Message: Took Dale's advice and was going over the old pages of Feedback. Incredible !!! Memories everywhere. While I was reading, my mind was wondering. (don't take much) Does anyone know what happened to My Secret Heart-throb. Guess you'll have to look it up from the 74 reunion. I was just wondering if she ever got married. She wasn't yet at the 10th.

Dancin Dave ????? Man my memory is gone. Guess your gonna have too refresh it for me. See Dale your still a year younger than me. So just wait till your my age. If I remember right. Didn't I play defense? Oh well. Hey John. I agree totally. Acapulco is a great place. Try their wet red. You won't be sorry. If you can eat it all. Sorry Patti... I agree with John. Gotta here more about the kitchen pool...
David, The wet red sounds great. Anyone remember Louies on Western? They had a great wet burrito too. Great family Mexican restaurant. Small though and not easy to get a lunchtime seat.
Yeah, c'mon "Chilly Cheeks", tell us the kitchen pool story.

Message: Hiya Mensito - sarcasm, who me? I don't think so. I was being sin-cere. It's amazing how V1 has reduced my 10 year old ice block sitting contest win to a mere 17 minutes. Ricki, it's ok, we're adults now. Come clean. I sat on that damn ice block for 4 hours, egged on by my sweet big sister. My butt turned black for 1.5 days. SOMEONE was very worried. A throwback to the kitchen pool indirect accountability process. If my butt fell off, V1 would be in big trouble. But, excuse the pun, it didn't.
Yes...... more on the kitchen pool please.

Message: John, I love this website! I have told so many people about it and urged them to add their names to the Alumni list. I am glad to see that there are more people from the class of 80 and 81 starting to show up. I love to hear about all the fun the people from the 50's,60's and 70's had, but what about the people that graduated in the early 80's? We had great times too. Instead of cruising Hawthorne Blvd. we "cruised the beach". Does anyone remember going from the horseshoe at the end of Harbor drive in Redondo Beach and making the u turn to head back down Harbor Drive to Hermosa Beach and then.... back again. Thank goodness gas prices weren't what they are today! I remember how all the guys like Don Dallons, The Miller Boys and so many others hung out at Winchell's donuts with all their "cool" cars and watched all the girls cruise by. On just about any Friday and Saturday night me, Teresa Green and Kelly Sturgeon would jump in my yellow bug and first hit the local 7-11 to get the "oh my god size" cola slurpees, add our rum and then cruise with the "Ted Nugent, Wango Tango" cassette cranked. We had so much fun, until the police decided to close down the streets after 10:00p.m. and the cruising died off. Do any of you Cougars remember in 1980 when HHS was playing baseball against Redondo High and I was speeding down Vincent Street next to the Baseball field in Redondo and was so busy looking to see who was there from HHS, I didn't look ahead to see that a Redondo cop was at a dead stop in front of me and you guessed it..... I rear ended the cop (Sgt. Keenan). I wasn't hurt and neither was the cop but I was scared to death and sooooooo humiliated. If we could only go back and have all that fun just one more time! Well I have gabbed long enough better go. Anyone from the class of 81 feel free to e-mail me or any class for that matter.
Lori, The memories are exactly the same, just a different era. I can remember my Dad telling the same exact stories about his days at Inglewood High and Leuzinger in the early 30's. Cruising, Hangouts, Street Racing, Pranks, Girls, .......it never changes. Thanks Lori

Message: Okay, ya got me. I can't believe I ever wore my hair that way. A bobby pin on the side? ...please! As I promised, I called Clayton Williams and told him about Cougartown and all of you that have mentioned him. His first words were, "Were they kind?" I assured him that this was comfortable place to visit. He finally got a computer very recently and still doesn't have all of it figured out. His son, Chris, is staying with him for a while and is teaching him the ropes. Hopefully he'll contact us all soon. You might be interested to know that his son has a 3 year old daughter and his wife is expecting to deliver a son in about a month.
I think that I'll be seeing him in about 3 weeks. We're going to try and get together, if he can find his way back to L.A. I'm really looking forward to it.
Dale, I used to be a rec leader at Eucalyptus park too. I remember those awful and long Saturdays too. We didn't even get a lunch break. I used to bribe kids in to walking to the corner store on 120th and Inglewood Ave. and get me a sandwich and coke. Wasn't it Groves? I remember one summer day when I got the brilliant idea of having an ice block sitting contest. My little 10 year old sister, V5, won it for the girls after sitting on it for about 17 minutes. I worried the rest of the day that she had frostbite on her little buns. Thinking about my rec leader days can bring up a million stories. I'll share more later.TTFN
Adds a whole new twist to the word "Frigid" huh.....Thanks Ricki

Hi Jeff and welcome aboard. Yes, I'm looking forward to the reunions next year, but the year that should be an all time PARTY YEAR is 2002. This will be the 50th anniversary of HHS. I think some MAJOR party plans should be made that year.

And John is right about Johnnie's proximity to Tito's. I love the red beef burritos there....... Unfortunately, all three are a little too far for lunch. John, there's a little place in Carson on 223rd street at about Vermont called Acapulco Cafe. If you're ever near there, stop in. Great food!

Message: WOW! I didn't know that little JOE-JOE Mailander knew or lived near you, John. He lived near 129th and Oceangate when I knew him. He lived next door to Adrian Reynolds. Adrian and I go WAaay back. He and I used to skip arm in arm to 1st grade at Cabrillo School. I still keep in touch with him, though not as regularly as we might like. You would think that for all the adventures we had as kids we would have gotten into more trouble. We also could waste a lot of paper. For all of you math fans Adrian and I tried to get the answer to 9 to the quantity (9 to the 9th). After about a 12 hour day we determined that there were > 300 million digits in the final answer. As Joe mentioned in a previous feedback Adrian liked Edgar Allen Poe. The Raven was almost a language between us. We would recite it almost constantly. OK Adrian! I have kept away from many of our adventures that now-a-days would have the police at your house. If you would like to expand on them. Patt you had to bring up the incident with the police and firefighters. Wasn't that in December? Besides me didn't have something to do with you, a TV and movie star, and a LOW cut dress? Maybe you remember all of the details... It really was no big thing.
Chris, Joe didn't know me. He lived in the same house that my Grandparents had previously owned in the 50's, and forget the Ramanajan stuff, let's get back to the Movie Star in the LOW cut dress here.

I still think of that time whenever I hear one of his songs. As for your ski trip, wasn't I on that with you, too? Was that the one with Jim, Valerie, Carmen, Glen, Dave, you and me? I can't recall all of the people on my first ski trip, but I do recall Carmen playing Boz Skaggs over and over and over again, without ever going out to ski! How about all of your "parties" when your parents moved to Cerritos? We practically lived at the house with you guys, (Carmen and me.) Carmen would drive her VW bug every Friday, and as usual, we got lost getting back to Hawthorne EVERY Friday! Many times we ended up at Disneyland, (in error, of course!) By the way, your parents look EXACTLY the same as they did in the 1950's! You're a lucky guy, Dale...you have good genes!
Name: Ted Gioia () on Thursday, May 20, 1999 at 17:01:23
Message: John, I remember the Mailander household on Birch quite well. Since there is a family connection, you may be interested in one of the more bizarre moments in the history of that building. I am referring to the day when -- believe it or not! -- FBI agents had it staked out in search of TERRORIST REVOLUTIONARIES! Back in the early 1970s, you may recall, newspapers closely covered the story of Patty Hearst, who had been kidnapped by an underground group called the Symbionese Liberation Army. In fact, Patty had been involved in a hold-up, conducted by the SLA, at a store in Inglewood, and there was some speculation that she might be located somewhere in the area. One of Joe's unusual friends (I was not the only one, I assure you) sent him a prank letter addressed to "Patty Hearst c/o Joseph Mailander" at his Birch home. Needless to say, the morning the letter was delivered proved to be an eventful one for Mr. & Mrs. Mailander. The mailman arrived that day with a battalion of FBI agents in tow. I believe that the Mailander family never actually got hand-cuffed and arrested, but it took some time before the FBI accepted the fact that the letter had been a mere prank. It seems that the FBI rarely hires anyone with a sense of humor. . .
Now that's something MY SICK FRIENDS would do to ME!! Thanks Ted

Message: Ah, Dale, I do keep in contact with JOE MAILANDER. He and I have always been a close-knit pair. In fact, I fondly recall that we placed surprisingly high in the voting for CUTEST COUPLE our senior year. He has been a great friend -- 25 years ago he lent me money so I could go on my FIRST DATE, and still hasn't been repaid. In 1991, he was BEST MAN at my wedding, and recently visited for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Joe is now a SUCCESSFUL BANKER -- widows and orphans watch out! -- and continues to be (as he has always been) a highly talented WRITER. He knows about this web site (indeed, he was the person who told me about it). I have encouraged him to participate in the feedback -- although I would need to put constraints on what he says about me, which is usually laced with irony, metaphor, syllogisms and various other complicated rhetorical devices.
Ted, I think Joe has added Feedback once or twice. Joe and I are kind of related, as he lived in the same house as my grandmother and grandfather owned on Birch Av. (not at the same time, of course). I got that from someone ...Susan Walling?? Anyway, it's a small Cougar world.
