Message: Oh Crazy Wayne...now you're starting to sound like Madman Muntz. The only difference is that Muntz never gave anything away for FREE! I could use a good slice of pizza and a free cold beer on Sept 13th as that's certainly when the heat wave starts, and since there seems to be no charge and no borders, we'll plan to be there. 2 weeks later there's our '64 reunion then the HHS picnic so I'm not sure my Italian nerves can take all this partying in such a short window of time. (yah, right)! We are officially Seniors without borders now.

Message: Dear Fellow Members of the Class of 1974, At the risk of being represented as something that rhymes with witch. I have stated three times already that I cannot and will not attend the 40th reunion of our class. I have been unemployed and now on disability since January. I cannot justify paying $90.00 a pop for rubber chicken and and a D.J. I am sorry, I just can't. I went to the 10 year reunion, and that was enough for me, and I promised myself I won't do that again. So if it is all the same to all of you, I will once again like to pass. If you really want to contact me look me up on Face Book, or the phone book (do they really still exist?). I think I have been in touch with the folks from H.H.S. that really matter to me. But, the invite is open to the rest. So Please stop sending reunion invites to my email. I know I will probably be flamed for my opinion and since this is a free country, knock yourselves out. You are the only ones that look foolish by doing so. John Thanks for a great website, I have been a fan for years.
Hi Polly, If you really don't want to be contacted, and I think you have a valid reason, email Matt and I'm sure he'll take your name off the reunion email or just delete the reunion email. Actually the chicken, itself, at the Ayres is worth 90 bucks

It amazes me that back in the early 60's when most of us young gals only weighed 110 lbs. and had skin as tight as a crab's ass, we couldn't get your attention. And now, in our late 60's we can walk right up to you and lay a big wet one on you right in front of your wife. What a good sport she is. And as the lyrics state: All o' that time in hell to spend just for kissin' the married men! The answer to it all is I'll do a quick personal confession 2 minutes before I croak.

Also, Harry Plotkin and I spend some time together today going through the in's and out's of CT and found PROM NITE-off like a prom dress video in Jerry Miles Video packs. (when did that go up )??? 13 years ago and what a blast that was. All the guys still had hair and it was still the original color. Ed Fite stole the show dancing all night with 2 gals. Good shots of Harry and Kathy shaking a leg too. What a nice surprise. We enjoyed watching it.. and now, our date is over Harry, back to the grind.

Message: Underwear in a restaurant Janet!!! I'm sorry, but all that coffee got me wound up. Actually, they were PANTALOONS. (I've sent a picture in your email Sidney). In the 60's all the gals wore them. The traditional slip had seen it's day. The layering back then went like this: 1; panty hose. 2; underwear. 3; Pantaloons. 4: Skirt. Took us half the day to undress for P.E. And yes, in this pic they're hanging on my refrigerator door with magnets as I'll get in more trouble from the King if I pin them to the wall. Cruise night was the best yet and we can still put away a double bacon burger with and have room for chocolate cream pie and coffee from Coco's. However, we will be eating cabbage soup for the next 3 days to offset the calories. Looking forward to September's '64 reunion and I'll be wearing and modeling the Pantaloons.

Message: Cheri Longanecker - I don't know who the LAD are but when I grew up Vin Scully was the announcer for the Los Angeles Dodgers. As for the subscription Television services not broadcasting the games, I blame it on the greed of the upper management of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Time Warner Cable. They started their own SportsNet LA to fill their bank accounts! According to the LA Times "Ratings for Dodger channel SportsNet LA hurt by lack of reach." http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/la-et-ct-dodger-ratings-20140403,0,5876379.story#ixzz2y82VCo2p " If I were a viewer of any of the stations currently not broadcasting the games I would encourage NOT to pick up the games and maybe SportsNet LA would go broke!

It was a lot of fun and good to know we can still put down a double bacon burger, coke and a piece of pie and still have room for our night time pills. Today the Noodlemans eat cabbage soup all day to offset it, but it was worth every minute.

Message: RE: LAD - Like most Cougars I grew up listening to Vin Scully call the LAD games. I attended games at the Coliseum & Dodger Stadium. I have enjoyed watching them on DirecTV until (obviously) this year, when LAD contracted with TW. Evidently the big boys in charge of money aren't playing well together. They don't appear to care about those of us who do not live in LA nor are subscribers to TW that we cannot receive LAD broadcasts on TV. Vin Scully is the best in the business and this may very well be his last year of calling games. Call, write the LAD and TW or use Social Media to let these big guys know we want to watch the LAD. Maybe we can make a difference.
Yes I can empathize with all who do not have Time Warner. It's a frustrating situation but I'm sure they will reach an agreement soon. In the meantime you all are invited over here to watch the Dodgers. Just bring the hot dogs, peanuts, and beer.

Message: I remember Sharon Herbst. She has a beautiful singing voice and sang a lot at Trinity Lutheran Church. Her parents are pillars of the church. They came to my mother's funeral a year ago in February. She died on Valentine's Day 2013. I remember Sharon singing a solo in the musical 'Tell It like It Is" I believe it was in the summer of 1972. The song was "That's For Me." SO beautiful. I still remember most of the words.

Message: Get your September calendar out, find your checkbook, have that second cup of coffee, and then commit to having fun at the Class of "64 Reunion. Don't let this one get by Cougars! Shine your high heeled sneakers, dust off your Cougar Rooter buttons, wax your '57 Chevy and get your Pendleton shirt out of the mothballs. Uncle Jimmy Weldon and Webster Webfoot, Sheriff John, Engineer Bill, Lloyd Thaxton, Soupy Sales, Dick Clark, Buffalo Bob and Howdy Doody all say it is time to get back together and party til the Mousekateers come home. Pack up all your excuses and throw them off the Palos Verdes cliff during the submarine races. So what if you have a bum ankle, a trick knee, menopause, Manopause, less hair on your head and more growing out of your ears, we will all just be teenagers with wrinkles that don't iron out. I remember thinking back in 1963 that I'll be 55 in 2000. Hey brothers and sisters of the Scarlett and Gold, we are way past that now and it is time to Celebrate Life!!!!!
Very well said Tom, it's time to rock and roll to (and with) the oldies. Sign up now 64ers and save the extra bucks for Sen Sens. We are going to party like it's 1959!! See you all there on September 27th and I'm working on having the Cougartown Picnic the next day. Gonna be a fun weekend for sure.
