Paula Kincaid sent me a page of humorous sayings a while back. Here are some of them
When one door closes and another door opens, you are probably in prison.
I had my patience tested. I’m negative.
I finally got eight hours of sleep. It took me three days, but whatever.
I don’t mean to interrupt people. I just randomly remember things and get really excited.
I've added John Blackwood's '55 Chevy convertible to the Cars We Drove to School page.
Speaking of vintage autos, the San Diego Automotive Museum just opened an exhibit called That '70s Car Show. How did THAT happen? Cars that weren't even on the drawing board when I graduated from Crawford are now part of a show on historic automobiles. The show goes through June 13th. The Union-Tribune photo above was taken by K. C, Allred.
Remember Channel 8's Bob Regan? This photo popped up on Facebook and I'm including it here because it reminded me of when those attachments came out that you could clamp on the phone receiver. I assume they were a boon to secretaries -- and teenage girls. Bob doesn't seem to be using it correctly.
Turns out there WAS a Firing Fillies girls' rifle team. It just wasn't part of ROTC. Pat Baker checked in and set me straight. The team was affiliated with GAA, the Girls' Athletic Association. Pictured above, from the 1963 Centaur, are (Front Row) Mary Smart, Vincette Nietzie, Charlotte Haase, Sandy Wilcox, and Martha Dory. (Back Row) Pat Baker, Lynn Runge, Judy Burnham, Kathy Hane, Jo Giacalone, and Jane Farris. I'm still wondering where the indoor firing range was.
I spotted this shot in the '63 yearbook when looking for the Firing Fillies photo. It's titled All Out, and has always been one of my favorites.
The Golden Anniversary Pacer is from February 19, 1970 and is six pages in length -- or would have been if Ed Schoenberg hadn't snipped out the articles about himself. Click HERE to check it out.
In the Fry Day email of January 31st I mentioned that Rik Kranenburg '72 passed away on January 18th and that there were no further details. Turns out he died on January 17th while hiking in Grenada. His classmate Phyllis Schwartz forwards a rather lengthy obituary, which I've whittled down to three paragraphs and posted on the Class of '72 Obituary Page.
