09/05/13 - NNHS Newsletter - Five Minutes More

“If we discovered that we only had five minutes left to say all that we wanted to say,
every telephone booth would be occupied by people calling other people
to stammer that they loved them.”

Christopher Morley
(05 May 1890 - 28 Mar 1957)

    From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 09/04/13 - "      Jamey (Douglas Bacon - '66 - of VA)":

So proud of the work you did for Jamie!
You are an artist of the word.

I love you,
Linda May '66

    That's very nice of you to say so, Linda May, but "I didn't do nuffin'!" I wish I had been in a position to have helped, but the timing was certainly off for me. The real heroes of this venture are     Malcolm Davis and  Polly Norris Davis ( both '65 of VA) - as well as all those who were willing and able to contribute financially and physically to help Jamey! Our Typhoon Family is the best!

   I love you, too, Linda May!

    From Susie Overton Jones ('63) of VA - 09/04/13 - "Death update":

Please change the birth date of 
  Livvie Benton to Nov 30, 1944.

Thank you,

   Well, that was easy! Thank you for your attention to detail, Susie! You're a woman after my own heart!

    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 09/04/13 - "MOVING PUZZLE":


If you can put this puzzle together. You can pretty much say goodbye to Alzheimer's!

This is really clever and a bit challenging. As we older people are concerned with Alzheimer's disease, this puzzle may help dispel some fear. It's easy to put together if you are not affected by Alzheimer's disease, but impossible to do for someone with the disease. Give it a try. If this puzzle is particularly difficult for you, then your physician can offer you additional testing to check you for Alzheimer's.

Just remember, if you can put this puzzle together (regardless of how much time it takes), you do not have to fear Alzheimer's!

(NOTE: try placing the puzzle pieces on the outside of the play board first and watch the motion in the puzzle, too.)
A really neat puzzle!!

   Thanks, Jimmy! That's very comforting - I think.....

From My Friend, Angela, of NC - 09/04/13 - "Diet":

  ha, some days!

  Thanks, Angela! I think I'm familiar with this diet plan!


From My Friend, Caroline, of NC - 09/04/13 - "Pretending":

  This fits my week perfectly. And it's only Wednesday! Haha

  Thank you, Caroline! I have this problem myself - frequently!


  From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 08/23/13 - "For the dog lovers" (#12 in a Series of 18):


     AWW!  Thanks, Joyce!

From - 09/04/13:

One afternoon a man came home from work to find total mayhem in his house. His three children were outside, still in their P.J.'s, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers thrown all about the front yard. The door to his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess.

A lamp had been knocked over, and a throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, Breakfast food was spilled on the counter, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand lay piled up by the back door.

He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and other piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried that she might be ill, or worse!!

He found her lounging into the bedroom, still in her pajamas, reading a novel.

She smiled, looked up at him and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, "What happened here today?"

She again smiled and answered, "You know everyday when you come home from work and ask me what in the world did I do today?"

"Yes", he replied reluctantly.

She answered, "Well, today I didn't do it!!"

All week long I dreamed about our Saturday date
Don't you know that Sunday morning you can sleep late

Give me five minutes more, only five minutes more
Let me stay, let me stay in your arms

Here am I, begging for only five minutes more
Only five minutes more of your charms

All week long I dreamed about our Saturday date
Don't you know that Sunday morning you can sleep late

Give me five minutes more, only five minutes more
Let me stay, let me stay in your arms
