a piece of the past

today is the anniversary of the crash that killd Carole Lombard.

one of the strangest gifts I've ever rec'd was a small piece of wreckage from her plane found on Potosi Mountain just outside Las Vegas.  & it happend that my friend Gary gave it to me just as we were to take one of our road trips.  this one included the small town of Oatman where Lombard honeymoond with Clark Gable.

here are some photos of me & plane piece & honeymoon hotel & "The Book of Java" at the hotel restaurant.
