Message: Response to Jill McFarlane: The Beach Boys historical landmark "movement" is the brainchild of Mr. Harry Jarnagan of Tracy, CA. He is jumping through a myriad of hoops to get the Wilson childhood home site (the actual house succumbed to freeway construction)recognized & formally "marked" by the state as an historic landmark. If successful, as is likely, it is hoped there will be a formal dedication of the site, with Brian Wilson in attendance (schedule permitting), along w/ former Beach Boy & Wilson neighbor, David Marks.

I'll monitor the email to the above referenced address, and pass contact info on to the reunion committee. Getting information early should increase participation. Please pass this on to other class members.

Message: John thank you for linking us to the article regarding "Beach Boys". Great article and I hope that it all happens. Being raised in Hawthorne we all have great memories of the Beach Boys, I know that I do. They are a huge piece of history for Hawthorne, and anyone that drives down the 105 freeway should see it. After their first record, scavenger hunts at their house became very popular....:o) Jan
Hi Jan, Thanks go to Don DiTomasso for clueing me in to the article. I'm sure it'll be one of the most STOLEN historical landmarks.

Message: I heard an interesting piece of news this morning. Apparently there is a man who wants the old home of the Wilson brothers recognized as a historical landmark. Problem is, the house does not exist anymore because the 105 runs through it. There might be a sign on the freeway to commemorate the Beach Boys old home. Anyone know who is spearheading this?
Hi Jill, look directly above your feedback.

I communicate with many Vets. John has created a place on this site for your memories, please take them there. I am offended that this man tells me "Not to Forget." It is a painful memory everytime I look at a family picture.

Message: John, at the bottom of one feed back you did a little saying?? about a pirate and being over 40. What is this? I ask because this weekend I went to a wake and was told one of the guys fave songs was something like "a pirate facing forty" (something like that and I had never heard of it.) Is this a song you were quoting? thank you
Hi Carole, Yes, it's a song by Jimmy Buffet, "A Pirate Looks At 40". Go here to hear it.

Message: Pete's family went to our church and I remember going to BBQ Pete's when it was a little place on Inglewood Avenue - the family lived on the premises. When he was old enough, my big brother, Tom, went to work in the kitchen at Pete's. Here's the BBQ Pete's coleslaw recipe - I have it in Pete's own handwriting, (and spelling):
5 galon shreded cabbage
1 qt of oil
1 qt of viniger
8 oz. sugar
4 oz. salt
Mix it well but do not squis the cabbage.
I hope that all that try this recipe, enjoy it like we have over the years. At a large family gathering I made the whole recipe and mixed it in an ice chest.

See Cougs, all you have to do is ask. Thanks Myrna and hope you emailed Judi the recipe too as sometimes they don't return to Feedback....

Message: reading an article in American Biker there is mention of a boxing club in Hawthorne named Shaws boxing club..does anyone remember it and where it was..the article is funny because this guy claims that his panhead never broke down,he's had it 30 years!!! Anyone who knows anything about Harley Davidsons will think this as absurd as we did..but he claims it's all due to ZEN! Go figure....
Shaws Boxing Club was behind Shaws Marine (Sporting Goods) on Rosecrans and Inglewood Av. The Boxing club hasn't been there for years. Shaws moved to El Segundo and about Ramona last year. Miguel Zamora and Kathy Buzby Zamora, both HHSers, own it now. The name has changed to M&K Marine. The story is on Feedback Page 553.

Message: All this talk about "Boat Drinks" can be solved by listening to Jimmy Buffett and realizing the full definition. So head off to Key West and receive your education free of charge, tips not included. From one who has been sober now for 18 years I've had myself more Boat Drinks than I deserved, but have survived one day at a time to tell about the hole I was in. Cougs, I had enough money to buy Hawthorne, but I !@#$$&* it away. Have a great day and enjoy the fruits of your existence to their fullest. Colbern, I'm proud of you. Hang in there.
Yes, I am a pirate two hundred years too late. The cannons don't thunder there's nothin' to plunder, I'm an over forty victim of fate. GET OVER IT!!

The oil co. gave my Dad $20 for the rights to slant-drill for oil on our property on 134st between Inglewood Ave. and Ramona. I had forgotten all about that. I don't think much ever came out of it.

When I say "discriminating," I mean "high-class establishment with impeccable expectations" not "aux armes, mes amis." Just realized I may have missed the mark, once again, with my attempt at humor, and do not wish to upset anyone!

Message: Hey! I have an idea for our Cougartown t-shirts! We have a local tavern here in Gig Harbor that is a local landmark. Customers started sending in pictures of themselves wearing a Tides Tavern t-shirt while they were on vacation in exotic locales some 20+ years ago. As the pictures were posted, new pictures started coming in and the tradition caught on. Now they have 3 walls of pictures from all over the world. It's pretty cool since everyone tries to outdo the last picture posted by sending in a more exotic location than the last. We could do that with our Cougartown t-shirts... if John approves of course. Take your t-shirt on vacation with you and snap a photo for Cougartown! Whaddya think? (Hey Keith... you flirtin' with my little sister?)
OK, send a picture of you wearing your Ctown shirt. Thanks Cindy....

Message: Shannon, I have a Fravel Johnson story. He was the father of Dwayne Johnson who I played baseball with at HHS. In Middle League Fravel was the coach of a team I played against (I can't remember the name) and Dennis Drozdowski was the catcher. I was coming home and I didn't slide and came in standing up and took Dennis for a ride up against the back stop. Fravell came running out and pushed me and started yelling and Mark Lee was the umpire and he stopped Fravell and then kicked him out of the game. Fravel did have a temper. Also, Michelle Whittaker the years have been ultra-good to you. Sheryl Foster you too look the same.

Come to think of it?maybe some of the Cougarettes pictured were part of the throng of young ladies who ogled over the band. Please email me. I?d love to know if your boy is turning into (I?m sorry turned into, time is flying by) the fireball slinger you used to be at Aviation Little League, pitching for Fravell Johnson (anyone have stories of that Bobby Knight clone?).
