Thomas Jefferso
n's 272nd Birthday

“But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life,
and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.”

- Thomas Jefferson
(13 Apr 1743 - 04 July 1826)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   This observance is supposed to repeat every year.....

ALERT:

   My computer - or rather my FTP - is having problems uploading items to the internet. It will do it; it just requires six times longer to accomplish it. Something about too many files...

   At nearly the same moment, my daughter's actual computer began experiencing REAL problems - such as its imminent demise. We are therefore splitting computer time on my PC until some other arrangement can be made.

   Even without a crystal ball, I can foresee some serious delays in our future.

   No, wait a minute, this is happening in real time. Sigh.

   "Hold your hats, boys, here we go again!"


THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS:

     Happy Birthday today to   Gil Hughes ('64)!

     Happy Birthday tomorrow to   Linda DeShazo Hatchett (’65) of VA!

   Happy Birthday this week to:

15 -      George Helliesen ('61) of MI (soon to be VA) AND    Linda Bowen Uplinger ('63) of VA;

17 - David Jones ('57);

18 -      The late Monty Phillips ('62) (d. 15 Apr 2011) AND    Bill Wolfley ('70) of VA!

   Many Happy Returns to You All!

      Thank you so much, Sarah Sugah! This is SO disheartening to see - even worse than the beautiful azaleas which have been butchered into rigid shapes that never were meant to be! I think that Mr. Jefferson, Master Gardener that he was - would agree with me on both counts!


    From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 04/12/15:

         Thanks, Joyce!

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/12/15:
 

Three sisters, ages 92, 94, and 96, lived together. One night the 96-year-old drew a bath. She put one foot in and paused. "Was I getting in the tub or out?" she yelled.

The 94-year-old hollered back, "I don't know, I'll come up to see." She started up the stairs and stopped. She shouted, "Was I going up or going down?"

The 92-year-old was sitting at the kitchen table having tea, listening to her sisters. She shook her head and said, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful", and knocked on wood for good measure. Then she yelled, "I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door."

Liberty Song

Words by John Dickison *, 1778
Tune - "Heart of Oak"
 

Come, join hand in hand, brave Americans all,
And rouse your bold hearts at fair Liberty's call;
No tyrannous acts shall suppress your just claim,
Or stain with dishonor America's name.

Chorus
In Freedom we're born and in Freedom we'll live.
Our purses are ready. Steady, friends, steady;
Not as slaves, but as Freemen our money we'll give.

Our worthy forefathers, let's give them a cheer,
To climates unknown did courageously steer;
Thro' oceans to deserts for Freedom they came,
And dying, bequeath'd us their freedom and fame.

Chorus

The tree their own hands had to Liberty rear'd,
They lived to behold growing strong and revered;
With transport they cried, Now our wishes we gain,
For our children shall gather the fruits of our pain.

Chorus

Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all,
By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall;
In so righteous a cause let us hope to succeed,
For heaven approves of each generous deed.

Chorus

In Freedom we're born and in Freedom we'll live.
Our purses are ready. Steady, friends, steady;
Not as slaves, but as Freemen our money we'll give.
