Today half of the Lunch Bunch, the Grant Elementary School folks, are attending the Stockton, CA Edison High School 50 Year Class Reunion. It is being held at Elkhorn Country Club in Stockton.

The five of us from this 1952 class photograph of a combined fourth and fifth grade class are all going together in Ken's car. Notice the limited class size. I am not sure how Mrs Surber handled that many kids. The man in the photo is our school Principal Mr Estes.
I was the only fourth grader of the five going the other four were in the fifth grade at the time of this picture


Since both Linda and Grandma live a bit over thirty miles from Stockton now they are sharing a room a the Residence Inn about a half a mile from my home. Ken picks me up first and then waits in the car while I gather up Linda and Grandma.
Linda forgot her mirror and had to have Grandma help her with her hair


Getting in Ken's car

Next we travel the four miles to pick up Patti who lives on the route to Elkhorn.
Grandma and Patti grew up a block away from each other and have been battling like this for the past 60+ years

We manage to get to the rear parking lot.

Hash Browns with Gravy. This was a staple of our Class at Eddie's Coffee Shop in the late 1950's. We had this after football games and school dances.
