this info. Received from
Buddy David ('61 of
VA) - 05/02/17, 8:22 AM.
heavy heart, I report to you that
Joan Davis Corley passed away. She rarely, if ever, missed a reunion
and always looked forward to them and being a part of them, which she
surely was. There will be a Celebration of Life service at West Hampton
Baptist church at 831 Aberdeen Road, Hampton at 6 p.m. on Thursday May
E.D. "Buddy" David
I'm so sorry to learn this; thank you so much for passing it along,
have my sympathies on the loss of your classmate.
Pending publication of Joan's obituary, I have added her listing to the In Memoriam page for your class.

From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 05/02/17 - "How to Simulate Being in the Navy":
|How to Simulate Being in the Navy
1. Buy a steel dumpster, paint it gray inside and out, and live in it for six months.
2. Run all the pipes and wires in your house exposed on the walls.
3. Repaint your entire house every month using gray paint.
4. Renovate your bathroom. Lower all showerheads to four and one-half feet off the deck.
5. When you take showers, make sure you turn off the water while you soap down.
6. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, turn water heater temperature up to 300 degrees. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, turn water heater off.
7. On Saturdays and Sundays tell your family they used too much water during the week, so no bathing will be allowed.
8. Put 5W-20 lube oil in your humidifier, instead of water, and set it on high.
9. Leave your lawn mower running in your living room 24 hours a day to maintain proper ambient noise level.
10. Once a month, COMPLETELY disassemble all your major appliances and electric garden tools, inspect them and then reassemble them. Do this every week with your lawnmower, weed whacker and other gasoline powered tools too.
11. Once a week blow compressed air up through your chimney, making sure the wind carries the soot across and onto your neighbor's house. Laugh at him when he curses you.
12. Raise the thresholds and lower the headers of your front and back doors, so that you either trip or bang your head every time you pass through them.
13. Raise your bed to within 6 inches of the ceiling, so you can't turn over without getting out and then getting back in.
14. Have a fluorescent lamp installed on the bottom of your coffee table and lie under it to read books.
15. Sleep on the shelf in your closet. Replace the closet door with a curtain. Have your spouse whip open the curtain about 4 hours after you go to sleep, shine a flashlight in your eyes, and say "Sorry, wrong rack."
16. Make each member your family qualify to operate each appliance in your house i.e., dishwasher operator, blender technician, stove vent fan specialist, etc.
17. Find the absolute dumbest guy in the neighborhood and make him your boss for the next two years.
18. Have a neighbor come over each day at 5 am, blow a whistle so loud Helen Keller could hear it, and shout "Reveille, reveille, all hands heave out."
19. Have your mother-in-law write down everything she's going to do the following day, then have her make you stand in your back yard at 6 A.M. while she reads it to you.
20. Empty all the garbage bins in your house and sweep the driveway four times a day, whether it needs it or not.
21. Have your neighbor collect all your mail for a month, read your magazines, and randomly lose every 5th item before delivering it to you.
22. Watch no TV except for movies played in the middle of the night. Have your family vote on which movie to watch, and then show a different one.
23. When your children are in bed, run into their room with a megaphone shouting that your home is under attack and ordering them to their battle stations.
24. Post a menu on the kitchen door informing your family that they are having steak for dinner. Then make them wait in line for an hour. When they finally get to the kitchen, tell them you are out of steak, but they can have dried ham or hot dogs. Repeat daily until they ignore the menu and just ask for hot dogs.
25. Get up every night around midnight and have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on stale bread.
26. Set your alarm clock to go off at random times during the night. At the alarm, jump up and dress as fast as you can, making sure to button your top shirt button and tuck your pants into your socks. Run out into the back yard and uncoil the garden hose and coil it back up.
27. Make coffee using eighteen scoops of budget priced coffee grounds per pot, and allow the pot to simmer for 5 hours before drinking.
28. When there is a thunderstorm in your area, get a wobbly rocking chair, sit in it and rock as hard as you can until you become nauseous.
29. Walk around your car for 4 hours checking the tire pressure every 15 minutes.
30. Have the paperboy give you a haircut with your hedge shears.
WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Billy - for everything!
