Debbies Book will be closed until the new year.
Enjoy the break. I know I will.
Of course, for all of the users out there, Christmas will be coming a little late this year.
I’m putting the 2014 book together!

You can’t miss Milt & Edie’s at the corner of Pass and Alameda. That hot pink awning and signage are beacons to the faithful, who come with garments in hand, knowing that Milt & Edie’s Dry Cleaners will make those clothes clean, crisp and beautiful again.

First time I met Randy he was located in a warehouse in Monrovia, California. Deep in the back were rows and rows of motorcycles. Some went so deep that you had to climb up some stairs and squeeze by a couple of rows to see his inventory.
You would discover all kinds of motorcycles in MovieMoto’s collection. From the odd and unknown to the staples: Russian, Japanese, American, and British bikes. He had quite the collection! An even better bonus was that if you needed pairs or triplicates he most likely had the selection of multiples you would need.
Well that was several years ago, but his hobby and collection are still close to his heart. He’s now in a new building with plenty of space to easily view his 500 classic and exotic motorbikes.Website: www.MovieMoto.com
