From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 07/25/18:
 
  Thank you, Joan!
 
 


 From My Cousin, Jim Atkinson (John Randolph Tucker HS - '77) of AZ, Sonoran Pronghorn Recovery Coordinator at U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service - 07/25/17:
 

  GIGGLES! Thanks, Cousin Jim!
 
 


 From the Boy Most Likely to Succeed in the Class of 1965, Frank Blechman ('65) of Northern VA - 07/24/18:

I don't doubt that Mormon pioneer day is important to you, but I am shocked that you did not at least note that today is also the birthday of Simon Bolivar (1783), Alexandre Dumas (1802), and Amelia Earhart  (1897).
   WILD GIGGLES!
Thank you, Frank!
Never let it be said that I passed up an opportunity to shock you!

   I am reminded of the time a dozen years ago when I did a Marilyn Monroe (01 June 1926 - 05 Aug 1962) Birthday Newsletter, and   Bill Campbell ('54) of VA reminded me that it was Brigham Young's (01 June 1801 - 29 Aug 1877) birthday as well. I finally got around to doing such a Newsletter three years later, so I think there's hope for Amelia Earhart (at least) yet!


“Nobody goes to that restaurant anymore because it's too crowded.

A Little Less Talk

Words and Music by Toby Keith and Jim Femino

Recorded by Toby Keith (b. 08 July 1961), 1993
 

I was getting kinda tired of her endless chatter
Nothing I could say ever seemed to matter
So I took a little drive just to clear my head
I saw a flashing neon up ahead
It looked like a place to find some satisfaction
With a little less talk and a lot more action

I paid the man at the door and pushed my way to the bar
Shouted for a drink over a screaming guitar
A drunk on a stool tried to mess with my head
But I didn't even listen to a word he said
I knew somewhere amid all this distraction
Was a little less talk and a lot more action

A little less talk if you please
A lot more loving is what I need
Let's get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action

Well she was fighting them off at a corner table
She had a longneck bottle she was peeling the label
The look on her face it was perfectly clear
She said somebody please get me out of here
The look she shot me through the glass refraction
Said a little less talk and a lot more action

A little less talk if you please
A lot more loving is what I need
Let's get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action

A little less talk
A lot more loving
Let's get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action
Get on down to the main attraction
With a little less talk and a lot more action
