone else again), the reason I remember Gone in 60 Seconds so much is because a friend of mine told me I just had to see it because the guy that made the film was a fellow Job-Shopper and he and his Brother made the film and no one would buy it, so he hand carried the film from Theater to Theater through out the Long Beach area to get it played, finally the film got picked up by a major studio and it made the rounds again and that was when I got to see it along with the actual Mustang used in the film.. big deal for me but it is obvious that Men care about things differently which makes them remember things differently… Life goes on and I guess I better stop trying to make her remember this movie or we could end up divorced for taking another woman to the Drive In (which I didn’t), the reason I remembered Clockwork Orange was I thought I recognized the people in the car ahead of us only to find out that the woman who I thought I recognized could have been there with the man I thought I recognized because her husband was out of town at the time.. their marriage didn’t last long because she ran off with the man whom I thought I had seen her with..funny how the memory works or doesn’t work in my wife’s case.. this would have been around 1975 or 76, the original movie came out in 74 but didn’t sell to the studios till later and like I said it made the circuit once again, it has a lot of great filming in OLD Long Beach with the chase scene going through Lincoln Park near the old Library which I believe is gone now, it was the only park that I knew of in Long Beach that had those great old Bronze Statues and some Old Canons, it was a beautiful park with park benches and old people feeding Pigeons, anyways the chase scene went all through Long Beach and Manhattan Beach, he even stoled a car from in front of The Whale House which was a Strip Joint out by Wilmington, the car he stole there was owned by a stripper and I thin it had a big wild cat in the back seat, then he stole a car from Whittlesey Motors on PCH, a Gull Winged Sports Car, damn my memory is good…LOL.. Well ~Peace~ and Remember when you get old the things you remember can get you in trouble if the other person has no recollection.

Selfish England

The PM and others are chastising President Trump for re-Tweeting some videos posted by a right wing extremist group that is against Muslims and compared his foolish re-Tweet with the likes of Tweeting videos posted by The Klu Klux Klan and the Mayor of London is asking the Government to tell President Trump not to come to England for a visit….Well England you seem to have a Magical Formula that makes the Muslims in England happy and docile, and you are being very selfish for not sharing this Magical Formula with your neighbor Sweden.. Sweden has had Seven Bombings in Twelve Days, Gang Rapes, the Fire Department can’t get into the No-Go Zones to put out the fires without a Swat Team for security, and here you sit on your butts with this Magical Formula that makes Muslims Happy Immigrants, you England are being very very selfish for keeping this Formula to yourselves while your fellow Europeans are suffering, step in and help the Swedes before they are wiped off the planet by their guest… STOP BEING SO SELFISH.

Winter Weather

All week night time temps into the 30’s.. it’s here, Fall was too short — Fall and Spring are the two times of the year where we get some financial relief from either our Water Bill for cooling or Gas Bill for heating, oh well it’s only money.

The Creepiness of Hollywood

Everyone seems to be disgusted about what they are finding out about the Power Players of Hollywood (and/or Politicians) and their prey of the up – n- comings… If you hadn’t figured out that everyone in Hollywood has been this way forever then you have been living in a cave, Power makes a Andy Warhol out of everyone and the want of recognition makes everyone a Edie Sedgwick, if you don’t know who these people are and their ability to feed off of eachother then you probably aren’t paying attention to what is going on and for that I say..GOOD! You’re one of the smart ones. In a drunken rage Mel Gibson tried to warn everyone and look what happened to him.

Dog Dies of Broken Heart

This story has been haunting me since I read it over a week ago, for some strange reason I don’t think someone would purposely leave their dog at an Airport, the other thing that bothers me is a Dog would only love an owner this much if the owner also loved the dog, I wonder if they checked security videos to see what had happened to the owner, but more and more we are seeing that Dogs Love their Human Companions with all their heart.

Winter is Near

This Morning I got up (Early as always) and it was Damn Cold, 34F to be exact, almost down to freezing, it will warm up a bit during the week and then go Cold on us again, this is not unusual Weather we have cycles of years with Early Winter and then we will Have cycles of Late Winter, I can remember prepping our cooler for winter and come Thanksgiving wishing we hadn’t, they say there are two types of people who try to guess the Weather here in the Desert, Fools and Newcomers, but this looks as if it is going to be a colder Winter than last and just maybe some Snow this year, we get perfect snow here the kind that is gone in Three or less days. Well had my Oatmeal and it’s just about time to get dressed and take Freedom for his walk.

~Peace~
