The Stars of Catalina

17 May

“John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Ronald Reagan and Errol Flynn, who often sailed his yacht to the island to hunt wild boar.” (Author’s note: Make that yachts … The Bachelor/Cheerio II, Sirocco, and Zaca.)

“With a tip of the cap to Copernicus, Aristotle, Galileo, and Ernie “Let’s Play Two” Banks, too!!”
