What's so ironic about this is that the 40 year old cat (his birthday was last Friday)
who voluntarily tuned up this image is dyslexic
so he didn't EVEN notice "renuion"
(I'll get it corrected tomorrow morning & blast out the file to the unusual suspects before departing Tuscaloosa)

Dear DHS CLASS OF '68 40TH REUNION JAM Street Crew~

Y'all, it rilly did warm the worn & weary cockles of this
little old iddy biddy teenie weenie wicked heart
when I opened this email today:

Had lunch at Hunt's today .
Your poster was on the door!!

Talked to Buie on the phone today.
He's back on Lake Eufaula & he told me Wilbur was on Charlie Platt's TV show this morning & they showed the YouTube clip of GEORGIA PINES from the Norman's Jam DVD. (Somebody call me tomorrow 205-657-7724 or email me & give me a progress report on recording and filming the event)

Tonight I finished putting together my TIME WARP BOXES of magazines & newspapers from our senior year for the banquet Saturday night. Tell a professional photographer that I'll pay money for a picture of THE CLOVERDALE ELEMENTARY CLASS OF '62 ( There should be at least 8 of us there) , The YJHS BABY CRIMINAL CLASS OF '65 and one of everybody.

Unbelievable the number of levels of consciousness this endeavor has stimulated.

The DHS Class of '59 & The DHS Class of '69 can damn showl learn a few damn thangs
from us about turning the opportunity of a 50th or 40th class reunion into

I'll say this.
You are about to see something about
this weekend.

Use your imagination for a little bit & imagine
the impact these three continuous nights of HARD PARTYING
are gonna have on people's lives. (Believe it or not,FOLKSIZZZZZZZZZZ,
some of DEEZE po' people

Let's all keep working together to insure that it'll be mostly FUN
& that THERE ain't NO BLOODY SH*TTY MESS for us to clean up for on

Mean Gene, our postman & lead guitarist for TOUCH OF GRAY which plays on the quad every Saturday before Bama ball games, took our guitar to band practice tonight so I'll get the results of a full examination tomorrow morning.
The prognosis is muy f*ckin' good!
I gotta feeling somebody can use it to perform with Sunday
and that will increase it's value when we auction it off.
I'm stopping by Eufaula on the way down to get Buie to autograph the guitar and some posters.


(pace yourselves...)


This Ugly Evil Scalawag
Would Have Loved To Have Seen Us
Have To Have Two Reunions Just Like
The Poor Old DHS Class of '77

Just had a thought,
has anyone contacted the radio stations?
Maybe we can get some free publicity? - g

I'm forwarding your suggestion to Bill J. Moody @ WDJR, Leigh Simpson @ WOOF and David Adkins who's the director for the show.



C ~

Oh man!
talkin' 'bout


Folks will go f*ckin' off talkin' how much they hated Dothan High.

But I think they mainly hated STUFF CLOSE TO HOME
& their IGNORANCE about the OPPORTUNITIES in the
Dothan area.


god grant me...


I bet Goo wood luv
to get a little email like dis un...

Dear Robert,

Looking forward to visiting @ the reunion.

Nice to see you still have that same devilish twinkle in your eyes!

Still partying, huh?

My buddy, N., (sax & most other instruments, class of 1966) mentioned you a few months ago. He was appreciative of your efforts @ a fund raising for one of his friends.
N. played in a lot of bands in Dothan:

Norman Andrews & Concrete Bubble, The Lyrics, Stone Ground - Mike Griggs, a guitar player --last name Johnson, Jimmy Watford. I may have some of the names misspelled or mixed up, but you would probably remember Joe. He said "hello". Another friend there passed away ---forget name-- Etheridge?

I pulled a box of school "stuff" out of the attic & saw an article about our 6th grade class at Cloverdale Elementary.

You were the Master of Ceremonies,
( A Day in May).
I remember the May pole.

Mrs Burdeshaw led the invocation -
boy, was I terrified of that woman!

I copied a photo of the King, Queen and the court to give to Donald.

You have done a lot of planning to make the reunion fun.
I wish I could stay Sunday afternoon!
See you soon,



An interesting take on the times of our lives. You may copy and paste the link or click on it. It will take a little time to load, so be patient. It would make an interesting show at the upcoming reunion
. I think you will enjoy it.

I don't see why this can't be performed, especially if somebody'z
got KARAOKE!!!!!

I'll play the song just as long as I don't have to learn the lyrics, or even read them again...

Make up new lyrics!

Brad Stephens, Birddog Hadden,
A.B.Clarke & Chief Hilson...

Talked to El Nixo on the phone tonight and he said Susan & The Dynamics would be an entire chapter in his autobiography.

I think this is right. Susan & The Dynamics had two singles on Dot Records with a producer from
Nashville named Noah Ball. The songs were called HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR JULIE & Some Day.
