Message: Hey King John - I wanted you to hear from another voice of the mid-70's. So here I am checking in. Actually, I want to see if you've scanned in my senior picture from the El Molino. I didn't like it very much back then; don't like much more now. But you don't really have any alternative shot of me, do you? By the way, the other day, I got my bank statement and my check for $10 for annual dues STILL hasn't cleared. Have you misplaced it? Should I put a stop payment on it and send you another one? Or have you just been way too busy with other stuff to get it to the bank? We Love ya MAN!
Hi Ingrid, Yes, I will get your checks in the bank real soon. Also I am 10 pages from getting your El Molinos back to you. Thanks for your patience.

Message: Hi Cougs! I saw the post regarding those old Beach Boys albums. You'll be glad you went out and found them! I get really sentimental in June and dig out my old albums for some summer tunes. While going through our vinyl collection I found Murray Wilson's album! It must be something either Randy had when we got married or something we picked up over the last 22 years. Wonder if it's any good. After watching the movies I don't know if I care to listen! By the kids think it's hilarious when I talk about "albums". Boy they can really make you feel old! Always a Cougar! P.S. Anyone who likes the Beatles, Saturday, July 22nd at the Crown and Anchor in Thousand Oaks there will be a great Beatles band playing. We'll be there having fun..if you're in the area stop by. If you need directions drop me an email.

Message: Matt look so familiar! This is freaking me out! Did you know or hang with my brother, Mike and/or his close buds in high school? They also graduated in 1974 like you did. His close buds were Rick Porter and John Field. Also, our neighbors in our apartment building were Fred Austin and Pete Photos, Pete has 2 sisters, Marcia and Nicki. Like I said, you look so familiar... did you or do you know or hang with any of the people I mentioned?

Message: Hey John, can't remember who you all said was responsible for the dancing jukebox, and too damned lazy to scroll back and look, but whoever it is....THANK YOU!!!!!
I was pleased to see that it also had songs on it from the years I attended HHS....1974-1978. A lot of those songs brought back so many good memories for me. Anyone in here who really knows me knows that I am a music FANATIC!!!!!! I am always into it, tape stuff for people, belong to many music related BB's etc. and that music also helped me to check on an artist whose music from that time means a hell of a lot to me, Cat Stevens. His first album, Mona Bone Jakon, is hard to find ( so I have been told) and most of it is featured in one of my all time favorite movies, Harold and Maude. Well, I went to CD Now, and guess what? Not only is Mona Bone Jakon available, but so is all his other early stuff I love so well...Teaser and the Firecat and Tea For the Tillerman, who also has some songs from it on Harold and Maude. Now, I can order this music, go and buy Harold and Maude ( which I should of done long ago) and play these C.D.'s! Thanks, to whoever did that jukebox! You just made my day (maybe even week) and things for me have been pretty shitty as of late!

Hi Anita, It was ME who made the dancing Jukebox and the Jukebox page. The tunes listing was put together by Allan Sniffen, who has the great WABC website.

Message: Hello everyone. Question to Gary Lent. Why are the hockey nationals in Canada? Good luck and watch out for the parents. Wasn't that such a tragedy that happened this weekend. John, I really enjoy Cougartown. I still read it everyday, even if I don't post often. I also just wanted something posted that wasn't from a 60's graduate. Any other 70's people out there? Matt
It runs in cycles doesn't it Matt. Thanks for being out there.

Message: Hi John, Just found the HHS website today. You have done a great job designing the site, have not seen better. I also noticed Keith Pulcifer's e-mail and made contact with him. As you might remember, Keith, Don Scheliga And I were the best of friends during our years at HHS.
I reviewed the entire site and had allot of memories (good and bad) return. I did attend the 20 year reunion but not the thirty year.
Say, do you remember the night you raced your 58 348 chevy against Hartmans mom's 60 Chevy Impala? I believe we promise to keep it to ourselves.
Hope to hear from you.
Bryan Ellerman

Hey Brian, How're you doin'? Man the 62ers are just taking over the Feedback Page this week.
Glad you found Cougartown and made contact with Keith. Don Scheliga is also on the Alumni List, so be sure to give him a shout too. Welcome aboard Brian, and hope to see you at our 40th.
About that "Mommys car" and my 58 Chev. I think I must've missed a couple of shifts that night. Thanks again Brian and stay tuned.

Message: Hi John, With all this talk about our 40th class reunion, makes Larry and I wonder what happened to the class of 60's 40th reunion? There is only 5 months left of this year and no word yet, does anyone know if Richard and Mary Sloan are planning the reunion, as they have in the past years. I'm sure there are other 1960 classmates who wonder what has happened! Always a Coug!!
Hi Loretta, I haven't heard a thing. If I do, I'll pass it on. Robin, do you have Rich's new phone number?

Message: Yeah, John, I also remember after graduation in '63 we were lucky enough to have the Lawrence Welk Orchestra led by Myron Floren (sp) as at least part of the entertainment at the Palladium. Funny, I really don't remember the music ..... Wunerful, wunerful......
"Ah Turn Off Ah Dah Bubble Machine Ah".
Speaking of that, does anyone remember those bubble machines inspired by Lawrence Welk, that would blow tons of bubbles automatically??

Message: I really think it was Lawrence Welk's orchestra at the Palladium Party. I don't know who arranged that, remember that it was a whole bunch of schools that went there. Was it the Centinela Valley Union High School District? For our Senior Prom we did much better for band selection. Can you ever forget Sandy Nelson playing "MISTY" as a drum solo. There was romantic music to remember for a lifetime. Sorta seems like we had our prom and grad party bands switched around doesn't it?
I know Morningside was there along with us, but I have no idea who the other schools were.

Message: I have a confession to make. On July 4th I came to the realization that I did not have one single Beach Boy record, tape, or C.D. This of course was not acceptable so I, without delay and a great deal of enthusiasm, drove off to the local music store and purchased not one, but two used Beach Boy vinyl 33's full of their earliest tunes. But come to think of it there's a lot of other groups I don't have recordings of either. But then those guys didn't go to HHS.
Congratulations Larry, confession is good for the soul. I hope your life will be much better now that you've purchased a couple of scratchy vinyl BB discs. I know I love to "Pop and Click" to the oldies myself.

Message: Is this a Roll Call for the class of '62 or what? Sure doesn't seem like we should be coming up on the 40th reunion year so soon. Seems like only yesterday that we were rehearsing our graduation exercise and looking forward to Lawrence Welk's Orchestra (Under the direction of Myron Floren) at the Palladium Party. Dang, I haven't made a class function since then. Hope I can make this next one. I have one of those jobs that requires vacation plans ten months in advance for May and June. By the way, if anyone needs a steam bath, Southeast Alabama is hot and humid this summer.
Myren Floren?!! Is that who we were listening to in 62??

Message: Well Cougs, I drove past our old high school yesterday, and although it didn't look quite as bleak as I imagined from feedback, it's a whole lot different than "way back when". Actually had Jim down in LA (it helped that we were part of a surprise birthday party in the Gold Cup Room of the Turf Club at Hollywood Park races yesterday). He survived, but I may never get him down there again. Had a great dinner at The Warehouse in Marina Del Rey last night and lunch at Captain Kidd's in Redondo today. I'm about 30 pages behind on feedback, it will take me awhile to catch up. Hope everyone is doing great! The Royal Flogger
AH yes!! The Turf club.....takes me back to Senior Prom night. Actually that was the last time I was in the Turf Club. I wish you would have called while you were here.
