I remember trying to download something overnight.



Those days were a nightmare
of waiting and slowness and
failures. Like the move from
crystal radio sets to transistors.
Took forever.

as a boy, back in the day, like so many, I loved the Batman and Superman comic books
but I also loved the spinoffs which I'll never forget.............these:











and I loved this second stringer - not as good as Batman and Superman but still:

another show I loved as a little kid - Zorro

to right every wrong
so heed well my name.......................................Zorro"

nobody could figure out his identity behind his mask because he pretended to be the prissy Don Diego

I was a big Legion of Super heroes fan back in the day when I read comics 1967 to about 1973

I remember when ex high school students would visit teachers during class without an appt or name tag. I showed up 6 years later in 1994. High security.

I returned 17 years later as a substitute teacher, high school is another country. Generations change every 5 or 15 years.
I belong to an elite group called the "Zombie Outbreak Response Team."

In the 60's we had guys who
had dropped out of school
taking classes again. 20 year
old's in the same class as 15
year old's. They couldn't pass
a GED so they let them back
in school. Now if you're over
18 you can't go back to HS.

Remember when you could go to Bobís Big Boy restaurants and get the comic book for free up next to the cash register? Big Boy, Dorothy and their dog Nugget. I think they stopped the comic book maybe 30 years ago.

A Bob's Big Boy just opened at one of the Terrible's casinos. I believe it is the only Big Boy in Nevada.

I just looked up Terribles in Jean to see if they made any mention of it and could not find anything. Iíd be tempted to stop there for a Bobís big boy burger someday. Apparently Terribles hotel and casino is currently closed due to the pandemic.

Never went inside, always stayed
in the car for the hot carhops in
their short skirts and roller skates.
