Message: See you tonight, John. I just tried clicking on the Eight Fingered Criminal's Son book on the right, but could not get a link. Maybe it's my computer or maybe the link is down. I want to get it. I tried bookstores, but no one has it yet. I'll surf the net and see what happens. Again, Candy and I will see all of you this evening

Message: Sadly, there's a memorial for Rose Mary Lentz, who lost her fight with cancer and who is Bob Cavanagh's girlfriend and a tireless worker in the Womens Auxiliary. The memorial is Sat, Oct 15, at the Haw. VFW post at 4:00 pm in which we'll be honoring her with a buffet afterward. She didn't attend HHS, but many people knew of her through Bob. Then on Sunday, Jan will rattle those pots and pans at the Hawthorne VFW post's breakfast - from 9 - 11:30 am. Can't make the homecoming but I'm still rooting for our HHS football team. Unbelievable winning streak!!!!!

Message: There was a time prior to the seventies, that T.P.ing, egging, and fireworks was as good as it got. So, my comrades and I did so much of the above, to senior square, the football field, I.B.M. cards the day before, I.B.M. day at school, record centers, etc. until finally they put a reward out for us. But, back then there weren't so many rats, and we didn't really hurt anyone, 'cept maybe the custodians. And that wasn't on purpose either. So, much fun, I think everyone should just cool out and throw a few eggs this Halloween, maybe T.P. a house, but at least go house to house on a scavenger hunt and make some new friends... My Best, J.M.O.III

Message: I never heard of Noteno Tex Mex music with the accordion, I grew up with the polish polka and I married a man that played music polkas by Frankie Yankovic. I also loved to dance the Polish Polkas at weddings. Sorry about that. I know very little of Wayne just remember him from high school in the wrestling team. I didn’t know him as long as you have. Nice man I wish him well with his music and I am glad he plays the accordion. Music is something I love and wish everyone that loves music would learn an instrument. I play the piano but not well --just chop sticks lol, lol … I can only sing, but than again my husband use to tell me don’t quit your day job. Lol….

Message: Well, just got back from "The Big Squeeze" in Orange County. For those people that don't know about this event, it is a group of Accordian players from all over America. Great music that only an Accordian player could appreciate. Although I must say Accordian music has changed a bit. With the new technology they sound more like an organ than an Accordian. I'll take the good old Accordian sound any day. John I'm thinking of a good Polka, can you guess? Well it's back to my 2 hour practice session. Got to get ready for the next gig.

He said he was from the fifty's and hung out on 117th street. Don't know which end. I couldn't find him in the Alumni List and am wondering if anyone remembers him. This happened in Salt Lake City, Utah. By the way, John, our E Mail address does still work, we had some kind of a glitch here for a few days.
