“Absence of gratitude is the mark of the narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in wanton mischief... Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and property of others.
Without it there is arrogance and evil."

Gordon B. Hinckley, October, 1964

“Living in thanksgiving daily is a habit that will enrich our lives and the lives of those we love...Those who live in thanksgiving daily have a way of opening their eyes and seeing the wonders and beauties of this world as though seeing them for the first time."

From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 11/27/18:

   Thank you, Joan!

   From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 11/26/19, 10:30 AM:

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Typhoon Regards,
Joe Madagan

   Thank you, Adonis! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, too!

  From the Boy Most Likely to Succeed in the Class of 1961, Buddy David of VA - 11/26/19, 11:01 AM:

I missed you. What you do is so special.

   OH, WOW! Thanks so much, Buddy! You made my day!

 From Jim Dossett ('66) of SC (I think...) - 11/26/19, 11:11 AM:

Photo after photo of my heroes and heroine from NNHS. Wonderful, friends, athletes, musicians ... people. Seeing Jimmy De's photo,   David F's and several other photos was just flooring. Typhoon I didn't know but remember my late brother, Ray Dossett - NNHS '55, speaking of them. Coaches, principals, Chief Peach's family members .... how sad. Carol, I don't see how you find the heart to put this all together for us; but thank you for doing so.

Jim Dossett, '66

   Thank you so much, Jimmy! I will have to say that these last four months or so have taken as deep and emotional toll on me as at any period since I first began keeping track of them 19 years ago. They've all affected me just by their sheer numbers, but some of those passings were almost unbearable for me personally.

From Rochelle Spooner ('63) of NY - 11/26/19, 10:55 PM:

Glad to see you again
Happy gobble gobble day

My love, Rochelle

   Thank you, Rochelle! It's good to be getting back on track at last. Happy Thanksgiving to you, too!

    From Jimmy Hines ('64) of VA - 11/26/19, 11:32 PM:

You've been missed!
I hope all are well!


   Thank you, Santa Jim! But "well"?? I'm afraid that would be quite a stretch.

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 11/27/19:

  Good morning on Hump Day although I don't call it Hump Day this week since there is no need for the Hump on Wednesday because, with the holiday beckoning, we should be already approaching the finish line. I guess we could call it Margaritaville Wednesday, but that would be confusing, or even by its real name, just plain old Wednesday, except that doesn't really describe this day of the year. I've got it: Anticipatory Wednesday. Why? Because I can't think of anything more anticipatory than the cravings I had for turkey and all the trimmings, plus pumpkin and pecan pies, that I will always associate with this day. So, wherever you are, be it finishing up work, on the final lap of your travel to Grandma's or even helping in the kitchen, enjoy Thanksgiving Eve and get ready for the most All American Day of the year tomorrow. It comes quickly and departs just as fast, so savor and enjoy. And don't forget it's real purpose, that being to thank Almighty Providence for all of the blessings that He has bestowed upon all of us in America and they are indeed plentiful. Have a wonderful day.

   Thank you, Jimmy! Happy Thanksgiving!


 From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 11/26/18:

   GREAT PLAN! Thanks, Jean!

From Karen Brown Sale ('68) of VA - 11/24/18:
  SO CUTE! Thank you, Karen!

Lyrics by Henry Alford (07 Oct 1810 - 12 Jan 1871);

Music by Sir George Job Elvey (29 Mar 1816 - 1893), organist at St. George's Chapel,
Windsor Castle for nearly fifty years, about 1844
Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin.
God our Maker doth provide
For our wants to be supplied;
Come to God's own temple, come,
Raise the song of harvest home.

All the world is God's own field,
Fruit as praise to God we yield;
Wheat and tares together sown
Unto joy or sorrow grown;
First the blade and then the ear,
Then the full corn shall appear;
Lord of harvest, grant that we
Wholesome grain and pure may be.

For the Lord our God shall come,
And shall take the harvest home;
From the field shall in that day
All offenses purge away,
Giving angels charge at last
In the fire the tares to cast,
But the fruitful ears to store
In the garner evermore.

Even so, Lord, quickly come,
Bring thy final harvest home;
Gather thou thy people in,
Free from sorrow, free from sin,
There, forever purified,
In thy presence to abide;
Come, with all thine angels, come,
Raise the glorious harvest home.
