Message: Johnny boy......what did I ever do to you???? It was Mrs. Blomsterberg that called you fingers and talked about the rum caper, I was the nice quiet one. The only time I made a face like that was when I saw the GIANT PUSTULE you wore on your lip the entire Maui trip. Are PUSTULES forever?????
Marsha Russell-Hood (Pustule free)

That wasn't a pustule that was a malignancy. I can't believe it folks, I get this GIANT cold sore on my lip the day before I go to Hawaii and it doesn't leave until the day after I get back. BEE-YOU-TEA-FULL!!!
Re the picture; Marsha, frankly I was getting real tired of all the perfect Maui wedding scenes and thought I'd bring you back to reality. This is Marsha doing her famous Bucky Beaver impression at cruise night 1. Does anyone remember Ipana toothpaste?

John Laven the last time I saw you we were at Al's bar downtown LA somewhere then on to the the Atomic Cafe where I ran into a friend of mine from Oregon. That was 20 years ago. By the way where is Eric Munson? A note to Ricky Davidson leader of the Revolution, get well soon and join us here on the Gold Coast! Love Ya! Petey
A Coug by marriage, YES. A Rowdy by marriage, I don't think so. See, a Rowdy doesn't cook, so I guess you COULD be a Rowdy by marriage but..........JUDY!!!

Lee, (Mom) worked at Computax. She still lives over on 137th Place & Oceangate. There's a picture of Tom and I over on my website Of course it was taken back in 1987 when we got married. Congratulations to the two couples who recently got married.!! Best wishes always... This website truly makes me laugh because HHS Alumni have such a neat sense of humor and seem so close. Mr. Baker, I plug this website often and it is linked on mine...Too bad I had to go to West High School where we have a bunch of stuck-ups...:}:} By the way before I forget, not only did my husband go to HHS so did my son-in-law Justin Metsker....What a small world!
Mr Baker??!! That's my father's name. Thanks Kathy and you're always welcome here as we all grew up in the same streets, plus you ARE married to a Coug.

I didn't mind that bone ugly picture of me with no makeup on..but why did you have to blow it up so darn big and add that goider to my neck...& I think you can see my sinuses from here. And I think I have a few goodies of you in Hawaii to pass around..however, I'm not editor and chief of CT so I'll just have to hire a crop duster and drop flyers all over southern Calif. So the moral of the story here is.."In the valley of the blind, the man with one eye is KING" and you are the KING! Oh ya.. the story about the fifth of rum is true. Love you madly anyway..

~~~~~~~Well John Boy... MOOBA in Hawaiian means, " The Rowdiest, but most beautiful girl on the island that never tells on the Big Kahuna that stole a fifth of rum and an ugly fruit from the local market & almost got all his good buds put in jail on a recent visit to Hawaii" Now.. I'm putting my canned goods together for the donation at the VFW breakfast...and I'm off like a prom dress. Judy DeGrazia Blomsterberg

Judy wanted me to share this lovely picture taken of her at an exclusive club in Maui. Thanks Judy for sending me the picture, you ARE a giver......

Do you know that Val and I have been trying to send you e-mail now and unsuccessfully, I might add, for the last 4 weeks? I'll say your work needs to get you a new computer...either that, or your works network is FUBAR!!!! So, no, we haven't forgotten about you dear. We even got your virus warning on the 16th, but when I tried to reply, you guessed came back. I hope you know by now that we found Paulette DesRosiers, thanks to Ray Nelson, my bud in Billy Goat Acres (what a guy) : ) I've tried to send you her address and phone number. She's just in Gardena, you know. Hey, and Eva even e-mailed you hon! She got so frustrated, she asked me to try and send it, so I did, and once again...uh huh...undeliverable! YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON SO MUCH!!!!!! I am so bummed and I miss ya! So, do you have a home e-mail address or a friends computer you could use or a library you could go to and use theirs? Heck, I was a library web junkie up until a few months ago. Better than nothing! Do something...we all miss ya. E me your home address and phone...I'll just call ya...heck, you are definitely worth the toll call!
That's the frustrating part. When someone changes, or gives out the wrong email address, then I can't even contact them to let them know it's wrong.
People will put in an email change and it'll say "john14" ........that does no good without the "" part. Every email address needs a user name (john14) an "@" sign, and a domain name ( Please check to see if I put your changes in. If not, you probably left something out. Thanks......

It was on the island of Oahu on the North Shore. I can relate to the sentiments of not wanting to come home ( then, anyways...I LOVE coming home to Oregon!) That was one of the best trips I ever took anywhere! So here's to getting leied! ( and married too, I guess...LOL!)

I wish you both the very best and that you will be as happy always as you are today.
Marsha and Robin, I wish you the very best and happiness also. Ofcourse, yours was not a surprise since everyone was going over there for your wedding. At least, I know now to stay away from Hawaii, once is enough.
The pictures are great and I can imagine all of the flashing and mooning had the natives restless.
See you all Sunday at the V.F.W. Judy one special order of SOS comin' up.

Yeah Judy kept mooning the Island Boys. They started calling her "The Big MOOBA". Judy, what DOES "Big Mooba" mean anyway?
Hey Loren, I'll take my SOS plain on Sunday please. See you all there at 10am.

How about it big guy.. give us married ROWDYS something to shoot for. We're cravin' a Foster burger again.. I'll try not to fall on my face a week before hand.. I don't have those built in air bags I had last year at this time. Judy DeGrazia Blomsterberg THE ROWDYS
It's funny you mentioning those "double D's" as I was just back on page 158 doing a little reminiscing. We will again shoot for a late July Cruise Night 3, although I'll clear it with Leo, the owner, first.

It makes me feel good that here in CT everyone cares as if we are involved in each other's daily lives once again. Frank Frank boy. Where is he? Fingers can't type? Just send a note to let us know that you are doing better...And for you Jorge Llave, thank you for your mysterious philosophy. I'm not just stopping with Chapter 13 bucko - I'll return it when I'm more thoroughly enlightened. Thanks for caring. And finally, thanks John, for the CT community.
