“The walls we build around us to keep sadness out
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Few singers have ever equaled the soothing velvet tones of Jim Reeves insofar as "comfort sounds". I don't know about you, but I'm in the mood for some comfort right about now.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKLUj892gHY - Jim Reeves - Four Walls, 1962
|"Four Walls" is a country song written in 1957 by Marvin Moore and George Campbell.|
From Elizabeth Tedder Nunnally ('65 / '68) of VA - 04/24/16 - "Carl Rossman(03 Jan 1948 - 24 Apr 2016)":
|Carl Rossman, widower of my sister
Tedder Rossman ('68)
(30 Dec 1949 - 11 May 2015), died
Carl and Joyce were both told that they had cancer within 2-days of each other last February or March, 2015. Joyce passed away May 7, 2015. Their son, Matthew, called me about 5:30 p.m. and let me know Carl had passed away. I do not know any memorial details but am hoping that I will be able to make the trip up to PA. Never know how I will feel from day to day or what my blood level will be. Please keep my sister's family -- son, daughter-in-law and daughter and granddaughter, along with me and my family in your prayers!
Oh, Elizabeth! I'm so very sorry to hear this! We will certainly keep all of y'all in our prayers!

Now, don’t get all excited thinking you’re going to read about chocolate papaya muffin tops or fennel sardine apricot bread. No, I’m talking about the stack of recipes I’ve clipped together and hung on the pegboard next to my work station in the King Arthur test kitchen. These are recipes I make over and over again–for potlucks, for bake sales, or for going-away lunches here at work.

|At a wedding ceremony, the pastor
asked if anyone had anything to say concerning the union of the bride
and groom. Everything quickly turned to chaos when a woman carrying a
child started walking towards the front.
Everybody was surprised, shocked, and the bride even fainted. The pastor asked the woman if she had anything to say.
The woman replied, "We can't hear in the back."
