From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 03/25/15:

“The battle for self-discipline may leave you a bit bruised and battered but always a better person. Self-discipline is a rigorous process at best; too many of us want it to be effortless and painless. Should temporary setbacks afflict us, a very significant part of our struggle for self-discipline is the determination and the courage to try again.....”

- Thomas S. Monson, April 2002
(b. 21 Aug 1927)

   Thanks so much, Susan!


SAD NEWS:

 From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 03/26/17, 10:06 AM:

I just wanted to inform (you) that the wife of our (1960) classmate, Jimmy Johnson, passed away on Thursday, March 23, 2017. Robin Lynch Johnson was a beautiful girl and I knew her in college as she was most popular and a cheerleader. My first two years were spent at Chowan College (University) where I became acquainted with her. The obituary is in the Daily Press Saturday, March 25. She graduated from Hampton High School in 1962 and Chowan in 1964. Chowan College was a two year school at that time. Her funeral will be tomorrow, Sunday, March 26 at Grace Baptist Church in Hampton (805 Todds Lane) at 4:00 p.m. with the visitation prior, at 03:00. There was no picture of her in the newspaper, only the obituary.

Best Regards,

Fred Mays of Newport News, VA

   Oh, Fred, I'm so sorry! I had read Robin's obituary, but did not make the connection. My sincerest condolences are extended to Jimmy and his family.

Three boys were arguing about whose father was the fastest.

The third boy, "You actually don't understand what speed is. My father is even quicker! He finishes work at 4:30 pm, but he's back home by 3:45 pm almost every day."

Funny How Time Slips Away

Written by
Willie Nelson (b. 29 Apr 1933), 1961
 

Well, hello there.
My, it's been a long, long time
And how am I doing?
Oh, I guess that I'm doing fine.
It's been so long now,
But it seems now that it was only yesterday.
Gee, ain't it funny, how time just slips away?

And how's your new love?
Well, I hope that he's doing fine.
But I heard you told him
That you'd love him till the end of time.
Now, that's the same thing that you told me,
And it seems like only yesterday.
Gee, ain't it funny, how time just slips away?

Well, I gotta go now,
And I guess I'll see you around,
But I don't know when, though,
'Cause I never know when I'll be back in town,
But remember, what I tell you,
That in time you're gonna pay,
And it's surprising, how time just slips away.
