Message: Trying to arrange for a mini-family-friends reunion soon and wondered if anyone knows of a place that is for rent by the night, maybe in the Whittier area? We are coming from several places and this may be a way to cut down on costs. I found a great place, but it was taken for all the nights we may be availalbe. We want to see Disneyland among other things. Ideas?

Message: Long while since checking in...things are as smooth as ever John! Three topics caught my interest. 1.Bob's Big Boy - went there after basketball games. Debbie Colburn, Nancy Hart and I kept stats for the team. They used to serve milkshakes in the stainless steel (or metal at least) mixing cups, so delicious. 2.Beatles - I was at my grandparents house in Culver City for that great event. Every Sunday night we were there for dinner and Ed Sullivan. Paul is still my favorite. 3. Basque heritage - John P and Janet B mentioned Basque food/restaurants. I grew up with some of the finest Basque cooking around. My grandmother was from Urepel, France, a small town in the Pyrenees. She was Basque and could make the most basic of food delicious. Nice trip down memory lane.

Message: I remember going to Bob's Big Boy with 5-6 of my buddies after a football game, one of the guys, I can't remember who ordered apple pie. The waitress asked if he wanted it ala mode. He looked at her with a blank look on his face, not knowing what she was talking about. The waitress said, "you know, ice cream". It still didn't register with my friend, and he simply told the waitress, "I don't know what you're talking about but just give me some apple pie with some of that ala mode stuff on the side".

Message: Re: Bob's Big Boy, I was surprised when I moved to Ohio that they are everywhere around here, except that they are called Frisch's Big Boy. The fat-boy statue is exactly the same. My memory about eating at Bob's after the football games during my senior year was that I couldn't relax and totally enjoy myself with "the gang" because I was nervous about getting home and writing up the game story for the Daily News. I felt I should have been "doing my job", but I didn't want to miss the after-game fun. I'd be up all hours of the night writing because I was so slow at it.

Message: Thirty-three days until retirement but who's counting. Time to get down to serious reunion planning. I asked two classmates to be the keepers of the funds, both declined. Any serious objections to letting me do the banking? On the topic of Bob's Big Boy, if I can trust Wikipedia, the Burbank store might have been the first. I was there a couple of years ago and it was their version of the weekly "Cruise Night." The street (alley) behind the restaurant was blocked off and parked up with vintage cars. The food was good but not what I remember from my youth. A couple of Sundays a month growing up, Dad would take the tribe (he went for himself but allowed us to go along) to the L. A. County Museum. After hours of 'running around the museum,' he'd pack us up and head for Bob's. I know the old synapses aren't firing at the same speed these days, but I guarantee corporate bob isn't the same as food of our youth. Oh, and a thank you to the L. A. County and the Science Museum that played a big part in who I am today, and for getting me through to retirement.

One draw was the Big Boy Combo featuring the double-decker burger, cheese, fries, and the small salad with thousand island dressing. I always loved the taste of Bob's special seasoning salt. Still have some I found at a Bob's facimile on a trip back east.

Message: HEY! Long-time, no-post. Thanks very much for the BD wishes. Don't know how Sue remembers that my favorite is strawberry shortcake! First kiss ... now hang onto your hats, but I SWEAR this is the truth ... was when I was 16-1/2 years old and was delivered by Lynn Knauss from Leuzinger. He was later my husband ... much later. And we went together longer than we were married! haha He remained a dear friend till he died a few years ago. And did you hear? 1957 is having some kind of a get together in June. Buddy Youngreen, bless his heart, is at the helm again and we thank him profusely! I guess Buddy figured he'd better plan a 57th instead of waiting for a 60th reunion, before we all kick the bucket! haha Actually, it has something to do with Buddy's dyslexia ... he said the majority of the class is turning 75 this year so it seemed like the time to have a 57th reunion.

I do have an announcement as there's a Valentine's Day dinner (fund raiser) at the Haw VFW this Sunday. Lots of food and fun and what else do you have to do, and church does not count! Don't run for your antidepressant yet, I was joking. BTW-you don't need to make a reservation, you can buy the tickets at the door when you arrive. Live band and a nice cool bar with Margaritas & beer flowing all day. The first drink is on me, the next ten you'll have to buy yourself. And no, you can't order triple Pedrone for the first drink and beer thereafter. JDB
