#throwbackthursday: Motley Crüe in Normandale, ca. 1983
In the early 1980s, my parents were among a small group who started a neighborhood watch program called the Normandale Association They worked to get our neighbors organized, to keep a look out for suspicious characters , etc. Once the program was in place, my dad went and put the metal neighborhood-watch sign near the edge of the neighborhood, and almost immediately, someone came along with red spray paint and wrote “Motley Crüe” across the back of it. My dad was furious! Thirty years later, when I drove through my old neighborhood, that sign was still there— and so was Motley Crüe.
