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.

September 11, 2015

WHY AM I HAVING DREAMS about my babyhood in Florida and the year I spent in Guam?  Oh, maybe because it's unbelievably hot and muggy in Pacific Beach.  Well, the Waffle Spot is air-conditioned.  Nancy and I went last Fry Day and were excited to see that the lobby was finally open. Too bad it was a 35 minute wait to be seated.  We went next door to Albie's Steak and Eggs.  Last time this happened we didn't find parking until we reached Brother's Restaurant on Waring Road.

Crawford scored 25 unanswered points in the 4th quarter to beat Escondido Classical Academy 32-19 last Friday and are now 2-0.  They'll play Kearny at Kearny tonight at 6:30 PM

Susan Marshall Gordon is looking for convertibles for the Homecoming Game to be played Friday, October 16 at 6:30 PM vs Holtville.  Because Crawford's field is still under construction, the game will be played at Lincoln's (almost) new facility.  Call or text Susan at 619-865-3410 or click on her underlined name to email her.

Speaking of snazzy cars, John Ramsey '60 has written an article entitled Three Porsches In My Life for 912 Registry Magazine.

Greg May posted this photo to the Streetcars Album of his Vintage San Diego Facebook page.  He says it was taken June 1, 1948, which he may have deduced from the Rodeo advertisement on the front.  It's the #7 car headed west on University Avenue, leaving the Tower Bar and Euclid Avenue in its wake.

Turns out Greg May even has a Chicken Pie Shop Album on his Facebook page.  Gives me an excuse to show the photo Nancy took of the Utility Box Artwork outside the current Chicken Pie Shop.  That chicken looks to me like he's biding his time before taking his revenge.  Click HERE if you'd like to look at some more Utility Box Artwork.

Services for Harry Longdon ’65 will be held at 3 pm Saturday, September 12th, in the chapel at City View Church, 8404 Phyllis Place, San Diego, CA 92123.  He succumbed to adult leukemia on August 26, 2015.  A celebration of his life will follow at the home of his long-time friend Rick Bonnett in Serra Mesa.   Click HERE to read the complete obituary.
