Message: Happy Birthday cousin Kelley! ..I would ask if this is a big one, but at this point they all are ... Have a good one girl..Hey Howie I listened to Kid Rock's entire album the other day and not a bad song on it. Nothing like good old backbeat rock and roll. But is "First Kiss" another "Blurred Lines" situation?..Sounds a lot like Bryan Adams "Summer of 69". Just sayin'..

Message: So, how come no one is making a fuss over the Pancake Breakfast on Saturday? Jan and I have our tickets and we're dragging my baby brother, Tom DeGrazia, down there as well. If the weather man says rain, it's only water and I've eaten wet pancakes before. I'm being told that tickets are going to be sold at the door for they that didn't purchase them yet. On Saturday, we're celebrating Jan's first official day as a retired man. Now the real fun begins. Hope to see all of you there..we'll be sitting with Sue and Steve Bierman. Get out that silly umbrella hat and be there. I can hardly wait to win the raffle and I always do. This year a hand made quilt and a bottle of Petrone, My knitting will get a whole lot better if I win both prizes. See you there. show them the banner Sid.
We will be cooking pancakes, rain or shine. We'll have tables under the overhang if it's raining. Hope to see all the locals at the Museum Saturday morning.

Message: Clark: I am generally a practicioner of "saying what you mean, and mean what you say" myself. In this case, going with, "You can catch more flies by using honey instead of vinegar" would be a better strategy. It appears we'll have to wait and see what the district's response is.

Message: Beautiful day today out on old Halcap field, blue skies, white billowy clouds over Orange County and the mountains and a gentle ocean breeze. The head track coach has asked me to coach the hurdlers this season. pole vault is my expertise but we only grow when we challenge ourselves so it is good for me. Although the head coach is an on campus teacher, the athletes do not get p.e credit for being on the track team. The district won't provide funds for it!! Armand: I met with vice principal Rosalind Varhee last week regarding senior square and she promised to discuss it with the district since she is in charge of HHS facilities and Principal Mark Newall asked me to stay clear of the district. I think he was afraid I would call them clowns right to their faces. He would have been right! I have never been accused of being an introvert.

I visited his store in the Mission Viejo Mall many times thirty-odd years ago. He was at the 25th reunion. He and his younger brother were considerable baseball players, I recall.

Pulled into a service station somewhere in Northern California, late at night. The attendant comes out, looks at me and says, hey, I know you. It was Darrel Blakesley, class of '63. I know the statute of limitations as a Cougar sighting has run out on this one. Just glad I was able to remember it.

Message: I noted with sadness that actress June Fairchild lost her battle with liver cancer. She had featured roles in "Pretty Maids All In A Row", "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" and "Up In Smoke". She graduated from Aviation High in Manhattan Beach (she was also prom queen there) and went on to be a Gazzarri dancer. She was credited for coming up with the Three Dog Night's band name. Unfortunately, her alcohol and drug addictions caused her to end up in skid row. But in recent years, she sobered up and her life was on the upswing. She was 68. A memorial fund has been set up:

Message: Happy birthday Russ. May this day be good to you. Doris, if Jake doesn't respond today, can I be first in line for the hug and kiss at the next cruise in. There may not be another part to Jimmy's story. The first part was great though. The first kiss may not always be remembered, but the first kiss where you hear "bells and banjos" will never be forgotten. I can thank KSH for that memory, as she is in my heart forever. Should anyone go to Central Point Ore, to get Jimmy, The Palms cafe for breakfast and The point pub and grill for lunch or dinner.

Little old ladies need thrills too, Little Jimmy ... get with it! hehehe! It would be nice if one of the guys could chime in here with some support.
Happy Birthday Russ, I'm playing "Charlena", all day, in your honor. Have a great one, maaaann!! And Doris, Come on out for Cruise Night, March 28. I need hugs and kisses too

Message: It was in the 4th grade at Eucalyptus grade school that I asked a girl out on a date. In the old '53 Ford my Grandmother drove me to her house. It was a new experience for me and wasn't sure what to do. I got out of the car and walked up to her door and knocked. Her mom came to the door then went back inside. It seemed like a long time before she came out. I walked her to the car and opened the back seat door for her then I got in the front seat. On our way to the Plaza theater I looked back and she had slid way down low in the seat so she couldn't be seen. We saw Francis The Mule Joins the Army or something like that. At school I hung out with Tim Lyons. BTW, Janet, what about "Boom Boom Sherry"?
Thanks Jim for the story.

There were some scenes in Hawthorne, but most of the story told how they teach their method of community involvement across the country, specifically in Charleston, SC in the segment on yesterday. It is visible at the CBS This Morning website. There was an interesting story on Inglewood, the mayor and his plans for the racetrack site in USA Today on Monday. NFL at Hollywood Park?

Yes I know you were. Melanie Mullins was my Cheri Parker. I've written about her before on Feedback. At one time, trying to find her, and doing the 5 dollar lookup on the Internet, and finding a likely candidate. Called her but it wasn't the right Melanie. We talked for a few minutes and she thought it was so sweet that I was trying to make contact after some 45 years. Now thinking it's best to just keep the 3rd grader in my mind. You'd be surprised how many Melanie Mullins there are out there. Like finding a Jimmy Smith.

Message: I loved Jim's story, The Kiss and propose we have a nation-wide (well, a California-wide) hunt for the woman in question to submit the ending. I myself, after experiencing the awfulness of widowhood, found my old boyfriend on Facebook (via Ray Rasmussen's page)and in fact attended my 50th HHS reunion with him (since we met right after high school, it was, in a sense, our 50th reunion too). Yes, the internet is an amazing place.
Hi Pat, Like the Beatles said, let it be. The beauty is in the story itself. The time when we all picked out that very first, very special infatuation that we couldn't stop thinking about. Also, be careful what you wish for. Cheri may see little Jimmy as a snotty nosed ogler with deviant underpinnings. Or she may now be a third striker with an axe to grind. Just enjoy the story and let it bring back your youthful memories.

I would have imagined we women would be clamoring for the result of the painstakingly search for Cheri. Pleasantly surprising though, it appears we have a few romantic-types among the male CTers.

Message: More class names forthcoming as soon as Bonnie returns my call. Hey, anyone remember the 10pm curfew besides Nancy, Jonathan, Bobby and I (hate to admit how many times we were pulled over in my old blue Buick). The Hawthorne Police always let us off and told us to say that we were just going home from a show! Well, at least most of the time, we were. Although I was painfully shy in High School I do recall a particular after football game dance/party....my "friends" dared me to walk across the dance floor and ask a certain boy to dance. He definitely was not "just any boy, but the best looking, tall, blond haired guy in school." As I crossed the crowded dance floor I assured myself he would say, "no" afterall he didn't even know my name, but then I didn't know his either, help but it was too late because there I was standing in front of him and looking up into his blue eyes hearing myself say, "will you please dance with me?" I don't even recall what he said if anything....but my feet were moving and we were dancing to a slow song. He was my hero and saved me from total embarrasment. If you are out there, "thank you once again for the dance." See guys you weren't alone, we girls had those stars in our eyes for you too!
I could never ask a girl to dance cuz...... I couldn't dance Thanks Billie

Message: On Valentine's day, 15 years ago, I was sitting on Howard Noodleman's lap giving him little kisses...when he pulled out my engagement ring (scared yah for a minute, didn't I Sidney.) and asked me to marry him. So this morning we decided to relive that special moment.. however, we just couldn't get enough momentum or torque to get off the couch without splitting a gut, so we lost the moment laughing. We decided that it was best to just use all the energy and effort to clean up and go to lunch. Isn't it weird how the same couch can just suck your ass down and hold it like a lead balloon in just a few short years. Happy Valentine's day Howie Noodleman. I love you

For once I'll be able to boldly hold up my bacon and whistle for John Baker to come over to see that it's either over-done or under cooked. Oh yah, this is going to be a lot of fun. (revenge is sweet) In addition, The VFW breakfast is this Sunday and the Pancake breakfast tickets will be on sale there as well. 5.00 a ticket and you too can whistle for JB on what's wrong with your dish. It's better than the water dunk game at the fair. See you there Sidney. LYM
Hi Til, thanks for the shameless plug for the Pancake breakfast. This will be a fun event with great pancakes by Norb Huber. The bacon, I am not cooking so please blame Janny for not helping. Hope to see lots of our Ctowners there.
BTW Happy Retirement Jan, now you get to cowtow to every "Judy whim", every hour, every day, for the rest of your life.

Message: Sorry to hear of John Moynagh's passing. Got to talk with him at a cruise in a few years back. Did not know of Mike Sullivan's passing, a fellow teammate. He is one of the people who turned me on to Buick muscle cars.

Message: Thanks, Clark. Actually, I was think that if there's a new Senior Square built, it should be with new benches. I was thinking that the benches could be stainless steel surfboards and get the remaining Beach Boys involved in the fundraising, etc. Beach Boys Senior Square?

Message: Armand: Senior Square is definitely not in the redevelopment plan or budget. It will indeed require the alumni to get it done. I scouted the campus today and there aresome good locations for it depending on the next phase of building. I did find the benches from the middle of senior square on a trash pile on the Northeast corner of campus. Damaged but repairable!

Message: Now there are some illustrious alums. Someone (Mr. B?) has already fingered my bro -- but C-9 is none other than the place kicker from hell, the late Mike Sullivan -- resplendent in his Cub Scout Uni with cool clown kerchief slide clasp. The kerchief slide was the telling part of a uniform. Spoke volumes of what you were all about. Mine was made of buffalo horn (I was, of course, a bone-head).
Mine (or one of mine) was that very same clown and of course I loved Clarabelle. Thanks Jim for the help.
