Roy's Postcards: 1984/04/24
Daddy, Leonard and I are at the Los Angeles Airport to meet Mommy and Wootie [Rachel] who are coming home from Texas. I love the blimp, and Daddy & Leonard saw this boat on Saturday.
THE QUEEN MARY, escorted by thousands of small craft, fireboats and Coast Guard Cutters, sailed proudly into Long Beach Harbor, 10 A.M., December 9, 1967. Tired and travel-worn, the Queen Mary was slowly edged into Pier E to begin the conversion to her new career as a marine museum, hotel-restaurant - shop - tourist and convention complex.
Love of the blimp is a Richardson genetic trait.
The postcard copywriter gets so excited about the possibilities of the Queen Mary that commas in a list give way to non-comma punctuation marks.
