Message: OH YOUR THOSE HOODS! My great grandmother still talks about that night you folks came through their farm. So we probably are related Cuz. So we had a Q huh Branigan? Well as soon as we all get your address we'll have another one!!! I got the TP! Trying o rip on the Prince. Robin you should hang your head in shame like a dog. Here Prince Here Prince. I really do hate to encourage you Robin, but I really wish I was as funny as you. OK I forgive you guys for wolfing on the Sloeman. All this time I USED to brag about knowing Robin Hood. Tambourino and I used to make sucker bets when we were younger that we knew Robin Hood, so at three a.m. we would call your house Robin, and ask for Robin Hood. Tambo's idea Robin, the first time. Anyway SORRY I missed the party.

Hey Jim, Someone at the BBQ this weekend told this story about Robin,
It seemed that when Robin was going to El Camino, he signed up for an archery class. One day they were out on the range and one of Robin's arrows ricocheted off the target, sending it in the direction of the parking lot and right through someone's convertible top. Well being the good Cougar that he was, he left a note stating that he had done the deed and that he was sorry and all, and would take care of the damages, and of course signed it Robin Hood
I would have loved to have seen the guys face when he read the note. Thanks Jim, and if you really want to "Charminize" Sharon's place, I have the address.

My only drawback was I didnt even have Stu to sleep with and it was my tent you clowns tripped over trying to TP that house!..Bill dont tell brudder the fun he missed. He's cranky enough as it is...Oh and long as the REAL is in front my name and the MERRY is in front of his men, I see the slogan as a finalist...geeeze Slo-man really wasnt there? (really missed him?) JB make it 3 pitchers and you can count on this prince. And Ricki, it is mushy but I am impressed with "encapsulates" so you will probably win:o) Jim when my family trecked from Kansas to Hawthorne, the only stop in Nebraska was for cheap booze..You might be kin yet :o)....later Cougs

You better watch your age jokes John. Some of us aren't as kind as Mom "V".

Message: Robin send me your family tree, I think I may be the only one you are not OFFICIALLY related to in the world, yet. Well Royal you sure stirred up El Rojo. Andersen says he can still throw it as far as you can run Jake, he said to head for the dairy and he'll fake it to you. DeGrazia THE SPOT is in Hermosa Beach, didn't you want anybody else to be there? Jerry Miles I remember you! Branigan you had a barbQue without the rest of the Royal Court? R Lord were you invited, Angel, Robin and Jake? Royal flogger? (I still don't need milk!) I wasn't. And for anyone who thinks we have established a clique here, let me let you in on a little secret, none of us like John. (We love him!) Slogans we get slogans we get lots and lots of Slogans. needs no explanation, live it! Sloey
Jim, Everyone WAS there but you. Robin and Jake, thanks for making the trip. Great BBQ huh? LeeRoy, I love you babe, don't ever change. Royal and Al, you haven't changed a bit. Bill Sloey thanks for being there. Sorry Slo-bud, guess your invite got lost in the mail. Maybe next time.....

Message: Just wanted to let you all know that we didn't miss John at all this weekend -- we had him with us!! I know that we all go thru "feedback withdrawal" when he goes away for lame business trip or other unexcused absence but this weekend didn't affect me or Sister Sharon, Mom or Patty V one bit!! We did a little summer shindig of our own. And what fun it is to have the guy in your own front room! (BTW, he can be bought for a pitcher of margaritas! YOU TOO can experience the magic of the monarchy.) So while the rest of you were starving for some CT action, we were making a few memories of our own. What a blast. We even got around to TP'ing a house.....
The only drawback was having to sleep with Sue and Darryl's cat, "Stu"...... what an ANIMAL!!! Thanks Stu, for getting me up at 4:30am to play. OH... and you better make that 2 pitchers of margaritas. Thank you Sue and all the rest for the fun fun BBQ Wars weekend. HEY, and thank you all for not hurting Mikes feelings, and telling me in private, that MY tri tip won the battle of the BBQ's. I gotta thank Cheryl Nicocia for the hot tip on the Tri Tip preparation. It came out great Cheryl.

I really knew which guard you played. Now, without mine, or Robins help, you may speak your piece. By the way Mr. Lord, Steve's last name is spelled with a "sen", as in Jacob"sen". Which was the "SEN TO SEN COMBO",WHEN IT MATTERED. Royal, its fun to have this banter. Looking forward to more. And did i see my "LEFT END" partner mentioned? Big AL GEVERINK? Al, it was great to see you at the 10 yr. reunion and i'm certainly looking forward to hearing some of your tales from the "old days". I say old, because there are alot of kids on this link to the past. But back to Royal. You signed my SR annual BABY JESUS! I never said where we got the name from. All i said was that it was your "nickname". Wait a minute is this a test? EL ROJO AND ID QUEEN. p.s. Roy, congrats on the longevity of your marriage!

Message: Just want to publicly acknowledge the LOVELY redecorating job that a certain group of juvenile delinquents visited upon my humble abode this past Sabbath (how'm I doin', Joe?) Invite some over for a little BBQ and whatta I get? A house fully wrapped in (VERY EXPENSIVE) toilet paper!! (see Patty, I use the good stuff!) Well you just remember, kids, payback's an -Itch-word... My son was VERY upset, he took it as a sign of disrespect- especially since you took all the TP out of HIS bathroom! I had to explain that this is an old-timers version of affection (That's what it is, right?) Okay here's a lousy stab at slogans:
1. "Who says you can't go home again?" -
2. "Now wait a minute, buddy, ain't you heard of my school? It's number ONE in the state!" - - Be true to your school
(I always have to sing that one, for some reason...)(Guess there might be a small copyright problem there)
3. "Hey, it's good to be back home again..." - (Another copyright violation)
4. "Relive your mis-spent youth" -
5. Hawthorne- Land of Very Cool Cats -
6. First in ten, do it again! -

Sharon, Now how were we supposed to know that was Mikey's bathroom. The only thing I regret was forgetting to get a picture before leaving. Oh, and if you need some TP REEEEAL bad, I think there's about a half a roll left. We put it in your mailbox. Thanks to you all for a wonderful Kickass weekend!!! We WILL do it again, and next time I'll bring the cheap TP.

Message: It's taken me all day to catch up on two weeks of Feedback. Good thing it was a slow day at work.
It looks like it's been the incredible Royal Lord feedback machine the last few days. I never met the man, but I think I recall his name associated with my neighbor across the street - Carol Wickwire. Pretty cool name. Must be a pretty cool guy, too - just look at how the feedback lines have been filled with his name lately.
I don't think I can come up with a slogan that would be any better than Joyce Chance's - "Let friendships begun, stay true to the end."

Ingrid, Carol Wickwire Leiby is your neighbor?? She was a "MIA" at the Big Reunion. Please tell her to check in here with me RIGHT NOW!!! It's a small Cougar world folks....
Thanks Ingrid
Oh and yes Joyce, you ARE a finalist.

Royal... I can't tell you how great it was to see you check in. I was surprised to learn that you have spent the last 28 years at the Hawthorne schools. One of these days I'll get my books published. I've managed to keep a rather low profile through all the events of the past 10 years or so... and honestly... I wouldn't change anything. I've been very lucky, and have had more than most. Sometime will talk about it all. Thanks again for the hello, and be well. Robin... You really need to keep JB's crown centered, if you can. I had a surprise visit over the weekend from my step brother Harry Papagikos (class of 66) I'm sure he'll be checking in soon.
