Thanks for the info on Kevin and Diane. I liked both of them; they were good people.
I knew a Scn. couple, Jon and June Knutson. She came from a Spanish family, and had beautiful bronze skin. Jon had a brother who was also in Scn., but I can't recall his name.
The dark haired guy with the jeep was Steve something-or-other, and he was a course sup who dug swimming pools on the side. He had an old beat-up Jeep Wrangler. Does that sound right?
Steve had dark hair and a bushy moustache when I was there, and he always looked a bit unkempt, with his hair being somewhat wild, and that bushy moustache.
There were some great bullbaiters, expecially Mike Sullivan, who did this thing about having had throat cancer, and talking with one of those buzzing things you place against your throat. I thought I'd never get through that session! I still crack up thinking about it. I remember the Donald Duck having an orgasm thing, and I think severa people did it. Bullbaiting was our Scn. entertainment. As sup's, we had lots of opportunities to see great bullbaiting, and that is why sup's made such good bullbaiters, because they got lots of great ideas from their students. I swear Deane MacDonald could crack up ANYONE in 30 seconds flat, she was that good. I think she did the Donald Duck thing, too, and a lot of stuff about blow jobs. I had to pass TR's with her testing me, and she was tough, so I was SURE I had been flattened on most bullbaiting possibilities.
"I declare it's marked out just like a giant chess board!"
"Weak tea and treacle."
Twas brillig and the slithey tothes, gyred and gimballed in the wabe.
All mimsy were the borogroves, and the momeraths outgrabe." (As I recall it.....)
And my favorite:
"Why, I’m afraid I can’t explain myself, sir, because I’m not myself, you know..."
That quote applies to staff members trying to explain why they didn't "make things go right"!
I should remember Brad Fox, and the name is very familiar, but I can't get a face at all, nor one of Slim Spurling.
The big hunky blonde Randy, I think ended up marrying Kathy in Qual, and they were a great couple. He was not on staff when I was there, but she was in Qual.
Barb and Bob Ewing ring a bell, didn't they have several kids, and they were public? I think I recall one of our staff, Mike Lowe, got Barb using Spirulina during one of her pregnancies, and she said it kept her from having morning sickness.
I believe I recall Brenda; I think Dwight had a crush on her. She was a very sweet and upbeat lady, and quite attractive. Dee Hoogstra sounds familiar, too and I recall Mona Braun, too. Sort of a sad expression on her face all the time?
My best friend, Chris Davis, resigned from Scientology about the time I did. He had done most of his NOT's, and since he had had diabeties since his youth, had to have a kidney transplant.
He did very well for about a year, and then one day his mom called me and said he had died. I can't recall his ex-wife's name, maybe Marnie. He died in 1984 or 1985. Chris was a good guy, and I sure miss him.
The name Charlie makes me think of one public student who took a lot of training courses, and was co-auditing Dianetics through the Levels. If this is the same guy I'm thinking of, he was a sup's nightmare, and gave these long-winded strange "wins" at the end of course time. Course sup's would pull their hair out hearing some of these oddball "wins" that contained all sorts of altered tech and crazy new realizations. Other students would have to be "rehabbed" from hearing some of these nutty "wins" the students volunteered.
:):):):) He would also use a lot of jargon, so half of the newbie students would need some serious word clearing next session, if they didn't blow entirely from hearing the crazy stuff.
We finally ended up separating the newbie students from the experienced ones, because of the "wins".
Wish I could recall some more names.........
