August 1, 2014

UESS WHO NANCY AND I MET last night at the Amigo Spot.  Barbara Zaitzow, that’s who.   She and her husband were fresh off the plane from North Carolina, in town for the Class of ‘74 reunion.  She was of the opinion that San Diego was a lot hotter and muggier than North Carolina.  Nancy and I should have got a room, ‘cause I suspect we’re headed back to the King’s Inn this morning for a late breakfast at the Waffle Spot.

Next Thursday is First Thursday at the Amigo Spot.  Members of the Class of ‘59 may or may not be in attendance to check it out as a venue for the 55th Anniversary of their Graduation.  Nancy and I will be there for the food (Oh, the irony — the Amigo Spot has one of the best burger and fries combos I know of) and to hear Paul Caston on the guitar.

Did you happen to watch the 2014 Baseball Hall of Fame induction on MLB?  Tony LaRussa’s induction was preceded by a nice video talk from Dave Duncan ‘63.   Click HERE if you'd like to watch it.  Make sure you're sitting down -- Dave's grown a goatee.

Bob Mardon ‘64 is getting rid of his Horace Mann Cougars from 1959, 1960, and 1961 (I put up Bob Richardson's 1958 Cougar just to get your attention).  If you’d like them, contact him at 619-461-1677 or

Friends for over 50 years, and 1964 classmates, Janie Newberry Smith, Meri Pierce Knight and Laurie Koosed Ratner celebrate Meri’s birthday on July 18th at the home of Janis Irvine Ricards.  I’m pretty sure Janis prepared the meal — and took the photo.  Click HERE to find out what they’re eating and view a much larger photo.

Phillis Dudick ‘60 let me know last week that her sister, Mary Ellen Dudick Cagan ‘68 (above), passed away April 11, 2001.
