    Still though, I’m sure Bond would approve.

    ” … Bob’s Stardust Lounge and Tiki Bar.”

    I like that. That’s nice. And not an-historical. There were places named like that in the 1950s and even into the 60s, at least in SoCal. “Tiki” and “Stardust” food and grog shops were common then.

    Tiki Torches surmount both of our decks today — in the Pacific Northwest! Fueled by citronella-laced kerosene.

    One of my favorite movies is “Starlift.” Finest cinematic tango I have seen: Janice Rule and Gene Nelson. Doris Day and Ruth Norman also are featured, and Virginia Mayo, whose finest work, IMO, is with Cagney in West Point Story, which includes Doris but features Jimmy and Virginia.

      1) I am never a-historical – sometimes I’m a horse’s ass, but never, ever t’other.

      2) Keep the home Tiki’s burning.

      3) I will have to keep an eye out for Starlift.

    Could you please tell me if this is Ashlynn Martin from 1967? If so, her real name was Laura Lynn Hale and she was my first cousin. She died many years ago of suicide. Thank you.

      I was just thinking of Laura and started looking, wondering if she was alive. We were close friends in the late 60ies 70, 71 in nyc. I got out in 72 and went to Hawaii and changed my life and lost contact with her. I grew up in canada, and was in highschool when the playboy issue came out with laura’s centerfold, the pictures looked so much like me, [the one on the couch] it actually looked more like me than it did of laura. anyway people were coming up to me asking is that you, asking my mother was her daughter in playboy. I moved to new york when i was 18 met Laura around 21 and awhile later discovered the playboy pic connection. We were too beautiful and too young. Sorry to hear she took her life. If you would tell me when she died i’d appreciate it.
