From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/30/08 - "Scotland performance":
One of the things I liked about Edinburgh were the street performers. Actually, I liked almost everything, but the wind.
|My sister, Renee Dick Wallace (Booker T. Washington HS - '80) of Northern VA, pointed out somebody I would have surely thought was a statue. We were thinking of the great discipline it must have taken to stand so still. This is definitely Edinburgh and for those of you who don't know it is pronounced like Edinboro. I did not know, until someone told me about a month prior to going there. Would loved to go back, some day, as the 5 days just gave me a taste of the country.|
Thanks, Shari! Scotland has always been very near the top of my Places I'd Like to Visit list!
From Sylvia Midgett ('70) of VA - 04/30/07 - "moms are extra-ordinary":
Mom then washed her face with 3 in
1 cleanser, put on her Night solution & age fighting moisturizer, brushed
and flossed her teeth and filed her nails.
Dad called out, 'I thought you were going to bed.'
'I'm on my way,' she said.
She put some water into the dog's dish and put the cat outside, then made sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on.
She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and TV's, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework.
In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most important things to do list She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishme nt of her goals.
About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular. 'I'm going to bed.'
And he did...without another thought.
Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer...?
CAUSE WE ARE MADE FOR THE LONG HAUL..... (and we can't die sooner, we still have things to do!!!!)
Thanks so much, Sylvia! It does seem to have a ring to it - even for me, and I'm a slacker of the first degree!
From Gloria Woolard Price (Hampton HS - '65) of FL - 04/30/07 - "Dog, Cat, Rat Video":
I don't usually send internet stuff, but you have to see this one. It is absolutely amazing!! He is homeless in Santa Barbara. He works State Street every week for donations. The animals are pretty well fed and mellow. The man who owns them rigged a harness up for his cat so she wouldn't have to walk so much. At some juncture, the rat came along, and no one wanted to eat anyone else, so the rat started riding with the cat and often, on the cat.
WOWZERONI!!! Thanks, Gloria! To quote a dear friend of mine, "That's amazing!"
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 04/30/07 - "Beautiful! I hope you like it as much as I do.":
Carol, this is beautiful! Enjoy!
OHHHH, thank you, Dear Judy! I do try really hard to remember these things - and then to act upon them! What a beautiful reminder for us all!

I hope you get all the pictures!!! Also notice that most all the pictures have men in them!! And they say women are dumb!!! These guys don't even have the "blonde" excuse.
These are very good examples of things that we should NOT do at home, work, or any where else for that matter.
