“Are you upset, little friend? Have you been lying awake
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme is not my fault, really it isn't. I had two or three other perfectly good ideas in mind which fell through for one reason or another. And then suddenly - there was Frank again, singing this song to me. I had nothing to do with it. I wasn't even in my Magic Shower at the time. Who knows why he does these things?

1. From Jimmy Smith ('62) of VA - 04/29/08 - "MEDICAL UPDATE":
GOOD MORNING, CAROL,
I JUST HEARD FROM MY HEART DOCTOR, HE SAID THAT I DID NOT HAVE ANYMORE BLOCKAGES AND THAT EVERYTHING LOOKED GOOD. HOWEVER, I STILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE THYROID AND TYPE 2 DIABETES CONCERNS. ALL THAT CAN BE HANDLED WITH MEDICATION AND DIET. SO, AGAIN THAT EVERYONE FOR THEIR PRAYERS THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS.
TAKE CARE, JIMMY
SUPER-DE-DUPER! Thanks for letting us know, Jimmy - and congratulations on your good report!
2. Jesse Kersey ('58) of VA:
From the Head Cheerleader of 1958, Evelyn Fryer Fish of TX - 04/29/08:
Just wanted to give you a heads up - Jesse (Kersey - '58 - of VA) is home now - but I know none of the details except he is attending our 50th Reunion. Perhaps you will get an update from whomever sent you the original email on Jesse. ?
Thanks for the Birthday Wish and Thank You for being there for EVERYONE.
That's great news, too, Evelyn! Thanks!
From My Cousin,Jim Atkinson (John Randolph Tucker HS) of AZ - 04/29/08 - "Ramblings from southwestern Arizona":
Thanks for continuing to send me your almost daily newsletters. It's nice to be able to follow along with some of the major events in all of your lives as I so seldom have the opportunity to visit otherwise.
I'm so glad you're enjoying them, Jim! Most non-Typhooners to whom I mail these tend to ask me, "Why do you keep sending me this stuff?!?"
WOWZERS!!! Thanks so much for that Richmond history, Jim - not to mention its "small world" content!
I really appreciate your Townsend quotation, too. I think whatever it is that excites a person's emotions and interests - particularly when not shared by most of the rest of us - can be related to this thought, if you stretch it a bit!
And I'm particularly delighted to know that you are where you most want to be, enjoying to the fullest all it has to offer. It's a wonderful - and sadly, rare - thing to be doing that which you most love!
Thanks for everything, Cousin Jim! Give my love to Jody and the boys!
From the Daily Press - 04/30/08 - "Hundreds displaced after Suffolk tornado":
On Tuesday, residents swapped "Where I was when the tornado hit" stories as
officials continued to assess the damage.
The tornado — which measured a quarter-mile at its widest — reduced homes to piles of sticks and bricks and tossed cars into buildings.
It cut a path of destruction 10 miles long and packed winds as high as 160 mph, ranking it a "strong EF 3" by the National Weather Service.
It rendered 150 homes uninhabitable, 1,200 damaged and hundreds of residents displaced.
Timothy M. Kaine — along with city officials, state and federal
Federal Emergency Management Agency representatives — toured the impact
sites Tuesday to assess the damages.
"The fact that a tornado of this size could come through in the heart of the day ... and did not lead to death is miraculous," Kaine said during a news conference Tuesday. "In the days ahead, it will be important that we stick together."
A preliminary report for Suffolk puts property damage at $18 million.
The funnel cloud hit neighborhoods north of downtown Suffolk shortly after 4 p.m. Monday.
Hillpoint Farms by the Nansemond River Golf Club was ground zero for the storm. There, it's hard to tell how many homes stood where piles of debris are now found.
It also wrought destruction in the nearby Burnetts Mill neighborhood and in the village of Driver in northern Suffolk.
Kaine pledged to press for federal aid. The first step was declaring a state of emergency, which he did Monday. The second step was assessing the damage.
In the next few days, he'll be able to find out whether it can be categorized a federal disaster area.....
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/29/08, 11:17 AM - "Have any of you used this?":
Geesh, finally going to sleep and it's closer to noon. Will try to respond tonight; sorry if I'm not seeming like a very good friend. Not even feeling like me, at the moment. Well, off to catch some zzzz, for me.
Back in the summer '78, I was trying to make my delicious Scandinavian roast beef in my pressure cooker. We had been Wal-Mart and Kroger-ing with our five little boys (ages seven to one) thirty miles away. It was about 9:00 PM, and we still had not had dinner, and I was exhausted, flustered, and a nervous wreck by then. I had melted the butter in the pressure cooker and was about to lower the five-pound roast into the pan when it slipped from the meat forks about twelve inches from its destination, and landed with a giant splash. The beef was fine, but the inside of my right forearm was drenched in hot - very hot - butter.
I washed in off with tepid to cool water as quickly as I could, but the pain was excruciating on that tender skin. It had left a large oval blister about two inches wide but four inches long by one inch high on my inner forearm, beginning about two inches from my wrist. (Actually, it very much resembled the Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, home of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, but I digress.)
We started popping and pouring those capsules on it every couple of hours or so. A couple of days later, I happened to encounter my nurse who insisted that come into the doctor's office and let her apply a loose bandage for protection, which I did. I am convinced, however, that it was the Vitamin E which did the trick. In a very short while, there was absolutely no evidence of anything wrong - nor is there to this day, almost 30 years later.
Take care of your baby girl, Shari!
"Will try to respond tonight; sorry if I'm not seeming like a very good friend. " ?!?
Are you saying that you're "posta" write back to people individually when their emails arrive?!? I thought that's why I started compiling Newsletters!

All My Tomorrows
- Words and Music by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen
Today I may not have a thing at all
Except for just a dream or two
But I've got lots of plans for tomorrow
And all my tomorrows belong to you
Right now it may not seem like spring at all
Were drifting and the laughs are few
But I've got rainbows planned for tomorrow
And all my tomorrows belong to you
No one knows better than I
That luck keeps passing me by ... that's fate
But with you there at my side
I'll soon be turning the tide ... just wait
As long as I've got arms that cling at all
It's you that I'll be clinging to
And all the dreams I dream, beg, or borrow
On some bright tomorrow they'll all come true
And all my bright tomorrows belong to you
