Dear Jobe:
Thanks for your kind comments. You are right. It has been a while. Back in the 70's to be exact. It all started when I was living in Boron and working at the mine. Some people became stranded in Mojave when their bus broke down. Mojave is not a place to have a breakdown! (unless you have a lot of money) We towed the bus to Boron and got someone to fix it for them at a reasonable price. Also invited them to our home. They were very respectful people and we enjoyed having them. Very resourceful, they even made their own shoes.

My wife kept saying to one of them " I know that I have seen you somewhere before". It turns out that he was a lawyer from northern California that hung a sign on his door one day "closed forever". For a hobby, he was the conductor on a miniture train that ran in a park up there. Where my wife saw him was on the TV show "what's my line".

They ran a restaurant in Laguna beach called "love animals - don't eat them" They had a mascot that had the "run" of the rrestaurant named Colonel Sanders. This enraged the local health department and city officials and they were invited to leave town. They couldn't understand why it was ok to have a dead animal in a restaurant and not a live one. Thought a lot of those people and if anyone knows what happened to them, please let me know.

As to the incident with the house in Hawthorne, I am no lawyer, and was young back then. The impression that I recall was that in order to make someone move their house off your property, you had to file a cival suit against them and get a judgement. You had seven years and nine months to file a suit. After that, you had no recourse. I could very well be wrong. Point is that to my knowledge, Deep Creek is the only non-comercialized hot spring in southern California. It should be kept for that purpose. Please don't fight.

I have lived in Texas now for 25 years. (where God put everything that crawls,sticks, scratches, and bites) I am just north of Austin , and go to a place on Lake Travis called "hippie hollow". Gotta be the best swiming hole in Texas. check them out on the net. This is a state park, and the only clothing optional park in the state. The nudist clubs around here are not "landed" and hang out there. We are not without our problems. The state has now banished any one under 18 from the park. A fight is going on about that. Please fight for our freedom. We are the best judges of how to raise our children. Not the state or federal government. In this , and many other areas, our future as free Americans is now in jeapordy !
