The first customer on the elevated bikeway from Pasadena to LA.

Billy rode his bike all the way over to a place where he donate a whole dollar to the cause. That's practically a whole year's allowance. I love you Billy!

Darn it, I can't delete and correct my comment.

Billy bought that bike for a dollar at the police auction.. for unclaimed property. It's the perfect bike for all the errands he does for his mother, and now he can get a paper route to deliver the Star News. Mind the camellias, Billy!

Following up on Patrizzi's comment, this looks like the 1950s and Billy is with Nana paying for the bike he won at a silent auction fundraiser.

I don't know the whole story, but that's Dick Cheney and Jimmy Hoffa, and money is changing hands. You do the math.

To further advance Patrizzi's yarn...

Grammy has brought little Billy to the Aimee Semple McPherson's "God-o-Rama" being held at the Agape Center. In gratitude for being godsmacked from the effects of polio, Billy reaches up on tippy toe to put a dollar in the nice man's collection plate. Granny is thrilled.

I think this is the opening day of the Huntington Hospital thrift store, and the kid scored a nifty bike for a dollar. ~Ruby Jackson

who's doing recap of city council meetings now that Dormitas seems to have moved on?

Oh Anonny, we may have to settle for MG's edited council clips. http://mllegramophone.wordpress.com/2011/06/09/was-the-public-was-not-given-proper-notice/

Dianne killed him. It had to be done. She gave him forty-wacks with a toilet brush and he crawled under the Rose Bowl to die.
