After graduation, wanting to get out of SA as soon as possible. That was me and now am back here after 33 years. (said I'd never do it!) I remember some things, but forget more. Cutting class and going over to the park on the south side, Name??, I can't remember. To neck, pet, smoke and do all the other "bad things"!

Free pizza and sodas at Shakey's when we, the newspaper staff was supposed to be selling ads during last period class.. we did.. to Shakey's.  Parking off to the right off Knickerbocker on the way to the lake near the little ponds, no man's land. Now there's apartments and fast food places as far as you can see. We thought we could never get caught. Did You? I did.
