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 was named the September 2010 People's Choice! This is the last month we can vote for Grace - the last 31 days we have to make a difference.
It only takes about two seconds to cast your allotted daily vote)!!!< 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?!?

Christmas CanCan (your first card of the season?)
http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid1909243034?bctid=53156488001 - Christmas CanCan - Straight No Chaser - Lyrics and arrangement by Walter Chase
HOW DELIGHTFUL! Thanks, Judy - Merry Christmas! (I saved this for our second Hanukkah issue of the season for reasons which become obvious towards the end of the video.)
From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 12/02/10 - "1950-1960 PHOTOS.... A better Time":
Carol......Something we all can remember..............
Subject: 1950-1960 PHOTOS....
A better time..........................
WOWZERS! How cool is this?!? Thanks, Wayne!
From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 12/03/10 - "Baby Elephant rescue":
The wonders of
nature..............and a mother's love.
AWWW! Even knowing the outcome ahead of time, this made me nervous and antsy to watch. Poor little fella! I especially appreciated the way the rest of the herd helped the mama with the rescue. There are times we all need a little help!
From Wayne Stokes ('65) of VA - 12/03/10, 9:38 AM - "Must see this beware" AND From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of Northern VA - 12/03/10, 10:47 AM - "BE CAREFUL":
FYI! If the crooks didn't know about this, after this report they will--and it will spread across the country. The symbol is on the back of the card.
We just checked our cards and one of them has this technology so I'm going to wrap in Reynolds Wrap®.
Another way to rip us off through the miracle of technology
A MUST SEE VIDEO
YOWZERONI! Thanks, Sweeties! We saw this on TV the other night. Think of the plus side, though. Now you get to spend more time socializing in line while waiting for everyone to extricate their cards from the layers of aluminum foil. No, wait, that's not usually really a plus factor, is it?!?
