Yup, that's who came to town on October 7, 1962 to play the Chargers in Balboa Stadium, a game attended by Mike Linder '66. Mike also shared his San Diego Padres 1959 Junior Boosters Season Pass. Click HERE to see it all enlarged. Do you know what became of the Dallas Texans? Do you know the name of the 1959 Padres baseball park?

The Jack in the Box web site shows this photo and talks about their first restaurant. I also have another photo from the Foodmaker archives and IT claims to be the first Jack in the Box. I'm pretty sure the photo at left is the 63rd and El Cajon site. I'm not sure about the other one. Click HERE to check them both out. Let me know what you think.

If you read the article below on Joe Randazzo in the Beach & Bay Press you can also access my bi-monthly column. Just type in John Fry in the search engine above Joe's article. I had no idea it was available on the web. Don't ask me for additional directions. That's enough tooting my own horn.
Joe Randazzo '60 has run the Chevron Station at Garnet and Ingraham for 33 years. Click HERE to read all about it in the Beach & Bay Press. Click HERE to see four photos of the station over the years, three by me and one by Howard Rozelle. I also tossed in the price of regular gasoline over the years.

They're at it again!! I think it's at an undisclosed location somewhere in Point Loma, but I'm not sure. One can only imagine the merriment that takes place when these Class of '72 hotties meet. Click on Summer Mimosa Madness for a larger view (although what they sent me wasn't very large) and a photo caption with the names and phone numbers. Ha! Ha! Fooled you! No phone numbers.

Sheldon Sarfan '61 is positive the mystery girl in the 1954 Campus Lab School Student Council photo is Virginia Miller -- it says so on the back of his copy of the photo. Bob Richardson '61 claims he can now sleep at night, except we don't know what became of Virginia. She's not in MY Crawford database.

This 1959 Thomas Brothers Map Book of San Diego will bring back memories for some of you of a time when you went out the Alvarado Freeway, or down the Wabash Freeway, or drove through Balboa Park on the Cabrillo Freeway -- and there was NO freeway to Mission Beach. You had to suffer through the traffic circle at Frontier and Rosecrans.
