Pic of the Day: “The Town Budget” revisited

We end the work week with another shot of Tim from the Alcoa Premiere (aka Alcoa Theatre) episode “The Town Budget,” first broadcast on December 15, 1958. Tim’s character, Jonas, is telling us how much he hates cops. He really, really hates cops.

"The Town Budget" Jonas really hates cops.

I had a dream last night where Tim was in a Western with Bruce Campbell. How awesome would that have been?

Boulevard of Dreams

Well, whattaya know – look what’s been only a block or so away from my house all this time!

The funny part is that “N. Carey Blvd.” doesn’t really exist. What was supposed to be a regular paved street ended up as a hiking/bike trail. The sign, however, remains. I’m seeing it as a sign from Tim that I’m on the right path.

Tim also appeared in my dream this morning. I was sitting on a park bench feeling sad. He came strolling along, looking a lot like he did in Chesty Anderson US Navy, with those goofy plaid pants and his World’s Greatest Sinner gold lamé jacket. He stopped, looked at me, grinned and said, “Going nowhere?”

I looked up at him and nodded glumly, but inside I was starting to feel happy just looking at him.

He offered me his arm and said, “Me too! Care to join me?”

I smiled and said “OK!”, then stood up, took his arm and we strolled on down the path. The end.
