Message: Wow Janet, that brought back memories, there is nothing quite so nice as climbing in bed between sheets that hung on the line all day. As a kid, we lived about four houses from the Huckabys, on the weekend I would go and help Connie when she did her laundry in a wringer washer and then she would hang them on the line, I still think that I would do my laundry that way if there were time. Well I am off to Las Vegas to visit Martha Amour for the weekend, "major gab session". Everyone have a good Easter.

Message: Paula Dunn - I used to live across the street from Barbie Coate on Hansworth in Holly Glen. I e-mailed her neighbor on Hansworth and she says Barbie is living in the San Diego area. Her dad still owns the house on Hansworth and Barbie comes up to visit once in a while, so maybe she can find out Barbie's e-mail address next time they get together.

Message: Here's a Hawthorne "memory", or maybe it is just generational! Those wire pant frames that your mom used to put in the pant legs of your jeans before hanging them on the line. (Or, in Mrs. Baker's case, those Hawthorne Christian School khakis.) They would get stiff as a board with a crease down the legs that wouldn't come out until the next washing! Haven't seen those stretchers(?), or whatever they were called, in years. And, how about the smell of clean sheets that had hung outside on the clothesline, in the sun all day. Of course this was all before fabric softener and electric dryers! So...who's got the time for all that today?? But, folks today are missing one of the great, simpler things of years gone by.

Yep, pants stretchers..... I remember them hanging, with pants stretched tightly, in the hall over the floor heater to dry. Not exactly a Maytag but it was our clothes dryer.

He hasn't been able to answer email because he can't sit up long enough. So if you've sent him an email and haven't gotten a response back, that's why.
Take it easy Dan; I'll make an excuse for you at our reunion meeting tonight.

Message: John Baker 3, pedestrians on the path ZERO! John I really liked the forearm shuck this morning, well timed, delivered strategically and it was a fair blow. As Emperor Bob Baker says, "Get off the bike path peasant the King is coming!" Dan Dye fans, Danny is doing better after a minor set back, yeah right it wasn't me feeling the pain, but he is doing better, keep him in your prayers. Johnny B tomorrow we should just take the Durango, its warmer, less physical energy, and we'll have all the space we need. I promise not to get any syrup on the dash board.
It's getting real dangerous out there all right. See you tomorrow.

Message:Dan Dye for all his fans and their are only as many fans as those who have met Dan, cause if you met him you know what a terrific person he is, as well as his wife Ann, is probably maybe coming home today. Yesterday he walked up 4 flights of stairs and the therapist is just too tired to deal with our Danny, so home he goes. And John he had a message for us, BE ON TIME MONDAY! Truly his surgery has gone very well, the nerve that was apparently pinched is not giving him any pain and it looks like he is well on his way to recovery! Have a great weekend Cougars and go Sooners! And Ducks too.
Get well, Dan

Hi John
Pat and I were married this past Sunday March 17th. Exactly three years to the day since we were reunited. Pat's first posting was way back on page 39. It seems such a short time ago but when I look at all the feedback and pages since then it's amazing. Thanks so much for this site John. You have brought so many old friends back together. For Pat and I it means, well lets just say we are very happy.
Thanks again John!
Ed and Pat

These two HHS 68ers found each other in Cougartown and have become the third couple, that I know of, to marry because of finding each other here.
Congratulations you two. May you enjoy each others company and all that life has to offer for the rest of your days.

Message: For all you Dan Dye fans out there. Dan has just gone through the second of 2 operations on his back, to repair disc damage done years ago. The first operation was done last week. He has come through with flying colors and is recovering at Centinela Hospital in Inglewood. He's a little groggy now, but should be OK to take a call tomorrow. If you are a Dan Dye fan, and want to call him, he's in room 6011 and the number of the Hospital is 310-673-4660
Get well Dan; Jim and I need you back on the bike.

Message: When I was in the sixth grade at York School I suffered all year with a yard duty teacher who was on my case. I don't think she was even a real teacher. But she was the dictator of the blacktop. She liked to have the sixth graders in one area, the fifth graders in another area and so on. She wanted to organize us like we were different colors and sizes of beads. One day I wandered out of my area. She was on me like a pit bull on a pork chop. "What are you doing out of your area? There are fifth graders playing here!" I had finally had enough of her. "Why are you always bugging me? I'm not molesting anyone!" I was 12 and a firm believer in "why use a small word when a big word will do". Unfortunately, in this woman's frame of reference, "molest" meant but one thing. "Young man, I should march you right into the Principal's office and have you sent home!" I was dumbfounded. I knew possibly every meaning of the word but the only one that she seemed to know. She may have read the confusion on my face because she said, "Never mind, just get over there where you belong!" But now I was indignant. I was sure that I had been unfairly accused of saying something bad. I went back to my classroom and looked up molest in Webster's Dictionary. "molest: v, 1. To bother or annoy". Armed with corroboration from a respected authority, I marched back out to the duty. I showed her the dictionary. "See? Molest; to bother or annoy. I wasn't bothering or annoying anyone". She could have reacted lots of ways to this. To her credit, she laughed. "Okay fine. Recess is almost over. Get back to class". This feeling of being misinterpreted, and subsequently censored, has always stayed with me. In a free society, we should be more suspicious of our critics and our censors than of our authors. WRITE ON, COUGS!

Message: Hi Cougars! This note is to list at least one other person that I recognized on the Hawthorne Intermediate Mrs. Graham's 8th grade class, years 1967-68. Everyone else that I recognized have already been listed. 3rd row, 2nd person-Don Glombotski (not sure of the spelling.(and Enza, I do not cheat and look in the yearbook!) I had the biggest crush on him. He sat behind me in 7th grade and probably only said two words to me, but I was hooked! Pretty pitiful because this dumb crush continued from 7th grade through half of 8th grade until I got a real boyfriend that was 16 years old! Being in 8th grade, I thought at that time, I had hit the "Big Time"! Oh, "young love" can be so painful at that age! Also, does anyone know where Pam Williams, Barbie Coate, and Joe Said from HHS 1972 are? We were all in Acapella Choir together. I will have to check with Classmates, but if anyone knows, let me know.
John, this is such a great thing you are doing to bring Cougars back together! Thanks!

Let's save our criticism for the likes of old what's his name from Beverly Hills who belittled this site and threatened to crash the prom, or better yet, for the Osama bin Ladens who threaten to destroy our very ability to speak openly....this site has been a joy not only as a look back to our past but for it's opportunity to see who we all are today and to celebrate that.
