White Christmas For Sale

We're setting records here in Coeur d'Alene. According to the 5 o'clock news, we just had 39" of snow fall since Wednesday morning. Three winters ago they reported we had about 40" for the entire winter.

Knott's Berry Farm

I see Kyle & Katelyn made an all-day visit to Knott's Berry Farm -- but did they talk with their Grandpa's first girlfriend, Marilyn? As you can see, Kenny is very much in love!
There were two ladies, on a bench, named Cecelia and Marilyn. They never needed to be fed or paid - just repainted. Claude Bell, the man that built the big dinosaur in Cabazon, California sculpted them in the late 40s.

So, are the girls still there?

Merry Christmas, all. Yet another short clip from those Original Wrigley's of So. CA. This one was a 'dream-like' vision, double exposure done on purpose by either Kenny or Mom. (such creative people) It's filled with the usual suspects: Mom & Dad, Kenny & Millie, our dog, G.I. Joe and me and a family friend (in Navy uniform) named Tex, plus Cousin Frankie and Patty. Note, I show off my new (very) red one-piece PJ outfit with (of course) the matching booties and cousin Frankie seems to think I'm Santa. Looks to me like we had a lot of presents under the tree -- must have been very good kids! Note: Norm is 'In The Army Now'.....
