WHERE DOES IT ALL COME FROM?


the Wanderling


"As we traveled along I told my uncle about a great story I read in a Gene Autry comic called 'Ship in the Desert' (issue #52, June 1951) as well as an another one in an Uncle Scrooge comic called 'The Seven Cities of Cibola' (issue #7, September 1954) wherein wrecked Spanish galleons had been found in the desert in both stories. As near as I could remember, as far as the ships were concerned, the punchline for both stories were associated with an old Colorado River channel covered and uncovered over the centuries by flash floods or some such thing leading to the Salton Sea."

Why Beach Blanket Bingo? In several places I write about a purposely left unnamed fellow-student I met in college that I give title to as being a gorgeous raven-haired beauty, a direct quote that a friend of mine used to describe her. I bring her up here because of me she appeared in a brief dancing scene in one of the beach party movies, most specifically the last in the series called The Ghost In the Invisible Bikini. The movie can be reached in its entirely by going to the Beach Blanket Bingo comic book page.
