I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you enjoyed this. Knowing your uncle now, I know how it would take a very long book to truly tell his story in all the detail it deserves. I did my best with something shorter, and I’m glad you felt it was up to snuff.
THE PERFECT SUMMARY
I talked to my wife about this, and she came up with what I think is the best version yet: LaCroix and Juul hit. The Juul was a brilliant touch by Patrick. Shirley Temple I still think is a little better than IPA. But as Patrick and you and others point out, Shirley Temples are too old-fashioned. So when my wife said,…
Yeah, I’m not sure what the controversy is. I was born in ‘79 and was taught in driver’s ed to look over my shoulder before changing lanes as a blindspot check. I still do, and it still works.

I am genuinely curious to know what color is which, especially because I’ve seen the film different times and have seen it with various different saturations (making the car look a…
WOW, I’M SURPRISED THEY LET YOU HAVE THE INTERNET IN THE OLD FOLKS HOME, GRANDPA!
I know, it’s pretty amazing how that Valiant got translated there.
Yep and to add to the trivia, Spielberg was so pissed off they used his footage like that, he had a special clause in every contract going forward that his film footage could not be repurposed.
No joke, Shirley Temples are delicious, and when we get them for the kids, I always steal sips of theirs because I am stealthy and they are easy to trick into looking “over there.”
I will keep that in mind when I turn 40 in less than five months!
How was a Peterbuilt truck keeping up with a Valiant?
