Message: As usual, people have at least half of the facts wrong. First off, it wasn't the FBI, and they weren't calling about the Federal Endangered Species Act or my 'Shinook'. It was the Burley Women With Shag Haircuts Wearing Flannel Shirts Anti Defamation League. It seems that 'someone' turned me in for stating a preference for California women. In the Great Northwest it is a capital offense to offer an opinion regarding Northwestern Burley Women. There was some discussion about incarcerating me, but a district judge decided this morning that continuing to live in Eugene would be punishment enough. While at the courthouse in Salem I did see Chris Hood of Coos Bay. He was waiting to see the judge along with a group of men wearing only towels and soccer cleats. The bailiff said he had been charged with public nudity and immoral acts involving a sheep and a pepperoni stick.
Man, I shoulda warned ya'. NEVER mess with the B.W.W.S.H.W.F.S.A.D.L. Or the Big Ugly Twiggys with Chest Hair (B.U.T.C.H.). Talk about your special forces. I think we should drop both groups into Afghanistan and see how long it takes THEM to neuter the Taliban.

Message: Good guess John. But upon close inspection of the picture that fish is not Chinook but rather its brother Oncurhynchus Kisitch or Coho Salmon which is listed under the Federal Endangered Species Act (ESA). The FBI dropped Bin Laden briefly to visit with Mike at 3:00 AM this morning. It's only a 5 to 10 minimum and with good behavior he should be back on line in about three years. In the mean time he will be playing soccer with a new team that's been drawing a lot of attention from women across the country. Anybody wishing to contribute to his attorney fees can send CASH ONLY to Chris Hood, General Delivery, Coos Bay, Oregon 97420.

I've jumped way ahead of schedule on this subject. We have no weekend and no plans as of yet, and it wouldn't be fair to say you have a seat when you don't. WCW will be planned after the first of the year. Then, and only then, will we sign anyone up. Again, sorry for being premature on this one. When we have a weekend and some definite plans, then something will be added to this page.

Message: Glad to see El Rojo back. John is right about talking about you yesterday, and Dan and I had nothing but good stuff to say about you both. Mr. Kyllonen, dare I call a teacher by his first name, maybe you should give a 10 point quiz for us to ponder over the weekend; we wouldn't answer them correctly of course and it would really be like old times. My memory of Biology was [Mr. Molitor] Harold Scott flapping his arms 120 times in a minute, on the premise that if he did, he could fly. He did but unlike Michael Jordan he got no air. Mike Backus that was a great picture, nice going. Now name the genus and species of that thing.
Isn't it Oncorhynchus tshawytscha? Just a guess of course.

We have four wineries here in the Morgan Hill / Gilroy area that are worth stopping at on the way up to Napa. If you're interested, I can get maps and brochures and mail them to you. One of the wineries is across the street from my son's high school (and close to my office too!) and it makes a wonderful sherry that's aged for a long time.
Hi Ruth, Consider yourself added to the list. That's 8 people signed up and we need 30 total. Please send any literature you have to me or email Glenn Crist in Sonoma at Thanks Ruth, and we'll see you in the spring.

I lost both of my parents way too early.Next...God Bless The USA!!!! And next...I feel reluctant to even say this with the situation in these here United States, I'm doing fairly well with my medical problems. First of all I'm still alive. John and Janet, we hope you had a lovely weekend or so. With the turmoil of late you deserved it. I would like to point back to page 427, of that picture of Cal Kappen and Jerry (THE DUCK) Daquilla at 26th st. Cal mentioned the "skateboard thing", our little two by fours with the metal skates nailed on. Most don't remember the early days of rocking and rollin on a skateboard. You hit a rock "most times you rolled"! You see, Cal and I and several friends invented that term "rock and roll", as opposed to that Freed guy who was trying to take advantage of our new found fun and games. He actually coined that term after he saw us skateboarding the Torrance Cliffs one night, then turned the video for his advantage. Do you understand? Oh well Cal and I never got those royalties. But we have COUGARTOWN!!! Hello Royal and Patty. Good to see you had a great time. Although I can't believe your son was more important than I. Did I say my computer is working. This is a test!!!! MAY THE COUGAR BE WITH ALL OF YOU! JAKE N JUDE!
Hey EL and Judi, we missed you two. Dan, Jim, and I were talking about you on our bike ride this morning. Hope the back is doing well too. OH, and sorry about that Rock and Roll royalty too. Maybe next time. Be a Coug boy and don't wait so long between shouts.
