1.       From My Niece Shari of VA - 06/19/08, 6:14 AM - "Much More Pain":

I thought I was getting better and now I have to find an oral surgeon, today. I am in as much pain, as before. More prayers are needed and greatly appreciated. I'm really scared, now.  I can't go back in town, as they are barbaric. My insurance was transferring to a single holders policy and if it is more infection or cancer I need it gone prior to it spreading more. The pain was subsiding on Keflex, and came back, with a vengeance! I have been on 2 antibiotics and my stomach is all messed up. I discovered the area way too late on the 26th of May and my tooth should have been removed that day. This is again serious agonizing pain.
                                   Thank you.,

 YOWZERONI-RINI-ROONI - it just doesn't stop, does it, Shari?!? We're so sorry!


          From My #6 Son, Dale Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - '02) of MA -  06/18/08 - "  Buckley Daniel Harty": :

Some more of the little guy we love so much

June 18, 2008 by Dale Harty

These were taken on Fatherís Day 6/15/08. What a Fatherís Day Gift!

  They say that babies canít smile on purpose at this young age, but instead are just figuring out how to use their facial muscles along with the rest. While that may be so, it makes you wonder when he puts on a serene, beaming smile just after being told how adorable he is and kissed on his beautiful cheeks. If the doctors are wrong (donít tell anyone I even brought up that possibility) just on the off-chance that they change their minds a few years from now, it might be said that he smiled for the first time on Fatherís Day.
Father's Day, Sunday, June 15, 2008
This picture was taken on Tuesday 6/17/08. Heís such an adorable little character. He really likes cuddling with his mother after eating. Itís so cute when heís done. He lets go, pulls himself away, presses his lips together so thereís no mistake that heís done, then lays his head on her chest and is fast asleep within minutes.

  And finally this picture was taken this morning 6/18/08, while he was still asleep. Last night, he would wake up whenever we tried putting him in the bassinet, so we just laid him between us in bed and both snuggled him. Except for waking a few times for quick feedings, he slept through the night!

  Thank you so much, Dale! Somehow I don't seem to tire of seeing new pictures of that little baby boy! And he opened his EYES! Except for rare moments, my seven babies all kept their eyes tightly clamped shut for three weeks or so, much like newborn kittens.....

  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 06/18/08 - "When You Thought I Wasn't Looking":



A message every adult should read because children are watching what you are doing as you do, not as you say.


When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you hang my first painting on the refrigerator,
and I immediately
wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you feed a
stray cat,
and I learned that it was good to be kind
to animals.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make my
favorite cake for me,
and I learned that the little
things can be the special things in life.


When you thought I wasn't looking I heard you say a
and I knew that there is a God I could always
talk to, and I learned to trust in Him.


When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you make a meal and take it to a friend who was sick,
and I
learned that we all have to help take care of each other.
When you thought I wasn't looking, I saw you give of
your time and money to help people who had nothing,
and I learned that those who have something should
give to those who don't.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw you take care
of our house and everyone in it,
and I learned we have
to take care of what we are given.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw how you
handled your responsibilities, even when you didn't feel good,
and I learned that I would have to be
responsible when I grow up. 

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw tears come from your eyes,
and I learned that sometimes things
hurt, but it's all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn't looking I saw that you
and I wanted to be everything that I could be.


When you thought I wasn't looking I learned most of life's lessons that I need to know to be a good and
productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn't looking I looked at you and
wanted to say, 'Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn't looking.'




Each of us (parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher, friend) influences the life of a child. 

How will you touch the life of someone today?
Just by
sending this to someone else, you will probably make
them at least think about their influence on others.

  Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Joyce!

   From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66 / '67) of VA - 06/18/08 - "RE":

I must tell the truth Carol...Alas,     John (Howard - '66 - of VA) and I never dated in High School. I dated Ferguson guys...oops! I only barely knew who he was and vice versa. My friend had a crush on him, thus I knew his name! ha

We met at Ft. Monroe when someone wanted to find him due to his returning from Viet Nam...I went along for the ride...ha
Ended up being a ride for the rest of my life! Amazing how God works things out!

Peace & Blessing,

   Yes, indeedy! When you missed your first chance, He allowed you a second! What a lovely story of hope!! Thanks, Cheryl!

How to Tell the Sex of a Fly


This is the cleanest E-mail joke I've come across in a long while!

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter.

'What are you doing?' she asked.

'Hunting flies' he responded.

'Oh! Killing any?' she asked.

'Yep, 3 males, 2 females,' he replied.

Intrigued, she asked, 'How can you tell them apart?'

He responded, '3 were on a beer can, 2 were on the phone.'

 Joyce Cahoon

     Thanks again, Joyce!
