Message: Hey John, We were just saying that we thought it was time for you to have another birthday! How many fingers do you have to hold up now? Have a great day, friend. Cruise night was a blast as usual. Did the Hawthorne Cable TV crew come down? I thought I saw them in a picture and while watching local Hawthorne Happenings on Time Warner they had a headline about an upcoming Cruise night story. Is it really us? That would be very cool. Enjoy your day!
Thanks Bob, and yes the Hawthorne TV guys were there. Please tape it if you can....

Message: What an extraordinary and awesome reunion, my Kudos go to the Committee. I would also like to thank Gary Shambaugh and his lovely wife Sharon, for letting me stay at their beautiful home for the reunion. I was also very much taking by my tour thru Hawthorne with Gary, we stop at my old house at 13015 Shoup and took some pictures. I was over come with emotions and very much missed Hawthorne, they were the best years of my life and I would very much like to come back some day. Now back to the reunion, I have never seen so much energy on a dance floor, our Cougarettes and Cougars did not let us down and I surly will be there for our 40th reunion. It was exciting to meet my fellow classmates and for some that I haven't seen in 35 years. And to you John Baker, happy Birthday.
Thanks Michael, glad you had a fun night.

Message: Happy Birthdays to John, Howard (Paco), and any other Cougar out there who might be celebrating a birthday. I understand there was an ?offspring of a Cougar sighting at the last Cruise Night. Joanna was charmed by all of you. Thank you all for your hospitality. Unfortunately, my daughter will be returning to a very sad country. We are in mourning here for lost nature and lost lives. Thank you again for showing my daughter the best side of America??.old Cougars. I wear my Cougar shirt much more often, and more hopeful that I?ll have a Cougar sighting here in Athens, rather than say wearing one for a Bruin sighting. By the way, I loved reading about the Samohi game. I was there, but I was busy leading people to ?Push?em back, push ?em back, waaaay back?. It was a time so full of joy and a deep down feeling of pride that you were a student at Hawthorne High it was a memory worth bringing up. And what a hero Russ ?Jake? was. Cougars Rule!
Yes it was, and it's somehow been lost in the late classes. It seemed that not only did the students show for the games but lots and lots of parents and other relatives. Thanks Jim for the Feedback. I met your daughter and Janos too. She is an angel....

Message: Wow what fun at our 20 yr reunion this weekend. I was sad to come back to Montana. But its funny how no matter how much fun vacation is, your own bed sure feels great again! It was great also to finally meet you John and some of the other older alumni. Wish I could have hung out at Fosters longer, as my honey was enjoying the cars rolling in!! But I had to get spiffed up for the big party. Hope to see you Cougars all again sometime.
Hey Cathy, well thanks for coming to Cruise Night no matter how long the stay. Glad you had a fun time and thanks too for the loan of the 87 El Molino. Got all the pictures scanned yesterday and will be sending it home to you this week or next.
