Actually there were two Airstreams. I'll resize the other and post here in a minute.

I took that exact same shot only with my little Ford Ranger parked next to the airstream. It's also a popular tourist stop for the French....I just missed a busload...whew! Nothing against the French but it would've certainly delayed my grilled cheese sandwich

Annette: that's funny because while I was there, a French family came in, having driven all the way from San Francisco to see just the Bagdad Cafe. They were shocked when I told them I had never seen the movie. It was a classic route 66 stop though, with ice cold beer to boot.

The beer was indeed ice cold...just a tad colder than my "grilled" cheese sandwich I actually loved being there but I was on a sort of vision quest, having seen the movie, I was searching for some magic. It's cool that you just happened upon it. The movie is quirky, not to everyone's taste, but I highly recommend it. Of course, if the French like it, you have to wonder - they do have that Jerry Lewis thing, you know.

I had to crack up on that one, it's so true!

Never heard of it

Until now. The movie that is..... What's it about? And why are the French so interested in it?

It's good that that poor Airstream gets some loving attention. It sure needs it.

Now I'm worried that I've irritated a whole country....or at least the French posters on this forum. I'm sorry

Please - only my last name is French. Not that I have anything against them. My family got out of there in the 1700's. I'm still snickering about the Jerry Lewis comment.

I highly recommend the movie, too, but then I'm rather quirky. It was GREAT; Jack palance was GREAT, the whole thing was GREAT!!!

I just happened to run across the film, which is how I usually end up with my all-time favorites... never mind the critics!

The movie is a small independent film by a German director about a large german woman tourist who is ditched by her husband so she ends up at the Bagdad Cafe which is run by a black woman. A whole slew of quirky characters live at the motel, or pass through, including Jack Palance who is an artist and lives in the airstream. And he ends up painting the german woman - and falling for her........

There's more, but that's it in a nutshell.

(OK, so I'm no Ebert!)

BTW, I wonder why no one has rescued those poor trailers.

Hey Summer,
Sorry to stir this up, but it doesn't sit right with me to hold my tongue.
Although you were critical, I don't think that you were mean spirited. And I
support you for admonishing any dangerous behavior.
We know that I am a creep and a pig, and it would be a dream come true for me to play host to a hungry lady without a place to sleep. To be
honest, I am so sure that I fixed up my airstream, so women wouldn't be grossed out. But even I am grossed out by name calling. I don't think that it
is constructive, and it can only be meant to hurt. I think Airstreams are best
utilized when they are shared with gracious guests . You are welcome to "mooch" off me though.
You do make me laugh, but you are not a "joke". I too, purchased my trailer before I could tow it. I hope that people don't start calling me names.

Hey TLC,
Thank you so much for getting Summer to post. I really enjoy her
writing style. You are entertaining as well. Keep up the good work.
M Dave
