with the motley, the paint and the powder,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
We haven't used this 1969 song recently.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tw7hk_Hd1M - Helplessly Hoping - Crosby Stills and Nash
|"Helplessly Hoping" is a 1969 song by American
Crosby, Stills, and Nash. It was released on their album
Crosby, Stills & Nash and as the
B-side of the "Marrakesh
The song is noted for its use of alliteration in its lyrics. It was written by Stephen Stills as he went through a painful break-up with Judy Collins, herself in therapy at the time. This, "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" and "49 Bye-Byes" were frank dissemination of his longing to help her through her difficulties juxtaposed against her inability, not unwillingness, to accept his aid as she struggled in therapy and eventually allied herself with Stacy Keach.
From Butch Ragland ('63) of CO - 11/03/16:
|Please keep me in your prayers, folks.
I will be having what should be my last eye surgery after lunch today,
so I will probably not be able to see for a good part of the weekend,
until I get my vision back and eye patch off! God Bless each of you!
... Thanks for all the prayers! I am back in the Una boot Cast for a week, but if the healing doesn't turn the corner this time I may have to have a little more of the remaining foot amputated. I have just 3 toes left now, so keep those prayers coming. The worry is over the bone becoming infected! Will find out next Thursday if this is working! Thanks!!!
YOWZERS! We certainly will, Butch!

BONUS NOVEMBER DECORATING IDEA:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/03/16:
|A defendant was on trial for murder. There was
strong evidence indicating guilt, but there was no corpse.
In the defense's closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client would probably be convicted, resorted to a trick. "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all," the lawyer said as he looked at his watch. "Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom."
He looked toward the courtroom door. The jurors, somewhat stunned, all looked on eagerly. A minute passed. Nothing happened.
Finally the lawyer said, "Actually, I made up
the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I
therefore put to you that you have a reasonable doubt in this case as to
whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a verdict of not
"But how?" inquired the lawyer. "You must have
had some doubt, I saw all of you stare at the door."
