Anytime I’m plotting another motorcycle trip out west, find myself looking over Eastern Arizona, and notice Winslow, I can’t resist picturing standing on a corner and a girl, my lord, in a flatbed Ford. I think everyone must do that.
Back in 1990 I saw a video that, for some strange reason, got stuck in my mind and never came unstuck. It was called “I Left My Wallet in El Segundo.” Stickmen doing the “Walking Man”, “ax”, “tomorrah”… something so very catchy about the video and the story it tells. Also I think of it anytime I hear mention of the town of El Segundo.
Tonight I ran across it on YouTube. Cool. Now I know where to find My Wallet as well as that girl in the flatbed Ford.
