BONUS #3 - http://www.angelfire.com/weird2/cluckmeat/music.html - Battle Hymn of the Republic - As much as a thrill it is to hear that version, I must tell you it's an even bigger thrill to sing it in a choir of near size as The Best Dressed Girl in the Class of 1959, My Sister, Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky of NC), My #5 Son, Nathaniel (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL - '97 - of IL), My #6 Son, Dale (Harty - (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - '02 - of CA) and I ('65 - of NC) did in Raleigh on Sunday, September 15, 2002.

THIS DAY IN 1965:

|“It isn't as bad as
you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. I say that to
myself every morning. It will all work out. If you do your best, it will
all work out. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and
confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not
forsake us....If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him,
if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers.”

From Phil Hammond ('64) of FL - 02/11/15 - "Paper Boy":
I would love to see the article in the Daily Press. I also delivered papers on my bike on 15th, 16th and 17th Streets in Stuart Gardens. I remember on Sunday mornings we would meet at Steve Sparkman's ('63) (01 Feb 1944 - 04 Feb 1999) house and go to Krispy Kreme for fresh hot donuts and coffee. Lehman Smith ('61) was also there. Paper cost 45 cents a week. Collecting every week was the worst, especially when customers would say, "I paid you last week"! I will never forget my dog Tippy followed me every where. One day she took off after a cat across 16th Street during rush hour and ran under a truck. I ran and picked her up and put her in my basket. She was fine after a few days. Thanks for the memories.
Certainly, Phil! The full article can be found here:
Before we moved to the Stuart Gardens Apartments in the summer of 1960, we lived in the larger Stuart Homes. Our paper boy there was ('61) Jimmy Moody (d. 08 June 2001). One day when we were embarrassed for not having any change to pay him (probably for the second week in a row), I broke into my nearly complete collection of Buffalo nickels. Somehow I never recovered them all...
From My Friend, Roshana, of NC - 02/11/15:
|EXACTLY! Thanks, Roshana!|
