    Sorry I can't be there, going to be out of town that weekend. But it does sound like a fun time. I just had my 40-year class reunion in June (SE class of '68) and have been on a nostalgic roll ever since!! Sounds like there are a lot of Grant grads in this thread. Any SE grads on here?

    First of all why would anyone admit going to S.E.? (Just kidding)...You will be sorely missed as there will be some 67-68 Grant people there (supposed to be). I am proud to say that I knew Bobby and Kay Murcer as well as their parents and brothers DeWayne and Randy. My prayers will always be with them. Bobby was a good guy.....Se ya next time............

    Gee, just like a Grant General...never giving up!! The rival still continues!!

    Yes, I knew Bobby and Kay very well too. Kay's sister and I were cheerleaders at SE together and remain good friends today. Bobby's memorial service last week was very nice...a great tribute to him. You do have to admit that SE produced some really good athletes in it's day.

    Hey, What Happened?

    1. Atlantic Mills was located on 29th & May where Grider's is now, Spartan's store
    was across from the Fair Ground...They merged spartan/Atlantic.
    2. Boy Scout Jamboree was held at the old Stockyards Coliseum along with the
    boy/Cub Scout Circus.
    3. Boxing championships were held in the Big Building in the Public Market.
    4. First McDonald's in OKC was on twenty-ninth on the south side east of the
    Economy Square shopping center.
    5. Besides Shepard Mall, there was a inside mall in Capitol Hill...On the south side of
    25th street next to the Knob Hill Theater. To you kids, that movie theater is now
    home of the Oklahoma Opry.

    Soonergirl, since you went to Southeast. Do you remember the Spartan getting painted Green when you naw:...........you're not that old.........Show you how smart kids are, a bunch of the football players, cheerleaders etc. painted you spartan, threw SIGNED bulletins all over South east. Of course, being signed meant getting caught......The only first string player that didn't go was the only one allowed to play that friday night....You guys beat us pitifully (54-6).....so, don't brag about painting Grant's cannon....It didn't show until spring of 1965.

    Have a good time when you are not there to protect your school at the Coney Island..............see ya next time....

    You guys are making me hungry. Anyone else remember those rolls at Harrigan's? Mmmmm.

    I was just a kid at the time but I have a vague memory of a restaurant shaped like a windmill on I-240. I think it may have been called Zeider Zee?

    I miss the old A&W on... I think it was 89th.

    Wasn't there a Diary Queen around 59th and May at one point?

    I have a very vague memory of when Capitol Hill was still in its hey day. I remember my parents taking me down there and I can vividly remember the flower shop that was down there... I remember the smell of roses and the cold, cold refrigerated air from the place. I also seem to remember window shopping... clothing stores, meat markets, etc.

    Okay, can someone help me out with something. When I was really little I remember my parents driving "way up" May Ave. to the original Grider's and on the way back home we would always pass this neon sign that had motion to it of a kangaroo hopping over something. Maybe a lock? Anyone have any idea what this might be?

    Anyone else remember looking for "the KTOK diamond" in Early Wine Park?

    Oh wow that makes me think of Captain Perdue in Red Rover, over. Now that's something I haven't thought of in years.

    Just remembered few other little things, remember when you got your class ring you had to wear it to where you could read it during your junior year and you turned it so everyone could read it during the senior year.

    then groups were divided inside grant you were either a DOPER, GOAT ROPER,PREPPY,JOCKS OR EINSTEIN.

    PEP ASSEMBLYS those were something else.

    You probably forgot that SE was a Jr.-Sr. High back then. I went to SE from 7th grade thru 12th. We beat Grant 54-6 in the fall of 1963...my 8th grade year. Bobby Murcer scored 3 of those touchdowns. No, I won't be there to protect my school next Saturday, so don't talk about us too much!! You'll have to schedule another one.

    I remember that we called the northsiders "Silkies"...and they called us "Greasers".

    Did you guys walk the halls before school? We would get to school early and walk down the hall, turn around and walk back....we did that back and forth (like a parade) until the bell rang for us to go to class. Was that just a SE thing?

    During my days in high school.....SE's hangout was the Del Rancho on 59th; Capitol Hill's was The Spot on Western; and Grant's was the Triple A on 59th (the A frame building next to Kenny Skaggs). We would drive from one to the other all night long.

    I- am sure there was a few that got there early,not me I gort there as late as possible haha. Now between classes yea we all would get together in the halls.

    Yea we cruised 59th between penn and down to sonic and then back again, I am sure I have a cowpath down there I can call my very own.That just brought back a weird memory that you mentioned that, I had this bright yellow pickup with a roll bar in the back and these big round fog lights on it.I turned them suckers on going down 59th and I am sure they blinded everyone! yup the cops pulled me over and said shut those things off now!! So i bought some yellow padded "KC" for light covers in the shape of a smily face and turned them back on and drove like that. Sure was funny to see those 2 smiley faces coming at ya (did not last long covers melted grrr)

    Remember when High School had "Smoking Areas"....
    I didn't smoke, but I hung out with people who did...We would be outside Freezing our Butts off...I finally got to where I would hang out in the library in the ams before class as I was freezing my butt off trying to act cool when I didn't even smoke...

    And me...I wasn't a preppy, jock, doper, nerd,goat roper.... I wasn't anything...how sad is that...no label at all...LOL

    That might have been Cherry's...not for sure....I really remember it when I was in grade school at Lee...so that might have been in the early 60's.

    I was skinny enough back then...only weighed 95 pounds my senior year. Yikes!

    Some of you mentioned the "Across the Street" restaurant at 59th & Agnew. I have a funny story about it.....

    When it first opened we went there after football games. One night my mom needed to get a hold of me and since it was new my mom called directory assitance to get their number. Here's how the dialog went......

    Mom: I need the number for Across the Street.
    Operator: What is the name?
    Mom: Across the Street.
    Operator (in a huffy voice): Ma'am, if you don't know who lives across the street I can't look up their number for you.

    The Operator then hung up on my mom.

    We laughed about that for years!!

    Harrigan's cheese rolls, oh yeah!

    I'm not sure about an A&W on S.W. 89th but there was one just south of S.W. 59th on S. Western.

    The Dairy Queen was near S.W. 50th & S. May on the west side of the street.

    Billie's Tastee Freeze was on S.W. 59th & S. May.
