I'll have to look for those. Found them, I watched all the Rockford shows when they came out ,but 40 some years ago, long time....., watching now is almost like the first time. Hammer of C Block, Second Chance, & Just another Polish Wedding, all with Issac. Netflix is handy.

FYI: All the episodes are on HULU too. 8)

Up above the sunny skies in south California
There's a wounded rocket flying high, heading homeward
It came from a hollow, under a hill
And soon there'll be nobody left to kill
In California

Last night captain Black went dancing at the Whiskey A-Go-Go
When a well-known groupie knocked him back, busted his ego
Stoned out of his head, he crawled off to bed
The following morning he went to the pad
The missile was standing pointing to the skies of California

The red balloon was flying high, watching the weather
Captain Black was trying hard to get it together
Immediate names came into his brain
A rocket from China, a Russian plane
He pushed the wrong button and soon there'll be no place called
California

Back in the late-eighties and early-nineties, some goombas decided it was a really great idea to build a convention center on Lighthouse Field. A whole bunch of people - including just about every professional surfer in the world - banded together to stop that shit. And that's why the area around Lighthouse Point, Steamer Lane and Its Beach is still green...

A big chunk of that land was donated by my aunt Grace Rodgers family. She used to have a big two story victorian on that property we'd visit when in SC. She also ran the Miss California pageant for twenty years or so. She was forced to sell her house on the hill when UCSC went in. I learned how to surf right there at Steamer Lane, way back when Natural Bridges had bridges.

Well, there used to be three bridges. Now there's only one:

My first beach/tide pool experience was there and of course we'd go back and forth across the now eroded bridges, much to they're demise. The Loma Prieta earthquake didn't help either.

Nice pic. 8)
