08/14/13 - NNHS Newsletter - Green Leaves of Summer
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time
to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep,
and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; ..... A time to love, and a time
to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”

-
Ecclesiastes 3: 1-4, 8 (KJV)

  From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 08/13/13 - "My Wife Is Always Nagging Me - Cute":

My Wife Is Always Nagging Me...

 
Does This Look Familiar ???
I just don't understand my wife.
She's always nagging me to keep things
around the house fixed.
I replaced the broken door latch on her car.  I installed new faucets in the kitchen sink.  I fixed the sagging kitchen cabinets.
     
 I replaced the rotten steps by the front door. She wanted a Porta-Potty" for when we went camping. She wanted more privacy in the bathroom.
     
 
I fixed everything she wanted....
And still, she isn't happy....! 
There are some women you just can't please!   

     Thanks, Ruthie!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/13/13:


The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers. He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?"

Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster the boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?"

"Yes," whispered the small voice.

"May I talk with him?" the man asked.

To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No."

Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?"

"Yes", came the answer.

"May I talk with her?"

Again the small voice whispered, "No".

Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person who should be there watching over the child.

"Is there anyone there besides you?" the boss asked the child.

"Yes" whispered the child, "A policeman."

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?"

"No, he's busy," whispered the child.

"Busy doing what?" asked the boss.

Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the fireman," came the whispered answer.

Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the ear piece on the phone the boss asked, "What is that noise?"

"A hello-copper," answered the whispering voice.

"What is going on there?" asked the boss, now alarmed.

In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper."

Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated, the boss asked, "Why are they there?"

Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle, "They're looking for me."

The Green Leaves of Summer

- Theme from the film The Alamo (1960)

Written by
Paul Francis Webster (20 Dec 1907 – 18 Mar 1984) and Dimitri Tiomkin (10 May 1894 – 11 Nov 1979)

Recorded by
The Brothers Four


A time to be reapin', a time to be sowin'.
The green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
'Twas so good to be young then, in a season of plenty,
When the catfish were jumpin' as high as the sky.

A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'.
A time to be courtin' a girl of your own.
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
And to stand by your wife at the moment of birth.

A time to be reapin', a time to be sowin'.
The green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
'Twas so good to be young then, with the sweet smell of apples,
And the owl in the pine tree a-winkin' his eye.

A time just for plantin', a time just for ploughin'.
A time just for livin', a place for to die.
'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
Now the green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.

'Twas so good to be young then, to be close to the earth,
Now the green leaves of Summer are callin' me home.
