Comments: Mom is dying! She contracted the dreaded and always fatal Jimmy Carter disease in 1979 and she has been in failing health ever since. Despite his best efforts, Doctor Ronald Reagan was not able to cure her. She is expected to pass on before the bell tolls in the new century. She was born on the 23rd of February 1904 in Washington, DC, being delivered by Doctor Theodore Roosevelt. She was the second child resulting from a torrid love affair between Colombia and France. She will be survived by her slightly older sister Panama. She struggled during her first few years of life but later grew to be strong, healthy and always welling to help folks from anywhere in the world. She set an example of effectiveness for all to see. She helped her sister Panama to mature and thrive in an often hostile world. Mom is loved by millions around the world and we ask that you keep her always in your hearts and in your prayers. God Bless the American Canal Zone and all who knew and loved her!

Comments: A dime used to buy me a hotdog and a pack of chiclets for lunch in the Gamboa clubhouse, although my favorite food from that era was the empanadas out of the CJHS vending machines,that I'd take a bite out and fill it up with ketchup. That was in 65. Mrs Patterson was my first Spanish teacher and I remember building human pyramids in gym, and a good round of survival with the red playground balls was always fun. Good grief "Goldfinger" was the movie of the day! Then my family moved to Balboa, and I recall stopping by the train station every day on my way home from school and Charlie, the guy who ran the little concession there would let me and my friends sit over in the station and read the comic books for free as long as we didn't bend them up or anything. Those were such care free days, and they were fun, but now I've been married for nearly twenty years and I wouldn't trade my pretty wife who also happens to be my best friend for all the CZ's.
