Message: Lyle - Just to fill in one of the trivial pursuit blanks. How about Brokaw for Mr. Somethingerother. Also, I see you're in Roswell. I married a nice Spanish Catholic girl from the big city of Espanola, NM. Not much more than a burger and gas stop on the way to Taos. We have a house in ABQ and have just sold another last month that we owned in SF (That's Santa Fe not San Francisco). I know what's a Californian doing owning property in NM and living in MN? I must have had a bout with dyslexia when I was deciding where to put down when I returned from Europe. That's not it but does make for a good story at happy hour.

Message: Steve Rice. Wow. I haven't thought of him in forever and a day. Him, and Dobie (Gielish?). We did "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" together, with, let's see, Jill Jackson (Nurse Ratchet), Tesa Dallons (Camdy, the hooker with a heart of gold), Chris Sanford (Dr. Spivey), Leo Zaldivar (Martini), Don Somethingorother (He had only one good eye - I remember being in a car he was driving and worrying we were gonna get creamed on the side he couldn't see). Steve played McMurphy, Dobie was The Chief, and I was Mr. Harding. We had a blast. Steve always struck me as just a real nice guy. Tesa was about the sweetest girl I'd ever met. Dobie was....well, Dobie was Dobie! I got bit by the acting bug with that show, went on to do "Jesus Christ Superstar" that summer over at Leuzinger (and they even let me sing a song - hah!), and then worked for 10 years solid at the Roswell Community Little Theatre.

Message: Dan J., With a slight twinge of regret, I must agree with you. Slipping is now my middle name, and I do not remember that night. I will say that my Sophomore year at HHS was a bummer, broke my collar bone playing Soph. football vs Morningside. Most of my time was spent at the Manhattan Beach pier after work, Babs Dairy on the corner (almost) of Inglewood and Rosecrans, no longer there. Dan, did you go with Steve and myself to hang with the Cheeks in the other HB? Huntington Beach? Do you remember one of Brian's many girlfriends, Carrie is her name. Tall, blonde, tan and gorgeous. Carrie and one of Steve's girlfriends, Lisa Eagleston, borrowed (stole) my car, 68 Camaro, for a joyride and left Steve and myself on foot for a weekend. After my initial tirade, they were scared of me for the rest of that summer. Well Dan, I guess I have selected memory.

Message: John and Janet, It is my rule that only after the six month mark of an intimate relationship is one allowed to go into my purse and only to retrieve the keys and only if for the purpose of taking care of ME! By that time in the courtship I've hidden all my secret stuff in the bottom drawer of the linen closet. But NEVER and I mean NEVER open the bathroom door when she's in there with the door closed. That's why I have a lock on mine. Don't answer my phone unless your name is on the bill and don't sleep over more than the weekend nights unless you're paying the mortgage. Simple little rules. Easy to follow. Oh yeah, one more.....put the toilet seat down! Now kiss and make up....Prom nite is around the corner.

First they "accidentally" erase your whole email address list.. so what could be next.. accidentally poisoning that much needed cup o' coffee in the morning? I happen to know that Marsha had to yank out the fishing line from her weed wacker so that Robin wouldn't leave her garden "flowerless." Men!! you have to watch um alllllll the time. I say this with much love, Janny's in the dog house. BTW, today is the first day of August and PROM NIGHT is in August.. If this keeps up, there'll be boys on the west side of the ballroom and girls on the east.. sounds a lot like a Catholic school dance. Now, don't forget that I'll be handing out some GLOW IN THE DARK ROSARIES for all those Catholic school kids showing up... Ahhhh what an incentive. Who says I don't know how to work a Prom!
Judy, thanks for smoothing it over......

Message: Jill & DJ - The first person that came to mind when you said BIG & CURLY HAIR was my good buddy Sal D'ericco. Haven't heard nor seen from him for too many years but understand he's working (I said working not an inmate) at Pelican Point Prison. I'm sure though that it wouldn't have been him since I was usually with him when beer was involved. Talk about hair! I think he started shaving at 6 years old and buying our beer when we were in 6th grade. Steve Rice might be a good candidate though. I had an opportunity to get together with Steve here in MN a couple years back for a beer or two and some memory lane walking. Unfortunately, haven't heard from him either for a few years. Sal, Steve and any of the old GANG if you're out there look me up. And the rest of the Class of '77, come on, let's get chatty!

Message: I just had a flashback that y'all might find amusing. I think it was at the beginning of '77 when the California Legislature passed that a person became a legal adult at age 18. Well, I had turned 18 in January of my Senior year, and it came down that as an adult, 18 year olders no longer needed notes from their parents when they were sick, that they could now write their own. I remember playing hooky one day and writing on the note that Lyle Tucker was absent as he had come down with a case of Bubonic Plague, but that he was returning as he had gotten better. I brought it up to that window and handed it to the poor lady who had to deal with these things. She read it, gave me the most withering look I think I've ever received, stamped it and handed it back to me with a grunt. Hah! God knows how many cockamamie excuses she ended up having to deal with!
So, are you feeling better now, Lyle??

Message: I agree with JB2 about the going into the purse thing - I have trained my hubby not to go there and as they were growing up, my sons were like trained. With me its a making a mess thing. I have my purse arranged in just a certain way and if it gets unarranged, I am very unhappy! A couple of weeks ago we were driving in Illinois where they make you pay to use the roads and I asked my hubby to get my wallet out of my purse so we could pay the toll - if he could have found some tongs to use to go into my purse, he probably would have used them (it was pretty funny, really). Well, almost ready for Prom Night - got to drop my date's suit at the cleaners ....
Thanks Sharon, see you on the 18th. I won't go into her purse EVER again.

Message: I remember the dance shows in the late fifties and early sixtys because Jim Peppers and I raced out of 6th period, drove like crazy down La Brea to Hollywood to KCOP channel 13, every day to dance on them. We, along with 300 other couples from all over L.A. tried out for the Wink Martindale show and we became regular daily dancers in 1960. There were 10 regular couples chosen with guest schools joining in on different days. We started dancing on Sat. nights at P.O.P also. Then Wink left and Bob Eubanks hosted both shows. Thats when the New Beach Boys appeared, as guests, one Sat Night. P.O.P was torn down some years later. After Bob Eubanks left Lloyd Thaxton took over. We danced only a short time after Lloyd came. There were some great times from that experience. We (Regulars) made guest appearances at different High schools, recieved fan mail, and even signed autographs. Can you imagine someone cleaning out an old autograph book and saying Jim Peppers, Sandie Tully, who in the heck were they!! The only recollection of Al Jarvis I can remember was a tryout in the parking lot of Stellinos Market on Inglewood Ave. Probably for his Dance Party Show. My Brother Brian just became a Grandpa today. Ian Collin Tully. I'm still trying to get him to join us at the Prom, John. He said tonight that he would send you a check. We'll see. We can hardly wait for the 18th. Betty Bell, Judy Wudy fill your flasks. We have a rendezvous date to guzzle!!
Great story, thanks Sandie, and congrats to Brian on his Grandfatherdom. Brian, I'll be looking for your check and we'll see you both on Prom Night.

Message: Susie Nelson, class of 1969, you old girlfriend, you. Welcome to Cougartown. It was great visiting with you and Donna Vandouris and Donna Cook on Sunday. Seeing you again after all these years (32?) brought to mind a little story about the year we were 15. I had my learners permit from the DMV but had only driven the car once or twice but only with my mother and only in a parking lot. You had a party one Friday night that ended in a few bitter words with your parents. To cheer you up Jim Doersam and I decided to take you to Mexico!. Brilliant idea! It was after midnight and Jim drove his dads car. (What the hell were we thinking?) We made it all the way to the Marine base in Oceanside when Jim was pulled over by the CHP. The officer found out that Jim didn't even have a permit let alone a license. After a little investigating it was discovered that I was the only one in the car with any kind of paper from the DMV, so I was put behind the wheel and told to take everyone back home. I've never been so afraid in my life. On a freeway, in the dark, in San Diego, at 2 AM. Yes, fifteen year olds are soooooooo stupid. How did we survive ourselves? Jim Doersam? Are you out there? John, If we aren't having brussels sprouts for dessert, could it be, dare I say it?........The dreaded cheesecake? Prom Nite is startin' to get my blood cookin. Look out. Love you guys........Dizzy Lizzy the GetAway Car Driver
Great story Liz. And yes, Cheesecake it is. See you on the 18th.

There were about six of us there that night -- including a really large guy with curly brown hair whose name escapes me. Do you remember?

Message: Ok John ... As near as I can find, Moondoggie was a fictional character from the book "Gidget" written by Frederick Kohner about his daughter Kathy when she fell in with the Malibu surf crowd back in the late 50's. She was nicknamed Gidget and the characters of moondoogie " a college drop out & "Kahuna" as anti establishment, but I couldn't find a direct link to moondoggie being any one specific surfer of malibu at the time. Kahuna was based on surfer Terry "tubesteak" tracy it seems.
Hey Walter, Thanks for trying...... anyone else have a clue where the Moon Doggie ORIGIN came from??

Message: John... Moon Doggie was indeed Gidgets boyfriend & surf mentor starting with the original Gidget movie with Sandra Dee. Shoot the moon was a term we used back in the old long board days for mooning the beach. Virginia Beach is considered the Small wave capital but it can get some pretty awesome hurricane swells in the fall & winter. I surfed a couple of 18' wave days prior to & after hurricanes hitting the coast.
OK I'll buy the Shoot the Moon slang term, but we still need to know the ORIGIN of Moon Doggie. Where did his name come from??
