Reminiscing Room entries for October 1999
- according to my l959 Telephone Directory, Applewhite Garage & Machine Shop was located at 1420 Lincoln.He
had a machine that could turn the rod journals on a crankshaft while it was still in your car. (info for motor heads) That is still unique, in my opinion.

Sarah Uribe...Interesting to read you tale of the earthquake in El Salvasor...I remember the day well...I was living in San Pedro Sula Honduras and was flying SAHSA (Servicio Aereo Hondureno Sin Alas)DC3 to Nuevo Ocotepeque when the pilot called me up to the cockpit to tell me he
was going to over fly ocotepeque as he
had a cargo of fresh meat and wanted to go to el Salvador...I stayed in the cockpit and when we got over Salvador there was steam rising from the barrancos around the airport and we couldn't raise the tower on the radio...Sahsa never played by the rules so we landed anyway...the ground crew came running out diciendo que habia un terremoto y lo habia corriente...so we turned around and took off..meat and all...I cant remember the year either but figure 65 or 66 to be right...funny we never crossed paths in central america...I spent 18 years between Honduras and Guatemala... Were you living in El Salvador 19 1969 for the war with honduras?I was in guate for the earthquake in 76...and am looking down the barril of Hurricane Jose who is supposed to arrive here in the Virgin Islands...I wonder if he
is the Jose in our class at Martin?
Thanks, SarahSarah Uribe
