I missed this post earlier
(Snap, Crackle & Pop Part 2) -
just came across it.
I think that was Tim Considine in the Spin and Marty show. I liked him, I think he was a Hardy Boy later, but I could be wrong.
I think the old style places with the juke box and the spinning stools and the milkshakes were the best. There
was no place like this in my town where I grew up, just Woolworth's that did have those things - but no dancing.
We teens used to meet at a place called the Burger Bar, which was like a McDonald's except there were no tables.
Finally, when I was 16 Shakey's Pizza had a dance night.
My partner and I won the dance contest and got a free
large pizza! I didn't even know him, but we had a good time. Most dances for us were at the highschool or a home party.
I know you said you like stories from my years in California, but I have thought it over and I can't think of any funny or even nice stories. My teen years were full of angst, broken hearts and disillusionment. Not fit for my happy little blog.
I want you to know though how much your comments and friendship mean to me. It warms my heart when I see you
on my blog.

Well doggone it, Belle, this is such a nice comment that I decided to bump it up to the front page! You have me reaching for my hanky!
Thank you so very much for the kind words!
You're right! That was Tim Considine as "Spin" playing opposite David Stollery as Marty. The two boys started out hating each other and ended the series as best friend. It's a life lesson for all of us.
You also remembered correctly that Tim Considine was one of the Hardy Boys (along with Tommy Kirk) in that Disney serial.
Remember the Hardy Boys in Mystery of the Applegate Treasure in 1956? Gold doubloons and pieces of eight?
Don't go away. When we come back we'll meet another couple and find out everything that happened on their date. Back in 2 and 2!
