      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.

I'm passing on the Wikipedia link in case you are thinking of a vacation spot. The castles are awesome! The people are about the friendliest I've ever met, and it felt safe. That bombing happened 2 months afterwards at the Glasgow airport, so hopefully stronger security is put in place. This has nothing to do with anything.. I wonder why those who commit these acts of horrific violence don't realize it is working against God. One would have to assume they've been brain washed.

   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":

thought you all deserved this and some of you twice
            luv syl

Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, 'I'm tired, and it's getting late. I think I'll go to bed'

She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day's lunches.
Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.
She then put some wet clothe s in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button
She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and put the telephone book into the drawer.
She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry.

She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field trip, and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair.

She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her purse.

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!!!!)

Send this to five phenomenal women today...they'll love you for it! I just did


   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.":

I Made a May Basket

(Original Author Unknown )

A-tisket, A-tasket
I made a may basket
I filled it up with flowers bright
and hung it on the door just right
A-tisket, A-tasket
I made a may basket
Flowers are a sign of spring
And all the joy that it can bring.
