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!
Hey joe, Now, not only do we have the categories; Cougar Sighting and Ghost Cougar Sighting, but NON-Cougar Sighting. Thanks for the inner-city report and on the topic of vocational know how I feel about that subject so no need to go any furtherI LOVE YOU TOO MAAAANN!!!

Message: Hey John, just much is the pancake breakfast going for these days? I remember when they use to sell tickets $2.00
Hi Jessie, I have no idea but will guess it's more than 2 dollars. I would suggest that since all proceeds are going to our football program, and if you can afford it, please drop a little extra into the pot. It's all for a good cause....

Message: Hi John.. I just visited your old Alma Mater. I am a Brian Wilson fan He was class of 1959. I was on vacation in Southern Cal and dropped by your old school.. Do you have any idea when it was built? It seemed to resemble a military installation. Do you have any idea if there was anything before a school? Just wondering
Hi David, Yes the school was built between 1949 and 1951. First graduation class was 1954. Hawthorne and Morningside High Schools were built about the same time and have the sam block wall construction. In to 1920s there was an airport in this approximate spot (Kelley Field). After the airfield it was probably bean fields as Hawthorne in the early 20th century was mostly farming and agriculture. Thanks for asking. Brian, by the way, was class of 1960.

Message: Oooohhhh - Furlough Friday and the State Fair is on in Sacto? AND, it's Labor Day weekend?? Hey Baker - wanna take a road trip and sneak up on the Sacto Cougars? We'll call it a Cougar Boo! 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.
Kinda hard to sneak up on 'em when you just told everyone on the planet

Message: Well today I turned old but I feel great! My oldest son and his beautiful wife, BEthlyn, had their first Child, Christian Jarmilla Sloey at 4:13pm in Newberry Park California. 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.
Hey man, Congratulations to you, Debby, and the rest of the clan. When my first grandson was born I just knew he was born to be a pole vaulter.

City & State: Templeton, California
Message: 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 for times and places. Class of '74 lets get a reunion together for 35.
Hey Greg, No Coug sighting but still nice to have the offspring around. Thanks for the heads up.

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.
You're right, I totally missed that one. Thanks Matt and if I come up to Sacto, don't report it to anyone, and bump into you guys at the fairgrounds, is that a Cougar Sighting?
