Or do things worth the writing.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/17/15:

“Everybody in this life has their challenges and difficulties. That is part of our mortal test. The reason for some of these trials cannot be readily understood except on the basis of faith and hope because there is often a larger purpose which we do not always understand. Peace comes through hope.”

- James E. Faust
(31 July 1920 - 10 Aug 2007)

  From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 01/15/18 - "Photos of Grand Opening of a Dairy Queen":

Hi, TYPHOON Conduit:

... Our Dairy Queen reopened after restoration of the building that suffered fire damage. When I found the business closed, it brought great disappointment because I had intended several times to take a photo of the interior wall featuring a Grand Opening of a Dairy Queen location.

The manner of dress of the people in the photo indicates many have just come from Church, as a few of the men are holding their Bibles. Ladies in dresses. A rare scene.

To my delight, upon entering the restored building, I found that the portion of the building that was damaged by the fire was in the kitchen section.

So, I took that opportunity to snap a couple of photos for you to consider as a topic in your Newsletter.

Here are the two shots of the wall at the Wesley Chapel Dairy Queen, could not avoid the Red Trash Container in the first shot.

TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
 

     WOWZERONI! Thank you so much for these gems, Adonis!

   Even though they're from Wesley Chapel rather than Newport News, I've included them here to bring back sweet memories of times long gone:

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 01/16/18:

A football coach walked into the locker room before a big game, looked over to his star player and said, "I'm not supposed to let you play since you failed math, but we really need you in there. So, what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right, you can play."

The player agreed, so the coach looked into his eyes intently and asked, "Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this... What is two plus two?"

The player thought for a moment and then answered, "Four?"

"Did you say four?" the coach exclaimed, excited that he had given the right answer.

Suddenly, all the other players on the team began screaming, "Come on coach, give him another chance!"

Philadelphia Freedom

Written by
Elton John (b. 25 Mar 1947)

and

Bernie Taupin (b. 22 May 1950), 1975


I used to be a rolling stone
You know if the cause was right
I'd leave to find the answer on the road
I used to be a heart beating for someone
But the times have changed
The less I say the more my work gets done

`Cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom
From the day that I was born I've waved the flag
Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man
Yeah gave me peace of mind my daddy never had

Oh Philadelphia freedom shine on me, I love you
Shine a light through the eyes of the ones left behind
Shine a light shine a light
Shine a light won't you shine a light
Philadelphia freedom I love you, yes I do

If you choose to you can live your life alone
Some people choose the city
Some others choose the good old family home
I like living easy without family ties
Till the whippoorwill of freedom zapped me
Right between the eyes
