The Long, Long Trailer


This movie was shot in 1954 and featured Lucy & Desi ( yes, those two zany characters) as Nicky and Tacy.
Anyone ever wonder what happened to this trailer of the stars.

Well, my good friend Indian Joe, those of you who read my books have met him more than one, bought the trailer and hauled it down to 'Angels Camp' just south of La Salina. Joe moved on last year but the trailer still sits among the lava rocks of Angels Camp.

I don't know, Bernie ......

Went to Google and pictures are showing a different trailer. It's a good story, anyway.

Hey! Dennis don't feel bad


They were more Joe's memory's than mine..............but he swore that it was used in that movie and a bunch of other stuff that I don't remember except the Disney characters, on both sides, were painted on when it was used as a meeting room or a dressing room on the studio lot.

Joe used the trailer as overflow sleeping space for his flakey friends from all over the world....hockey players from Canada, back country blokes from Australia.........crabbers from Alaska, oil guys from Saudia Arabia, and a few con men and crooks...........he just loved people like I do.......only difference is he never drew any lines.........Come to think of it, I don't know why he liked me but we did so enjoy each others company.

He even sent one of my books, to a State Prison back east, to one of his friends---no not a guard. Told me everyone in the joint enjoyed my book.........My response......those guys will read anything!

So much for memory's and boy do I have a ton.

I don't really care for mices..........rabbits, and roadrunners are more my speed!

This is the edit.....Besides I was just showing David K that I did remember how to load a picture.
