    An appropriate place for it. If I had my Silver Twinkie, I'd definitely be there myself.

    I didn’t even think about that… 01BBE400-D81D-487F-9E6F-91D759541057.jpeg It’s a prison now. But parts of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest are related and maybe some filming from that place. AB24648F-6156-4903-9C4B-0CE854DB55DE.jpeg

    I know it was a big deal at the time. It could have to do with a character or something. Maybe it’s just urban legend.

    Nice! My brother Tim has a longtime friend whose dad was a Great Northern/Burlington Northern freight conductor, and was assisting on the production of 'Emperor of the North' with Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine, as he'd started his career when steam was still king.
    That was filmed on a branch off the GN/SP&S Inside Gateway.

    Actually, he wasn't; Eastwood was born about six months before Dad in 1930, and was in his third decade in the Sixties. I have a story about Clint Eastwood:

    My brother Tim used to work for Golden Oldies Records, based in Seattle but many locations along the I-5 corridor from Everett to Olympia. Anyway, I'm at the Tacoma location, chatting with one of Tim's former co-workers, and he's going through a stack of 45's, cleaning, resleeving and pricing. He finds a record in a 'picture sleeve' (I can't remember who the artist was), but inside with the 45 was a clipping from the Seattle Times dated sometime in the mid-50's. It told of a rescue of a man drowning in Green Lake in Seattle, by a Ft. Lewis soldier, a Corporal by the name of Clinton Eastwood.

    I was a teenager then. I do know my dad traded in the ‘64 Impala for a Lincoln just to take them to the Shriners football game.
