Last Saturday New York Police Officers turned their back on Mayor DeBlasio as he spoke at the funeral of a fallen officer, Rafael Ramos.  A shameful political act in my mind.
Happy Birthday to actor Martin Milner who turns 82 years old today. Martin is best know in my house as Officer Malloy on "Adam 12." He is married and has four grown children.

This one photograph stirs lots of memories.  My family came out to California from Minnesota in a four-door Chevy Belair like this one.  Imagine two adults and five kids crammed into a car this size.  I was usually in the front seat between mom and dad. 

I can remember going to the A & W drive-in in Chino and getting my food on trays placed at the window.  Anyone else remember the baby burgers and baby root beer mugs?  My friend Charm worked as a carhop at that A & W.

Of course, the speaker on the pole is from the days of drive-in movies.
