Message: Hi all! Was just reviewing the pages of chatter around the time of the first cruise night and reminiscing...actually I was trying to scope out how many pages it took when they printed out the first 100 and presented them to John. Found no reference to the actual number of pages - rats. I'm stuck then with just a wild guess. I will, however, be there at Cruise Nite 3 to visit with the gang. Am picking Mom B up and joining with the other B so we can have the B girls there. Am looking forward to seeing any and all of you! Any other 74'ers going?? Save Mom and me a place in front with the Stonebrakers sis!!

Message: Tomorrow night at this time we'll be leaving Fosters..for pie and coffee.. something to top off that cheese burger and shake.. (Sat & Sun will be salad days again).. but before John Boy shuts down the site for the weekend, let me thank PAUL BRICKEY '54 - & LORRIE HERSEY STODDARD '70 - for purchasing their tickets today. As mentioned, I'll be bringing some PROM NIGHT flyers to Fosters and a list of names of the ticket buyers for all of you that can't seem to find that list on CT. Oh ya-one last note for the person who's panties are in a wad about "dates".. an alumni can also bring their "one night stands" if they wish.. I'll keep reporting the list as they come to me.. I have to be very politically correct these days--but you can't bring a "cigar".. no matter what. That's not considered a "date."

Message: Here's something we were discussing the other night...The Water Towers. Now, we've seen the pictures, and even mentioned them. But does anyone know why Hawthorne had one, Manhattan Beach, Long Beach had them, but not Inglewood, Hollywood, Westchester..the Valley? There must be a reason worth hearing about. And think of the logistics of them. See you tomorrow..j
Here's part of a picture of Hawthorne Highs first football team, and in the background is the water tower we 50's and early 60's people remember as kids. Hawthornes first water tower was about on the corner of Hawthorne Bl and Ballona Av (El Segundo Bl). I would say that Hawthorne had a water tower because it was an agricultural city, had water, and didn't want to buy it from someone else. Actually Hawthorne has, or had, about 3 water towers.

Message: Just for clarification I think that the contest should end at noon on Friday 06, 2001 PDT. That way I will have time to go through all of the messages and determine the "WINNER". Also Judy you might want to send a separate note to Leeroy to explain that, "above all be comfortable.." "No T-shirts." Means. He might come in his "All together". Only 134 days 'till prom. (But who's counting).
Now that's an ugly visual. Contest ends tomorrow at noon. Thanks Chris....

Message: Geeezo is right Betty.... Someone call 911 and get that guy a waaaaaaambulance....

Congrats to Jim (Howie)Schroeder for his recent entry to Grandfatherdom...Big weekend ahead there or be somewhere else...
John heres a pic of an old Chevys Inc. 58 panel truck that was quick. Was originally Dewey Webbers, Mike Weathers, Major Mufflers(as shown driven by Jerry Hale), and then HHS c/o 67' Lee Leonards...One big and nasty rat motor...Later Cougs..

Thanks Robin, I do remember that car. That thing had a couple of different motors in it as I recall.
The OTHER 58 Chevy was mine, and is about in the same place as the panel. It ran G/stock (348 with a 4 bbl) and was a class winner for a lot of weeks. The picture was taken in a bracket race. It looks like that Falcon won this round...... but not so.
Hope to see at least one of the owners of the 58 panel at Cruise Night tomorrow. I know I'll be there.
Thanks Robin.....

Message: Now let's see John, referring to "stillnotwelcome" (whoeverthatis- why don't people just say who they are...or ask a simple question?). Anyway, in Clinton-eze, referring to "all who attended HHS", It depends on what the definition of "attended" is? Does attended mean its OK if I went to a football game or a car show at HHS, or perhaps I went to a few classes but did not graduate, or I went to a few classes and did graduate? I don't know John. And I'm not sure about "who" either, shouldn't that be "whom", implying to "person or persons", if husbands, wifes, etc., are ALL invited? And what about ex-husbands and ex-wifes, you didn't mention those? John, I don't know, you better be more specific....this is really getting confusing.
Gary, Yes it is quite confusing isn't it. I think I can blame this whole thing on Judy, as she wrote it. I'll have Jim Sloey write it out in lawyer-EZE for you next time. That should clear it right up. Hope you're going to be here for Cruise Night and the reunion this weekend. See you then....

Message: Re: AUG 18TH - PROM NIGHT MASS EMAIL. I'm getting a lot of responses from the mass email sent out last weekend.. mostly about what the dress is for our PROM... and is PROM NIGHT part of the reunions.. here goes.
The dress is: dressy but comfortable..
Gals: something you'd wear to a class reunion is fine.. or even a semi formal if you wish.. pants suits are great..if that's what you like.
Fellas: A suit, sport coat or even a nice shirt and pants is fine.. above all be comfortable.. you have to dance the night away. No T-shirts. This is a dance.
Next question answered is.. No, the PROM is not part of the reunions.. however, there are a couple of them within a week of PROM NIGHT..
Aug 11th~'70-'73 reunion.
Aug 17th~'66 reunion.
The Grande Finale' is Aug 18th~PROM NIGHT.. open to all of HHS alumni and their date/spouse/significant other/pick up/alter ego/shack job/sugar baby/sugar daddy/sugar mama/siblings/parents/or just come solo.. (whew, told you this isn't easy..ya have to make everyone happy)
Judy ... On a quest

Thanks Judy. You're doing a bang up job on Prom Night. Just keep doing what you're doing.

Would you like some music to play also;-) Steve doesn't get off work till 5 so we won't be there till around 6:00 (He says he'll come if he doesn't have to do a 50-50 raffle). Save us those front row seats Sharon!! Chris, I'll bring the pin for you and I'm hunting down the banner that I made for homecoming. Hope I can find it with moving and all last summer. Come on all you mid '70's people, LET'S PARTY! Any word on a 25 year reunion for the class of '76?? Just curious.
Kathy, You and Steve won't have to do anything but mingle. This will be easy for you.
You mean YOU have that banner?? I looked all over for that one for the last Homecoming. I thought I lost it and you were gonna blame ME!! Don't worry about being a little late either, as everyone but Sharon Branigan and Mikey will be late. I know Janet's gonna have a hard time getting there before 6:30. Whenever you get there'll be fine.

I used your formula yesterday prior to your posting it so I figure I must be the winner. :-) I won't be at Cruise Night, but my best friend will be, Judy "Mac" McLean. I will expect her to pick up the prize for me. Thank you Judy ... thank you Chris! And you know what, Judy! I remember Camille Hill, too. She was a sophomore when I was a senior. Camille!

I do have a list of all of the guesses and will bring it to Fosters. Also Leeroy your second guess was closer than the first but only one guess to a Cougar... Hint someone might want to print one of the feedback pages to see how many printed pages it takes. John b. I thing your guess was for the entire Cougartown...

Message: Just a note about this weekend:
Friday is Cruise Night at Fosters. It will start at 5pm although I know lots of you won't be there until later. That's fine, but please plan on eating at Fosters. Our host, Leo Kim, has graciously allowed us to utilize Fosters for our Cruise Night, so let's reciprocate and have our dinner there.
There will be Cougartown T shirts on sale at Fosters for 19.00 each (save the 4 dollars shipping). Also if you know someone that doesn't have the Internet, but wants to go to the Prom, there'll be mail-in forms at Cruise Night and the 59-60-61 reunion. Just fill it out and mail it in.
Next is for all that are attending the 59-60-61 Reunion at the Cerritos Sheraton. Rich Sloan has planned an ice breaker get together over there from 8 to 11:30pm. You 59-60-61ers please plan on attending that function too.
This is going to be a full weekend for lots of early Cougs. Everyone have a great time and I'm sure we'll have lots to talk about next week. Thanks Cougs.....

Message: Chris, great contest. Everyone can stop guessing now, I have the right answer. Its simple if you follow a logical formula. Just add number of pages (300), plus the number of times car are mentioned in feedback (400), plus the number of times Judy has plugged the prom which is August 18 (200), plus the number of CT accordion players (56). The answer is 956. Am I right Chris?
Judy has only plugged the Prom 200 times??!! No wonder my guess WAY too high.
