“When Freedom from her mountain height
Joseph Rodman Drake, The American Flag
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Naturally, this holiday celebration repeats each year that we are able:
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toX5cEKg5I8 - You're a Grand Old Flag
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k6_m6Wp-MmI - You're a Grand Old Flag - U.S. Army Band - Letter from Iraq, July 4, 2008 - created for Independence Day, I think it fits here quite well also
First - Thank you for asking about Monty and the rest of the family and for praying for us....especially Monty.
A few months ago, we had a scare. His tumor markers had risen to 367. Dr. Mattern changed his chemo. He has been pretty uncomfortable due to a hernia. This has made it difficult to sleep and get enough rest. Side effects of chemo have been no fun either. Last week, Dr. Mattern called Monty at home and gave him happy news. His tumor markers were down to 80. Of course, he called me and his loyal cousin Lanny with the good news. By the time I tracked Cookie (Phillips Tyndall - '64 - of VA) down, she already knew. Good news travels fast. It should! We love good news.
Pancreatic cancer is no little thing! Monty has done well with a very serious condition. It is due to a strong will and faith on his part and many prayers from many of you. Please keep it up. Nothing is too big or bad for God to fix. Thank you and
Love to you all!
PS Thanks to Annette and Cookie for keeping food going his way, too. He (and I) really appreciate it.
SUPER-DE-DUPER! Thanks, Dearest Judy! Give Monty our love!

From Frances Goodson Wang ('65) of MD - 06/13/10 - " Norm Covert ('61 - of MD)":
I can't find Norm's email since Devan got me a new computer and lost lots of info.
Please put this in your newsletter.
Sonny (Goodson - '66 - of VA) and I are so sad to hear about your little sister. It is so hard to lose those we love, those special people who have made our lives better and brighter. Our hearts go out to you and your family.
Call or write when you can.
Thank you, Frances! I posted this here as well:
From F.A. Saunders (Hampton HS - '64) of VA - 06/13/10 - "Change Email Address":
|Gotcha! Thanks, F.A.!|
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 06/13/10 - "God's Cake":
This is about the best thing I've ever read as an explanation.
We all wonder many, many, many times over, WHY?
Sometimes we wonder, "What did I do to deserve this?" or "Why did God have to do this to me?"
is a wonderful explanation! A daughter is telling her mother how
everything is going wrong - she's failing algebra, her boyfriend
broke up with her, and her best friend is moving away.
Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen. He can live anywhere in the universe, and He chose your heart.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well enjoy the ride.
I hope your day is a piece of cake.
Thanks, Paul - great reminder!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 06/12/10 - "HAVE A HAPPY WEEKEND - Last for a while":
this out early. I have too much to do and so little time. I hope next
week is a good one for you. Will write when I get settled.

Web Movie---Finding Joy
An amateur photographer was invited to dinner with friends and took along a few pictures to show the hostess.
She looked at the photos and commented, "These are very good! You must have a good camera."
He didn't make any comment, but, as he was leaving to go home he said, "That was a really delicious meal! You must have some very good pots."
"Get this." said one drinker to his friends at the bar, "Last night while I was here with you guys, a burglar broke into my house."
"Did he get anything?" his friends asked.
"Yeah, a broken jaw and two teeth knocked out. The wife thought it was me coming home drunk."
Mary and Jane are old friends. They have both been married to their husbands for a long time; Mary is upset because she thinks her husband doesn't find her attractive anymore.
"As I get older he doesn't bother to look at me!" Mary cries.
"I'm so sorry for you, as I get older my husband says I get more beautiful every day." replies Jane.
"Yes, but your
husband's an antique dealer!"
Thanks so much, Shari - and best wishes with your move!

FromArcaMax Jokes - 06/13/10:
Wedding and Golf?
The bride came down the aisle and when she reached the altar, the groom was standing there with his golf bag and clubs at his side.
She said, "What are your golf clubs doing here?"
He looked her right in the eye and said, "This isn't going to take all day, is it?"
The next day someone stole it.
