June 26--& a dollar short


There's a new coffee place near our house that is not a Starbucks. It is a place where you can go sit and have a nice cup of coffee. It opened last week, and when I went in today, the place was full of people having coffee or whatever and chatting with each other.

I spent some time reading about an old studio backlot in LA known as 40 Acres. It was where the exterior scenes for Gone With The Wind were filmed. It was also used for TV shows such as The Andy Griffith Show, Batman, Hogan's Heroes, and Star Trek.

There is one episode of Star Trek, that takes place on Earth in the 1930s, where Kirk walks past Floyd's Barber Shop from Mayberry. When worlds collide. I love reading about old film and tv locations. At one time, when I didn't have much going on in my life, I watched every episode of Adam-12, and tried to figure out where the exterior scenes were filmed. I later drove down to LA to scope them out.
