Or my YouTube homepage below that includes all of my own uploads...again with an oldtimer's slant. 



Please note that the photos of each of the programs below were taken from moving pictures, and that the actual television shows will not have the fuzzy , indistinct look that the single images have.  Also, if you begin a video, stop it before starting another, otherwise you will hear both audio's at the same time.

The Dennis O'Keefe Show - June Thursday (1960)

An episode of "The Dennis O'Keefe Show" entitled "June Thursday", which aired 10 May 1960 on the CBS Television Network. It was produced by United Artists Television. This show is a fairly straight-foward and unremarkable sitcom, though it's not too bad. It could have done though without the annoying laugh-track.

Alfred Hitchcock Presents - The Cheyney Vase (1955)

Mildly entertaining story with a pretty good portrayal of a scumbag of a con man by Darren McGavin.

Author Gary Shaw - WHS '59


Gary Shaw, Washougal Class of 1959 is in the process of authoring a set of 6 books, titled The Eric English Chronicles, set in and around the Camas-Washougal area from the early 1960's through the present. I have attached a file that he sent me prefacing information about the books as well as introducing and relating a little about the main characters.... Also included is an outline of the happenings in the 19th Chapter of Book 1 intended for the  publishers. It is not the chapter itself. Here now is the author. Click on the orange to open.

Dick Schaefer (WHS '55) has written a new book that he has published on Amazon. Its' title is The Final Conflict, and a download to your Kindle is available for $4.99. If you do not have a Kindle, a free Kindle application is available for downloading to your PC that will allow you read the book on it.  Simply click on this link to get to Dick's book:  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AJB3SD6

Here is a brief synopsis of the book.

A small town man is thrust into 11 days of conflict over Christmas of 1972, against the best air defense structure ever faced by strategic bombers to achieve President Nixon’s "Peace with Honor" exit strategy against North Viet Nam.
This is the Viet Nam "12 O’Clock High" told from the standpoint of the crew force flying the mission: telling the TRUE story----not the written history documented in the archives of the Strategic Air Command.

Dick informs me that his earlier book Mill Town is still available by mail for $15 including shipping from his address. Scroll down to the bottom of this main page for more information.

The following has nothing whatsoever to do with Washougal senior alumni or nostalgia. It is a small widget that connects every 10 seconds with a random webcam across the world. Some will work, some will not, but when they do, they work well, delivering real time moving images of sights around the world.
Simply click on the lettering name just below the image (not on the image itself as that will open an ad) and the webcam will open in a new larger window. It may take as much as a half minute to begin but when and if it does, it can be very rewarding....it does require a Java application which, if you don't have already, will be offered as a download right then and there.....it also works better with the Firefox browser than it does with Internet Explorer.
