September 19, 2014

IT’S DARK AND — FINALLY — COOLING OFF in Pacific Beach.  Remember last week how I thought we’d stay near the ocean.  I decided it would be cooler to drive to Pine Valley and have breakfast at Major’s Coffee Shop.  We were air conditioned for a couple of hours at least.  I imagine we’ll hit the Waffle Spot tomorrow, now that the Summer visitors have gone.

Last week’s photo of San Diego State brought back a special memory for Bob Richardson ‘61.  You can read it HERE.

Peggy Workman Welch’s query about Dennstedt Village brought an outpouring of memories and some squiggly Google photos from Richard Cone.  Click HERE to check them out.

Doug Kvandal ‘66 says the sketch artist did a great job capturing my likeness — except for the fact that I appear to be smiling.

Jerry Fogel ‘64 would like folks to know that he has a rock band — Takillya -- that does covers of Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Santana.  “You get the picture,” says Jerry.  The photo above shows the band performing at the Chico Club, 7366 El Cajon Blvd.  Jerry says they love to play and don’t charge much.   Click HERE to email him or call him at 619-669-1935 or 619-977-1935  Don’t call him this weekend — he’s at the Class of ‘64 Reunion.

What are YOU doing the rest of the weekend?  Don Anderson ‘64 will be racing his Bobsy-Porsche in Group 7 at the Coronado Speed Festival.  When he’s not on the track he’ll be receiving guests at Paddock Space F-1.  If you miss him there you can catch up with him at the Class of ‘64 Reunion Saturday night.  I’m getting tired just writing about it. Maybe I’ll take a nap.  Click HERE if you want more information on the Coronado Speed Festival.

Hold on to your hats!!  If you graduated in 1965 you’re going to be reminded on a regular basis that it was 50 YEARS AGO!!  The initial Golden Anniversary Pacer dates from September 17, 1964.  Bob Boone and Maria Long were the initial Senior Sketches.  Click HERE to read more!!

Glynn Curry ‘71 passed away September 5th.  He is survived by siblings Phyllis Curry Mann ‘65 and Dennis Curry ‘69.
