Not to mention the nasty poodle chew. He also makes a mean Spam enchilada. Ando I love ya man!! Sloey, Give me a "F". What's that spell? Sweet Lorraine indeed.

Message: I'm taking my life in my hands by entering this feedback as John Baker warned me that he has even "more" lovely pics of me as ammunition if I'm not a good girl.. Waaaaaa... I digress.. To all my good friends, ROWDY & UNROWDY.. Janny and I want to thank you for all your cards and good wishes. This last few months have been just the best for us and all of you have made it so. All this never has to stop. It only takes getting into feedback and/or joining in on the functions to make it happen.. Of course, we fell in love and got married as did Marsha and Robin, but we don't expect you all to be quite that "ROWDY". Now, as an added treat, I'm donating one of my precious "glow in the dark rosaries" as a prize at the Irvine "Connie Jax" BBQ. How's that for a little incentive. Maybe next time I'll organize a Catholic retreat.. (never could keep still through those) Thanks again and we love you all. Not to forget that Alan Hauge has a birthday coming up Monday..HAVE A GREAT ONE BUNKY. Hope to see you Sunday at the VFW BREAKFAST~~Mo Trott is whipping up a Heavenly Choc Cake for ya.. Only 2 jars of mayo in this one. (we're on a diet)

Message: Petey said "COOL" John, she wasn't complaining! Tell him Petey, oh never mind he wouldn't get it. he is from that other generation but we are all cougars. And where is Johnny Mac? He can fill up hundreds of pages talking about his legs. And I apologize to anybody that was offended by my last diatribe. Heading for the wherehouse got to get Country Joe and the Fish's latest "Don't give fraki ain't fightin' in Paki!" Did anybody know that Country Joe is a DA in Northern California?
See ya!

Jim I didn't know you were a "Country Joe and the Fish" fan.
And it's one, two, three,
What are we fighting for ?
Don't ask me, I don't give a damn,
Next stop is Vietnam;
And it's five, six, seven,
Open up the pearly gates,
Well there ain't no time to wonder why
Whoopee! we're all gonna die.
Were you at Woodstock?? Also you're the only person I know that was anti-war and pro-soldier. Are you sure you didn't just have that beard so you could get into those parties where the girls danced topless on the tables? Ahh well I love you man; we're all Cougs to the bone.

Message: Petey lets not tease Ando too much when he isn't here to defend himself. After all, our past lives would never have been so culturally interesting without him. He still reigns as king of the gold coast! The last time I saw him he reminded me of Orson Welles but Steve Stevenson thinks he looks more like Bugs Bunny. We love you Ando. Gary, once you play in the IB golf tourney your life will change forever. I would come down for that but all of the IB Darryl's would worry about whether I would take them to the cleaners like I do in the horse shoes, ask Bart. If he starts whining tell him to suck it up. You will probably see Kurt Pettlon, Ronny B., Dennis Higgins among others. Tell them that I refuse to let the IB surf trip die, and to start preparing for it. You are definitely inbred and are invited to go by me. A past Grand Poobah and IB historian. Long Live Lucille Hearn!

Message: Just a quick Hi! Been very busy lately, had a sort of promotion, and a lot more responsiblity added. I wish I could be there for the "mini reunion" but have to work. I've been keeping in touch with a couple of Cougs who, during school we were very close, and caused the staff at HHS a little heartburn. Thank goodness we never got caught, or we might not have graduated. We had a couple of good laughs, and now realize we don't regret the mischief we caused in school.
The only time I ever got caught doing anything was after I graduated. The next year I went to the Homecoming game, just for the hell of it. I was standing down by the end of the field, closest to the snack stands. I was lighting up a cigarette (yes I used to have that nasty habit), when good old Mr. Nelson (then vice principal), walked up to me. He grabbed the cigarette, and started yelling at me. He told me he had waited for a long time to catch me doing something, and now he had. That I was going to be suspended, but first I had to report to his office on Monday morning.
You can imagine the look on his face when I politly told him, "Gee Mr. Nelson, I would love to see you on Monday, but I graduated from here last year. I am now going to college." Then as I walked off I lit another cigarette.
By the way I did not purchase the alumni directory, I felt it was kind of a rip. God help me, I know someone will be pissed off at me for saying that. But, the woman who took the information on the phone told me one price, then when I got the invoice it was four times as much. I don't know if anyone else had that happen to them, but be careful.
Oh well, I guess I have caused someone out there enough heartburn for one evening. So I will say goodnight.

Peggy, I'm not sure but I don't think the directory is even printed yet, let alone for sale. The cost of the directory is about 60 bucks.

Yeah, the Hawaii Forestry Service had a call into Oregon State, trying to pick the brains of the Mount St Helens people. They wanted me to face inland so when it blew, it wouldn't mess up the surfing and broadbill fishing. Unfortunately I wiped out this years sugar cane crop.

Message: Well you hit the nerve and I got to say it! The picture of "SLOEY RAIDERS" is a snapshot of the era that my group went through, torn between years of loving our country, celebrating our heritage, wanting to really believe that we were the good guys. Then Vietnam came and a new "ugly American" reared its greedy head and sacrificed 50,000 of my contemporaries, thousands to a lifetime of nightmares and 100,000's more to lifetime injuries, one of whom is pictured in "Sloey Raiders!" Country Joe said it best "What are we fighting for?" That picture is a picture of our statement to Nixon, Johnson both Democrats and Republicans, We aren't blind and we won't be led just because you said so. I have a real spot in my heart for the guys that went to Vietnam because most didn't have a choice and were misled as to what was happening there. Did anyone remember that Flying Tigers airlines did most of the troop transports? Who was the major shareholder? Lady Bird Johnson, that's what we were doing there. Most of us that were fortunate not to have gone, did so not because we didn't love our country or because we wouldn't be willing to die for it or our loved ones, most of us avoided it because in our hearts we knew this wasn't right that we as a nation were not right, and I believe history has shown that we were correct in our assessments. So all you "Sloey Raiders" in the picture and those of us not in the picture, don't forget the lessons of the past, do not be afraid to stand up for what you believe EVER! And finally for all you guys that went, God Bless you, you are heroes in every sense of the word! But remember, folks like the "Sloey Raiders" are the reason we aren't still fighting that "incursion" today. And yes at the time that picture was taken, circa 1970, I looked just like the "Sloey Raiders!" With that said I hope we can all just get along!

Thank you Rodney King Sloey, now let me help you down off your soap box.

Message: Marsha.. you were just tooo kind. "Pustule" is not exactly what I would call that festering case of herpes that John boy sported from one end of the island to the other.. and you know what they say about herpes... "Nothing is forever..except herpes." I read in the Maui Gazette that the stretch of beach in which our John Boy was snorkeling has been closed until further notice. So much for payback!! God, it's good to be ROWDY QUEEN!! And now Lori Padelford, here's the answer to your question kid as to how to nab that man after 9 years of shakin'.. go pee in a sink, wash your feet in a men's urinal and whatever you do, "don't cook" for some reason men find this just irresistable and will marry you in a heartbeat (go figure men). One last note~bring your donated canned goods to VFW on Sunday. We just found out that this is a monthly drive that never ends..and us ROWDYS have nothing but canned goods. It's a walk in the park for us. See you all this weeked..CAR SHOW...BBQ...VFW... Marsha, looks like we eat again!!!!

Message: Lori Padelford, let me re-phrase my comment. I find now that the same people who were, shall we say, "Stuck-Up" in high school are still the same way today. I post every once in a blue moon over on Classmates and, those same people are still the same after all these years. It comes across in their posts! Different breed than the HHS Alumni. I sense a lot of connection here and closeness and, I wish the "Warriors" were like that. A few times I tried using my zany sense of humor over there and they just did not get it. I was snubbed And they wonder why they can't get a reunion together over there. Boy! I can set them straight My Class of 1971 did not have a 25 yr reunion and I don't believe they are organizing a 30 yr. Just don't seem to be interested. They all need swift kicks in the behind and a few reality checks. I did not mean to imply everyone who went to West was stuck-up.. Oh my God, that would mean, I was stuck-up too...Yuck!
Gather up the Warriors and send them over here. We'll slap their funny bone silly. I notice the same thing as I have gone to my class reunions over the years. People change on the outside, but are the same as in High School on the inside. Thanks Kathy......

Message: CONGRATULATIONS!!! Here's wishing the newlyweds much love and happiness always. Quick question, what do I have to give Mario to get us hitched after almost nine years of shackin'? I think at the car show or picnic the c-town guys need to take him aside and give him a little talkin to. Whadda ya think John???? Kathy Frankforter, I went to HHS for my first two years of high school and then my parents moved and I had to go to West High the last two. I wasn't stuck up then or now. But I do understand that there were lots of people who were. What kept me grounded was only taking 4 classes at West so I was gone by 12:00 and then jumping in my car and going to HHS to visit with all my friends. Everyday, rain or shine I would go. I missed HHS so much thats why I am such a true Cougar and not a Warrior. King John, saw your input about why the picnic is so late and I have been wondering that myself. That only leaves about 2 hours for a good rowdy party.
Lori, If you haven't given Mario "all there is to give" in 9 years of shackin', then I don't know what we c-town guys could possibly add unless maybe we could bring a shotgun.
I can't get an answer on the BBQ from anyone. Are we supposed to show up at 6pm, or is that when we eat? Gary, I think this is really your party isn't it? Can you give us an answer please?

If you have comments or suggestions, please email me at
