“As an earring of gold,
and an ornament of fine gold,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This song is the same age as I am. I can scarcely believe we've never used it before. Golden Earrings is one of my all-time favorite films - and why not? It has everything - spies, intrigue, romance, costumes, jewelry, singing, dancing - and gypsies! What's not to love?

Looks like I won, again! Since I am "involuntarily retired", I have more time to check out the Newsletters.
I hope all in your household are feeling better. We depend on you.
Shirley Eanes Matthews _'66
WHOO-HOO! Thanks, Shirley! I've only recently been able to check on the Page Hits again, after that information mysteriously vanished from my screen.
It's just a hunch, but I think we all seem to be feeling "worserer and worserer". Maybe it's just my imagination. Maybe it's all in my head. We'll be going to see the doctor (again!) today. Maybe it's all in HIS head...

I'll be away from my computer for six weeks, starting on 3 Oct - I'm having total knee replacement, going to rehab.
Please hold all email until 15 Nov.

From My #5 Son, Nathaniel Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '97) of IL - 10/01/13 - " Reflex hammer":
|Just scanned through your
recently released newsletters.
Sadly, your father's (the late Robert Buckley - John Marshall HS - '25) (19 Oct 1907 - 25 Apr 1960) reflex hammer's head is cracked from age. The pointed edge has eroded fairly significantly. The handle is indeed not corroded but has some knicks and a slight bend. I did notice the handle on this one is longer than the one pictured, too.
AH, I do have that
tendency to remember things as they once were, don't I?
That IS awesome!
It's been 4-1/2 years since
we've seen them! Now we'll get to see them live and in person (rather
than just over Skype), and finally meet our two youngest granddaughters!
They'll be visiting with us just for a bit until they can find their own
place. Meanwhile, we are frantically child-proofing our home, which has
primarily become a museum to house my seemingly endless collections of
Thank you, Nathaniel! I love you, too - wish you could be here with us all!
