“Life is a mosaic of pleasure and pain -
grief is an interval between two moments
Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I think I tried using this song years ago and was unable to locate it - proving (I suppose) that all things come to those who wait.

OOOH! Thanks, Joyce!
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 01/28/10 - "BORDERS":
Have you seen this one? Why
are we so stupid? Is it a natural trait or did we have to work on it? Being
stupid does take some effort!! I mean, just think of all the things you have to
remember to do incorrectly. Forrest had it right: "Stupid is as stupid does."
I just want to make sure I got this right:
|Thanks, Wayne Honey! Hey, is this the greatest country in the world or what?!?|
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 10/2810 - "As Time Passes...":
As Time Passes...
A group of 40 years old buddies discuss and discuss where they should meet for dinner.
Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen restaurant because the waitresses there have low cut blouses and nice breasts.
10 years later, at 50 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen because the food there is very good and the wine selection is good also.
10 years later at 60 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen because they can eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant is smoke free.
10 years later, at 70 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen because the restaurant is wheel chair accessible and they even have an elevator.
10 years later, at 80 years of age, the group meets again and once again they discuss and discuss where they should meet. Finally it is agreed upon that they should meet at the Gausthof zum Lowen because that would be a great idea because they have never been there before.
|Thanks, Bill! And I'm sorry to disagree with you, but this is downright hysterical!|

All In The Math
Rushing to work, I was driving too fast and as a result was pulled over by the highway patrol. The state trooper noticed that my shirt had the name of a local high school on it. "I teach math there," I explained.
The trooper smiled, and said, "Okay, here's a problem. A teacher is speeding down the highway at 16 m.p.h. over the limit. At $12 for every mile, plus $40 court costs, plus the rise in her insurance, what's her total cost?"
I replied, "Taking that total, subtracting the low salary I receive, multiplying by the number of kids who hate math, then adding to that the fact that none of us would be anywhere without teachers, I'd say zero."
He handed me back my license. "Math was never my favorite subject," he admitted. "Please slow down."
A Bit Of Wisdom
"The happiest people are rarely the richest, or the most beautiful, or even the most talented... Their eyes are turned outward; they are aware, compassionate. They have the capacity to love."

Borrowed the Car
After shopping for most of the day, a couple returns to find their car has been stolen. They go to the police station to make a full report. Then, a detective drives them back to the parking lot to see if any evidence can be found at the scene of the crime. To their amazement, the car has been returned.
There is an envelope on the windshield with a note of apology and two tickets to a music concert. The note reads, "I apologize for taking your car, but my wife was having a baby and I had to hot-wire your ignition to rush her to the hospital. Please forgive the inconvenience. Here are two tickets for tonight's concert of Garth Brooks, the country-and-western music star."
Their faith in humanity restored, the couple attend the concert and return home late. They find their house has been robbed. Valuable goods have been taken from throughout the house, from basement to attic. And, there is a note on the door reading, "Well, you still have your car. I have to put my newly born kid through college somehow, don't I?"
Problem with a Dog
Police officer: Excuse me, but your dog has been chasing a man on his bicycle.
Dog owner: Are you crazy? My dog can't even ride a bicycle.

Eighteen yellow roses came today....
Eighteen yellow roses in a pretty bouquet
When the boy came to the door
I didn't know what to say....
But eighteen yellow roses came today.
I opened up the card to see what it said...
I couldn't believe my eyes
When I had read....
Though you belong to another, I love you anyway.
Yes. eighteen yellow roses came today
I never doubted your love for a minute
I always thought that you would be true
But now this box and the flowers in it
I guess there's nothin' left for me to do.....
But ask to meet the boy that's done this thing
And find out if he's got plans to buy you a ring
'Cause eighteen yellow roses will wilt and die one day....
But a father's love will never fade away...
Will never fade away..............
