From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 08/05/10 - "Vote for Grace (REPEATED)":
This is my daughter Laura's dog in a contest to be on the cover of a bag
of dog food.
Vote every day for Grace. Thanks.
Oh, Laura is your daughter, Norris! Well, that makes it all the more important!
Grace has been named the September 2010 People's Choice!
BUT - She's falling considerably behind a dog in California named Dollar!
The last time I checked Dollar was WAAAY ahead of Grace.. We cannot allow this to happen! Doncha wanna go shopping and spot Grace's image on a bag of dog food and know that YOU played a large part in placing her there?!?It only takes about two seconds to cast your allotted daily vote)!!!
From My Friend, Judy Bundy Bowermaster (Litchfield HS, IL - '59) of IL - 11/21/10 - "RE: Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of IL)":
|I think I'm more SHOCKED
to hear that Paul willingly went to the hospital than I am to hear his
Tell him he is loved, wished a speedy recovery and Prayed for as are all of MY adopted family.
Updates are always good things to see. Thanks for thinking of me.
Yes, that's what scared us all! In fact, going to the hospital was HIS idea! That's when we realized that he was seriously near death. Moreover (and mind-bogglingly), he was a model patient! Blessedly, he is improving now.
Thanks so much, Judy-Judy!
From Frances Goodson Wang ('65) of MD - 11/21/10 - "Britain HAS talent!":

Smilin', aren't ya?!?

From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 11/22/10 - "Awesome! Pop-Up Hallelujah Chorus at Macys in Philly":
|There is a link below; enjoy a
"spontaneous uprising" --
Sarah Sugah (Puckett Kressaty -
'65 - of VA), this is right up your alley :-)
This is awesome; you may have seen this, but if you haven’t it’s really worth watching. Macy’s department store in Philly is the scene and 600 singers from various groups were “ planted” in the store, but many were also shopping with the other customers. At a given signal, the “plants” started singing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s “Messiah”. See what happens!
Awesome! Pop-Up Hallelujah Chorus at Macy's
The old John Wanamaker store in Philadelphia has a world renown organ - it is now a Macy's. See what happens to the crowd when the organ starts playing this beautiful tribute to God.
|OOOH! I love these - I've always wanted this to happen while I was there to see it! Thanks so much, Wayne Honey!|
From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of Northern VA - 11/22/10 - "The Final Exam":
|The Final Exam
At Penn State University, there were four sophomores taking chemistry and all of them had an 'A' so far. These four friends were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to visit some friends and have a big party. They had a great time but, after all the hearty partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Penn State until early Monday morning.
Rather than taking the final as scheduled, they decided that after the final they would explain to their professor why they missed it. They said that they visited friends but on the way back they had a flat tire. As a result, they missed the final. The professor agreed they could make up the final the next day. The guys were excited and relieved. They studied that night for the exam.
The next day the Professor placed them in separate rooms and gave them a test booklet. They quickly answered the first problem worth 5 points. Cool, they thought! Each one in separate rooms, thought this was going to be easy...then they turned the page. On the second page was written...
For 95 points: Which tire? _________
WILD GIGGLES! If this isn't true, it should be! Thanks, Janice!
From My Friend, Judy Bundy Bowermaster (Litchfield HS, IL - '59) of IL - 11/22/10 - "Winter is coming, brrrrrrrrrrrrr cold":
Winter is coming, brrrrrrrrrrrrr cold
The Farmer's Almanac is predicting a very cold winter.
It must be true because the squirrels are gathering NUTS.
Three of my neighbors have already disappeared.
Are you O.K.?
Thanks again, Jude!

Now Thank We All Our God Based on Ecclesiasticus 50:22-24 by Martin Rinkart (1586-1649) Translated by Catherine Winkworth (1827-1878) Music: Johann Crüger (1598-1662); Harmony by Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)
Now thank we all our God, With heart and hands and voices, Who wondrous things has done, In whom this world rejoices; Who from our mothers' arms Has blessed us on our way With countless gifts of love, And still is ours today. O may this bounteous God Through all our life be near us, With ever joyful hearts And blessed peace to cheer us; And keep us still in grace, And guide us when perplexed; And free us from all ills, In this world and the next. All praise and thanks to God The Father now be given; The Son, and him who reigns With them in highest heaven; The one eternal God, Whom earth and heaven adore; For thus it was, is now, And shall be evermore.
