Nope, I went to Boot Camp there. Also A School and BEE School. Then I went to Groton for Sub School and off to Pearl Harbor. I moved back there after I got out of the Navy. I worked at the Natural History Museum in Balboa Park. I used to walk around behind rippers and dozers looking for fossils. Best job I ever had.
Speaking of critters in Balboa Park, the best one I ever saw was one day when I was actually at the museum (spent most of the time in the field), I went outside to have lunch by the fountain. There is this bum setting there and feeding pidgeons with bread he got from a trash can sandwich. He kept dropping them closer and closer till he got one up on his lap. Then he grabbed it, snapped it's little neck and shoved it in his jacket pocket and casually strolled away.
