Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

“Birds sing after a storm. Why shouldn't we?”

- Rose Kennedy
(
1890-1995)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

  This Newsletter theme began with the quotation. I "chanced" upon it, and not knowing whether or not I'd have time to issue this Newsletter - or any Newsletter before next Sunday, also known as Mother's Day - I asked The Man if it suggested a song to him.  And of course, it did:

    From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 05/07/07 - "Re: To MIDI or Not to MIDI??"

Howzabout this one?

Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

The lyrics seemed apropos of recent events.

   Thank you so much, David!  Nobody does it better!

PET RULES

To be posted VERY LOW on the refrigerator door - nose height.

Dear Dogs and Cats,
The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food.  The other dishes are mine and contain my food.  Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate of food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack.  Beating me to the bottom is not the object.  Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.

I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed.  I am very sorry about this.  Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort.  Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep.  It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible.  I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.

For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom.  If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open.  I must exit through the same door I entered.  Also, I have been using the bathroom for years --canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.

The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt. I cannot stress this enough!

To pacify you, my dear pets, I have posted the following message on our front door:

To All  Non-Pet Owners Who Visit & Like to Complain About Our Pets

1. They live here.  You don't.
2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the furniture.    (That's why they call it "fur"niture.)
3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.
4. To you, it's an animal.  To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.

Remember: Dogs and cats are better than kids because they:

1. Eat less
2. Don't ask for money all the time
3. Are easier to train
4. Usually come when called
5. Never drive your car
6. Don't hang out with  drug-using friends
7. Don't smoke or drink
8. Don't worry about having to buy the latest fashions
9. Don't wear your clothes
10. Don't need a gazillion dollars for college, and
11. If they get pregnant, you can sell their children.

   GIGGLES!!!  Thanks, Sweetie!


  From Henry Hoyle ('65) of Northern Virginia - 05/06/07 - "Phil Hoyle to Iraq":

Hi Carol,

Your situation is in our prayers, and a check is in the mail to help out.

Attached is a picture of our son, Phil, his wife Tabitha, and 6 month old William Henry. Phil's Virginia Army National Guard unit has been mobilized. They are down in Mississippi for training, and then on to Iraq for a year. We will enjoy having Tabitha and William stay with us while Phil is away.

Henry

   WOWZERONI-YOWZERONI, Cousin Henry!  Such exciting (and unsettling) news!  As soon as I return, I'll process these images, double post this on the proper page, and rerun this whole note.  Meanwhile, we'll keep your entire family in our prayers.  Thanks so much, Sweetie - for everything!


From My Daughter-in-Law, Bethany Winona Harty (Siuslaw High, OR - '94) of IL - 05/06/07:

Hey you!

You know that if things ever get rough, you are welcome and wanted in our house!  We've told you all that before, silly :)  Besides, your grandkids would love to have you.  Don't think that you're on your own.  We love you guys!!!!!!!!

Bethany :)

   Ah, Sweet Bethany! Isn't it amazing how irrational your mama-in-law can grow when faced with enough stress?!?

   Thank you so much, Love; I really appreciate that!


From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 05/06/07 - "Neat Stuff & An Analogy":

Wisdom Tip No. - Prevent Infection

Dressing rooms and hotel carpets can harbor nasty bacteria. Always wear slippers or flip-flops to prevent infection. Don’t go barefoot in public places. Common conditions like athlete’s foot and plantar warts are contagious and can be passed trough contact with shower or locker room floors and pool surfaces.

The Prick

I don't like the prick.  I absolutely don't.

I give blood on a regular basis to the Red Cross.  Giving blood is not bad, it's the prick that bothers me the most.

They must test your blood to make sure that you have a minimum amount of hemoglobin.  If you are running very low on hemoglobin, you could pass out as you give blood.

They have this little finger "pricker" that makes a sound like a stapler.  Actually it feels like putting your finger into a stapler.  The nurse pricks your finger and then squeezes a drop of blood from the punctured fingertip.

It hurts.

The thing is, the finger prick hurts worse to me than giving a whole pint of blood.  That one little drop is more aggravation and pain than the pint.

For your information, it takes 7,296 drops to make one pint and you give one pint of blood (plus a few more test tubes) when you donate.

I realized 10 things about that prick and its accompanying pain:

1. Small nuisances can hurt much worse than big ones.

2. A small thing can help prevent a big problem.

3. If it's left up to us, most of us would forego the irritating precautions.

4. Only when things go wrong do we wish we'd taken the precaution.

5. It's no use complaining to the "pricker," they are just doing their jobs.

6. The bandage for the small prick was on my fingertip for everyone to see.

7. The bandage for the blood donation was on my arm and covered by my shirt.  Deeper wounds are often covered and hidden.

8. The small pricking made a lot of noise.

9. There was little danger in the small prick, but the big one could have a multitude of things go wrong.

10. Stop complaining about the little things; they aren't really all that big of a deal, and there isn't anything we can do about them anyway.

So, what's pricking you?

   Thanks, Shari!  These are great!

Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head


Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

[trumpet]

It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me
