Submitted by Ed Peeples, NNHS Feb, 1947.
Thanks for the heads up, Ed,
but I actually made both of these Memorial Editions early
on Easter Sunday morning:
I really appreciate your looking out for me, as I do not always catch them all. Generally speaking (faulty announcements from me notwithstanding) if you do not spot either a Memorial Newsletter listed here on the main Newsletter link (or at least the promise of one yet to come!) by11:00 AM Eastern time, I have surely missed it for one reason or another:
From the Head Cheerleader of 1958, Evelyn Fryer Fish of TX - 04/12/10 - "How to wash strawberries (bugs in strawberries) GOOD TO KNOW !!":
That's it! No more strawberries for me.
I'm never going to pop one in my mouth without washing.
EWWW!!! The nasty little seeds are gross enough, but this is totally disgusting! BLUCHH!!! Thank you so much, Evelyn!
From Tom Flax ('64) of VA - 04/12/10 - "fond memories":
Ihope this finds your gang doing well.. and enjoying the new spring weather..
Thanks.. Tom Flax '64..
Thanks, Tom! Um, ah, lemme see, Linda's in Florida - somewhere - and Sandy's in Virginia - somewhere - or that was the case back in 2001, anyway..... I really rarely keep track of mailing addresses.
Let's find out, shall we??

From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 04/12/10 - "Map of USA Puzzle":
THIS IS AWESOME
Map of USA Puzzle. THIS IS NEAT. Good learning tool for kids, also for their parents and grandparents.
See how you do
in placing the states of the United States of America.
All you do is look at the top of the page and drag'n'drop the state to where it belongs. [Smart map, varies the order of the states' placement with each new try!]
It ain't easy mostly because placing a state in the precise location when it as yet has no boundaries in place is a bit tricky!
This is so cool, Dools!
I took the test twice just for fun. The first time I only
scored 44 out of 50 (or 88% right) with an average error of 19 miles, so
I tried it again. This time I scored 47 out of 50 (or 94% correct)
with an average error of 9 miles. Curiously, I botched Illinois both
times, though I never had any trouble with Virginia, North Carolina, or

The Orangutan and the Hound
This is just delightful, David! I personally do not really recall having seen it before. Thanks so much, Gorgeous!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/12/10 - "No Carts":
2 less than intelligent criminals of 2009
Optimism vs. Pessimism
A shoe manufacturer sent two salesmen to a remote country. Not long after, he received a telegram from each.
One wrote: "Get me
out of here - no one wears shoes."
"A baby brother," he said.
Later that year, his mother came home from the hospital with a baby boy. Little Johnny was delighted.
"And what would you like this year for your birthday?" his father asked.
He said, "If it
isn't too uncomfortable for mother, I would like a pony."
Thanks so much, Shari!
