Message: Jody you warmed my heart with your response. There were alot more Cougs that went into the B&T than we can name, but I do remember Tom as the owner. I remember a guy named Rick, I think anyway, had a broken leg and he and I and a couple others chased some so-called bad ass hood out of that place one night. Too long a story to tell. But as far as the longevity of our Cougs, we've got Rich and Mary Sloan, 51 yrs in a month or so just behind us. Ours is Sunday the 17th, 51 yrs, not counting the two before we got hitched. Royal c/o 61 and Patti Lord 45 +, Jim and Sandie Perry 60/62, 45 plus, Tom and Di Porter c/o 60, 45 +. I guess some of the "I Do's" do last, until death do us part. Good luck to all you Cougs. We stick together like birds of a feather. AND Happy Dads Day to all of you Cougar Dads. MAY THE COUGAR BE WITH YOU. Jake N Jude
Thanks Russ for the updated people I/we forgot. Is there anyone else with 45 years plus?

Message: My son, Marc Stowe was killed in a car accident on June 2. He leaves behind a wife and four children. A daughter Alexa 18, and three sons, ages 15,14, and 13. I know probably none of you knew him because we raised him in MN and he married a Minnesota girl and stayed there. Please visit his Memorial on facebook. Marc Stowe Memorial. He had been in horrible pain from a back injury that happened when he was on the job. For years he was in constant pain. Surgery helped somewhat but the day to day pain was unbearable. That he is out of his pain is the only comfort I have. Please visit his facebook Memorial. I want him to be remembered. He left a big hole in our lives and hearts.
Very sad news, Sharon. My sincere condolences to you and the rest of the family.

We even had a blind lady who would come in for a beer and write a short note. I also worked at the Kelp Bed and The Hatch Cover. They were all owned by Tom Wadman and I would rotate. Fun times. Next month we are celebrating John's mothers 100th birthday. Probably see a lot of Cougars there.

Message: Bobby Jensen you are too funny. When we were really little kids, Tom Woodward got a pet desert turtle. Mrs. Woodward put a suggestion box on their front porch and told all the kids in the neighborhood to put names for the turtle in the box. She said that Saturday morning they would pull a name from the box to name the turtle. When Saturday morning rolled around all the kids were gathered around their porch to see whose name would be picked. When she opened the box, there was only one name in the box. Fluffy. To this day, Mrs. Woodward thinks I did it. I still crack up every time I think of Fluffy
Good one Noreen, kinda like naming your bunny "TANK" huh

Message: I have really enjoyed the input about The Beach Boy's shows. Could not make it myself. David Marks back with them is wonderful, anyone remember "The Marksmen". I did meet Bruce Johnston on a passenger train once, I held out my hand and said "Hawthorne High Alumni?) he shook my hand and said "that was the Wilson's, I went to University High". Later on I gave him a switch blade comb as a gift. Do ya think he remembers? We did have little chat later that day, a real treat for me.
Yes Bruce Johnson HHS60, not Bruce JohnsTon, Beach Boy, went to HHS. Thanks Randy, for the memory.
