“But if we learn to think of it as anticipation, as learning,
Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's Newsletter theme comes to us by special request:
... Thought with your news about you relocating to Fayetteville perhaps you should reprise "Anticipation," Carly Simon's hit from 1971 in some future newsletter. Sounds like lots of good things going on -- you and Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of IL) deserve it...
Thanks, Normie - a great idea!

In light of this "revolting new development", as our household is one of those Major Users of Bandwidth, the remaining regular issues of the NNHS Newsletter THROUGH THE END OF MAY will be mostly imageless.
Please save your images or documents, as I'll not be able to post any of them, nor scan and post any new ones of my own except in extreme cases of need. (If they're already in my files, that's different.) Clip art will be kept to a minimum.
This will not apply of course to Memorial Editions.

Be sure your volume is on.
For you guys..., even tho the focus is on women I believe that men also have the same capacity for loving and caring about their families. So please read the words and let them touch your hearts too. J
Thank you so much, Joan!
This was something I
needed to read just now. The music and images only made it that much
From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 05/10/11 - "Wisdom and Common Sense from an American Political Sage":
LIVE EACH DAY AS IF IT WERE YOUR LAST AND LEARN AS IF YOU WOULD LIVE
"Never squat while wearing your spurs."
Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash, was one of the greatest political sages this country has ever known.
Enjoy the following:
1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.
2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
3. There are two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither works.
4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.
5. Always drink upstream from the herd.
6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it and put it back into your pocket.
8. There are three kinds of men:
-The ones that learn by reading.
-The few who learn by observation.
-The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.
9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.
11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.
12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.
The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.
ABOUT GROWING OLDER...
First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
Third ~ 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 some of the roads weren't paved.
Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth, think of Algebra.
Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it's such a nice change from being young.
Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.
Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.
Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft. Today it's called golf.
And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old
GIGGLES! Thanks again, Joan!

Putting Your "Past" in Perspective: It Really IS an Illusion
By Jeff Maziarek
Stop for a
moment right now and think of something that happened in your past
that you still carry some regrets about. Perhaps it's a botched
relationship, a job that you lost, a business that failed or a
business you failed to start, an accident you either caused or one
that affected you, etc. You can also complete this exercise by
thinking back to something pleasant that you experienced, such as
falling in love, getting a promotion, or having a wonderful time on
vacation. Whether what you experienced was positive or negative, as
you get in touch with that event or set of circumstances, realize
that what you are doing in effect, is time-traveling within your own
mind as you search through your bank of memories.
