Of course, Weight Watchers ice cream!

You probably noticed the patch over dear Bobbie Tugenberg 's right eye.  She woke up one day with weird vision and after an optometrist visit found she had a detached retina problem.  She has to be very careful for it to heal properly.  No bouncing or jogging allowed for a few weeks.

On Sunday morning January 30th, seven of us met at the Hob Nob Hill for a breakfast get together.

Yikes! We have been around longer than this ancient restaurant!

Clockwise - Fay and Denny Flanzer, Maxine, Beth & Jerry Brodkin, Doug & Karen Malewicki

Outside - great food and great prices!
(Lobster omelet was only $10.95!)

Denny & Fay Flanzer

After breakfast, Doug & Karen rode with Denny & Fay to spend a few hours in Balboa park

The commercial jets coming into San Diego's Lindberg Field have a final approach just over the tree tops of Balboa Park.  NEAT!

There was huge TET Lunar New Year Festival going on.  We could hear the drums from 3 blocks away

We also visited the International Center.  Various countries have little homes on display every Sunday. (The hand position means Malewicki is HALF Polish!)

Fay & Doug are each part Hungarian too.  Doing the hand symbol again.

Inside the Hungarian exhibit house.

Next was a tour of the San Diego Air & Space Museum.  This is a full size World War One Fokker tri-plane made famous by ace pilot Baron Manfred Von Richtofen (and, of course, by Snoopy too.)

This is full size weird Gee Bee racer that James Doolittle flew to wins before World War Two started.

Karen flying a helicopter around Balboa Park!

Denny & Doug paid extra to jump into a TIME MACHINE to go back to 1927 and meet Charles Lindbergh.

"Hey Charlie, would you like to check out some great new technology?  Come with me back to 2011 and I'll let you drive my Porsche Boxster!"

Monday January 31, 2010

On Monday morning, Doug & Karen walked a few miles to have breakfast at Ruby's at the end of Oceanside Pier - the longest wooden pier on the West Coast.

Afterwards Karen dropped Doug and his bike off.  Doug then biked 32 miles home from San Clemente to Irvine.

The end of another great SSHS class of 1957 weekend mini reunion!
