Certainly, Carol! (I'm still mortified by having initially omitted it from the first few issues that week!)
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 10/20/12 - " Reunion of NNHS Class of 1957":
After making all the necessary plans to attend the "Big 55" for NNHS Class of 1957 Reunion, a small item required that I not travel to Virginia. Just the day before we were planning to begin the trip, a kidney stone changed our plans. We were sure looking forward to seeing everyone, and I learned that several classmates who have not attended any of the prior reunions came this year, making the disappointment even greater.
Hoping several of your subscribers will furnish photo images taken during the Reunion for your Newsletter!!!
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
"A SMALL ITEM"?!? Joe, you have an amazing gift for understatement! I delivered seven gi-nor-mous babies naturally and without drugs (well, almost drug-free; the first one was born at Portsmouth Naval Hospital, and apparently saddle-blocks were pretty much obligatory back in 1970) - piece of cake:
NOTHING - not even gallstones - came even close to the pain I experienced in April with those nasty horrendous kidney stones! I am so sorry this happened to you! Are you feeling better yet?? I also recall being quite slow to making a full recovery, so I hope you continue to improve daily!
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 10/20/12 - "Help":
|Carol, recently in
the newsletters you have
included a segment I sent you on "rare photos" as did
Stokes ('65 - of VA).
You have my class listed as "55". Not so; it's "66", and every time I
see this I start counting up (on my fingers & toes) to see how old I am.
Something ain't right here. I mean, Wayne even isn't that old, is he???
All my love,
Bill or Billy or Will or William (When my parents called me William I knew they had found out something.)
OH, SHEESH! Billy, this is a classic example of why blind people shouldn't be in this business.....
The mistake apparently extended back to September 22, when I was fighting the html code. I re-entered the date incorrectly (hey - it looked okay to me! ), and then I've just been cutting and re-pasting the same blooper ever since. I've fixed them ALL (I think) now.
Thanks for telling me, Sweetie! I never would have seen it. I had to hold my face five inches from my (rather large) monitor to see it this time - and even then, I caught myself entering '88 once!
From Jay Styles ('68) of VA - 10/20/12 - "Santa Barbara Beach":
The first picture and the last picture are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the Pier. The second photograph shows another temporary memorial located at Santa Monica, California. Both are known as Arlington West.
There is a veterans group
that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and
Afghanistan. The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.
They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in
the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so nobody messes
with it. Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it.
Very moving, very powerful. So many young volunteers. So many 30 to 40
year olds as well.
If I get it a 1000 times, I'll forward it a 1000 times! Prayer for our soldiers... please don't break it! Please send this on after a short prayer. Please, let us pray... Prayer:
Heavenly Father, hold our troops in Your
loving hands. Protect them as they protect us.
GOD BLESS YOU FOR PASSING IT ON!
Thank you so much, Jay Sweetie!

GIGGLES! Thanks so much, Harry!
From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 10/21/12 - "Holy Holy Holy":
A father was approached by his small son who told him proudly, "I know what the Bible means!"
His father smiled and replied, "What do you mean, you 'know' what the Bible means?"
The son replied, "I do know!"
"Okay," said his father. "What does the Bible mean?"
"That's easy, Daddy," the young boy replied excitedly,"It stands for 'Basic Information Before Leaving Earth.."
MORE GIGGLES! That pretty much nails it, Joyce! Thanks!
From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of TX - 10/21/12 - "Warrior Ethos":
I've always been proud (and motivated) by the
This bit on the steps is the Warrior Ethos that is in the Soldiers Creed: http://www.army.mil/values/warrior.html
The only time I didn't enjoy it was during Basic in the CS chamber right after we took our mask off and are feeling the gas burn your eyes and lungs. Most guys were told to say their name and maybe mothers' maiden name, followed by Drill Sergeant. Then they would exit the chamber. Well, one of the other platoon Drills thought it would be a good idea to have me say the Warrior Ethos. I knew I knew it...but it took me what seemed forever to compose myself, start off the Soldier's Creed in my head and then recite the Warrior Ethos part. I said it correctly. Actually I forgot the Drill Sergeant part, and he still let me go. Didn't realize I forgot to render that respect until I thought on the scene later...
Thank you so much, Brent! Hooah!

From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/21/12:
|An old man walks
into a bar, sits down, and starts crying.
The bartender asks, “What’s wrong?” The old man looks at the bartender through
Teary eyes and between sobs says, “I married a beautiful woman two days ago. She’s a natural blonde, twenty-five, intelligent, a marvelous cook, a meticulous housekeeper,
extremely sensitive to my wants and needs, very giving, my best friend, and intensely passionate in bed.”
The bartender stares at the old man for a brief moment and says, “But that sounds great! You have what every man wants in a woman, so why are crying?”
The old man looks at the bartender and says, “I can’t remember where I live!”

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
the dream that you wish will come true
