“However small the injury he might be able to do to the foreigners
(Vikings), Brian preferred it to peace.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Not being in a particular creative mood at the moment, I thought as it's still the month of March, I'd go with a pun and choose a march - and why not an Irish march at that?

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 03/25/09 - "Something Sentimental":
Beautiful song, Shari - thanks!
From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 03/25/09 - "Birthday Clock - Pretty Cool":
YOUR BIRTHDAY CLOCK....FUN FOR EVERYONE...
It tells you how many hours and how many seconds you have been alive on this earth and when you were probably conceived. How cool is that?
This is cool. After you've finished reading the info, click again, and see
what the moon looked like the night you were born. This is neat. Who says
our time clocks aren't ticking....the people that think these things up have
way too much time on their hands..
Enjoy and have a fantastic day!!!
This is waaay cool! Thanks so much, Glenn!
From Bunny Booker ('65) of MI - 03/25/09, 3:51 PM:
I do read your Newsletters on occasions and appreciate all the work you do putting it together.
Oh, Bunny, I'm so very shocked and saddened to read this sad news! I
enjoyed corresponding with Cindy occasionally over the years. She was such a
beautiful and vibrant woman; I had no idea she was ill.
Please accept my sincerest sympathies on your loss. I pray your faith and memories will bring you comfort and solace.
From Rita Price - "Coffee together":
Works for hot chocolate too?
We can pretend we are sharing a good cup of coffee while enjoying...
Good Morning Blessings...
If you are a recipient of a blessing, keep the blessing working
by being the source of blessing to other people.
This morning when I awoke
And saw the sun above, I softly said, 'Good morning, Lord, Bless everyone I love.'
Right away I thought of you and said a loving prayer,
That He would bless you specially,
And keep you free from care.
I thought of all the happiness a day could hold in store,
I wished it all for you because no one deserves it more.
I felt so warm and good inside,
My heart was all aglow.
I know God heard my prayers for you,
He hears them all, you know.
Thanks so much, Rita! I don't drink coffee, but I'll take you up on that hot chocolate! Blessings to you, too!
From Norm Covert ('61) of MD - 03/25/09 - "More Saunders Stadium":
A photo of our press corps in the fall of 1958 in the Saunders Stadium Press Box is in order. Shown in this photo from the Anchor are (from left) Edward Travis, sports editor of The Times-Herald, Chick Damron of the Daily Press, and the inimitable Julian Rice, who loved NNHS with a passion, usually ran the clock and argued constantly with Coach Conn and the sports staff of both newspapers. He was a lovable curmudgeon.
Mr. Travis (and Charles Karmosky of the Daily Press) always allowed us to use staff game game photos in The Beacon and encouraged me to be a better reporter and writer. His advice sometimes made our advisor unhappy, but that's another story.
Like so many of us, I ran the steps of Saunders Stadium in fitness regimes, shivered in cold and rainy weather football games, enjoyed the magic of Turkey Day football against the Crabbers, and joined my band colleagues in warming our mouthpieces in our pockets so we could play the fight songs and start our halftime shows with the full front formation at the south goal line. Thanks for the memories.
Norm Covert ('61) MD
WOWZERS!!! Thank you so much, Normie!
From Pat Beck Letzinger ('57) of VA - 03/25/09:
No available server to handle this request
"Well, isn't that special?"
I've been reaching that same message off and on all week, Pat. It's annoying six ways from Tuesday, but this one's not my fault; it means the server (00freehost.com) is down or doing maintenance or something. The problem should resolve itself shortly; meanwhile, all I can tell you is to keep checking back from time to time.
Thanks for letting me know, Pat - keep the faith!
From Butch Ragland ('63) of CO - 03/12/09 - "Have a Giggle (#11 in a series of 13)":
After hearing me complain about my doctor getting on me about losing another 10 pounds my wife sent me the attached email for future excuses I can give him!
Have to admit I never thought of these and may use them next visit, when I know I will have probably gained another 10 pounds.
In case you need some newsletter filler sometime, I included the "Herman" comic attachments also!
Hope you enjoy them, and thanks again for keeping us in touch with our glory days.
GIGGLES!!! These are great, Butch - thanks!
