Message: Hey John, as it is a summer of sightings, I feel obliged to report that I have not had a Cougar sighting here in the Inner City since the nee-Biermans tried to drown us in mid-day wine well over a year ago. Whilst you live and re-live your endless summer of love, I've been tulmultuously toiling on endeavours that will either prove barren or merely document the degree to which I've so comfortably accommodated myself to vocational solipcism. But thank you for spreading the Cougar rays of light even into the bleak 900-zipcodes of LA and know I LOVE YOU MMMMMAAAANNN!

Sighting...I'll bet Anita would let us crash at her place....Darryl is planning on being in San Antonio to see his nephew's last few AA games with the Padres org. and he'd be ok with that. Didn't you folks all meet up at the fair a few years back when the Beach Boys played?? Three Dog Night was my very first concert. I was a freshman and Cindy Young and I double dated with Mikes, Colbern and Scott. Flash from the past....oh, and Greg, 35th is a great idea.

He is already reciting the alphabet backwards and can dunk a basketball standing still under the rim, backwards! I won't even bore you with how far he can already hit a baseball. Anyway Debby and I are beyond thrilled, so is his Grandma Judi Storie who has been camped out at the hospital since November, just kidding Judi. It's a great day for all of us. 3 more to go. And I only answer to Grandpa Jimmy-geez am I old or what.

Message: Hey...do offspring of Cougars count as a sighting. Tonight the Goode family will be visited by Dan and Joan Forbess' sons, Blake and Trevor. They are crashing at the Goode pad because they have a couple of 'gigs' (I love that word because it makes me sound like I'm part of the music industry) in San Luis Obispo this Friday and then traveling down your way in West Hollywood, Redondo Beach and Huntington Beach. The band is called Volifonix out of Eugene, Oregon and I'll bet they wouldn't mind some Cougs showing up and giving some support. Check out their sight on www.myspace.com/volifonix
for times and places. Class of '74 lets get a reunion together for 35.

Bob he said to tell you hello.

Message: Patty sees Janice at Costco but does not get the Cougar sighting emblem? I hope Patty is not too traumatized. Now if you meet or talk to a Cougar and do not know the person is a Cougar then it is a ghost Cougar sighting. But if you do not know the person is a Cougar then how do you know to report it. I am sooooo confused. LOL
John we give you a hard time regarding these Cougar sighting because we love you and CT. CT has brought many people together. Like Sue said any Cougar sighting is good. Should we have a new category-planned Cougar sighting? I have a planned Cougar sighting on September 4th when some of us are going to the State fair to see Three Dog Night. Sue it is a furlough Friday so come on up. Everyone is welcome.
