From Frances Heath Scott ('62) of VA - 10/27/12:
When you do the Oct. 28th edition, please add Mary Blandford McGehee ('62, LA) to the birthday list for the 28th. I just realized she wasn't listed; I should have noticed because we have been such good friends since elementary school, and our birthdays are back to back. I do find it incredible the many NN classmates you have included!
My classmates and I (62) were so pleased that you and your husband were able to return to God's Country to join us as we celebrated our 50th reunion. (Boy that sounds scary and makes me think we are approaching the age of dirt!) We had an awesome time and are really glad that y'all also had a great time. Your husband wrote an awfully nice "review" of the weekend. We had a lot of classmates, led by Brenda Amos Williams, who contributed in many ways....time, talents and financially....to make it such a special weekend.
As everyone says, thanks for all you do to keep us informed.
Frances Heath Scott
Thank you so much, Fran! I've happily added Mary to our Birthday Page as well as today's edition. I think that's one of the most fun sections of the site!
Thanks again to your awesome reunion committee and your generosity in having Paul and me attend as your guests! We had a really fabulous time, and it was great seeing everyone again!

10/22/12, 10:36 AM - "Morning Awwwww (#2 in a Series of 22)":
From www.ajokeaday.com - 10/27/12:
There was a little guy sitting in a bar, drinking his beer, minding his own business when all of a sudden a great big dude came in and -- WHACK!! -- knocked him off the bar stool and onto the floor.
The big dude said, "That was a karate chop from Korea."
The little guy thought, "GEEZ," but he got back up on the stool and started drinking again when all of a sudden -- WHACK!! -- the big dude knocked him down AGAIN and said, "That was a judo chop from Japan."
So the little guy had had enough of this... He got up, brushed himself off and quietly left. The little guy was gone for an hour or so when he returned. Without saying a word, he walked up behind the big dude and -- WHAM!!!" -- knocked the big dude off his stool, knocking him out cold!!!
The little guy looked at the bartender and said, "When he gets up, tell him that's a crowbar from Sears."

We'll Meet Again
Written by Ross Parker and Hughie Charles in 1939
We'll meet again,
Don't know where,
Don't know when,
But I know
We'll meet again
Some sunny day.
Keep smiling through
Just like you
Till the blue skies
Drive the dark clouds
