THE NAYS:

  From Kenny Branch ('62) of AR - 10/06/15, 10:54 PM:

I can’t open any of the letters, haven’t been able to for a while.
Hope to see you at the reunion.

Kenny

   ARGHH! Thanks, Kenny! I'm so sorry to hear this!

  Unfortunately, my health will not permit me from attending the reunion, but y'all have fun!  
 


   From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66 / '67) of VA - 10/07/15, 7:59 AM:

Hi Carol.

FYI, I have a Mac and cannot open your news letters. Not sure why. Thanks for your good work though!

Cheryl Howard

  ARGHH! Thanks, Cheryl! A Mac - that may explain something, but I'm not sure just what...
 


  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 10/06/15, 5:58 PM:

Hi, Carol!

I haven’t been able to access the site from your emails for months.

   ARGHH! Not even NOW? With the new Wonder Plan?!

NOPE!

   ARGHHHHH! I believe the problem for the nine or ten or so of you who are still finding this to be true rests in the controls and setting of your individual equipment. I'll check my sources on this, but I think it's just a minor adjustment. I just don't happen to know what it is....



From Paul's Sister, Paulette, of MO - 10/06/15:

            Thank you so much, Paulette!
 
 


From My Friend, Ed, of NC - 10/08/15:

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")
