Message: In regards to the t-shirt my good friend has been in the tshirt business since 1972. I know I can get the shirts printed very cheap. I would think somewhere between $2.75 and $3.50 printed (complete) So just tell me if you need help.
Thanks Keith, but I think we have this one covered. I want you to be there on Homecoming night, as this one's going to be FUN!!!

Christine, I think Dale Hahlbeck Jr. might have the Cruise 2000 list. He's the one that's handling that show and it should be a fun one also.

Message: MMMMMmmmmm Good!!!! Think you should all try it. Gotta tell you what I did different. I did use Best Foods Mayonnaise, but..... (you know how it can be when we get to be of this age) all I had was "lite". Also, since there was some question about whether there was enough cocoa in the recipe, I doubled it. Here's the recipe for all who don't want to go backwards to find it: 3 Cups flour
1-1/2 Cups sugar
2/3 Cup cocoa (original was 1/3)
2-1/4 tsp baking powder
1-1/2 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 Cups Best Foods Mayonnaise
1-1/2 Cups water
1-1/2 tsp vanilla
Grease and flour rectangular pan. Sift dry ingredients together then add the rest. Mix until smooth and blended. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
Hey King John - watch your mail!!

UH OH!!! I smell a big hunk of Heavenly Cake coming to So Cal. Thanks Myrna for testing the cake, and now Cougs.......let's bake a few dozen.

Message: Ricki, what a great idea! Yes, Tee-shirts I love shirts ... I buy one almost every time we visit a new place .... Cougartown is a "place" so it would be fitting to have a shirt and maybe even a matching base-ball cap (I have a lot of those, too). Then even those Cougars who are far away can have a special part of the Cougartown experience to wear, even if they can't make it to all the "reunions".
I love to make forms - you might say that paperwork is my life (at least my job). I would be happy to design an order form that could be used (especially for those cougs not on e:mail. Let me know if you need any help.

There you go Ricki. Thank you Sharon, but I was saving you for the Newsletter team. OK, you can do both.

Class: '61
Message: John, at cruise night I suggested that we design some kind of a T-shirt for Cougartown folks. Have you given it anymore thought? I know that it involves more time and paperwork. I would be okay with designing it or maybe Alan H. would do it. It's more his specialty than mine. I am too busy with school work to do the paperwork and ordering stuff, but I would be glad to try some designing.
Sounds like we're really getting a good size crowd together and I think a T-shirt would be coooooool

Ricki, I would LOVE for you or Alan to do the art for the T-shirts. I was going to do it myself, but have so many irons going now. Cougartown would be honored to have our own HHSers involved. Please let me know what you have in mind and thank you for stepping up to the plate.

Class: 81
Message: So, since school starts in less than a month (I will be teaching), I stopped by the library and picked up some great literature (I mean romance novels) to peruse before the WORK begins. I opened a book by Jill Barnett, and found the following tribute in the front: (I hope you don't mind, Jill, if that's not a pen name...)

"To Dewey Weber surfboards and '57 Chevys,
Palm Springs at Easter
and cruisin' Hawthorne Boulevard,
those food fights in the cafeteria
and crooked smiles in geometry class;
to Beatles' songs and prom nights,
skiing the face of Heavenly
and still dancing the surfer's stomp.
To fast cars and old gas pumps;
the thrill of that very first marlin
and the joy of fatherhood;
to tears and touches,
snoring and really bad jokes.
To a man who knew how everything worked
because at sometime in his life
he must have taken it apart;
the same man who over all those years
showed me what love is.

May 14, 1948-February 8, 1996

I hope there are hot rods in Heaven, my love."

So I figure, if John was born in '48, he would be about class of '66. Sounds as if he may have attended Hawthorne. Did anyone know him? Thought you '60s folks might enjoy....
Hi Mandy, Yes I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. I just looked at Senior pics from 65 to 67 and nothing. Dewey Weber, 57 Chevys, and cruising Hawthorne Bl, equates to lots of schools in the area, and John could have been lots of people we all knew. Thanks for sharing it with us all.
I'm not ashamed to say it teared me RIGHT UP.

Howard, my man, I know it wasn't your fault buddy, and with your humor I am honored to be saddled with that moniker. But as for the Rowdy Girls, spreading a life long secret to all the HHS alumni, I must tell you that I know where Sandy and Sherry live, and I would be happy to let anyone in on there whereabouts. As for the rest of the girls I will have to do some searchin' but I am confident that they, too, will be located...payback is a "mother....." Hope you all enjoyed your visits...may be your last?

Message: KING JOHN,
Robin is right nobody funnier than Jim Schroeder unless it is our own Robin Hood. How many schools can say that? The Rowdy girls on their way to Del Mar I alerted security. If we had known, Robin, we could have gotten a camera, followed them around all day and made millions on that one. Let us know next time girls. And John, as Schroeder said, Karen Hare is definitely an Angel so next song up how about somethimg like Angel Eyes, or you pick. Thanks, you are the King, Karen is an Angel, Robin is a Prince, and I, a mere peasant from Nebraska, Schroeder is real funny, Kathleen is too kind or senile, my brudder is my brudder and Leeroy is........... well, Leeroy

........and a partridge in a pear tree. OK Jim, I'll hunt up an "Angel" song for Karen. Thanks man

Message: Perusing these nonpareil pages, I find that Cindy nee Laird has been posting a lot lately. If Cindy is in search of recapturing her past a la Marcel Proust, I may be just the man to link her back to those days of yore, for I sat at her table in Honor's Math I our freshman year. At said table it was my privilege to listen to Cindy recount, Scheherezad-like, many diversionary tales, utterly unrelated to even basic algebra, as she and Rhonda Cooper exchanged info on their social calendar nearly every morning. I was particularly in awe of Cindy's social calendar (for she had one; I of course did not). And then, later in the day, I would trot off to Latin (from whence I undoubtably, even haplessly, derived my sesquipedalian nature) and in that class I would hear Wade Greasby and Gene Skulik, both seniors, discuss their own social calendars. Indeed, there was much overlap between these two sets of information, one from the female perspective which came to me early in the day, and the other from the analogous male point of view, which enjoyed the benefit of coming later. Yes, Cindy knew and even hung out with seniors as a freshman; I, alas, merely feared them. But these stories were worth their weight in red&gold easily, and I immensely enjoyed hearing two sides of the same coin. Sidebar: the fourth at this illustrious table was one John Liang, a fellow who later became a doctor. At the time of our first acquaintence I presumed that he did not speak English very well. But I later remade his acquaintence at UCLA and we carpooled for a time; and it turned out Mr. Liang, now Dr. Liang, was playing possum with our language, which he knew at least as well as...say, Donald Hoy. And in subsequent summers I would get marvellous letters from Dr. Liang from Hong Kong or Taiwan, often in monsoon season and liberally sprinkled with both blurring raindrops and frustrating intrusions of Chinese ideograms in places where I would have much liked to read but could not.
God, I wish I could do that. I've heard of painting by numbers, but never by letters. Hey Joseph, I don't know what sesquipedalian nature means, but you sure use them BIG words all the time. Thanks Joe, I LOVE YOU MAAAN!!!

Message: Hi John...I just this minute got a cell phone call from 3 of the Rowdy Girls, who were hauling the mail down I-5 to Del Mar to meet up with some old (ok matured) friends. Not a lot of conversation as the battery was going dead, they couldnt decide who should steer, step on the gas or talk. They do have a request though that I will forward, you being the Grand Pooba and all..They would like (being they have to memorize and execute all the cheers at homecoming) to have the Stick and Stein gig be known simply as the "After Game Dance". Traditionalists that they are, this fits more in the realm of the Gunga Din days, when whoever you danced with looked good, as it was so dark. Im just the messenger here...Sloey ..We might as well hang up our keyboards with Schroeder on board...Between Jim and Stevie there are enough HHS stories to last long past Y2K...Becky and Karen are only the beginning.... I see an online Ricky Martin concert here :o) Karen, until you have seen Steve singing "Mack the Knife" on a frisbee golf aint seen nuttin...(Ill send some pics :o) As for Fish, Blackburn and Mazzotta...If they can stop Terrys perpetual laugh, he might be able to board a plane...Good to see you onboard Jim...and give my best to the Bandon beauty Ann :o) Later Cougs...
Thanks Robin, and if you've got a volt left in that cell phone, tell the "R" Girls that I just talked to George, the owner, and he said he'll keep turning the lights down until ALL the Early 60's and under crowd, looks good. Actually there might be a security problem at 9 candlepower, but we'll let George worry about that.
Thanks Robin, and be a Coug'...........

It's hard to believe that all those years have gone by, when most of us still feel like it was just yesterday. Also it is good to see that there are still some of us who have been together since High School.

Message: Cheryl - thank you soooooo much. I have made a royal determination regarding the called-for flogging. After listening to both songs. I order King JB to be flogged 14 times with the stuffing of the royal drapery cord for not posting a disclaimer prior to anyone listening to these songs. Now, to be very honest. I listened to these songs with an open mind (very, very, open) and decided that if I wanted to be hard-nosed I could be offended, but because I like to live my life with as much fun in it as I can (there are serious things that have no option, you see), I chose to enjoy these songs (especially the man-song) and I, like King John, consider them both funny!!!!! P.S. John, thanks for the download info - I now have the real player and I can enjoy the additional entertainment of your wonderful site! I'm NOT going to be flogged with the stuffing from the Royal drapery cord?? It sounded "so kinda kinky" coming from you Myrn'Oh well, thank you for siding with me in the end.
I'm also glad that you've gotten Real Audio hooked up and running on your machine. Now you can go back through the Feedback pages and play all the songs you've missed (yes, they're still there). Thanks Myrna . . . . .

Message: Reality check...
Class of 1974 must have using that "new math". David Barboza I think you need to go back and look at the price of the seats. As far as I can see the "Green Phantom" is only 60% of the way toward having a seat dedicated to its name. I am glad to see that Bill Ashdown has contributed toward Dr Fred Morgan. Mr. Morgan (as we knew him) spent so much time with the youth of Hawthorne and this, I feel, is a fitting return of their gratitude and a way to say "thank you" for all your efforts. I thought that the drama classes would be kicking in their $10 toward getting "Billy" Nyman Halls Ghost, his seat. I used to play "hide and seek" around Nyman Hall and sometimes it got pretty spooky. I also enjoyed watching the drama productions when I went to HHS. John, my sister Patt and I have already contributed toward 3 seats but I will be sending in another $10 for "Billy".

Hi Chris, Yes, Thank you for your generosity. I will add you to the "Billy" seat. Really folks, if you'd like to add a full seat in yours or a loved ones name, or a part of a seat to one of the above names, to Nyman Hall, please don't hesitate. This is a very worthwhile cause and unlike other fund raisers, 100% of your money goes to the project.

Hey Dewey, Now that's the spirit, I will do just that. The Green Phantom, this time, is going to be a PERMANENT part of Nyman Hall. Thanks Dewey, Beverly, Sharon, Kathleen, and the Barboza Family, for making this seat a reality.
