Message:As for the recent and uniquely irritating suggestions that I might also be employing the altogether tedious monikers of Leroy, Royal, or any other weary doppelganger cyberids, suffice it to say that I am to my discredit far too egotistical to permit something I have seen fit to write stand at this or any other website with an attribution of any name other than my true given one. While I am on the subject of identity, however, have I ever told you about the time I discovered that Ted's felt it necessary to claim that he had never even heard of Mario Estolano? Ah, but that involved, convoluted, and altogether engrossing tale is for another day... Gioia to his credit is also correct in asserting that I have never been near a Beulah, nor for that matter any woman whose cognomen we might more likely attribute to a demimonde than a debutante. Which somehow brings to mind a slogan, not just for this website but for many: Cougartown dotcom--You can't blame the flame if the moth flies too close. --joseph et al. :
OK.... ready, set, everyone to your F&W's. The first one back with the answer to whatever the hell Joe just said gets a free T-shirt.
Hey Joe, I like the last line. It's the only one I understand.......I think.

Ricki aka V1 do you remember Kelly? Robin I really enjoyed the El Camino archery class story. I'm sure you could do volumes on those kinds of incidents. JB...a question for the Royal Baker. Does the cake need a butter cream fosting or will a simple ganache work? JB. Would a slogan page be a pain?
Frank, I had it with a frosting, and without a frosting. It's good either way.
Butter cream frosting??......Ganache?? I'm from Hawthorne here.
I will put up a slogan page and let everyone know what we have so far. Thanks Frank . . . . .

Message: Can Joe Mailander really be Leroy? Based on almost 25 years of experience with Joe, I can safely say: MAILANDER IS CAPABLE OF ANYTHING!! However, I know for a fact that Joe has never been involved with any woman named Beulah. And he has always preferred modern jazz and opera, to bluegrass music. Hmmm, I share Sharon's suspicions about these other dubious names -- Royal Lord, Robin Hood, Jack Hammer. THOSE CAN'T BE FOR REAL!!! Their postings must all be part of a big conspiracy.
Ted, There's no "Deep Throat" conspiracy with the first two. I can personally lay witness to those two. Now Jack Hammer......I'm not so sure.
I think there was a John (Jack) Daniels in there somewhere too, and how about Ty Dye.

I always stop look and listen around the tracks. alright so here is a new entry complete with graphics or the idea, a big locomotive lots of smoke thundering down the tracks, lots of reds and golds, with caption cougartown.com-we're always on the right track!!!

Not being invited to the BBQ and then being slammed in print!!!! :} Mom B - did you double the cocoa in the recipe and did you use the real Best Foods? Ok, Mr. King, I know you will say hers was better, but, tell me anyway how they compared. And, Robin, like Sloey, you can bit** and complain, but the Royal Baker can't send anything to anyone without an address. For some reason I haven't figured out how to send baked goods through the e-mail configuration.
Hi Myrna "darlin", Mom B's cake was made with real mayo, and she frosted hers, and yes, she doubled the cocoa. As far as the cake was concerned, the only difference was that yours was more "brownie like". I don't know why, but probably from the difference in mayo?? Hey, I enjoyed them both and which ever way you make it, it's fantastic.
Thanks Myrna for thinking of me and you know I can't stop kidding you huh.Be a Coug . . . . .

Message: Dear John:
Just got back from several days of business in Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico. It took hours of reading to catch up and realize their is a T-Shirt design needed with my name on it. My first question is out of the two million slogans submitted who's going to pick the winner? The right graphic design is actually second to selecting the right slogan. Right? Anyway, I am game to design the shirts and help get them printed thru whoever you choose. It would be an honor since I did T-shirts on HHS campus starting in 1959. Is someone putting together a list of final choices for a slogan? There were many good ideas already. Let me know how I can help. And it is good to see some more 1960's join in. I did speak with Richard Little but haven't seen a message from him yet. He is a Chief of Police in a small Nebraska town. Anybody know what heppened to Jerry and Dennis Parket '60 & '61?
Let me know about the shirt design.
Hi Alan, Ricki V has initiated that task. It would be an honor for Cougartown to have shirts designed by our 2 main early 60's artists. I'll pick about 10 or 12 from the one's mentioned, and we'll vote on the those, paring them to the top 3 or 4. Ricki, you and Alan can get together on the designs, or do separate themes. It doesn't matter, as you two are the designers. I'll give this slogan thing about another week, then we'll pick. Ricki's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks Alan for getting involved. I'm sure you two will do us all proud. Be a Coug......

Next time nothing will stop me and Killer from being there. I said "temporary royal" as I realize I am about to be dethroned by Ms. Ciampa/Walling. Speaking of Homecoming, how's the plans coming? I'm almost afraid to ask :):) but, do you need anything for the picnic?? Just let me know. I love the "Let freindship begun...." slogan but maybe we could add,
"All hail to you, hail cougartown.com"
with the cougar logo under it. John - I finally got to go through ALL the pictures of Foster's, and your very welcome. It was a pleasure to serve some one who has brought so much fun to so many. (How am I doing in the suck up department??) I'll see you at Homecoming.

Message: Mom B you are too funny. So stop, it is hard enough trying to at least stay close to the gay quiver without you coming out of no where. John is boring, I went to lunch with him he fell asleep twice----while he was talking. Friends? Friends don't let friends spend their Saturdays without a barbque, Mom. So I got a funny story, ok I say it is funny but it isn't about Robin it is about someone else but I am changing it to Robin just because of a lot of things and one of which is I am still upset about Robin picking on me today, hey if you get a call tonight at 3 Robin it is I! Anyway Robin and Gary Mykannen are at the Colorado River having a great time. They are what you may call biding in some rather strong libations. They nearly run over three or four skiers (now this is true except for Robin) when the shore patrol pulls them in. Robin tells Gary make up a name they will never know. Gary nods. What is your name they ask Robin. "Clyde Flopermeister." our Prince states in his best slur. Address. 1430 clydes drive, fountain Valley california. The officer is writing it down. Next he asks Gary and What is your name buddy. "Robin Hood. 4563 West 134th Street Hawthorne, California." They both received tickets but they are still looking for Mr. Flopermeister.

Message: You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth! Well, okay, here's the truth - that BBQ was my MOTHERS idea only she doesn't want anyone to know that she is lurking so she never writes in! What a change from the days when I wanted to have parties but mom wouldn't let me... now she MAKES me! So any complaints about the guest list, send directly to her. We only split the party between houses so the kids could swim while we conducted opening ceremonies by whipping up (and slugging down) about 4 pitchers of (KILLER) margaritas. Next time, I say, to heck with the BBQ, let's just have the margs and horses ovaries... kinda like a wine tasting but we'll just sample all the different tequilas... Besides, anyone with energy enough to expend on TPing an unsuspecting hosts' home (from the INSIDE no less) obviously didn't drink enough tequila... next time it's shooters, or OFF WITH YOUR HEADS! (Ah, reliving the days of my mis-spent youth!) And yes, the entire court is invited- to MOMS house...

The King is one tough customer....he even complained when I lent him a bed warmer (aka Stewie). Actually, the next BBQ is open to all. We missed Little Susie Ciampa and crew - hope the gang is feeling better. BUT, you should all know that we DID include you in the festivities, laughed and laughed and laughed at stories about you all. John gave up some of the royal secrets....I am making a list of those who wish to join me on a royal field trip to visit the King at his place and don't forget to bring the Charmin....!! E-Me!!
Thanks for the warning Sue. I will tie my 2 dobermans, Scarlet and Goldie, in the front yard and give them plenty of leash.

BORING!!!??? Well I guess I was boring by Mom B's standards. I was so embarrassed for the poor Bierman girls as Mom "B" got whacked on cooking sherry in the middle of the afternoon, hopped the back fence, grabbed the weed whacker from the hands of the neighbor's gardener, and yelled LAMBADA!!!
