December 27, 2019

I snagged this off of Lulu Summers' Facebook page.  Who knew it would end up hitting a little close to home at La Casa Frito?  (That's Spanish for The Fry Home)

Sharon Cramer Sceper '68 forwarded this photo, I think taken at a Denny's.

The grandchildren of my classmate Bernadine Berlin Temple don't go "over the river and through the woods to grandmother's house" for the holidays.  Grandmother comes to them on the back of a Harley.  Here she is getting ready to leave the grandkids' house in San Jose for the return trip home to Hayward.

Did you ever go the the Coliseum in downtown San Diego?  Me neither.  It was owned by the Navarro family and I'm wondering if it became Jerome's Furniture.  Last week marked 40 years since the venue was shut down.  The Union-Tribune published an article written by Wayne Lockwood at the time.  Wayne wrote great pieces, always fun, about the history of San Diego.  Click HERE to read this one.

This classic color shot of the Twin Inns in Carlsbad popped up on Facebook this week and I had to share it.  Click HERE to see an enlargement, a little information, and a postcard showing the chicken statues that used to be out in front.
