    From the President of the Class of 1965, Joe Wingo of NC - 11/24/14 - "50-Year Reunion":

“Attention NNHS Class of 1965 Graduates”

Your reunion committee is beginning the process of organizing our 50th reunion celebration. While in the very preliminary stages, what is needed to move forward with a more definitive plan is an expression of interest from each and every classmate. H.P. Lucas has graciously offered to be the point person for this effort. You may contact him by e-mail at hpllgl@juno.com to convey your thoughts. As the level of participation becomes more defined, the committee will then be in a position to supply a thorough synopsis of what our reunion festivities will look like.

My sincere hope is that each of you are well. May the upcoming holiday season bring you peace and joy.

I look forward to a tremendous turnout for our 50th and I look forward to seeing you all again. Remember, age is only a state of mind.

Best wishes,

Joe Wingo

   Thanks, Joe Sweetie!

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/27/14:

A guy walked into a little corner store with a shotgun and demanded all of the cash from the cash drawer.

After the cashier put the cash in a bag, the robber saw a bottle of Scotch that he wanted, behind the counter on the shelf. He told the cashier to put it in the bag as well, but the cashier refused and said, "Because I don't believe you are over 21."

The robber said he was, but the clerk still refused to give it to him because he didn't believe him.

At this point, the robber took his driver's license out of his wallet and gave it to the clerk. The clerk looked it over and agreed that the man was in fact over 21 and he put the Scotch in the bag.

The robber then ran from the store with his loot. The cashier promptly called the police and gave the name and address of the robber that he got off the license. They arrested the robber two hours later.

Count Your Blessings

Words by Johnson Oatman, Jr., 1897
Music by Edwin O. Excell


When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed,
When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Refrain:
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will keep singing as the days go by.

When you look at others with their lands and gold,
Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
Count your many blessings—wealth can never buy
Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.

So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
Do not be disheartened, God is over all;
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
