From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 10/31/08 - "RE - 10/31/08 - Happy Halloween!":
Darn, I overlooked the fact that you
would issue a Halloween Newsletter. Had I remembered, I would have offered a
link to a nifty game:
CAT BOWLING http://www.infinitecat.com/games/cat-bowling.html
Great Fun!! It's the Cat's Meow!!
What delightful fun! We always have Halloween "leftovers" - just like candy - so this will be just as much fun now as it would have been on Halloween itself!
I bowl no better on line than I do in real life (I scored a 70 and a 55), but I had more fun - and didn't even break a nail! Thanks, Brown Eyes!
From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 10/31/08 - "Thank you for all the wonderful newsletters...":
Just got home from Sunny California where we visited two sets of friends of very long standing (like 40 years) and also had dinner three times with our son Chuck, visited a distant cousin (third cousin once removed) who had a ton of genealogy stuff about my ancestors from Norway...also attended a reunion of the first company my husband worked for. It was fun but the temp. in Orange, CA was 94 so I am glad to be back in New England where we are wearing sweaters and cords! When we landed in Providence I poked my head into the cockpit to thank the pilot for a beautiful flight and smooth landing and he had put on an alien mask...grey with little green eyes! It was hilarious...I did not stick around to watch the passengers when he came out...Chuck will be heading shortly for the USS Theodore Roosevelt (probably in December), so it was a special treat to have another visit with him before he departs. Going to the sacred soil next week to check up on Mamma.
p.s. Happy Halloween. As usual I bought 60 big candy bars and we had about 20 trick or treaters...lets see, that is about 40 candy bars left...20 for me and 20 for my husband! Shame on us!!!!
HA-HA-HA!!! Thanks, Jean!
From Eva Ellis Madagan ('61) of FL - 10/31/08 - "LIFE THOUGHTS BY DUCKY":
LIFE THOUGHTS BY DUCKY
Marriage changes passion.
Suddenly you're in bed with a relative.
I saw a woman wearing a sweat
shirt with 'Guess' on it.
|How come we choose from just two people to run for president and over fifty for Miss America ?||Now that food has replaced sex in my life, I can't even get into my own pants.|
|I signed up for an exercise class and was told to wear loose fitting clothing. If I HAD any loose fitting clothing, I wouldn't have signed up in the first place!||When I was young we used to go 'skinny dipping,' now I just 'chunky dunk.'||Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.||Wouldn't it be nice if whenever we messed up our life we could simply press 'Ctrl Alt Delete' and start all over? AMEN, AMEN !!|
|Why is it that our children can't read a Bible in school, but they can in prison?||
Wouldn't you know it....
Brain cells come and brain cells go, but FAT cells live forever.
|Why do I have to swear on the Bible in court when the Ten Commandments cannot be displayed outside?||
Bumper sticker of the year:
remember: life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end,
the faster it goes.
Ya just might want to pass this along....
MERRY GIGGLES!!! Thanks, Eva!

For All the Saints
- Lyrics by
William Walsham How
(13 Dec 1823 - 10 Aug 1897), 1864
Music (Sine Nomine - literally, "without name") by Ralph Vaughan Williams (12 Oct 1872 - 26 Aug 1958), 1906
For all the saints
who from their labors rest,
Who thee by faith
before the world confessed.
Thy name, O Jesus,
be forever blest.
Thou wast their Rock,
their Fortress and their Might;
Thou, Lord, their captain
in the well-fought fight;
Thou, in the darkness drear,
their one true light.
O may Thy soldiers,
faithful, true, and bold,
Fight as the saints
who nobly fought of old,
And win with them
the victor's crown of gold.
And when the strife is fierce,
the warfare long,
Steals on the ear
the distant triumph song,
And hearts are brave again,
and arms are strong.
From earth's wide bounds,
from ocean's farthest coast,
Thro' gates of pearl
streams in the countless host,
Singing to Father,
Son, and Holy Ghost,
