A Trip Down Memory Lane


My old high school chum, Bob Thompson, sent me this e-mail today after reading my murder mystery Evil in the Mirror:

“I once knew a set of identical twins. WE rode Cushman motor scooters, swam and fished in Peckstein reservoir not far from your house in San Marcos (drinking water for Vista, California and we use to pee in it too!). Cruised in a black SHOEBOX Ford that had flamed black and white tuck and roll, got BUSTED at the illegal Hourglass drags races out by Miramar air base (Me- your Pop, Walt and you.) I hope this is not a veiled biography of later days? Your book “Evil in the Mirror” scared the crap out of me!


Memories flooded into my mind like fine wine and warmed my senses with youthful recollections of wonderful times gone by. Bob also attached great pictures of his current classic cars. He always had the neatest cars in high school!

We looked forward to our 50th high school reunion in 2011, so we could reminisce in person while dancing to rock and roll music and acting like teenagers again. What a wonderful time we had….

Would I go back? No, I like who I am and where I am at now. But, it is nice to remember the good times and take the mental time machine back to a gentler era when things were so simple and life was innocent.

I’m just saying,
