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
Thanks so much, Susan!
From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 01/17/18:
|Thank you, Joan!|
From WRAL-TV Weather of NC - 01/17/18:
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 01/15/18 - "Photos of Grand Opening of a Dairy Queen":
... 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.
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:
From Me ('65) of NC - 01/16/18:

|MAYBE SO! Thank you, Brenda!|

ship with a bomb is concerned, you just can't do it.”

From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 01/04/18 - "THIS AND THAT (#5 in a Series of 8)":
