moved -- or just have fond memories of San Diego in the '40s, '50s and '60s.

February 6, 2014

I DON'T KNOW HOW they're doing at the Farmer's Insurance Golf Tournament in Torrey Pines, but the fog has lifted in Pacific Beach and it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day.  I'm hoping to talk Nancy into breakfast at the Landing Grille, formerly the Kruse Galley, on the bay near Islandia.

Here are the items I posted on Facebook this past week.

Steve Haiman '62, insisting he's not just another pretty face, wants folks to know he'll be appearing in "Into The Woods" as a member of the Pickwick Players.  He plays a character known as the  "Mysterious Man", which -- he notes -- shouldn't surprise his friends.   The venue is the Off Broadway Theater located on Cuyamaca Street in Santee (sharing the Food-4-Less parking lot).  The play runs from February 20 through March 1st.  Steve is certain the play will sell out quickly and hopes you will get your tickets early.  EMAIL Steve with questions or just go to the Pickwick Players web site.

I've just updated some of the first photos I ever uploaded to my Crawford High web site, loaned to me by Mary Jo Schmith Grubb '62 from her time at John Muir Elementary.  Click HERE to see three photos of musical groups.  Click HERE to see class photos from Kindergarten through 5th grade.

Paul Wright died January 20, 2014.  He was born in Coshocton Ohio. In 1950 he left for South Carolina to attend Central Wesleyan College where he fell in love with Betty Lou Henderson, his wife of 63 years. With the start of the Korean War, Paul enlisted in the U.S. Navy, serving 4 years on the Rendova and Bon Homme Richard aircraft carriers. From 1960 to 1996 Paul taught Physics and Chemistry at Crawford, starting the Advanced Science Program for San Diego County. When not in a classroom, you could usually see him digging in his garden, repairing one of his rental houses, or involved in a construction project at his church.
