Puttering around with streaming from Netflix, last night, we watched another episode from The Life of Mammals, and then the very first episode of Rocky and Bullwinkle. Yes, I know. Silly. But it brought back some memories. For example, the narrator of the Fractured Fairy-tales was Edward Everett Horton...when I was in my teens in Encino, and rode my bike to high school at Birmingham High School in Van Nuys, I would take a pedestrian bridge over the Ventura Freeway that let me out on Edward Everett Horton Lane, a tiny street south of Burbank Blvd. It received that name because Horton owned a mansion and grounds on the south side of Burbank, whose driveway opened onto this little street. Nowadays, that whole block or two is filled with apartment buildings. I suppose that the estate sold the property after his death to developers...

Anyway, it was memories...sitting with my sisters, watching Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle Moose managing through dumb luck to defeat the Slavic Spies, Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale. *Sigh*.
