From Phil Hammond ('64) - newly of FL - 07/16/11 - "Final Resting Place":
The Hammonds have relocated for the final time. Both of us are finally retired and love it. We now get to see our grandkids and go to their functions.
We sold the home in Park City and bought one in Jacksonville, Florida where we lived for 20 years before traveling around for work and the last 9 years in the ski industry. My joints give me trouble but will find a way to play golf and ski several weeks in the winter. I left my skis with a neighbor to make sure of that.
Carol, please post this,
Our new address:
Congratulations, Phil - and Sylvia! I hope you're enjoying your new-old home as much as we are!
From Delano Wray ('62) of MD - 07/17/11 - "Remove Del Wray (Delano) from Receiving Your Newsletter!":
Please discontinue sending the newsletter to me! I really can't make time in my schedule to be on a computer. Hope this will save you a tiny bit of work. While my life is filled with fond memories, to go back in the past too often could rob me of the joy I have in the present. Still, you are providing an invaluable service to all NNHS graduates and I thank you for that. Keep up the good work! Thanks again,
Del Wray, (Delano), Class of 1962
Certainly, Del! While we'll miss hearing from you, I can quite understand your feelings in this matter, and they are echoed by many people. Best wishes in all that you do!
From Jack Nelson ('54) of Northern VA - 07/17/11 - "Celebrate !":
|I just think this is so neat. It makes one
think back to the times when America was a kinder, gentler place to
live. You may have already seen other similar events take place around
the U.S. as other groups have done this before...

LIFE AFTER DEATH
"DO YOU BELIEVE IN LIFE AFTER DEATH?" THE BOSS ASKED ONE OF HIS EMPLOYEES.
"YES, SIR," THE NEW EMPLOYEE REPLIED.
"WELL, THEN, THAT MAKES EVERYTHING JUST FINE," THE BOSS WENT ON. "AFTER YOU LEFT EARLY YESTERDAY TO GO TO YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S FUNERAL, SHE STOPPED IN TO SEE YOU!
IT WAS PALM SUNDAY AND, BECAUSE OF A SORE THROAT, FIVE-YEAR-OLD JOHNNY STAYED HOME FROM CHURCH WITH A SITTER. WHEN THE FAMILY RETURNED HOME, THEY WERE CARRYING SEVERAL PALM BRANCHES. THE BOY ASKED WHAT THEY WERE FOR. "PEOPLE HELD THEM OVER JESUS' HEAD AS HE WALKED BY." WOULDN'T YOU KNOW IT, THE BOY FUMED. "THE ONE SUNDAY I DON'T GO, HE SHOWS UP.
ONE EASTER SUNDAY MORNING AS THE MINISTER WAS PREACHING THE CHILDREN'S SERMON, HE REACHED INTO HIS BAG OF PROPS AND PULLED OUT AN EGG. HE POINTED AT THE EGG AND ASKED THE CHILDREN, "WHAT'S IN HERE?" "I KNOW!" A LITTLE BOY EXCLAIMED. "PANTYHOSE ! "
SUPPORT A FAMILY
THE PROSPECTIVE FATHER-IN-LAW ASKED, "YOUNG MAN, CAN YOU SUPPORT A FAMILY?"
THE SURPRISED GROOM-TO-BE REPLIED, "WELL, NO. I WAS JUST PLANNING TO SUPPORT YOUR DAUGHTER. THE REST OF YOU WILL HAVE TO FEND FOR YOURSELVES."
FIRST TIME USHERS
A LITTLE BOY IN CHURCH FOR THE FIRST TIME WATCHED AS THE USHERS PASSED AROUND THE OFFERING PLATES.
WHEN THEY CAME NEAR HIS PEW, THE BOY SAID LOUDLY, "DON'T PAY FOR ME DADDY I'M UNDER FIVE."
CLIMB THE WALLS
"OH, I SURE AM HAPPY TO SEE YOU," THE LITTLE BOY SAID TO HIS GRANDMOTHER ON HIS MOTHER'S SIDE. "NOW MAYBE DADDY WILL DO THE TRICK HE HAS BEEN PROMISING US."
THE GRANDMOTHER WAS CURIOUS. "WHAT TRICK IS THAT?" SHE ASKED.
"I HEARD HIM TELL MOMMY THAT HE WOULD CLIMB THE WALLS IF YOU CAME TO VISIT," THE LITTLE BOY ANSWERED.
THE WATER PISTOL
WHEN MY THREE-YEAR-OLD SON OPENED THE BIRTHDAY GIFT FROM HIS GRANDMOTHER, HE DISCOVERED A WATER PISTOL... HE SQUEALED WITH DELIGHT AND HEADED FOR THE NEAREST SINK.
I WAS NOT SO PLEASED. I TURNED TO MOM AND SAID, "I'M SURPRISED AT YOU. DON'T YOU REMEMBER HOW WE USED TO DRIVE YOU CRAZY WITH WATER GUNS?"
MOM SMILED AND THEN REPLIED..... "I REMEMBER!!"
LITTLE JOHNNY ASKED HIS GRANDMA HOW OLD SHE WAS.
GRANDMA ANSWERED, "39 AND HOLDING."
JOHNNY THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT, AND THEN SAID, "AND HOW OLD WOULD YOU BE IF YOU LET GO?"
GIGGLES! Thanks, Dools!
From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 07/17/11 - "Take a Break":
... May your troubles be less, may your blessings be more, and
Don't take life so seriously!
KISS A LOT!
RELAX IN NATURE!

was sitting by his side. His eyes fluttered open and he said, “You are
Then he fell asleep again. His wife had never heard him say that, so she stayed by his side. A few minutes later, his eyes fluttered open and he said, “You are cute!”
The wife was disappointed because instead of “beautiful,” it was now
“cute.” She said, “What happened to ‘beautiful’?”
