For people who attended Crawford High School or would have attended if they hadn't
moved -- or just have fond memories of San Diego in the '40s, '50s and '60s.

IT'S WARM AND STILL OVERCAST in Pacific Beach.  I've visited Mom three times this week.  She's somehow more confused and, at the same time, a little more verbal.  Go figure.  Looks like Nancy will have the delightful task of running errands with me on this Fry Day.

Marilyn Jameson Schupp '61 has subscribed to the quarterly newsletter.  Did you know that she and her twin sister Carolyn came to Crawford from Fallbrook during their Senior Year?  Perhaps their parents thought they could get a gooder education in the big city.

Victor Perez '71 has sent an explanation about the Blue Mews in last week's photo of his classmates at Petco Park.  Blue Mews is Petco's cat mascot.  Their dog mascot goes by the name of Red Ruff.

My husband just purchased these postcards on eBay. I thought I might share them with you.  He picked them up because he is a "bus fan" and these also share bus station locations in San Diego -- Lynne Earhart Miranda ’72

Looking Up Broadway, San Diego, California:  San Diego "where California Began" is California's third largest city. The city includes the beach resort communities of La Jolla, Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, and Ocean Beach. San Diego is one of the outstanding Naval operating bases in America.

U. S. Grant, San Diego, California:  This Famed hotel is located in the heart of downtown San Diego and faces Horton Plaza which has been a place of interest since 1870.

(Thanks, Lynne -- Your husband might enjoy the photo Nancy's father took of the first busses arriving at the Adams Avenue car barn as well as the color photos of some of the old San Diego streetcars -- JF)

Ron "Red" Thrash '68 passed away unexpectedly on August 6th.  A memorial service was held at the Yorba Linda Community Center on August 12th.  Click HERE if you'd like to sign the guest book.
