Calling All Bulldogs!! - 24
09/13/04     Jeff Mason  (1979)      jlmason02@adelphia.net
I know there are alot of you who cruise by this message site to see if anybody is talking about you, or to see what's going on. Ya'll know what's going on, the 25th Reunion, so lets get the chatter started. You think you're to good, too embarassed, you think its cheesy to post a message. Heck we're mass comunicating here and it's damn easy. A simple "Hi", "F--- off", or joke would be sufficient. Everybody likes a good joke. Somebody go by Tommy's Pig Shack and tell him to buy a computer for his son, and then get his son to show him how to log on to this. Now about this Reunion...I expect a good effort from everybody to be there. Last I remember there's a big Bulldog contingent in the Carolina's, Georgia, Florida, even a few of us in Tejas. No matter where you are at in this country or world, I expect to see all ya'll there. Oh, all you classmates still living in the 'Ville, yall are automatics. Don't let me find out you live there and didn't show up. I'll drop a stink bomb on your trailer so bad the DEQ will declare it a SuperFund Clean Up Site. This ain't no last minute throw together, its been in the making for 25 years, you've had plenty of notice. OH, I don't want to hear ,"I couldn't find a babysitter, or "my child has a ball game". Tuff, tell junior or missy thats one game they're gonna have to miss. I don't want to hear my cars broke,or that you've missed the last 3 car payments and they're coming to repossess it. Hide the damn thing. And if you need to borrow some money to fix it call Guy Varn, I hear his interest rates are pretty good now. I hear he's working outta Junior Sample's car lot, fone number BR-549. Say Guy, what color shirt you wearin to the formal Sat. night? I want to get one just like it. As I was saying, I don't want to hear I'm gonna stay home and watch the Lifetime Channel, or that you're gonna sit up all night and look at internet porn, or my computer crashed and I can't print a Yahoo map, because I don't know how to get there from here. I don't want to hear, the contractor's coming that weekend to finish the outhouse, or I gotta take grandma to get her dentures waxed. I DONT'T WANT TO HEAR IT! NO EXCUSES!! Now come on in and letus have a look at ya. Alot of ya have done very well for yourselves. Alot better than you thought you would, and a whole lot better than we thought you would. And some of us haven't hit our stride yet, but we're still giving it the All American Mavahi
Bulldog effort. So come on in that weekend and see some old friends. Laugh, cry, lie and get that warm fuzzy feeling all over again. If you need some motivation flip on over to the yearbook photos and behold all the fresh faces. Thanks Lisa, thank your husband for me too. Also I heard they're giving away a 4 day cruise for 2 at the formal Sat. night, happily donated by Gene Warren. But that could just be a rumor.
DISCLAIMER: This message was authorized and approved by Jeff Mason. In no way was it meant to offend, upset, intimidate, make mad, ridicule or generally tickle anybody's fancy. Although if you felt any of these emotions, you must have known I was talking about you.
Four weeks and counting. Let's get the chatter started.

How about those DOGS!!! Butt kicking Friday night against Rustburg. Glad to see your message "Calling all Dogs". I like the part about Warren donating the cruise trip. That should bring em all in. Right ON!!
Saw Steve & Tammy Woods this past weekend and they're planning on being there. What the heck are you doing in Texas, we thought you were in Lexington. Come on in for the reunion and let's have a big time

Re: Calling All Bulldogs!!
Thanks for the uplifting, step on your toes message!!! The local ville people have no excuse for not coming!!! I look forward to coming and seeing everyone!! I know everyone gets tired of seeing my messages, but I will keep on sending them!! Call all of your old buddies and put the pressure on!! Twenty five years and there is still some of our classmates that hasn't shown their beautiful cute faces at any of the reunions. There is no better time to start than the 25th. Looking for you to come and help make it the best one yet!!!

Re: Calling All Bulldogs!!
Stink Bomb? Trailer? 4 day cruise? I haven't checked this site in 2 weeks and I'll be damned if the "Flyin Hawaiian" doesn't go out drop the big one. Mason, I'll be there for sure. We're trying to figure out if Laura and/or the kids will make it too. I plan on getting there by game time. Tell Taylor Edwards if he needs a tight end that can't catch, I'll be glad to suit up. My kids still laugh histerically every time I tell the story about warming up before the Laurel Park game and losing one in the sun_only to have it thump me in the forehead. Draper was laughing so hard I thought we were gonna' have to carry him to the hospital before the game started.

Are you still cruising that motorcycle? I hear Jeri Sue Arlege is planning a Harley ride on the parkway. If I can get my motorcyle license before 10/15, I might be game for a ride. If not, maybe I can tag along in somebody's side car.

Have you moved to Texas? What happened to Lexington? Hope your Mom is doing well.

Take care,

As Mr. Butler would always say to Warren:

"What we have here... Is a failure to communicate."

I'll be there! Save a seat for me.

Re: Calling All Bulldogs!!
Hi, Jeff Mason!
Thanks for your encouraging poetry. I couldn't agree with you more. This past January, I very hesitantly, went to the first planning meeting. That was it! After the first one, I was hooked. Lisa, Kenneth, Tommy, Cindy, Mary Ann, Gale and Ida made me feel so welcome.

Anyone out there who says they're not coming to our 25th Reunion because of their weight...come on down! I've probably gotten you beat. But...you know what? I'm still coming - big butt and all!!!! I'm 43, been married to the same jerk for 22 years, have a daughter who will be 21 in a few days, my son just turned 18 and it's time for me to get reacquainted with the people I spent a great deal of time with growing up...ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!!

I truly look forward to this - it's actually the first one I've attended. I know - shame on me. But, the jerk I've been married to... well. That's a whole 'nother subject. Don't laugh Tommy.

Jeff thanks again for your note. Hope to see EVERYONE soon.

Mmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!!! If anyone wants to know what that means... you'll have to come to the reunion.

Ruth Mangrum Donley

I used to be a "triple S", Single, Smart and Skinny. Now I'm "FGU" Fat, Gray and Ugly.
But I'm still going to our reunion!!!!!!!!!
