05/05/15 - NNHS Newsletter - The Way Old Friends Do

“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days.
An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it
meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.”

- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th and current  Dalai Lama
(b. 06 July 1935)

  This is a comforting song, wouldn't you agree? And who among us could not use a little comfort right now?

PRAYER REQUEST:

  From Elizabeth Tedder Nunnally ('65 / '68) of VA - 05/05/18 - "RE:   Joyce Tedder Rossman ('68) and her husband, Carl Rossman, of PA":

It is with a very heavy heart that I want to let my friends and family know that my sister, Joyce Tedder Rossman, is very ill. She was recovering from her auto accident when it was discovered that she had liver, lung and bone cancer. Two days before hers was found, her husband, Carl, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Joyce had been recovering at home. They have both been in chemo for 5 weeks or so. Carl is doing very well; Joyce, however, has had to be put back in the hospital, had her second blood transfusion but is not doing well at all. Carl called me this afternoon to let me know how bad she was and what kind of "set back" she was having. A week ago the doctors told her she might have 6-8 months but Carl said the time would be much shorter now with this setback. She called and told me about the cancer about 2 months ago but wanted me to wait for a little while before I announced it. My heart is broken but I wanted my friends to know what was going on. Please, please put them on your prayer list.

   Oh, Elizabeth, I am so very sorry to learn of this! I'm keeping all of y'all in my prayers, as are a great many other people, I am sure.

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/04/15:

QUESTION: Why did the chicken cross the road?

ANSWERS:
Pat Buchanan: To steal a job from a decent, hard-working American.
Machiavelli: The point is that the chicken crossed the road. Who cares why? The ends of crossing the road justify whatever motive there was.
Thomas de Torquemada: Give me ten minutes with the chicken and I'll find out.
Timothy Leary: Because that's the only kind of trip the Establishment would let it take.
The Bible: And God came down from the heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And the chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.
Fox Mulder: It was a government conspiracy.
Freud: The fact that you thought that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.
Darwin: Chickens, over great periods of time, have been naturally selected in such a way that they are now genetically predisposed to cross roads.
Richard M. Nixon: The chicken did not cross the road. I repeat, the chicken did not cross the road.
Oliver Stone: The question is not "Why did the chicken cross the road?" but is rather, "Who was crossing the road at the same time whom we overlooked in our haste to observe the chicken crossing?"
Jerry Seinfeld: Why does anyone cross a road? I mean, why doesn't anyone ever think to ask, "What the heck was this chicken doing walking around all over the place anyway?"
Martin Luther King, Jr.: I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.
Dirk Gently (Holistic Detective): I'm not exactly sure why, but right now I've got a horse in my bathroom.
Bill Gates: I have just released the new Chicken 2000, which will both cross roads AND balance your checkbook, though when it divides 3 by 2 it gets 1.4999999999.
M.C. Escher: That depends on which plane of reality the chicken was on at the time.
George Orwell: Because the government had fooled him into thinking that he was crossing the road of his own free will, when he was really only serving their interests.
Colonel Sanders: I missed one?
Plato: For the greater good.
Aristotle: To actualize its potential.
Karl Marx: It was a historical inevitability.
B.F. Skinner: Because the external influences, which had pervaded its sensorium from birth, had caused it to develop in such a fashion that it would tend to cross roads, even while believing these actions to be of its own freewill.
Jean-Paul Sartre: In order to act in good faith and be true to itself, the chicken found it necessary to cross the road.
Albert Einstein: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.
The Sphinx: You tell me.
Buddha: If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken nature.
Emily Dickenson: Because it could not stop for death.
Ralph Waldo Emerson: It didn't cross the road; it transcended it.
Ernest Hemingway: To die. In the rain.
Saddam Hussein: This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.
Saddam Hussein #2: It is the Mother of all Chickens.
Joseph Stalin: I don't care. Catch it. I need its eggs to make my omelet.
Dr. Seuss: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes the chicken crossed the road, but why he crossed, I've not been told!
O.J.: It didn't. I was playing golf with it at the time.

The Way Old Friends Do


Written and Composed by
Benny Andersson (b. 16 Dec 1946) and Björn Ulvaeus (25 Apr 1945)

Recorded by ABBA, 1980


You and I can share the silence
Finding comfort together
The way old friends do
And after fights and words of violence
We make up with each other
The way old friends do
Times of joy and times of sorrow
We will always see it through
Oh, I don't care what comes tomorrow
We can face it together
The way old friends do

You and I can share the silence
Finding comfort together
The way old friends do
And after fights and words of violence
We make up with each other
The way old friends do
Times of joy and times of sorrow
We will always see it through
Oh, I don't care what comes tomorrow
We can face it together
The way old friends do

We can face it together
The way old friends do
