Message: Hey Cougs, at the Signal Hill car show, put on by the Sultans Car Club, I sighted a fellow Cougar in the next row from where my car was sitting, his name was Bob Stevenson, we had a good chat and he was with a nice group, may have been Cougs? may be a ghost sighting.
Also met Tommy Johnson C/O 58, Glenda Morton/Wilson C/O 58, Jimmy Morton C/O 57, Terry Morton C/O 59, Bill Blocker LHS C/O 57, was all prearranged so no Cougar sighting. See everyone at Fosters on the 21st. Later Don

Message: Sighting, schmiting, I don't care WHAT you do or don't call it Baker Man, anytime ANY of us hooks up with another Cougar, it's ALL GOOD. And when I miss out on one, like the shindig a couple of weeks ago at Matt Peterson's, I feel like I've had a missed opportunity. I'm not sure just how and when the whole "Cougar Sighting" thing evolved, or when there were rules attached to it but, I hope any rules would never deter or diminish the fun and joy of any Cougar connection. For instance, it's ALWAYS wonderful when we get together with you, usually planned but you're always quite a "sighting" for sore eyes. XOXO : )) Carry on.

Message: I sighted two Cougars this past weekend. It would have been a Cougar-sighting but I invited Gloria and John Achrem so I knew that I would be sighting them. Ditto on the lunch a couple of weeks ago with Konnie and Sharon. Now I'm very curious as to whether I've had any Ghost Cougar sightings. I did run into Janice Dorman at Costco. Hey that's a Cougar sighting.

Message: Russ great to see Royal - Now that is a Cougar sighting- Good job taking an actual photo of the event- whether planned or spontaneous, it is nice to see the ?action?-I knew Royal?s Pappy Mr. Bill Lord , the purveyor of Nyman Hall. Bill Lord was the invisible glue that held together all the ?drama & stage productions? , as he ruled all the engineering duties back stage ? Mr. Fix spoke very highly of Bill Lord , and called him his ?right hand man? , ..?I couldn?t have done all those plays if it hadn?t been for Bill Lord..? ? to quote Danny Fix- Russ, tell Royal we said hello! ? ummm John ? my eyes are getting really bad- the ?Birthday Scroll? at the top of the page is completely way too tiny- can you pop it up one pica or two???

Message: John, you are really tough on those Cougar sightings. I really don't understand why you said that it wasn't a chance meeting for Bob Stevenson and Don Burns. As far as I could tell from the posting, these two people hadn't arranged to meet at the car show. He even said that it was nice meeting Don at the end of his post. Don't you think you should lighten up a little on these Cougar sighting things? It's your call, but I wouldn't have hesitated in calling that a Cougar sighting. Guess I need to get a life if this is all I have to say. Anyway, a good summer to all Hawthorne alumni! Jim Peppers

Humor, love and respect, are just a few words that come to mind when I think of Charlie. He was always under the radar with a quick wit and a smile.
