Message: Thanks for the birthday wishes! And thanks too for not mentioning any jokes about old age! Mike and I had a lovely weekend in Savannah to celebrate, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Even though it was hot and humid, Savannah is a great place if you love to dabble in history, and we do. And Happy Birthday to my compadre Clark, whom I've known since kindergarten at York School! I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of Judi. I'll never forget the story Russ told about the moon shining off his bald head and keeping her awake- she was obviously a woman of great humor. And sorry to hear of the loss of John Crotty as well, he was much loved by the Hawthorne community. My sympathies to both families. Happy Birthday Mr. John Baker, my favorite Cougartowner of all!

Message: Went to see the Beach Boys last night with Debbie. Oh Man, what happened? Not the same as I remember, but nothing is. Man did 50 years just fly by me when I wasn't looking? Oh ya, forgot I was living life, and planning a trip down there again in a couple of weeks. It seems I always miss the car shows also, my luck!

Message: Thanks John for Cruise Night & for all you do for the greatest High School & Town ever. Great to see Coach Plum who I played my only year of football for in his first year at HHS 1956 B team. Also seeing Don/Crow, we go back over 60 years, & were still walking & able to remember! Great to see Jodi & Dave & Dale. Dave was also on that 56 B Team. I think I talked his ear off, maybe both. Missed seeing Judy & Jan but will try & get over it, will seek some therapy. Easy trip home, by 11:00am Sun. Hope to make it over for future Cruise nights. John, really sharp Chevy truck. Would not change a thing if it was mine. Sloey don't give in, this football thing will turn around (Sooner) than you think!!

Message: Hey, it is August, the dog days of summer and my baseball team is mired in last place way behind the LA Puigsters. Of course I have to take shots at my Trojan friends when it looks like we have a leg up in football this Fall. No, CTown is not a Stanford website nor is it one for SC, but sometimes changing the topic after so much sad news is a helpful thing to do. Just trying to have a little bit of fun with you JB, that's all. Maybe getting a good football discussion might be more entertaining than hearing about the latest Cougar siting from our resident stalker, the Clark "The Mailman" Millman. Sloey, you have anything to add?

Message: Re Look-a-like Observation: Yes, Trout and Barkley may look a like, but Trout is a young superstar in baseball and Barkley is another in a long line of SC second rate QBs like Mark Sanchez and Carson Palmer. If you want a first rate QB, go to the school which produced Frankie Albert (T-formation), John Brodie, Jim Plunkett, John Elway, Andrew Luck and now Kevin Hogan. Oh yeah, the Cardinal begin 2013 ranked #4 in the country. Did not find SC anywhere on the ranked teams???
