Flowers left for Cliff Arquette
Charlie, had his stroke on "my freeway" while I was patrolling as a CHP Officer in Southern California. I pulled up behind his rig, which was a Ford Condor Motor Home, pulling a Ramble or American Metropolitan, a small two seat car of the early 1950's. I opened the door which was in the middle of the motor home on the passenger side. He was behind the wheel and he told me he had this pain up his arm and his left leg, as I recall. I recognized the symptom of a stroke and called for an Ambulance. As we were waiting he told me he had a little cash on him and he was afraid the health people might take it from him. I'm thinking that a little cash is $400.00 or so asked how much, he said $7,400.00. He said, perhaps if I show you my driver's license you will understand. I said, I know you are Charlie Weaver. I called the Sgt while Charlie was making jokes about the Fireman who had responded on the Frontage Road parallel to I-10 in West Convina. They used ladders to climb over the fence, rather than tie up the freeway with their equipment. I had to inventory his Motor Home, he had like 100 Hee Haw tapes, the Commercial VHS kind. This was before the rest of us could buy VHS's. (now how old do some of us feel ?) I believe he lived in Moorpark, CA which later I also worked as a CHP officer in Ventura County. I have a large pin 3-4 inches in diameter, which I found in an antique shop in Hersey, PA of Charlie advertising Morgan David Wine - It is the only decoration in my cubicle at work. At any rate I really enjoyed the following jokes.
