Robert E. Lee’s 207th Birthday

You can have anything you want - if you want it badly enough.
You can be anything you want to be, have anything you desire,
accomplish anything you set out to accomplish -
if you will hold to that desire with singleness of purpose.

- Robert Edward Lee
(19 Jan 1807 - 12 Oct 1870)


Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   We try to celebrate this very special day dear to the heart of all Virginians each year.

BONUS - Ashokan Farewell - Jay Ungar & Molly Mason Family Band

  Look! Here's our guy! Awake and feeling a bit better all the time!!

   Well, that's encouraging news!

He says to say, "Laura is my angel pie. She saved me."

NEWS FLASHES:

1. From Diane Sandler Marcus Marks ('69) of MD - 01/17/14 - "Change":

Carol,

As you might remember, my husband passed away 6 1/2 yrs ago. Well, I remarried last July a wonderful man I met in my bereavement group who's wife had passed away around the same time. I am lucky twice! Just to update you, my name is now Diane M. Marks, but for the sake of this website, please use the complete name: Diane Sandler Marcus Marks so all of my NNHS friends will know who I am!

Thanks again for everything you do to keep us all connected!
Diane

   WOW! How wonderful! Thanks for letting us know, Diane! I've amended your entry on the Alumni Page for your class.

   COOL BEANS! Thanks, Glenn!



    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 01/17/14 - "Paraprosdokians":

Paraprosdokians:

Winston Churchill loved them. They are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected, and are frequently humorous.

1. Where there's a will, I want to be in it.

2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list.

3. Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

4. If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

5. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

6. War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

7. Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

8. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism. To steal from many is research.

9. I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

10. In filling out an application, where it says, 'In case of emergency, Notify:' I put 'DOCTOR'.

11. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

12. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

13. I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.

14. To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

15. Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.

16 You're never too old to learn something stupid.

17. I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it’s getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

 

      Thanks, Jimmy - these are delightful!


       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 01/04/14 - "Paws for a Smile (#15 in a Series of 17)":

  Paws for a smile.......

You can’t help but smile.

     AWWW! How adorable! Thanks, George!

Ashokan Farewell

http://www.jayandmolly.com/ashokanfaq.shtml

Words by Grian MacGregor
Music by Jay Ungar, 1982


The sun is sinking low in the sky above Ashokan.
The pines and the willows know soon we will part.
There's a whisper in the wind of promises unspoken,
And a love that will always remain in my heart.

My thoughts will return to the sound of your laughter,
The magic of moving as one,
And a time we'll remember long ever after
The moonlight and music and dancing are done.

Will we climb the hills once more?
Will we walk the woods together?
Will I feel you holding me close once again?
Will every song we've sung stay with us forever?
Will you dance in my dreams or my arms until then?

Under the moon the mountains lie sleeping
Over the lake the stars shine.
They wonder if you and I will be keeping
The magic and music, or leave them behind.
