Message: A gathering of the NorCal 61ers. Last week Jimmy Peppers flew up to Sacramento during his visit from Greece. He stayed a few days with Ginny & I. We had a great visit; trips to Tahoe & the obligatory tour of the Capitol & other places in the Sacramento area. But the best of all was a mimi-gathering of some of the NorCal 61ers. We had a dinner at my home and the following 61ers gathered around to break bread with our special European guest; Larry Smith & wife De (Reno, NV), Royal Lord & wife Pat (Live Oak), & Kathy Barnes Drager & hubby Larry (Davis).... and of course Ginny & myself. Kathy brought her old class books from Hawthorn Intermediate & the HHS El Molino's. It was fun looking through these old books and seeing what we all wrote to Kathy all those many years ago. Royal & I see each other a couple times a year since he moved to No Cal. Larry & I meet up again a couple of years ago. Jim & I stay in touch by email & Skype... But I haven't seen Kathy since graduation... 1961... even though she only lives a few short miles down the road... John, thanks for Cougar Town. This Cougar gathering should get double points over a simple Cougar sighting.

If anyone has his contact information, would you be so kind to send it to me. There seems to be enough interest in a Class of '64 reunion in 2014. If I haven't contacted you yet, and you are interested in attending, let me know at the email address above. Thanks.

Message: Hey! Summer cruising season is heating up here in Nevada. Hot August Nights is coming soon. Every Wednesday night a lot of people go to our local A&W to hang out and show off some nice rides. Many other events happen all summer-almost too many to list. The Rockabilly Riot is at the Grand Sierra Hotel. Car show, swapmeet, drags burnout contests, Music, all fun stuff. Way back when Haytown Blvd. was a big thing in our area. Bigger yet and longer lasting was Van Nuys Blvd. on Wednesday night. Anyone out there that made that scene have any stories to share? They now allow cruising on VNB the 2nd Wed. of each month after many years of prohibition since 1980. I was there the nite they shut it down-nearly caused a riot = people were pissed! The cops trying to direct traffic were pelted with bottle rockets, firecrackers, and saw at least one Big Mac hurled at police. In some ways cruising was more fun back when the government considered it to be a public nuisance. Now the cool car scene is a big industry. And we all got older and maybe a little mellower. Still fun to participate in this-keeps me feeling young. I hop into the 73 Nova-crank up the tunes and ride - kind of feels like a time machine of sorts. If anyone out there is attending HAN give me a email. Will try to meet up if possible. Until next time Best Wishes to all. BC 73.

Message: Good morning John...I understand if you feel you may not want to post my comments on something Bob Faulkner recently commented on regarding the horrific deaths of 5 young AMERICAN teenagers who died in a car crash over the Memorial Day holiday. What really struck me was his segway into his comments...." On a light side " he says and he goes on to say...the horrific accident ONLY sparked his interest because he read somehwere they were out celebrating their immigration???? Really..Instead of feeling empathy for their families who lost their children, your first inclination was to disparage them...well first of all that was not true...but even so what if it was? They were celebrating the Memoral Day by going to the beach and yes they were being very irresponsible and were distracted and they paid the ultimate price by the drivers inexperience and fast car. But to say you Bob don't remember wanting to wrap yourself around a tree so you infer that these young teenagers WANTED TOO!!! And then you say you are glad you were born American!!!!! Just for your information which you failed to get before you stereotyped these young people. They were born American citizens, two of the young victums were sisters. Their families were American citizens...but how you want to make this absolute horrible tragedy for 5 families into something about immigration is just unconsionable and in very very bad taste!!!! Yes my comments about his very insensitive and callous comments are not what the people of this site come to look at ...but I just had to clarify alot of his very wrong assumptions about people he doesn't know a hill a beans about. I appreciate you John for allowing me to vent and I completely understand if you feel this site is not the appropriate place for my feedback...but conversely I do not feel his comments about the deaths of young men and women were either. Thank you

Message: A great big "Happy Birthday has to go out to Les Jones('73) For those of you who don't know Les, he is a big guy. I remember my freshman year at HHS. If Les was in Senior Square it was not wise to try to run through or the traditional head first dump into the trash cans was unavoidable. At Docs' gym in Hawthorne, Les was known as "Dinosaur". A big guy but a gentle guy as I remember. Happy birthday Dinosaur!!
