School Story

Favorite activity was the great dances at the Junior High Auditorium. Shakin' a Tailfeather to the great bands that played there. Summers at Center Beach in the early-mid 60's were EPIC! Marilyn Monroe at the Del in "Some Like It Hot". Day & Night Market, Bob's Drive In, Free Bros. Market, Oscars Drive In, Perkins Bookworm, Lou Villar's Spanish Class with John Little and a thousand Batman imitations, smooching girls, riding the Ferry, seemingly endless summers. How incredibly lucky we were...

What a great night we had at our 50th reunion. I still have a big smile on my face. Thanks and kudos to the reunion committee for doing such a great job! The website Teddi set up for us all just set the tone for such a special occasion. And then the decorations were over the top fantastic! Special kudos to Julie. All you guys really outdid yourselves. I can't wait for the next one. Maybe the theme should be the "I can't Drive 55" Reunion!!

DIck was quite the character and a tall drink of water. We spent a lot of time at his house in our younger days and his mom was the best. We would walk into his house on 3rd St. and she would always feed us! Fantastic Italian cooking and the best 'drenched in butter' garlic bread ever. We had the idyllic 'growing up in Coronado back in the day' experience and Dick was a hoot. Quite a life he lived (not for the sqeamish) but a better and truer friend you would never find. Smooth sailing my friend...

'Gyro' was my best friend growing up and the very best friend a guy could ever ask for. We spent our youth fishing all around the island, summers at the beach, flying line-controlled Lil' Satan gas engine airplanes that we built ourselves from balsa wood and paper. We would swipe liquor from our parent's bars, taking a little from each bottle and put it all in a mason jar and drink it at the beach. No mixers but hey we were young and forced it down. Steve would even help me deliver my paper route and more than once did it before I woke up. Then he would wake me up shaking me hard and telling me I was late and needed to get going! Then when I went out to the sidewalk and there were no papers he would say "I already delivered them - let's go fishing! A true friend. Never thought of himself 1st. I will always cherish those days and my best friend Gyro. I was so lucky to have him for my pal during those wonderful days on the island. Thanks Gyro! You are the best!!
