The Sweetheart Tree

“I repeat, sir, that in whatever position you place a woman she is an ornament to society and a treasure to the world.
As a sweetheart, she has few equals and no superiors; as a cousin, she is convenient;
as a wealthy grandmother with an incurable distemper, she is precious; as a wet-nurse, she has no equal among men.
What, sir, would the people of the earth be without woman? They would be scarce, sir, almighty scarce.”

- Mark Twain
(30 Nov 1835 - 21 Apr 1910)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    Today's theme song has been running through my mind for a couple of weeks now.  It may strike you more as a spring song than an autumn, but it's really a magic song, as you'll notice in the lyrics below, and any time can be magical. 


    A Very Happy Birthday today to the ever gorgeous    Mike Jeffers ('61) of VA, who (quite incredibly!) is hitting a Major Milestone Birthday!  Tomorrow, our Birthday Two-Fers,   Patsy Blackard Hallett ('65) of VA AND my third grandson,       Tommy Harty of OH both will be hitting milestone birthdays as well. More Birthday Two-Fers follow on the 6th: Marion Timberlake Gitchel ('57) AND        Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA!    Pam Larmer Traugott ('62) of VA will be celebrating on the 7th!

   WOWZERONI-RINI - There's a rare Four-Fer on the 8th: Lawson (Buddy) Sparrow ('53) of VA, Woody Hudson ('57),     Joe Madagan ('57) of FL AND David McCoy ('67) of VA !  On the 9th, Hilton Henderson ('57) will be lighting the candles!
    WOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI - There's an even rarer Five-Fer of sorts on the 10th:
The United States Marine Corps - 1775, Tamsie Warren Ellis ('57),  David Wittan ('57),    Angie Ray Smith ('64) of VA, AND    Steve Pullen ('65) of VA!

   Many Happy Returns to you all!


   I stumbled across the Navy / Notre Dame game yesterday afternoon on NBC - and what an exciting, entertaining game it was!

From - 11/03/07:

Navy Halts a 43-game Losing Streak and Wins a Three-Overtime Thriller Over Notre Dame

It took 44 years and three overtimes for Navy to beat Notre Dame. The Midshipmen snapped an NCAA-record 43-game losing streak to the Fighting Irish on Saturday with a 46-44 victory in triple overtime. Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada threw a 25-yard TD pass to Reggie Campbell on the first play of the third overtime, then found him again in the end zone for the 2-point conversion.

Full Story

   GO NAVY!!!

The Sweetheart Tree

- Music by Henry Mancini, Lyrics by Johnny Mercer

They say there's a tree in the forest,
A tree that will give you a sign;
Come along with me to the Sweetheart Tree,
Come and carve your name next to mine.

They say if you kiss the right sweetheart,
The one you've been waiting for,
Big blossoms of white will burst into sight
And your love will be true evermore.
