February 16, 2018

Some of you will enjoy this Bizarro cartoon.  Those of you not on social media may not get it.

(From Diane Bell’s UT column of February 12th)  San Diego County Clerk Ernie Dronenburg Jr. will be wearing a pink bow tie to work Wednesday — and praying that it doesn’t rain.  Valentine’s Day is traditionally “our busiest day bar none,” he says, with as many as eight wedding ceremonies being conducted simultaneously throughout the day inside the county building and outdoors in Waterfront Park.  Reservations are encouraged, but walk-ins are accepted. “Just be sure you come early,” Dronenburg cautions. The weather forecast calls for 40 percent chance of rain Wednesday afternoon. If it rains, the outdoor weddings will be re-located to rooms on a lower floor of the County Administration Building.  As many as 10 to 15 county employees volunteer to help perform ceremonies, which cost $88, plus a $70 license fee.  Last year, 108 couples exchanged vows at the county building and its four satellite offices. Even more can be accommodated, Dronenburg says. “We won’t turn anybody away.”  (PS: It didn’t rain -- and I couldn't find a photo of Ernie with a pink bow tie)

Jim Bell organized a mini-reunion of folks from Crawford, Hoover and Kearny who played baseball in 1964.  That's Jim and Mike Shannon above.

I think I've shared it before, but this photo of Cinerama showed up on Facebook this week, and I'm sharing it again.  I think I saw Rosemary's Baby here.

It is with great sadness that I inform you that our classmate and one of my closest friends Diana Wilson Longacre ‘60 has passed.  She left us on February 2nd in Clear Lake Calif -- Susan Stauffer Davenport

Our dear friend of many years Dorothy Woodward '66 passed away this past Thanksgiving evening (November 23, 2017}). She resided in Cedar Falls, Iowa. She is shown on the left in the picture below with her sister Liz Woodward '69.  We had a wonderful visit here in San Diego with them last October -- Don Christofferson '68 and Linda Skeen Christofferson '70
