YES. This was in an 'Ebonics' neighborhood close to Orlando, Fl. ( won tu tree foe fie TWEL) They were referring to Adam-12, and warning each other. I was also a musician at the resorts on the weekends, playing island music on steel drums, etc. I had that exact Tom Sellick red shirt. .. and also the suit from Miami Vice.

    Sorry, meant to reply to your message.  Yes, your comment (above) appeared.  Interesting that people referred to you/cops as "Twel."  I'd think they'd have gone with the more ubiquitous "Five-O."  In many places, cops are still called Five-O.

    But I'm glad my post could bring back some memories.   8)

    Cops often get a bad rap-- sometimes deserved, sometimes not.  [email protected] if they do, and [email protected] if they don't.

    Anyone remember the show Adam-12?  In homage to the venerable show, which launched perhaps a million careers in law enforcement, enjoy the books of the Boys in Blue.  Readers of "a certain age" might recognize certain characters, such as Pete, the veteran cop, and Jim, his young partner.

    One review calls it "Really fun--and a spot-on tribute."  Another says it's like "reading a script" from the venerable show.   ;)

    The Boys in Blue
    Pete and Jim are beat cops:  Pete's the seen-it-all veteran, and Jim the eager rookie.  Together they patrol the city and handle all types of calls, from the silly to the serious.

    This well-reviewed series includes FIVE books about average, ordinary police officers.... whose job is anything BUT "average and ordinary."  They're smart, observant, polite, and professional.  And some readers have remarked a similarity of these books to a certain very popular 1960s cop show.  *hint*Adam-12*cough*  ;)

    The Boys in Blue series consists of novella-length books, as well as a flash-fiction (very short) "origin story."  But these books DO NOT have to be read in any particular order.  Just pick one an enjoy!!
