Patriot Day

“The brave die never, though they sleep in dust:
Their courage nerves a thousand living men.

- Minot J. Savage
(10 June 1841 - 22 May 1918)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Generally our observances here are happy ones.  This day is not one of those, nor is it a celebration, but as with so many things in history, it's important that we remember.

      From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 08/06/10 - "Update on locations - Class of 1965's 45-Year Reunion - Friday and Saturday, October 15 and 16, 2010 - OPEN TO ALL CLASSES!":

Friday evening we’ll meet at 7:00 PM at the home of    Lynn Walker Brothers ’65 and her husband Barry (York HS - '65).  They have graciously extended an offer to open their home for the event.  Light hors d’oeuvres will be served, and we would request a $5.00 donation to assist in covering the expenses for that evening if you attend.  The change in location was decided when members of the reunion committee thought the original location might not be as suitable for conversation as originally planned.  The Brothers residence is located at 304 Dogwood Drive, Newport News.  The telephone number is 757-595-4116.  We’ll post a map providing directions.

Vote every day for Grace. Thanks.

   Oh, Laura is your daughter, Norris! Well, that makes it all the more important!

   I've included the link to all the candidates named Grace, along with the image of The Real Grace, lest there be any confusion. As y'all can see, she's a Weimaraner from Richmond.

  From Mike Sisk ('63) of CA - 09/06/10 (but only just found hiding in my email on 09/10/10!  ):

Carol,

Several months ago I sent you a search and replace program that would correct all the freehost link problems on your entire website in about ten minutes.  Yet I see you are still telling people to change the links manually.

Would you like for me to make the changes for you?

I've done it many times, it is easy, and it will allow you to move on past the problem.

Let me know.

Mike Sisk

   TEN MINUTES?!? That sounds like a winning plan to me! I thought I had to do something dreadful - such as think, for instance - to pull this off! I like your story better! Thanks, Mike; let's do this on Monday!

Twins!! Hungry Twins!!

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) - 09/10/10 - "~Old Timers~ (#1 of 10)":

Carol,

Only one a day.

Garage Door

The boss walked into the office one morning not knowing his zipper was down and his fly area wide open. His assistant walked up to him and said, 'This morning when you left your house, did you close your garage door?' The boss told her he knew he'd closed the garage door, and walked into his office puzzled by the question. 

As he finished his paperwork, he suddenly noticed his fly was open, and zipped it up. He then understood his assistant's question about his 'garage door.'

He headed out for a cup of coffee and paused by her desk to ask, 'When my garage door was open, did you see my Hummer parked in there?' 

She smiled and said, 'No, I didn't. All I saw was an old mini van with two flat tires..

     Thanks, Norris!

God Bless the U.S.A.

- Lee Greenwood
 

If tomorrow all the things were gone
I worked for all my life
And I had to start again
With just my children and my wife

Thank my lucky stars
To be living here today
Cause the flag still stands for freedom
And they can't take that away

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'll gladly stand up next to you
And defend her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota
To the hills of Tennessee
Across the plains of Texas
From sea to shining sea

From Detroit down to Houston
And New York to L.A.
There's pride in every American heart
And it's time we stand and say...

That I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'ld gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.

And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
And I'ld gladly stand up next to you
And defend Her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt
I love this land
God Bless the U.S.A.
