I got tired of seeing the negative connotation I implied in my previous post in this category, so I thought I'd bump it myself.
I would simply like to say, I'm sure glad this forum is here and want to say thanks to Ghosttowns.com for having it. The wealth of information, comments,(and even goofing around) :D contained on this forum have helped me maintain a semblance of sanity during these hot summer months.

I wouldn't do it BB! I spent 23 hours in the plush uptown Tijauna jailhouse back in '69 after taking in the donkey show at the **** Fox. The bail wasn't too bad ($24 U.S.) but the experience of spending the rest of the night in that S***hole with a bunch of smelly, puking drunk Mexicans was something I'll remember forever. The ride to the station in the back of a '64 Impala with 5 of us jammed in the back was real memorable, too......;) OJ, weren't you on Shore Leave about that time? Hmmm............

I used to live less than an hour drive from T.J. (Camp Pendleton, CA), never got locked up luckly, but I was told I ****** all over a cop car and my friends had to, not only take a beating with me, but pay 300$ (the price has gone up), to save me, and fireman's carry me to the alley where they left me. I got my cheek bone broken in two places that night and I never went back for more

Yeah and I'm thankfull for this site too Laura, just a little burnt cause they dont let us help tho....cause that would change this place alot for the better.

Flat...you said '69...were you in the service then? If so what branch? I was in the Army from 66-69, and visited TJ couple times, but never had any trouble with corrupt policia. 2nd time forgot my pass, and had to spend some quality time with Shore Patrol at the border. The "brass" back at my base were less than happy also, thank God it was a weekend.

By l969 I'd moved a step up from Tijuana. I spent about a month one week in Yuma, bombing the Chocolate Mountains day and night, and making forays across the border to San Luis during the down time:cool: . They had some kind of Donkey show there.........So I'm told. OJ

OJ - I was out at Yuma blowing up those mts. too, but I was on the ground calling in f-18's and cobra's, we even got to play with some A-10's too.....fun stuff. Marking tgts with 155 rounds and 81mm. Those A-10's are pretty much on their own program tho

I went to see the donkey show and they said it was broke and down for repairs. They asked me if I knew anyone with a Donkey for sale :confused: Or maybe it was if I wanted to buy a donkey, not sure, my Spanglish is bad :o

Carne asada quesadilla from Roberto's. I'm sure you can find someone who knows where one is at in Cali.

Already had 2 of them keysaydillas @ Robertos. I want the 5lb macho burrito. You know. The one you mentioned earlier, with beans, cheese, beef, raccoon, wild turkey, henway, carrots, onions, garlic, and fresh anonymous roadkill.

blech pthooey, did you ever read the contents of a can of Spam? "meat" is way too general an ingredient for me.
That stuff might tempt a very hungry vulture and I figure it's probably canned by the same drug companies who make cholesterol medications...it helps keep them in business. But, you should be ok, cause you balance it out with Slurpees. Slurpees can be considered a good source of vitamin C and should be added to the category "Health Foods" Why waste time with a V8 or orange juice? :p

According to the The Amazing SPAM Home Page (http://www.cusd.claremont.edu/~mrosenbl/spam.html), the ingredients of SPAM are as follows:

chopped pork shoulder meat with ham meat added
salt (for binding, flavor, and firmness)
water (to help in mixing)
sugar (for flavor)
sodium Nitrite (for color and as a preservative)Now what could possibly be more nutritious, wholesome, and tasty? Ummm, can't wait ta git me sum!

That looks like one of those deformed animals that get donated to traveling petting zoos since it wouldn't be humane to kill them. Instead pay money to mock them and take pictures of them :rolleyes:

I bet his Mom thought he was cute! Actually, I guess he's not deformed, there were other pigs in the same photo that looked just like him. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. ;) :D
