also keeps out the joy.

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

Faith and hope invite into our lives the sweet peace of conscience for which we all yearn.

   Thanks so much, Susan!


From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 04/26/18:

   Thank you, Joan!
 
 


 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/25/19, 8:58 AM - "Don't be a fawnnapper!":
 

  It's very common for moms to leave babies for the day while they forage. It's their hope that if they leave it near humans that it will help keep predators away. Doe will often hide fawns near your home or even right outside your home. This does not mean the baby is orphaned. Please contact a licensed Rehabilitator before moving a fawn. Unless they are crying, running around looking for the mom, or showing signs of dehydration or hunger, they should be left alone.

   Thank you, Shari, this is valuable information!

 
 


From Carlene Matthews Vannoy ('60 / '64) of VA - 04/25/19, 11:02 AM:
 

    Thanks, Carlene! That's it, exactly!

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/14/20, 12:01 AM - "Aww, a miracle, a needlepoint hack & HOPE." (#11 in a Series of 15):

 

I heard something I found heartwarming and thought I would pass on. People keep stating this is the beginning of a new way of life.

I do not know who to credit it to, but a female voice replied "No, this is just a bad period of time. God will not leave us in a diseased, poor and frightened state."  <3 That! 

I am hoping this will be it for me for a week or so. The good things we are all seeing, increased humor, kindness, and sweet and encouraging thoughts, to uplift. Let's hope these aspects won't be forgotten, amidst this horrible pandemic.  

   OOH! Thank you, Shari!

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. Or just because, after sitting for three hours at the computer, I need to bake something..."

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/25/19:
 

The cowboy was trying to buy a health insurance policy. The insurance agent was going down the list of standard questions.

"Ever have an accident?"

"Nope, nary a one."

"None? You've never had any accidents."

"Nope. Ain't had one. Never."

"Well, you said in this form you were bitten by a snake once. Wouldn't you consider that an accident?"

"Heck, no. That dang varmint bit me on purpose."

Four Walls

Written by Marvin Moore and George Campbell, 1957

Recorded by Jim Reeves (20 Aug 1923 – 31 July 1964), 1957


Out where the bright lights are glowing
You're drawn like a moth to a flame
You laugh while the wine's over-flowing
While I sit and whisper your name

Four walls to hear me
Four walls to see
Four walls too near me
Closing in on me

Sometimes I ask why I'm waiting
But my walls have nothing to say
I'm made for love, not for waiting
But here where you've left me, I'll stay

Four walls to hear me
Four walls to see
Four walls too near me
Closing in on me

One night with you is like heaven
And so, while I'm walking the floor
I'll listen for steps in the hallway
And wait for your knock on my door

Four walls to hear me
Four walls to see
Four walls too near me
Closing in on me
