Spider (male class of '65) and Spider (female class of '68) brother and sister. Coach Elsau gave each one this nickname and he was the only one who ever used it for the sister.

Bogie, Bogie, Bogie! Your memory is slipping. Girl, Jim Williams was "Monk." I don't remember Jimmy Finch ever having a nickname. But, it was definitely "Monk" Williams. I saw him at the 2000(1) Reunion at FC. He looked like he could put on the pads and go.

Butch!!
You are so right! (I knew that!) Williams is exactly who I had in mind when I wrote Finch! (That excuse always works!) I wish you could see my yearbook--he wrote "You were lucky! Monk was here!" I always questioned WHY I was sooooooooo lucky!! Someone (not me, I really don't know who!!) came along and put an "un-" in front of "lucky"! Do you suppose they knew something I didn't? Was it you?
As a matter of fact, the 1960 yearbook is probably my favorite of all 4 years I was in FCHS. Everyone in your class wrote such great and meaningful things...................
"Best wishes", "Lots of luck", "Best of luck, always", "To a very nice girl", etc, etc!!
But there are a few really great quotes: Tommy Schmitz wrote, " Like today, you are a pest, tomorrow, well that's another day, but I'll bet you'll still be wondering what's happening today." (I must have caught him at the pool that summer of '60) "To my neighbor down the street--gimme a light!" Danny Harrellson. (That was a private joke!)
Mimi wrote, "It has really been fun being associated with you this year. You are really a darling girl with a good personality. Best Wishes. Love."
See what I mean? The class of '60 rocks!! (Of course, the class of '62 rocks too!!)
