As a foot note to the poster , I thought I’d enter the comments by “Our Gang”
We had the real Mel’s drive in!! These were fun pictures. Yes, I remember that junior sneak. San Gregorio beach. Lots of you!! I also know I was one of the drips in Drop the Drip. Kept bumping my elbows when I would get dunked. I loved it though for some reason. Didn’t we have the cool cars though? and who is that scary Hunchback at senior costume day?
The scary hunchback is the inimitable Ed Aweeka! I was in the homemade Drop the Drip as well. Hit the bottom a couple of times. I’m certain the safety police would ban that today.
Great pictures! Thanks as well to Bart!
Best to all,
Just for the record, I think I should come clean. I found out later from Mr. Aweeka himself who told me it was him. I was just playing around, instigating what I hoped would be fun here.
During the actual senior costume day, during which (oy! did I say this already!? on another message? I hope not!) Sharon Brantley’s mom rented a few flapper costumes for us. How grand!
Anyhow, I personally continued to ask the hunchback during the day Who are you? He really pulled it off!!
Love to all!!
During Senior Costume Day, I and two others, I do not remember who (does anyone remember?), were the Nairobi Trio (anybody remember them? Think Ernie Kovacs).
Nobody could figure out who we were.
I also offer love to all!
Your e-mails are sure fun!!! After yours, Burt, I had to get out the old yearbook and try to find you on Senior Costume Day but no such luck. I did find you near sports with (I think) Joanne Briggs. Egad. The guys on the golf team look like something out of “Grease”—-or did they do a great imitation of US?????? We were sooooo cool…. Love, Sharon Kracke Moore
Marylou- Go to the picnic no matter what. I wish I could be there. But geography and finances make it impossible. So go have fun for me. We will be in CA but not til middle of July. My 70th has come and gone and it isn’t so bad. Aside from a few aches and pains I am doing great. It is fun to hear from and recognize you all from your bantering back and forth. Some things never change. I wish you all a wonderful rest of the week. love, joan blackmore wright

I knew it had to be you. I recently asked Ed Aweeka but he says not him. Hmmm. My second guess would be Bill Geis but no third here. I have been wondering this for years, apparently along with others, including the apparent instigator.
Amazing to look back and understand we had CAL TJADER come to our school and do a concert!!
Cal Tjader! Now that was back in the days when high school kids thought jazz was cool! That sure changed, didn’t it? Me, Burt, Gary Howe & Gene “Gordo” Gordon had a jazz combo during senior year, and we HATED rock ‘n roll, swore it would NEVER take off. Oh well……
