**  Contest Update  **

  It's working - we've gained 96 new subscribers since 3/29/02! That's all I'll say for now except for one suggestion. Every class should have someone who has kept a class list for reunion purposes. Those lists probably have e-mail addresses for many classmates. If someone were to send me their class list, preferably just those with e-mail addresses, then I would add them to the PHS Alumni On-Line database as subscribers, send them an e-mail telling them that you have referred them as subscribers, and tell them that if they do not wish to subscribe to let me know and I will remove them from the database. You would get credit (entries in the contest) for all of those subscribers minus any who opt out or whose e-mail bounces back as undeliverable. Just a suggestion.

  One more thing I will add that may instigate some friendly interclass rivalry - the classes of 1959 and 1958 have moved into second and third place behind 1963 in class metrics. I'll provide an update on class metrics as we get further into the contest. - Paul

  Thanks, Dennis [Cresswell]. This is a great idea. I'll pass it along to my brother, class of 58.

Hey DOGS!

  I guess I'm a little chatty lately.

  Why doesn't anyone ever mention "Jacks"? I loved Jacks (probably why my thumbs drive me absolutely nuts these days!) Anyway, primarily it was for the girls but good for your dexterity I'm sure . . . until old age, or middle age, or whatever you want to call where we are now. And, there were the regular gray jacks with the red rubber ball and then there were the top of the line multi-color metal jacks, turquoise, magenta, gold, silver and if you were really oh so lucky, a golf ball.

  Anyone remember those metal drink glasses that were popular in the `50's? They were really fancy colored, shimmery purple, gold, blue and maybe chartreuse. I thought I was living high on the hog to have a coke out of one of those. I'm more refined today and know that it never gets any better than out of glass, preferably that small 6-oz. bottle at Christmas.

  Happy Egg Rolling Day to you all and may the Sun rise and shine on each and every one of you, all day long.

  Sand storms that stung any exposed skin. In grade school, putting your coat up behind your head like wings, jumping up and flying back ten feet. When the wind blew, it sucked, but that was fun.
