- Sam put me onto this site and I have enjoyed
reading all of the messages. Brings back muchos memorias
del pasado. I was one of the Korean vets that the
school was beginning to dislike. They were promoting
WCIM and liked the young innocentes from the midwest.
We did too! I shared an apartment in the city, first
on Calle Kant and later on Mariano Escobedo. I
remember that one of my room mates was from Coos Bay, OR.
There was also a blond guy from Ohio who ran some
buenos juegos de poker at his pad where we played till
the wee hours of the manana. I was a frequent guest
of "El Acuario" and "La Mosca" due to bad habits
that I acquired while in the service. I remember our
rum by the garofon(sp.? cost 35 pesos and a bottle of
Carta Blanca at el super was only $.04US. Donald Lent,
who drowned in Acapulco in 1960 was a room mate also
for awhile. In September while we were on break in
Acapulco, I got pneumonia and was nursed back to health at
Radomski's house. He lived with his parents, as his father
was employed locally. His father was John but I
cannot remember his first name...maybe someone can jog
my memory. I do remember the little guy in the beret
who is R.C. Gorman the famous painter and I also
remember the guy who came to school on a burro. Nice to
hear from fellow estudiantes despues tantos anos de no
oyer nada. Ron Thompson, Naples, FL
- I couldn't quite figure out the e-mail address of Tom Ford - but
perhaps he will see this message. How are Sally, Pete and Miguelito?
How is Ginny, Sally's sister?? I think she went to Bennington.
Remember June - you put a lot of indicent pre-columbian art into her
room when she visited you in Tisbury, Great Pond (Martha's Vinyard.And
what was the name of that Golden retriever who retrieved all shoes?
Whatever happened to Fernando Horcasitas?
Did Perry Duncan have a wife or girlfriend called Meghan?
