    Thanks for the picture. A bit off the subject, but since the Temple's are pictured, this reminds me of the story my dad now in his 90's told me of a time in the '40s when he was in the Marines, hitchhiking in his uniform. A couple picked him up (in a car, not a bike) to help him toward his destination. During the ride, this couple invited him to their home for dinner before he continued on his journey. Turned out it was Shirley Temple's folks. She was not there at the time, but my father stated many times how gracious the parents were. She sure was an influent on others and cheered up a nation at a critical time in history.
    Trying not to hi-jack the OP, just thought it might add some flavor.

    WillFam:
    Neat story!
    As a GI, in the early 50s, did quite a bit of 'thumbing a ride' in the US. Couple times, folks did invite me over for a meal.
    Brings back a few 'old' memories . . .
