Message: That picture is hauntingly familiar. The boys in the back are from Left: Jim Hess (with Charley McCarthy), Danny Litton and the guy in the leather chair would be a bunch of trouble as the pillow he has, belongs on the next chair (floral print). The lad is a young Robert Deniro. The Kleenex box behind his head is of the Willow design, a new concept in packaging. That innovation came about in marketing in the fall of 1967, and that means that these children would be about 15. The big black phone on the stand is due to be replaced soon by a Princess model. The number is OS5-4884, and will ring in the next 30 seconds. The blonde girls are from the set of the Brady Bunch, one is Morgan Fairchild. None were at Cruise Night (I think).
Hey Jim, I love the wood paneling/wallpaper contrast and the large woven oval rug atop the shag carpeting. Very hip in the mid 60s.

And of course, hanging out with all the fun people and a special date with Bobby J. Alas, I had a previous commmitment for April 2 - I will make NO PLANS for any Saturday night in August reserving all for CT. Besides, we are also overdue for planning the CT picnic. A day in the park with this group is good for the soul and it's been awhile....I DO know those mid 70's Cougs in the pic - do I see the Berardinos? Sunday and Dominic?
YES YOU DO!! Sunday was there last night and wanted you to have this picture. She lives in El Segundo and I told her about the Cougartown Picnic in September. She'll be there. Now that you've brought up the picnic Sue; you, Judy Wudy, and Bob Jensen ARE IN CHARGE.

Message: Gary, I'm so sorry for your loss. Cougars everywhere share your sorrow. Please know that we have you in our hearts and prayers. John, I won't be at Cruise Night as I sadly have a funeral to attend. Very unlikely that it will be over in time but if we can make it to Cruise Night, we will. Don, please come to Cruise Night! Clark will probably be there, I always count on him showing up, it's his sacred duty as Senior Class President. (For the rest of his life. And beyond.) He may bring Mr. Key who is always so much fun to see! Or Coach Plum, or ??? There's always someone fun to catch up with at Cruise Night! Oh Don, please tell Ron that I'll be seeing Liz Hoskinson at the funeral. They knew each other in the Renaissance Faire back in the 60's. Er, 80's. Oh, you know. When we were all kids.
