From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 04/29/15:
|“Although the Lord
reassures us again and again that we “need not fear,” keeping a clear
perspective and seeing beyond this world is not always easy when we are
in the midst of trials.”

Thanks so much, Susan!

From Allan Hanrahan ('55) of VA -
repeated from 04/05/18:
I appreciate your Editions, and have even made a couple of modest contributions in the past.
May I place an ad on NNHS65? I would expect to pay for it, of course. It would be for a book of mine that has been selling for a few years now. Its title is "Times & Places: A Glimpse of Life on the Virginia Peninsula."
WOWZERONI! Certainly, Allan, I'd be delighted to promote your book!
It's now appearing in TYPHOONMART, and all advertising is free.
"A charming compilation of work from this keen observer of the Virginia Peninsula scene includes his line-drawings as well as his accompanying historical and local narrative. This is a must-have for the student of Virginia architecture and Virginia byways as these structures give way, one by one, to the wrecking ball." - Google Books
"If you want to learn more about the Peninsula’s history, this book,
which costs $12.95, is a quick and easy way to appreciate your
surroundings. It can be purchased on
amazon.com. Locally, it is available at Anderson's Home & Garden
Showplace,11250 Jefferson Ave., Newport News, at all Barnes & Noble
bookstores, and from the author at
firstname.lastname@example.org." - Daily Press, January 7, 2014
|What a great gift this would make for Mother's Day or Father's Day!|
From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 04/29/18 - "Just Saying.....":
|Am I getting to
I found this timely, because today I was in a store that sells sunglasses, and only sunglasses. A young lady walked over to me and asked, "What brings you in today? I looked at her and said, "I'm interested in buying a refrigerator." She didn't quite know how to respond.
I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it.
When people see a cat's litter box they always say, "Oh, do you have a cat?" Just once I want to say, "No, it's for company!"
Employment application blanks always ask who is to be called in case of an emergency. I think you should write, "An ambulance.”
The older you get the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.
The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.
Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL.
The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.
Did you ever notice that when you put the 2 words "The" and "IRS" together it spells "Theirs?"
Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know why I look this way. I've traveled a long way and a lot of the roads were not paved.
You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
Ah! Being young is beautiful but being old is comfortable.
Lord, keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.
May you always have:
Love to share,
Cash to spare,
And friends who care.
GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne!
From Drusilla West Groce ('56) of VA - 04/29/18:
|Thank you, Drusilla!|
From My Friend, Kristi, of NC - 04/29/18:
|Thanks, Kristi, that explains everything!|
