08/24/15 - NNHS Newsletter - Barbara Ann
“The minute I heard my
first love story, I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet
somewhere. They're in each other all along.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Summer's winding down, but there's still time for some good ol' summer dance music!

|“Self-pity, personal withdrawal, or deep despair will not bring the peace, the assurance, or help which are needed. Rather, we must go forward, look upward, move onward, and rise heavenward.”|
Thanks so much, Susan!

long as my other hand. I was so excited I started clapping.”

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/23/15:
|A fellow bought a new Mercedes
and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive. The top was
down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he
decided to open her up.
As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him.
"There's no way they can catch a
Mercedes," he thought to himself and opened her up further. The needle
hit 90, 100.... Then the reality of the situation hit him. "What am I
doing?" he thought and pulled over.
