The views of San Diego were more spectacular than actually touring the ballpark. For example, here’s a picture of the two-year-old Skybridge that connects the Hilton Bayfront and the San Diego Convention Center with Petco Park and the 9-month-old San Diego Central Library:

Speaking of Tom T. Hall, one day in 1968 I got in trouble at school. The principal called my wise old grandmother to come get me. Playing on the radio on the drive home was “Harper Valley P.T.A.” by Jeannie C. Riley, written by Tom T. Hall.

    I love that song “Dead Man’s Party!” Heck, I love Oingo Boingo! I saw them back in 1979 at Harrah’s in Tahoe at the Caberet Lounge. They came out wearing Explorer outfits and it was very entertaining! Have a lovely day and be well! Hugs to you and Jim! J
