Mentone, revisited

I asked my mom on Thursday whether she'd heard of Mentone. Yes, she had been there. My paternal grandmother Myrt lived in a home there the last few years of her life. She died when I was only a few years old, but I have a vague memory or two of her.

She didn't recall the Donut Hut though.

Truck load of General Lees
I saw this truck full of copies of the General Lee today at the motel parking lot near Flying J on the Grapevine (a mountain pass a little north of Magic Mountain).
As a kid, I was a fan of The Dukes of Hazzard... eep! I was just looking for the IMDB link to the old 1979 series to put with the title, and I found an entry for a 2005 movie! Well, that might explain why a truckload of them is being moved around. In case you aren't familiar with the premise, it's about the Duke family and their back-woods adventures, including outrunning crooked cops, in Hazzard County. The main things I remember from it are the orange car pictured, and Daisy Duke, whose outfit of choice helped coin the term "Daisy Duke shorts."

The con (Gallifrey One) was very fun, entertaining, and relaxing. nolly gave me nifty cool Japanese stuff and was nifty and nolly-like. I had a nap friday, massage and long bath on Saturday, before attempting to dance at the dance. Note: A dance mix of "Hit Me Baby One More Time" by Britney is not a good choice for a con dance. Pearl was being non-vocal (voice mostly gone), so I got to practice my ASL. I really want to continue with that. Maybe I'll sign up for the online class that sarahemm is in.
