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 DARK, COLD and rainy in Pacific Beach.  Nancy and I ended up in the old neighborhood last Fry Day and dined at the Kensington Cafe.  She remembered going to the Safeway in Kensington as a toddler.  I've learned not to question her memories.

Sorry about the brevity of this posting, but I spent Monday licking, folding and banding Crawford newsletter subscription envelopes for the Class of '65, which went in the mail Tuesday.  Wednesday and Thursday were taken up folding, double-tabbing, labeling and banding 550 copies of the March newsletter.  That went in the mail yesterday.

Original faculty member Jesse Morphew showed up at last night's First Thursday Festa at Nicolosi's and asked the first old person he saw if he went to Crawford.  Turned out he did, but didn't know there was a party going on.  There may well have been 40 folks in attendance -- and only one waitress.  The lovely Bianca never folded, despite my rough behavior.

Services for Larry Mabee '61, who passed away December 16th, were held January 5th.  An obituary appeared in the U-T this past weekend.  Click HERE to go to the Class of '61 Obituary page to read the obituary and/or sign the guest book.

Boy, the Golden Anniversary Pacer -- March 7, 1963 -- was chock full of goodies, from the retirement of Sgt. Kaltenbach to the Colts winning CIF in basketball.  Click HERE to read all about it.

Rick Pepin '73 wonders if plans are afoot for a Class of '73 40th Reunion.   I'm not sure how he'll get the answer, since he asked to be taken off the Fry Day list.
