HEALTH UPDATE:

    From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 03/11/14:

Well, happy day on the beautiful SPRING day in Virginia. 

My news, is … I survived my total knee replacement ‘re-do’ surgery (2/24/14) and returned home today from the rehab center.  Things have gone remarkably well. 

May the world hug you today
With its warmth, and love
And may the wind carry a voice
That tells you there is a friend
Sitting in another corner of the world wishing you well!

I wonder if anyone knows any of the other people in this picture? That would be interesting.

   WOWZERONI-RINI! Thank you so much, Malcolm! This treasure has certainly earned a place in our archive!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 03/11/14:

A widower who never paid any attention to his wife while she was alive now found himself missing her desperately.

He went to a psychic to see if he could contact his late wife. The psychic went into a trance. A strange breeze wafted through the darkened room, and suddenly, the man heard the unmistakable voice of his dearly departed wife.

"Honey!" he cried. "Is that you?"

"Yes, my husband."

"Are you happy?"

"Yes, my husband."

"Happier than you were with me?"

"Yes, my husband."

"Then Heaven must be an amazing place!"

"I'm not in Heaven, dear."

Red Is the Rose
 

Come over the hills, my bonnie Irish lass
Come over the hills to your darling
You choose the rose, love, and I'll make the vow
And I'll be your true love forever.

Chorus
Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows
Fair is the lily of the valley
Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne
But my love is fairer than any.

'Twas down by Killarney's green woods that we strayed
When the moon and the stars they were shining
The moon shone its rays on her locks of golden hair
And she swore she'd be my love forever.

Chorus

It's not for the parting that my sister pains
It's not for the grief of my mother
'Tis all for the loss of my bonny Irish lass
That my heart is breaking forever.

Chorus
