Rainy Days and Mondays
“The drops of rain make a hole in the stone, not by violence, but by oft falling.”
Friends and Schoolmates,
A rainy Monday. That's a double-whammy. I suppose that explains a lot.....

"Rainy Days and Mondays" is a 1971 song by The Carpenters that went to #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and it was the duo's fourth #1 song on the Adult Contemporary singles chart.

From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 09/07/14, 6:16 PM - "Death of Gertrude Wilson":
Mother of Lowell Philbeck. It was in Friday's Daily Press. She was a very special friend to our family.
Thank you so much, Jean! When I first read this obituary, I thought that you yourself must certainly have known Mrs. Wilson, but I missed the NNHS connection. You have my deepest sympathies on the loss of your dear friend.
From My Friend, LaMerle, of VA and NC - 09/06/14 - "Spiders":
spiders won't bite unless they feel threatened, but it helps to know
which ones are really dangerous.
Thank you, LaMerle, for this valuable information!
From My Friend, Rob, of NC - 09/07/14 - "WALK NAKED IN AMERICA DAY":
Thank you, Rob! This, ahh, certainly sounds like, um, a plan..... I myself shall courteously refrain from participating for several reasons, most of which would become all too obvious.

|Notice to Employees (Includes
Part Time Workers)
We will no longer accept your doctors' statements as proof.
We believe if you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to work.
LEAVE OF ABSENCE FOR SURGERY
We are no longer allowing this practice. As long as you are employed here, you will need all of whatever you have and should not consider having anything removed. We hired you as you are, and to have anything removed would certainly make you less than we bargained for. Anyone having operations will be FIRED immediately.
In the event of extreme pregnancy, you will be allowed to go to the first aid room when the pains are FIVE MINUTES apart. If it is false labor, you will have to take an hour's leave without pay.
This will be accepted as an excuse, BUT we would like two weeks notice, as we feel it is your duty to teach someone your job prior to . . . or after death.
This new benefit program started yesterday.
