I figured I'd go there and sack out, and nobody would be able to find me right away. And I'd have the perfect excuse - I was ordered to do such and such.

i've heard of the Duluth... of course. lol.
and you are funny with your WANTING to go on a hunt. laugh i just left sometimes saying i was gunna go look for something or work in another space and ended up hangin' out with my FC buddies in their space. i would be there chattin' for an hour before remembering i had work to do. whistle

Anyway, as I drove kids to various activities in San Diego and LA, I had talked about snipe hunts. And the kids learned real quick that it was a scam. Most people you can laugh, and then get serious and pretend that your laughter meant nothing, and get them at least half-believing again.
Not so these kids. They pretended to believe, but on a beach trip to Mission Beach, some of them (near time to go) wanted to go on a coeducational snipe hunt down the beach. I said, NO! Get in the bus. I wasn't born yesterday.

i know of all the places you are talkin about here. cool i use to live right across the street behind the sheriffs dept. right now i live next to lemon grove. how ironic. i am sure you are familiar with college ave and federal. off the 94 freeway?... but i live right on the other side of the freeway from lemon grove. i live in military housing that has only been here for about 12 yrs now. behind the College Grove shopping center, WalMart, Longs, and Mervyn's which is closed now??... you familiar?
wow, you drove a lot. must have been fun with all those kids. haha, for kids being kids at the beach...

Sorry, PDM. This is the last. I lived in Lomita Village from '72 through '75, then came back after seminary in '79-'80.

My present wife, Marge, and I stayed in an apartment in La Jolla Colony and she had a travel-nursing contract in Encinitas.

Quite a move up from the house I had before (but which had tripled in value while I was in seminary. Too bad I didn't hold on to it, but we needed the money for school, and we bought the house we were in at Kentucky).

When I worked at KECR-FM, the weather was always about the same, and I've always thought San Diego weather the best in the U.S. Marge thought it was too cool, though, and didn't like it much (but we were there from the end of 12/02 to 3/03).

I am kind of familiar with the areas you mention, but I saw when we were there last that it has changed a lot, and it took me some time to get reacquainted, and we went to new places (Tiajuana, Rosarito, Old Town). An interview of Marge and me by TV sports was aired on the Evening news there 3 times one night before the Super Bowl (3 different segments). We had been at the Hotel at Torrey Pines to see the Bucs players (we still have season tickets, but my stepson & his wife now pay for them and use them).


Marge is the love of my life.

I'm sorry if it bothered you. Just an old man's ramblings. I suppose the details of where I went to church and worked were a bit much. Got a bit excited talking to someone who lives there.


Marge is the love of my life.

I'll start since I am leaving tomorrow morning for Daytona Beach. A whole week of nothing but walking my dog on the beach, reading and generally laying around on the beach.

That is my favorite vacation except I would rather be at Destin Beach
