09/05/13 - NNHS Newsletter - Five Minutes More“If we discovered that we only had five minutes left to say all that we wanted to say,
every telephone booth would be occupied by people calling other people
to stammer that they loved them.”

From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 09/04/13 - " Jamey (Douglas Bacon - '66 - of VA)":
|So proud of the
work you did for Jamie!
You are an artist of the word.
I love you,
Linda May '66
That's very nice of you to say so, Linda May, but "I didn't do nuffin'!" I wish I had been in a position to have helped, but the timing was certainly off for me. The real heroes of this venture are Malcolm Davis and Polly Norris Davis ( both '65 of VA) - as well as all those who were willing and able to contribute financially and physically to help Jamey! Our Typhoon Family is the best!
I love you, too, Linda May!
From Susie Overton Jones ('63) of VA - 09/04/13 - "Death update":
Please change the birth date of Livvie Benton to Nov 30, 1944.
Well, that was easy! Thank you for your attention to detail, Susie! You're a woman after my own heart!
From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 09/04/13 - "MOVING PUZZLE":
If you can put this puzzle together. You can pretty much say goodbye to Alzheimer's!
This is really clever and a bit challenging. As we older people are concerned with Alzheimer's disease, this puzzle may help dispel some fear. It's easy to put together if you are not affected by Alzheimer's disease, but impossible to do for someone with the disease. Give it a try. If this puzzle is particularly difficult for you, then your physician can offer you additional testing to check you for Alzheimer's.
Just remember, if you can put this puzzle together (regardless of how much time it takes), you do not have to fear Alzheimer's!
(NOTE: try placing the puzzle pieces on the outside of the play board first and watch the motion in the puzzle, too.)
A really neat puzzle!!
Thanks, Jimmy! That's very comforting - I think.....
