    Thanks so much, Susan!


  From Lucy Southall Propst ('63) of VA - 11/04/15, 10:44 PM - "NNHS":

I want to see reunion photos from the class reunion last month!

I enjoyed time spent with
Judy McCall Nesbitt ('65) and Alan ('64), as we cruised the Peninsula and talked of the good times of our teen years.

Lucy Southall Propst

   Thanks, Lucy - glad you were able to see old friends and have fun! There is at present no cover page for the reunion pictures. I was able to snag some of the images posted by   Pauline Collins Shofner ('65) of VA and Jeanette McDonald Hornsby ('66) of SC on Facebook and they appear on these Newsletters:

   There are still plenty more remaining for me to capture, and I'll try to do so as my time, health, and mental acuity allow.


  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 11/04/15 - "Spanish computer...male or female?":  

A S[anish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.

'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.'

'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.'

A student asked, "What gender is 'computer'?"

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.


The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because:

1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic;

2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;

3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and

4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.


The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be vasculine ('el computador'), because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;

2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;

3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and

4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

     Thanks, Dearest Judy!


        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 11/04/15 - "ILLEGAL ITALIAN PARKING":

When you're in Italy, watch where you park!!!!

This is what happens in Italy when you illegally park in a Disabled Parking space.

Don't you just love Italians?!?

       From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC - 11/04/15 - "Creepy Knitting Bowl":

   Pretty sure you need this for crocheting...you know, if both nostrils were open. lol

   EWWW! I think I'll pass. But thanks, Adrienne... I think!
