From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 09/19/17:

   Thank you, Joan!

 From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 09/18/17:

Heard Peter and Gordon live at Keene State College (NH) early on, 1964 or 1965. Heard Dave Brubeck there about the same time and liked that much better.

Remember working the Bad Trip Room as a volunteer for a Jefferson Airplane concert there; someone came up behind me (Red Cross volunteer 1964-2002 or so; hotline volunteer late 60's through 80's, volunteer EMT 80's) when I was bending over a distressed patient and kissed me on the back of the neck. I was outraged, and sharply backhanded him. Later someone told me the guy I had backhanded was Jorma (of JA).

The Johnny Winter concert I very much enjoyed. Peace demonstrations, draft counseling, concerts, classes, locking the president of the college (Roman J Zorn!) in his office and refusing to let him out until he talked with us. We were actually very polite-- we packed lunches, offered him one, and called his wife to tell her he wouldn't be home for lunch. He was not polite back; apparently he had anticipated a nice hot lunch cooked by his wife, and instead got a cold sandwich, choice of tuna or ham, and potato chips with a choice of sodas, and was not expecting to deal with students (many of them returned veterans) who had issues to discuss.

Domi, remembering

   Thank you, Domi! You've led an exciting and eventful life, I must say!

   From My Cousin, Jean Atkinson Mallory (Warsaw HS / Rappahannock HS / John Marshall HS - '65) of VA - 09/17/16:

  Thanks, Jean!

 From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 09/18/17:

      Thanks again, Domi! This is one of my personal pet peeves!  

“You can always trust the untrustworthy because you can always trust that they will be untrustworthy. It's the trustworthy you can't trust.

The Pirate Song

- Lesley Nelson-Burns

My boat's by the tower, and my bark's on the bay,
and both must be gone at the dawn of the day.
The moon's in her shroud, and to light thee afar
On the deck of the daring's a lovelighted star.
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,

So forgive me my rough mood unaccustomed to sue;
I woo not, perhaps, as your landlubbers do.
My voice is attuned to the sound of the gun
That startles the deep when the combat's begun.
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,

The Frenchman and Don will flee from our path,
and the Englishmen cower below at our wrath,
And our sails shall be gilt in the gold of the day,
And the sea robins sing as we roll on our way.
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,

A hundred shall serve - the best of the brave,
And the chief of a thousand shall kneel as thy slave,
And thou shalt reign queen, and thy empire shall last
Till the black flag by inches, is torn from the mast.
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,
So wake, lady wake, I am waiting for thee,
Oh, this night or never my bride thou shalt be,
