“Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Can you believe it?!? Today marks the twentieth anniversary of our website. Thanks for all your generous support in so many ways!
BONUS #1 - The Anniversary Waltz - Bing Crosby - deliciously scratchy sound!
BONUS #2 - The Anniversary Waltz - Vera Lynn
BONUS #3 - The Anniversary Waltz - Connie Francis - with video of Lucy and Desi!
The Anniversary Waltz is a popular song written by Dave Franklin, the lyrics by Al Dubin. The song was published in 1941. It has been covered by Vera Lynn and Connie Francis. The title "Anniversary Waltz" is often mistakenly and confusingly used to refer to the entirely unrelated Anniversary Song.

GOOD MORNING, ... MEMBERS OF THE GLORIOUS TYPHOON
Well, here we are on another early Monday morning which I dub "Flickering Monday" since my satellite internet connection out here in the country is going in and out this morning. I hope Scotty isn't trying to beam me up in a Roswell moment. But have a great day and it should be a good one since we all should be well rested, had plenty of fun and the Spirit should have been topped off for another week. So, get things done, but always with a touch of fun, smile and be kind to all you meet. Remember, the only way others have of judging who and what you are is how you act around them. God be with you today and everyday. And if nothing else gets you going, maybe that little dog doing his jig will get you going. Back atcha' later.
Thank you, Jimmy!
|ABSOLUTELY! Thank you so much, Carlene! I truly believe that's one of the reasons we were put upon this earth - to help others understand just how truly important they are!|
From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 07/12/19, 12:05 AM:
