When Autumn Comes
“The foliage has been losing its
freshness through the month
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I'm repeating this Newsletter from four years ago because I really like the graphics.
Since that time I've determined that (just as I feared) the midi file I had attached did not match the beautiful lyrics of Linda Eder's song shown below. I tried to find a Bonus video and was somewhat thwarted in that, just as I was in locating the correct midi file (hence, there is none attached today):
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q896j06cQi4 - When Autumn Comes - Linda Eder - lovely voice, beautiful images - 36 seconds - WHAT? Are you kidding me?!?
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIA2awkArwU - When Autumn Comes - Jenna Davis
From Bill Roady ('60) of VA - 08/25/11 AND 09/19/11 - "BRUNCH INVITATION":
|Thanks so much, Bill - if there's any possible way to manage it, I'll see you there!|

WOWZERS! Thanks so much, Brent - you're "looking good"!
From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 09/22/11 - "Dinner at Quantico: For Former Marines...Semper Fi PLEASE PASS IT ON!":
Dinner at Quantico
WHY IS IT SOME UNDERSTAND WHAT MATTERS ABOUT AMERICA ... AND THEY RESPECT IT SO DEEPLY THAT THEY ARE WILLING TO MAKE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE FOR IT?
AND TOO MANY OTHERS ... HAVE NO CLUE?
This slide show consists of photos taken at a formal dinner at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Quantico, Virginia honoring the families of fallen Marines.
It is a beautiful presentation of the honor, commitment and pride today's heroes share with yesterday's.
If you know a Marine or a soldier of any branch of the Military (of any age) make sure he or she sees this. Wouldn't hurt if all other Americans saw it too!
Thank you so much, Norris Sweetie!

going to get??
Wild shoes!!! By Kobi Levi, Israeli shoe designer
I love these - such fun! Thanks, Joan! This pair is really a hoot! Not the real me, but a hoot nonetheless!
|From www.aJokeADay.com - 09/22/11:|
A guy was walking beside a pond when a frog jumped out and told him that she was really a beautiful princess and if he were to kiss her, she would make him VERY happy! He picked up the frog and put it into his pocket.
A few minutes later, the frog poked her head out and said, "Didn't you hear me?! I'm a beautiful princess and if you kiss me I will stay with you and do ANYTHING you want!"
The guy took the frog out and said, "Look, I understand what you are saying, but I am a computer programmer and right now I don't have time for a girlfriend,........but a talking FROG is REALLY, REALLY COOL!"

When Autumn Comes
When autumn comes and summer
I will remember through November
What September knows
That nothing lasts forever and
Summer love moves on
So when the leaves begin to change
I find it sad but never strange
That you are all I can recall
When autumn comes
