      From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 10/08/13 - "TYPHOON in Annapolis":

  Hey Carol:

Alex Haley statute gets a hand shake from 
   Eva Ellis Madagan ('61) of FL during our visit to Annapolis, MD for the sixth Annual Reunion of "Recruit Platoon 276 Parris Island 1957" and one of our Drill Instructors and his wife made it from Maine. The tour of the US Naval Academy was very professional. It was nice to visit Annapolis again.

TYPHOON Regards,

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/08/13:
 
A deer was trying to cross a busy road but the traffic was very heavy.

After waiting unsuccessfully for a few minutes, a bear walked past and said: “Excuse me, there’s a zebra crossing a bit further along the road.”

The deer said, “Well, I hope he’s having better luck than I am!

Drunken Sailor

Chorus
Way, hay up she rises,
Way, hay, up she rises,
Way, hay, up she rises,
Earlye in the morning!

What will we do with the drunken sailor?
What will we do with the drunken sailor?
What will we do with the drunken sailor?
Earlye in the morning?

Put him in the scuppers with the hose pipe on him

Hoist him aboard with a running bowline

Put him in the brig until he's sober.

Make him turn to at shining bright work.

Other verses from
The Book of Navy Songs
(If the verse is the same I did not repeat it)

Put him in a boat and row him over

Hoist him up to the topsail yardarm

Make him clean out all the spit-kids

That's what you do with a drunken sailor
(The last line of this verse is followed
by "Amen")
