Message: Happy Birthday John Baker; Growing up with you and Tom and some of the other good people that we were lucky enough to know, and still being as close as we are to most of them is absolutely amazing. The main reason we can still do this amazing thing is because you put in the time and love that it took to build a place called Cougartown, and you continue to keep this very special gift alive and growing. You are loved by more people than anyone else I know and you deserve it all. Many happy returns buddy; Mikey

Message: The '67/'66 class reunion was a winner again. Good food, good grog, and the stylings of "Monty and the Crystals". The dance floor was the place to be...would've thunk that one of HHS's star roundballer was born to dance. With his lovely dance partner, they looked like the winners on Dancing with the Stars. Who? Guess? Give up? Should've been there!!! Good job committee...
Geez, you just can't beat a good reunion, man. Thanks Steve, glad you and the rest had a fun night.

Message: I want to be the first to wish a very Happy Birthday to my long time good friend. Mr. John Baker. I know you older people like to go to bed early, so you won't get this 'til morning...which, of course is your b'day anyway. But, you know what? Bumpy road and all, we've had some d**n good times over the past 50 plus years. I think that you and Mike and I have a lot to be thankful for. I don't know a lot of people who can say that they still hang out with guys they met in grade school. Have a good one bud. And thanks for all your hard work on this site. It is truly unique. Tom
Hey man, YES, we have had a blast in the last few decades. Carpinteria comes to mind, and a little place down South called Los Pantalones AND how about that weekend in Kernville? Of course the Shelley Press and SBS and probably 500 other things. Good friends are great but keeping good friends since grade school, like you and Mike, is very special. Thanks for the birthday wishes Tom, and for all the good times past too. Let's keep this going for at least 3 or 4 more decades to come.

Time to do a little drinkin' & dancin' at another wedding, Carol, so who can we marry off now? And yes, it's time to make out the bucket list--I love your butterfly tattoo on FB Carol, but can't figure out where you put it on the ol' bod. These days the arms look pretty much like the legs.

Message: Very sad day today with the passing of Neil Armstrong! That triggered a real strong Hawthorne memory for me..I remember that July night back in '69. I was sitting on the floor in our living room on Cedar St. with my sister Beth(73) and brother Raymond(71). I asked my mom if I could stay up to see the actual first step. Being a teacher at Ramona school my mom knew the significance of the moment and allowed us all to stay up as late as it took. We have lost a true Amewrican hero and a world hero too!
That's for sure Clark.
