Message: Sandy Hickey, I know the whereabouts of Mr. Cross. State your purpose on a private e-mail and I will be glad to turn your head in the right direction. It's . We know your name, give us some info. Were old and can't get up but would like to know you purpose. Dennis "The Mammal" Campbell, I put out the challenge to John B that I would kick his buns in any "pool" game. He retorted that he had beaten me in 1964, and my response should have been, "John I was in Spokane WA. in 1964". I think you're still dreaming about those wino derelicts that you claimed the crown from, according to the (heh, heh) trophys. Anyway Mammal and Big John, Kingy Guy... why don't you come "up here" and play your silly games. Last but certainly not least, DONNA BECKWITH, we enjoyed talking to you and yours, so much. It was a real Cougar kick in the buns to meet my first real "love" again (sorry Sandie this was 6th grade). Sloey...does Steve Andersen know how to talk? I know he can spell. All those degree's and such...but damn I could hit his fastball. Just tell him to poke a few keys and say hi! We love you COUGS. JAKE N JUDE! MAY THE COUGAR BE WITH YOU!
You know, all that week you were here and never ONCE mentioned how you were going to "Kick My Buns In Any Pool Game." You spent a couple of nights right here under my roof, actually sleeping but a wall away from my trophies........all was silent. NOW you're a couple of thousand miles away and all of a sudden you've become Willie Hoppe.
Sandy Hickey, I went to Hawthorne Christian with a Carol Ann Hickey; any relation?

Message: Walter email me your address. Anyone else, class of 66, need a new application, I'll get it out by friday, the email is correct above[without the the really it is]. John, John John, you have sank to an all time low of disgusting feedback responses. First if you mess with Robin, could get a foothold again, and second that picture is, well just take it down please. GEEZZZZZZZOOOOOO
First of all, Walter's email address is on the Alumni List (typical lawyer.....too much trouble to look it up)
Secondly, the judges for the "Tight Buns" contest wanted me to post Robin's derriere as an example to the younger Cougs. This shows what happens to the glutes went you're pushing 60, and overwork them by running on the beach every day. Thanks for allowing us to post the picture Robin. You are a giver.

We got the mammal big time and again because of CT..Later Cougs :o)
Thanks Robin, but we're not through yet. Lots more fun and surprises down the Ctown path so y'all stick around.
Yes, Dennis "Mammal" Campbell's surprise party came off without a hitch. Lotsa fun, thanks to Eileen and Jennifer; his wife and daughter. Great food, drinks and friendship too. I'm not sure I agreed with the vote on Robin winning the mens tightest buns contest but I guess I'll have to go along with the decision.
Janet, you voted for me didn't you??

Message: Awrite Mr. Baker (aka the OTHER Mom B.), you've had the weekend to think about it. Tell us how a PROFESSIONAL cheats on tests and gets away with it! I admit that we were terrible at it. I even got my tail chewed by a teacher for NOT cheating on a test once! (It's true. How sad is that?) So stand forth and deliver. They can't flunk you now.
Mike, if I told you how I did it, I'd have to kill you. Actually I do have a cheating story. In Auto Shop, my Junior year, our teacher was Ron Halladay, the Cee Football coach. He was a great guy and I think he took the "babysitting" auto shop class just so he would have an extra 7 dollars on his check every week. Anyway, we'd have a test every Monday, but on Friday he would pass out the answers to the test, ie. 1)rear view mirror; 2)lefty loosy righy tighty; 3)lug nut; 4)white wall tires; etc.
All we had to do was memorize the test and we get an "A". Well my best friend who shall remain nameless......OK, it was Mike Shay. He didn't have time to memorize the answers as he was too busy hangin' with the 22 year olds at Frosties, so he just took the answer sheet to class on Monday and started copying them onto the test paper. It took Coach Ron about 2 seconds to catch him cheating and that was it. I think it was Thursdays that we got to watch past Indianapolis races for the whole hour in Auto Shop. Well, Cheater Mike got to spend the rest of the year in the Library on Indy day.
Nice goin' Mike. Today Mike Shay is Vice President of one of the oldest and largest Die Casting firms in SoCal. In 1961 however, he was just another pimply faced 4-4 plan Senior who couldn't wait to get to Frosties and hang out with the older guys.

Message: ok, I thought I put in my 70's story.. It was spring one year back in 1975 and my bud Mike and I were thinking of things to do and we came up with an idea of egg bombing a friend's house. Being late and all we decided to meet like military fashion at o600 hours behind the church's sign on Doty and 118th street. Next morning I get up quietly not to arouse the enemy in the household and get some breakfast. The sun was barely over the horizon and upon checking my clock it was time to head on out. I put on my camo jacket with staff sergeant stripes and filled my pockets with eggernades. Getting the needed transportation I had to stealthily move about without sounding the alarm. Being ever so watchful for any enemy friends or foe activities I reach my destination. It was Waiting and watching for any sign of foul play behind the sign requires knowledge as to not to alert the enemy's neighbors.......then......the clock was ticking.......
Boy, can't wait to hear how this one comes out......have a fun weekend Cougs and be careful out there; someone might be stalking you with a pocketful of grade AA large.

Message: Hey John, How do you come up with all those cool visuals for us? When I saw SW&C Willys and TI's four engine Buick dragster in my last post it was like a dream come true. I'm totally impressed!!! To DEANO, who wrote "the 40 is still around. robin's bro danny has it and i remember working on it alot." I would be very interested in the history of the coupe since Robin Petty bought it back in '62. I would have e-mailed you direct but you didn't include your address. Wayne Brasheres(?) and I used to cruise up to the A&W in his '59 Chevy that had hydraulic lifts installed in it. He would approach the driveway while the car was dropped to about an inch from the street then flip a switch and raise the front end way up in the air as we entered then the rear would go up, pull in and drop it down to 1" above the pavement i.e. REAL LOW. This was quite the spectacle in those days. Then I remember backing into the very same stalls that John has a picture of in the "Last day of the A&W" photo. Thanks again John for this web page. Lanny
You're welcome Lanny. I remember Wayne, but I think it was from Hawthorne Christian.

Message: Cougar Capers & Con Jobs, Part II: A lot of the students that my friend handed copies of the midterm out to were football players that were in an earlier class period than mine. I think that he was trying to impress them with what a big inside operator he was. I was also offered a copy of the test but declined due to a fear of cheating that had been hardwired into my brain. Both of my parents were teachers and they had me convinced that cheating would result in spontaneous human combustion. So feeling somewhat foolish and parent whipped, I studied for my German III midterm. The day of the test I arrived at school. My buddy comes running up, wide eyed and out of breath. "Grahamer is on to us! Someone I didn't give the test to squealed and Grahamer changed the test! It's REALLY hard! All of the football players got 'D's and 'F's! They're threatening to kill me!" When I walked into class Mr. Grahamer was eyeing me with a steely, narrow eyed look that I had never seen on him before. Obviously I had been tainted by my association with his TA. I took the test and when the student correcting my test reported a score of B+, he rechecked it himself, suspecting more conspiracy. My grade stood and I was exonerated. My friend escaped death by football squad, but received a D- for the semester as TA. ** Have a great weekend, Cougs!

Message: Cougar Capers & Con Jobs, Part I: My junior year ('72 - '73) I was taking German III from Mr. Grahamer. My best friend at the time was well ahead on his credits and was due to graduate early as a junior. As part of his program to get out of HHS early (and on to his six year bachelorate program) he was TA for Mr. Grahamer. This consisted of helping with the grunt work of teaching. Compiling grades, collecting homework, mimeographing test sheets. It was this last task that would prove too tempting for my friend. When midterms rolled around Mr. G asked my buddy to copy off x number of copies of the mid term test for later that week. In a moment of weakness and bad judgment, my buddy copied off x plus one. This extra copy went into his pocket. There are lots of bad ideas that seem like good ideas at the time. Like when I tried to impress the girl that I had adolescent hormone surges for, by launching a "Closet Queen" contest for her and posting campaign posters all over campus. *SIGH* Predictably, she was not impressed. Likewise my friend, in copying off the German III midterm and handing it out to his buddies, was showing really poor judgment. More to come...

Message: If I had submitted the feedback that was attributed to me I would have to be pretty dense to believe a joke could be played after advertising the fact. I do believe the original email was sent to my daughter Sue, who probably passed it down to two very good story tellers, Robin Hood and Mike Backus. Will the guilty party please stand up? On another vein, Joe Mailander has a fantastic story about an event that happened on a journalism field trip and Sue has a great date story. I heard both stories at Konnie Krislocks 70th birthday party last weekend in Newport. So many stories untold, unshared....

Please keep talking about those early days along with your current events. Who remembers Stone, Woods & Cooke? I was at Lions the first time they ran their Willys/Olds. I think the first run was 134mph. Just a trial run. McKewen & Adams, Don Garlits, Tommy Ivo's, was it four Buicks?, Pete Robinson, etc.? Who remembers Alan Hauge's '39 Pontiac?

No, actually it's 71 degrees right here in Lomita. I just got back from the Valley and it's pushing 100 out there. We woulda stopped, but we couldn't stand the smell. Please have someone move that ranch downwind of I-5.
