Message: Wow! So great to see Tom DeGrazia's picture next to my last feedback! How do you do that? And then to see Petey's pic! Now that brought back memories. How about someone putting that picture from the 1970 year book of Pam Cleeton's 1949 or so car in senior square! Meeting Lisa Graham (67) last week end in Oahu and finding out the "whereabouts" of Pam Cleeton has sparked my memories, (I had been looking for her for years.) She was the first person I surfed with and I am grateful for her friendship, and her skills at getting me out of spanish in the am's when the surf was up. Any other true 26st'ers out there. Lisa says she is still a card carrying original.
Hi Sharon, The Tom DeGrazia picture was actually sent to me by Petey, and I just received it a day or so ago. You mentioned his name and well......there he is. If someone with a scanner has that picture of the 49, please send it along and I'll put it up too. Thanks Sharon......

Everyone else...take a back seat!
JB(the other one)
I agree that NO one can compare with these two non cookin', sink doin', canned pea eatin', Rowdy Queens from the early 60's, but there're other Rowdys out there (you for one), and it wouldn't hurt the Queen of the Rowdys to go over the Rowdy ground rules just one more time for the perspective rookies in the group.

Hey Kelley, Yes, I think Liz would make a great Rowdy, but I was waiting for the "Queen of the Rowdys" to lay down the Rowdy rules.

Message: You never know where you will run into another Cougar. July 1965, three years after Graduation from "Good Old HHS" I got drafted into the Army. I lost my student deferment partly due to my greed in working to earn enough money to take helicopter flying lessons and partly (ok, mostly) cause I didn't go to classes often enough at El Camino and they didn't want me back. So anyway, I am in basic training at Fort Polk, Louisianna and I get cellulitus, kind of a cross between a pimple and a boil and I can't walk or march or run. The army puts me in the hospital and starts giving me shots of Penicillin several times a day in the hip. Next Day they put a new patient in the bed next to mine. He looks familiar but doesn't have much hair. While he is off getting his sheets I crawl out of my bed and look at the name tag on the end of his. It is Donald Scheliga another class of '62 alumnus. We had a reunion right there in the hospital. He also had Cellulitus, but told them he was allergic to Penicillin so he didn't get the shots, but took some pill instead. Needless to say he got better before I did. Haven't seen him since, but I see he is a gold star member of Cougartown. What am I doing now? The Army taught me to fly helicopters and after I retired I went to work teaching flying as a civilian at the Army flight school. As Royal Lord says, Thank God I'm a Coug.
Hey Cal, I talked to Don a month or so ago. He's doing fine and IS a member in good standing of our illustrious Cougartown group. Thanks for the story.......
