Message: Just received email from TOM KLINGENHAGAN asking me, "If he rides his HARLEY 900 miles down to PROM NITE..can he purchase a ticket at the door..." Well Tom, this is sorta like the question "Where does a thousand lb gorilla sit"--answer: "Anywhere he wants"..... If you're on a Harley..blazing the road for 900 miles with bugs on your teeth and your in a leather tux in the heat of August..... YES!! I think I'll personally sell that ticket to you at the door.. (whew, this isn't easy at all) And as for all you hog lovin' boys at the PROM, I don't want to see the room clear out so you can talk to Tom about the size of his engine..or what kinda mileage it gets-etc.. but on second thought..we're going back in time for PROM NITE..and let's see here--I think the girls were allowed to dance with the girls back then--sooo what the hey, it's OK after all.. Now, for my brother, Andrew, that just got enough memory in his puter to pull up CT... you only have 300 more catch up pages to read and your with us. (still playing big sister)
OK John..We'll hold 1 ticket out for TOM (HARLEY)KLINGENHAGAN.
Tilly Noodleman... on a quest

Speaking of hog lovin', I bet the Ding Dong sisters will dance with Tom.

Message: To the Queen of the Rowdys and to her "quest in vain". When I moved to Oregon 27 years ago people from California were the ENEMY. They claimed we "californicated" their precious state and we really were not encouraged to stay. (There were even bumper stickers stating just that.) Now 27 years later I too have become an Oregon snob. I admitt it. Come VISIT anytime. As for prom night the culture shock might be too much for us Oregonians. We'll just have to send Phil Wow represent the Great Northwest. After all you have seen him naked. See you in the future.

Message: Greetings from Mendocino County - 150 north of San Francisco CA. My sister, Suzanne, found the Cougartown site and practically leaped through my email box with news of it.
Strolling through the site has brought up crisp memories - but from under such a stack of years that it nearly seems like the memories are from someone else's life. Hmmmmmm....

Greetings fellow 62er Sharon J. Glad you've found Cougartown and hope you connect with some long lost HHSers.

SO glad you are doing SO well and SO soon, Don DiTomasso!

This I have got to see! And as far as Judy's excellent effort to recruit the Oregon bunch including the Hoods, COME ON YOU GUYS! Get with it! Sign up and get that check in the mail. And you know what else, Judy-Wudy???? We STILL do NOT have either one of the McQuitties...oops! sorry! McQuinnys...McQ@#!!% Well, you know who I mean!!!

Message: Hey Big Kellie Currie..well, girl, don't mince words..say what you mean--are you coming to PROM NITE or not.. Looks like I can't even get the Oregon Hoods to commit to a ticket for Aug 18's PROM.. Have I lost the campaign in Oregon.. well I'm going to call Phil (WOW) Christiana today.. and I don't want all you gals changing your mind when I get him down here. Philly owes me-and I've got too much on him for him to say no-I've seen him naked. As for Chris Hood-are you coming or not!! "Big winds come from empty caves" And BTW-where has my ALAN HAUGE been lately. (boy, this isn't easy at all) One last note, Sandie Tully and I have a date to meet Betty Bell in front of the Marriott for a little shot out of Betty's flask.. I'd say by 10:15 we old gals will be doing the "mashed potatoes" again.. and I happen to know that Maureen Manning Desmore can still mash from one side of the room to the other..(I have it on video) Last note, John boy.. hope you're feeling better today, but not to worry, the ROWDYS have made a special dish and we'll be over to nurse you back to health.. and this time, answer the door.. Judy in disguise...
Not another can of PEA BROTH!!! Hey I'm a......feeling lots better now....REALLY!!! No need to bring anything........ah.....HONEST!!

Message: Thanks for the scanner input. I know it's hard to believe that people can actually change and become better. but Bebop has done just that and I'm proud of him. all this talk of music. the very best, i mean too cool, why before there time was Peter Greens Fleetwood Mac. this was before the chicks had to get in there and ruin a terrific blues band. My Cuz Timmy Hood gave me a CD live from the BBC from 1969-70. Now there is music. Robin I just read a study that you can't actually lose brain cells. You grow new ones. So for those of you who may think you have lost brain cells just look for the new ones, they are there. I certainly found mine, i think! I was in the Greatest and I don't remember any nudity. maybe it wasn't always a nude bar. Then again maybe i need to look for that brain cell. Peace Kelley. Oh and Judy does hold out mean. NOT,I MEAN NOT GOING TO PROM NIGHT. if so yes i'm a hold out. Anita are you really going? ouch.

Message: Walter Holt, Brother Bill can still do a mean Soupy Sales Shuffle. I watched him perform the shuffle on Christmas day for our mother (she asked if he could still do it). I think Bill should lead off the first dance at the PROM with the "shuffle". I on the other hand would rather do the Hustle.

Little Bob is wearing a bowtie and has a funny smirk on his face. I understand that Webster and Jimmy Weldon now travel around the country giving motivational talks to large corporations. I wish they would come by my work, because some of the clowns over here don't have a very good sense of humor. Oops!

Message: While reviewing the COUGAR, VOL. IX NO. 14 JANUARY 5, 1962, I came across a column titled "TV Dedications". I found it amusing. The following is a partial listing of the anonymous dedications.
"Funday Funnies" - Starla Cary
"Invisible Man" - Mr. Means
"Maverick" - Mike Kelly
"Dennis the Menace" - Dennis Lord
"Ladies! The Continental" - Les Johnson
"Soupy Sales" - Rose Leven
"Wild Bill Hickok" - Butch Morris
"Thriller" - Ron Petch
"Surfside 6" - Terry Mason
"Wanderlust" - John Johnson
"Who Do You Trust" - Tom Boles
"Continental Classroom" - Mr Gaier
"Twilight Zone" - Semester Exams
"To Tell the Truth" - Pat Achen
"Beat the Odds" - Gary Miller

OK so no one knew it was Webster Webfoot and Jimmy Weldon. I met Jimmy at a Civitan meeting about 6 years ago. Nice guy too and could still do a mean WW.

Message: Thought I would comment on a couple of things. The song that was in "Play Misty For Me" was by Roberta Flack,..but it was her first hit "First Time Ever I Saw Your Face." (And while we're at it, "Killing Me Softly" was written about singer/song writer Don McLean). And "Muskrat Love" was recorded and released first NOT by America, but by the person who wrote it who was Willis Alan Ramsey. Also, Michael Martin Murphey who sang "Wildfire"...was in a group in the late sixties on the same record label as the Monkees (Cologems)...called The Lewis & Clarke Expedition, (he was Lewis)..which they played at an assembly at HHS in 1967.

Hoops in the morning before class and again at lunch at HIS. Good old Mr. Sweeney. What a character. I've seen a number of other names I recognize on this site and will eventually get around to seeing if any of them have any stories to tell. Got a copy of the alumni directory, what a walk down memory lane. I'll have to get out the old El Molinos to put some faces to some of the names. Take care.

There's more o' ME to go around YOU on that 12 sq" o' dance floor! How come no pictures of you Bobby? RAMMA LAMMA

Kelly's always been shy at parties (ask anyone) and Petey's been committed for years...They just don't let her out for extended periods. Besides we heard that after you Californians finish your second Shirley Temple, you start whining that it's sleepy time. Who would we have to make fun of the second half of the prom? I guess we could look at rerun videos of John dancing. Oh and we have a sweet kissing spot up here too. You're welcome to use it anytime (call my sister Marsha a pig will ya). Petey, Hoody, you guys be kind to those McNugget boys, they're the sensitive types.
