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.
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.
BIRTHDAYS - TODAY AND UPCOMING:
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!

of VA, Woody Hudson ('57),
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
AND David McCoy ('67) of VA !
On the 9th, Hilton Henderson ('57) will be

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!
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.
From Linda Waterfield Kenney ('66) of VA - 10/30/07 and My Friend, Judy, of IL - 11/02/07- "Cookie Recipes":

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.
