    Funny things said in Court

    Got this from a friend who's wife, like mine, is a court reporter. These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while these exchanges...

    Old School Tahiti Boats Brochure

    Came across this brochure today as I'm kinda, maybe close to picking up another old, and hopefully last, Tahiti project. Brought back a ton of memories seeing these pages. Found it on a Hydro Stream owners site of all places. This had to be '72 as there are no bubble decks yet, they would come...

    Down hill skateboard documentary

    I'd forgotten about reading in one of the local papers that this film was being made. Released in '13. These events were right here in our backyard although I didn't hear about them until the 3rd year, probably because I wasn't a skateboarder. I went to that 3rd one and for some reason thought...

    simply the best Christmas movie ever made.

    Of course it's a trilogy but the other 2 don't hold up to the original.

    Old Tahiti racing picture

    I remember this picture from when I was a kid and how I thought it was pretty cool that a Tahiti made it into print. This is from an old Powerboat mag. Its funny how your memory works, for years I thought it was a shot of the little Tahiti Toad 20 racing but it's the larger 22' and I thought I...

    [WTS] Spun Aluminum tank

    38" X 8" which I think is 8 gallons. Someone painted it at some point, why...I haven't a clue. Super clean inside, built in vent which is perfect for a buggy, not so much for a boat. $100.00

    1949 Autoette

    These things were built here in Long beach and as a kid I can remember them all over the place, used almost exclusively by seniors that couldn't drive a car any longer. They were allowed to drive them on the sidewalks until an older guy took out another guy on top of a ladder changing the name...

    "Cast out, set it"

    My 2 year old grandson, he'll probably drop the pole and scream when he lands his first fish. He's 2 (a sister 1 and another sister 3 months) and this was down in the Los Cerritos Channel that's near his house and runs parallel to the San Gabriel river. Both are toilets but good for teaching...

I asked him how he was going to work it out with CRIT and he pulled up his sleve and shows his crit tattoo. Said he can...

    Roadrunner's Roadraper

    Kinda sweet for me but the girls like 'em. Back in the day it was just called a "roadrunner" and it was the size of a draft beer. Our daughters and friends finished off quite a few of them and now we have a all those mugs that never get used taking up room in the cupboard. hmmm, what to do?
