Need I say more?

Crawford Soccer Coach Chassion Griggs reminds me that it was a year ago -- May 2, 2016 to be exact -- that we were able to send some Colts to College.  Click HERE to get the details -- and maybe donate again.

A series of photos resurfaced on Greg May's Vintage San Diego Facebook page showing President Truman's visit to San Diego on September 24, 1948.  This one looks east on Washington and San Diego Avenue, at what we used to call Five Points.   The tower at the right is the old Palomar Laundry.  I'm sharing this to see if anyone remembers the wonderful miniature golf course that, I believe, was taken away when they built I-5.

When did San Diego dairies quit making home deliveries?  The question came up on a local Facebook page and Owen Western '63 weighed in.  Click HERE to see the document he presented to the jury.

Here's an ad for "Sign of the Sun" from 1966.  I gather it was a coffee house at 4701 College Avenue. Click HERE for a nice enlargement.
