BOLD AND BOULDER--THROWBACK THAT TIE plus A MOON RISE

BOLD AND BOULDER
putting elections and other foibles in perspective
    Power, force and mystery collude in the mountains to impose a sense of permanence. It is here that all human designs are rendered as temporary and passing. But it is in the mountains that humankind is also inspired, even in a mystical union and state of awe.
Life on the edge
Cosmic furniture moving

Layers of Time
How many millions of moon rises have these mountains seen?

Peaceful but powerful 
God's Marbles



Between a rock and a…..
Immovable


THROWBACK THAT TIE
   A couple of observations about this 1967 radio promotion photo. This was a benefit and the queen and her court are "pinning" us. Note that all of the "pin-ees", even the chairman of the health association are looking at the camera, except yours truly who seems more taken by the princess. 
   That tie! Well, it was the age of "mods". Side burns too.
   The WERK KREW jocks, Big Joe London, Wild Bill Shirk, "Mr. Show Biz" Gil Hole and Tommy the C. Yea, it was an age for nicknames too.
ONE MORE MOON RISE
since you can never see enough
   It loomed large as it poked up over the Santa Lucia range. Color from the not yet set sun splashed over the mountains.
 Just above the horizon it looked like a special effect.
  As it continued its rise it began to get smaller.

    See you down the trail.

  1. Knowing how tall you are, Big Joe would appear to be over 7 feet tall! Was he?

  2. Big Joe was indeed big. 7 ft+. Great fellow. He and I drove a VW fastback back from NJ in 69. His knees were as high as the steering wheel.
