Remember Going to this place
See, the real reason boys took girls to the Drive Inn...was the prices of the food!
A day filled with memories.....
Thanksgiving Day 1961. Clearwater won the game, but boy did we have fun! Check out the cute cheerleader in front
Jim Jerele catches the big one ....fishing on Sarasota Bay
Good going Jim!
Should I or maybe not...go into A Wing?
May, 1961 10th grader Sandy Parson wonders what it will be like as a Junior at old Largo High. What a really nice person she is!
OK, how good is your memory...these are pictures of you, maybe not you, but your classmates. These pictures were taken in the Fall of 1960, yup can you believe 57 years ago. See an old girlfriend or boyfriend here? If you can guess right on everyone let me know.
Our Longtime Buddy, Dana
Following four stories from the May 28, 1963
Largo Hi Times
See the Dietz Sunoco Ad....That was Nancy Dietz's Dad...can you just imagine seeing the really cute Nancy out pumping gas and giving away green stamps.
Man, I would have gone by and purchased .50 worth every other day...to have Nancy wait on me. ha ha
Kathy Jett coming home from work on Saturday was hit by another car. Kathy's car had a lot of damage, but Kathy came away unhurt, Thank God. Your prayers are always appreciated for both Kathy and Harry.
The cold weather made it to Largo on Saturday and Sunday, Jauuary 7th and 8th. Cold for Largo that is....40 degrees on Saturday AM, 34 degrees on Sunday AM and they say it will be near 37 degrees on Monday....80 by next Friday.
"When I Grow to Old to Dream, I'll Still Remember YOU"
Can you belive it, the year 2017! Sounds like something out of a Saturday morning cartoon at the Largo Theatre in 1954. Do you remember Mr. Thrall, the Manager at the time...and his beautiful young Daughter Barb Thrall...Barb always told her Dad when I was throwing those little pibbles on the tin roof of the theatre...oh well, just another day in trouble.
This morning the maid was here at the house, so I left and took a drive...first to McDonalds for breakfast...so good, orange juice, coffee, black, hot and strong! ..Good way to start a Largo day. When finished off on my adventure for the day....first to the back...needed some $$$$. Drove down to the Belleair Causeway, parked and watched the boats load and unload ....while I finished my coffee. Believe me the causeway is nothing like it was when we were kids. After working on Friday nights at Publix we would take the butcher into giving us a bucket of blood and meat trash....take it to the causeway, swim out and dumb it....didn't take long for the sharks to come....bunch of us actually caught a Hammerhead shark about 8 feet long one night....to forever to land it.
Leaving the causeway I went west over the bridges and onto Belleair Beach, made a left turn heading south now to Indian Rocks Beach. Boy has that place changed. Went by the old West Pinellas Little League Feild befory continuing south to the Walsingam Bridge and back to Largo. Before long, I passed the oldest public school in Pinellas County, Anona School, first built in 1872 and still going. And that was my big adventure for the day.
Now for some very good news....my lifelong buddie and our classmate Jim McGee is much better! Jim had a full dinner on New Years day...and will be attending the Largo Historical Society Meeting on January 9. Good going Jim, keep it up!
ONE OF THESE DAYS!
Yes, one of these days the LHS Class of 1963 will have more members attend the annual CRACKER SUPPER and take the trophy away from that bunch of LHS 1962. This year the Supper is on Saturday March 11th at 5:30 PM in Largo. Watch for announcements.

Proud to be a PACKER!
