From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 08/30/05:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! That's the good news; the bad news: YOU'RE NOW AS OLD AS I AM!!!
GIGGLES! Thanks, Wayne Honey!
That's not so bad; it seems to work just fine for you, and as you know -
"I'm still just a kid!"

love, joy, and peace, friends and family. Those are the things that matter. Thank you again for all that you
have done to bind us together, Typhoons forever...none of my friends can comprehend this network that I
talk about...Many more happy birthdays to come.
Love, Jean (Poole) Burton '64
Oh, WOW, Jean! You made
me all "chokey" Thanks so much! We do have some something special
if it's not always readily understood, that's sad. But I'm so glad we have it!

OHHH, thank you, Alice! We'd love to have a copy of that picture - and your poem!
And thanks again - it's wonderful to be back where I belong!

doesn't look quite the

Speaking of which.....
From My Niece, Shari of VA - 08/30/05:

contributions opportunities given at this site with free donations with a click

if you’ll scroll down. PLEASE PASS ON.
Have a nice night,
Thanks so much, Shari! This is easy enough for all of us to do!
Now is definitely a time to act and do whatever it is you feel inspired to do to make a difference.
The Red Cross is a great place to start:
From Janice McCain Rose ('65) of VA - 08/30/05 - "Help the Animals":
My sweet daughter-in-law, Karen,
thought that I should send a picture from the hurricane site...(I thought the
of my dog looking sad would appeal)...however, the tragic story needs to get everyone's attention......the attached
picture is a perfect example of one of the animals in distress and in need of rescue.......please help if you can...
Thanks, Janice. How tragic this
situation is - for so many! Please help!
By the way, Janice, your pretty little puppy dog is precious! Thanks for sending her picture!
From Jo Ann Stewart ('64) of TX - 08/30/05:
Hi Carol -
Didn't know you were back "on" so I checked - Yea!!.
Haven't gotten a newsletter so you must be using my
work addy which doesn't work very well - too many filters on it. Be sure and send them to ..... I missed you!!!!
Jo Ann Stewart
Jo Ann! I'm glad you found us again! I switched your email addy
accordingly. You only missed about 15
Newsletters; it shouldn't take you too long - GIGGLES!!!
Thanks for looking. I was gone so long I was afraid everyone would have lost interest permanently.

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
On the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below can't bother me
Let me tell you now
When I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)
On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof (up on the roof)
brief instrumental-chiefly strings
At night the stars put on a show for free
And, darling, you can share it all with me
I keep a-tellin' you
Right smack dab in the middle of town
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof (up on the roof)
And if this world starts getting you down
There's room enough for two
Up on the roof (up on the roof)
Up on the roo-oo-oof (up on the roof)
Oh, come on, baby (up on the roof)
Oh, come on, honey (up on the roof)
Everything is all right (up on the roof)
