Message: You dance too, Robin? You should never have let that slip out. A guy that dances and enjoys it is hard to find and in damand when found. Next event, all the girls will be lined up for their turn. Is it legal to dance in the aisle of a moving bus? Just wondering. Any of you guys who want to give Robin a little competition better start practicing. I wish someone would write in and describe the night that Mike Colbern caught for the Chicago White Sox at Angel Stadium and Hawthorne had a whole section filled to the brim between home and first base. We stood and cheered every time Mike merely caught the ball. It was hilarious and a night to remember. Maybe Mike could tell us his prospective of the evening. I have always wondered what his team mates thought of the whole thing. The rest of the stadium must have wondered as well. Mike?

JB, I finally drug myself back to Oregon but not without bringing more great memories than one Prince can handle. From Friday night Oct 1st with Judy D standing on the curb waving me home (pre-op) till last tuesday Nov 2 when I stopped at Celesti Gelati to say goodbye (post-op), I could have never asked for a better hostess....She kept me nourished and rested for the plethora of activities in a schedule that had to be meant for 3 people..Thanks Judy :o)...
To anyone and everyone that had anything to do with the Homecoming game, the Stick and Stein, the picnic, (I still have bruises from the football game Susan...canning the center was banned in the 60s but Im not complaining as we won handily :o), the VFW breakfast, visiting the HHS campus and Nyman hall, I thank you was a total blast...
To the Rowdy Girls and the dinners (none cooked of course:o) a great night at Tonys though, with Sandy, Marsha, and Barbara, the shows, the walks on the beach, Tofu, Jamba Juice, Good Stuff salads, Protein drinks, Starbucks , The Spot (JBs favorite:o), and of course the runs to Pinks ....It just couldnt have been any better...
And a big thanks to Rich Sloan ...The Brian Wilson concert was a total gas and to have 14 classmates and friends at our table made it all the better...also great to see Parnelli Jones and Dean Thompson a few times for lunch...Thanks again Rich for all the pics...
Mom B and the B girls (geeze that Sharons a dancer!)
Patty V , nice to meet you..
Angel Karen... finally!...
Debbie Sloey you need to cheer up but that guy you hang with seems nice:o)..
Joyce and Janet, my pleasure...Aunts, uncles, cousins, pets...NEVER had a better month Cougs...more range of emotions than a monster hot flash brings (so Im told)...
John, Thomas Wolfe couldn't have been a Cougar because you certainly CAN go home...And I for one could get to like the stay tuned :o)...

Message: Judy Judy Judy! Blue flamers have to do with the gas flame usually on a counter top, when the flame is blue too much gas, when it is yellow not enough, but the flame can emanate from other areas that are way to gross to mention here. Dingle berries are best left unsaid. Sherrie Moyers you are it and the game is over! Do you want us to put it to a vote? All of you in the class of 76 who want Sherrie Moyers to chair your reunion write in with a yes. Since that is the only measure on the ballot Sherrie, we are not counting any ballots, you're a cinch. And anyone else who wants to vote. And Sherrie I can't believe you forgot who I was already, it has only been 4 or 5 years or more Hey Royal get well! El Rojo thanks for the email! Sloey
Good answer on the "Judy question". Glad that one's off the table. Now on to more memorable subjects. Thanks Jim......

For someone that doesn't cook, you sure know how to stir the pot pretty good. Of concern is this need to expound upon "BLUE FLAMER'S & DINGLE BERRY'S. Just what happened during your surgery? Your comments would indicate that there maybe a new growth problem. It's good that you don't cook! Could you just imagine if there happen to be any confusion. What's for dinner? Chile dogs at PINKS.... That should do it.

Hi Linda, The first Newsletter has yet to be sent out. As of now, we don't have the funds to get it off the ground, but as more and more people find the website and become members, we're slowly building the money to generate the first Newsletter. Also, we need more snail mail addresses of Cougs who do not have Internet access. Your check is here and will be deposited soon. Thanks for your concern and please be assured that the Newsletter is still very much in the works. It's just going to take longer than anticipated to get it going.

He hadn't been at our house for very long when, low and behold he is on the floor all rolled over doing a 'Blue Flamer'! Needless to say, I was cracking up! I am saddened that I am now disqualified for the 'prize', seeings how I cheated and all. Oh well, I guess it's just another one of lifes little disappointments I'll have to get over, somehow.

When I saw the reference to my "dump truck", I couldn't let it pass. Myrna, you were close Tom didn't have the same sense of humor as some of us, but neither did Jim. I do remember John B, Bob R, and George G. I always wondered about those guys in the Ford pickup (I never saw it again). I remember wondering how much those two motorcops were going to inconvenience us that evening. Of course, you know, that my "dump truck" is a story for another day.
Hey Norval, Great to hear from you. You're just going to have to MAKE time for the Feedback page. That's all there is to that, and thanks for showing up tonight. Yeah the "dump truck" (55 Chevy pickup) made a fine eggin' vehicle too.

Message: Hi everybody! I hope that you've all made it through halloween healthy and full of energy. Do any of you guys who work on cars, specifically VW's, know if there is a local place where I can get some white sidewall tires for my '65 bug? (local means L.A. or Orange Cty.) I currently have Firestone S60-15, I think. I can order the tires from Coker, but I need to know if anyone will mount them. Actually, I wish that I could do the whole thing in one place. My car is almost done, but the tires have been a nightmare. This ain't my bag, but I luv my bug. Thanks.
Hi Ricki, S60-15 doesn't sound correct, but I would think you could get WW's to fit a 65 VW without paying the "Coker Price".

So, in the spirit of giving back to the community, and because you've given us so much entertainment John, would you like your snickers and jolly ranchers (about 20 lbs of them) mailed UPS or USPost priority mail?
Consider it a small housewarming gift (although some claim milky ways make a terrific stuffing for turkey . . . .)
