From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 01/04/11 - "Leroy The Redneck Reindeer ":
I did not hear anything on the news about this, but did you know that Rudolph has been ill? He could not lead the sleigh this year and a cousin took over for him. Wow! I think he is from Roanoke, Va. or somewhere out that way. Anyway, enjoy the report. I did!

GIGGLES! Thanks, Dearest Judy!
From Eva Ellis Madagan ('61) of FL - 01/05/11 - "Red Skelton - 42 years ago. This is amazing.":
IN GOD WE TRUST
A skit from one of Red
Skelton's 1969 T.V. shows... WOW.....just think about it, he said this
on his T.V. show in 1969 & had no clue his words would ever come to
fruition. SAD, isn't it? What a wonderful and worthwhile clip to
watch and share with all your friends and acquaintances!
AMEN! Thank you so much, Eva!
From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 01/04/11:
|A prayer is never lost.
This is neat!
Each and everyone one of us is going through tough times right now, but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. Keep the faith.
My instructions were to pick four people that I wanted God to bless, and I picked you. Please pass this to at least (4) people you want to be blessed and a copy back to me.
This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive.
There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.
Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through your grace. Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' precious name. Amen.
(If the Lord lays upon your heart to send this to more than four people, you are truly blessed.)
Thank you so much, Norris Sweetie! You and I both are greatly blessed!

Nobody does snowmen quite like
Calvin and Hobbes!
Remember, if these made you laugh, share the smile with someone else.
Thanks, Wayne Honey!
