Everybody has fifteen minutes of fame in their life it's been said. Here's one of those fifteen for my Mother and I. This was an educational film shown in schools across the country back in 1976 when skateboarding was really taking off. I play the part of the rider (48 secs in) who is "Un-aware of the do's and don'ts" and ends up getting hit by a very cool car driven by my Mother. As you will see, she clearly runs the stop sign before running me down. In her defense, it's probably hard driving while wearing bell bottoms. It took all day to film, and we each received $50 and one credit with CBS. I noticed while editing this, at one point in the movie, a kid kicks a dead rat off the sidewalk for "safety". Also realized that very few riders were wearing helmets. The narrator is Vic Perrin, who was most famous for doing the intro "Control Voice" in the TV show 'Outer Limits'. These are just some highlights, full version of film can be seen by Googling "Skateboarding to Safety" (with quotes).

Way back in 2005, the very last Titan IV.  I didn't take this photo, but I was about 3 miles from the launch pad.  Pretty spectacular.  Here's the report I entered at SoCal-SkyLights.org:    ---------------------------------------------->   Wow! This was one day I was actually glad to be a taxpayer! My love and I parked at the North end of Union Sugar Road on the bank of the Santa Ynez river next to an immense field of artichokes, just under three miles from the launch pad. We could see the top 30 feet of the mobile service tower and the nose cone of the rocket through a grove of trees. The weather was perfect with only a few alto-nimbus clouds floating by. 

Liftoff occurs, the last of the Titans slowly lifts up past the trees and comes into full view. Through binoculars we could see the lettering on the rocket. The flame was so very very bright, it burned an image in my retina that lasted for at least 20 minutes. The length of the flame was 3 or 4 times the length of the rocket itself. It only took a few seconds before the sound hit us. It started off as a loud low roar building into a thunderous clapping earth-shaking mind-blowing sound that will never be forgotten. The rocket turned to the South and pointed its engines almost directly at our location. You could actually feel the sound pressing against your skin and jostling your internal organs. When booster separation occurred, we could see both boosters tumbling down along with a mysterious 3rd piece of hardware we didn't expect to see. Everything faded into the sky except the wondrous contrail that looked like a 10 mile high thunderhead. We could still hear the rumble and crackle of the engines until 11:11, some 7 minutes after liftoff.

Great shot +Todd Walker . At that time of year you can see the full sunset. Other times, when viewing from Shell Beach, the sunset dips behind the mountain there at port San Luis. Stunning place. Proud to live here.

My cool Grandparents!

Walter Walker: Being interviewed by historians about his vast knowledge of wagons. He was quite possibly the best saddle maker in the Universe (that's right Aliens, I said it, let's see what you got).

Etta Walker: Now a Great-Great-Grandmother, reigning over an extensive amount of humans throughout this fine land. Here she's making bread from the same everlasting yeast that came over with the pilgrims.
