“I wonder what fool it was that first invented kissing.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme song just seemed to be a natural.

Recently, I was browsing the web site's teacher information and found Jim Wilson's email address. I emailed a message to him but, it came back as undeliverable. Do you have another email address, telephone number, or home address for Jim Wilson? If so, please let me know. I would like very much to get in touch with him.
Once again, thanks for all your
Thank you, Gentlemen!
Mr. Wilson was fine and dandy when he took a starring role in the 40-Year Reunion for the Class of 1964 in October of 2004, but suffered a heart attack the following January.

At '62's Reunion in 2007, Frances Heath Scott ('62) of VA told me that Mr. Wilson told her himself (on the phone) that he no longer had email. I've never been able to reach him by calling, but his contact information in Emporia, VA (is available at) whitepages.com.

This is so very exciting! I'm so happy for all of y'all who are fortunate enough to attend any of these sessions in Houston!
From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 03/27/10 - "PUB TALK":
"As good as this is," said the Scotsman, "I still prefer the pubs back home. In Glasgow, there's a wee place called McTavish's. The landlord goes out of his way for the locals. When you buy four drinks, he'll buy the fifth drink."
"Well, Angus," said the Englishman, "at my local in London , the Red Lion, the barman will buy you your third drink after you buy the first two."
"Ahhh, dat's nothin'," said the Irishman, "back home in my favorite pub, the moment you set foot in the place, they'll buy you a drink, then another, all the drinks you like, actually. Then, when you've had enough drinks, they'll take you upstairs and see dat you gets laid, all on the house!"
The Englishman and Scotsman were suspicious of the claims. The Irishman swore every word was true.
"Did this actually happen to you?"
"Not meself, personally, no," admitted the Irishman, "but it did happen to me sister quite a few times."

FINALLY:From ArcaMax Jokes - 03/31/10:
A traveling salesman stopped alongside a field on a country road to rest a few minutes. The man had just closed his eyes when a horse came to the fence and began to boast about his past.
"Yes sir, I'm a fine horse. I've run in 25 races and won over $5 million dollars. I keep my trophies in the barn."
The salesman computed the value of having a talking horse, found the horse's owner and offered a handsome sum for the animal.
"Aw, you don't want that horse," said the farmer.
"Yes I do," said the salesman, "and I'll give you $100,000 for the horse."
Recognizing a good deal, the farmer said without hesitation, "He's yours."
While he wrote out his check, the salesman asked, "By the way, why wouldn't I want your horse?"
"Because," said the farmer, "he's a liar - he hasn't won a race in his life."
Most of these are certainly outdated. But it's funny to think they ever were laws.
In Michigan, a woman isn't allowed to cut her own hair without her husband's permission.
In New York, it is against the law to throw a ball at someone's head for fun.
In order for a pickle to officially be considered a pickle in Connecticut, it must bounce.
To keep any of the incarcerated beasts from picking up bad habits, the town of Manville, NJ decreed that it is illegal to feed whiskey or offer cigarettes to animals at the local zoo.
If you sell hollow logs in Tennessee, you are breaking the law.
Compulsive gamblers stay out of Richmond, VA: it is even illegal to flip a coin in a restaurant to see who pays for the coffee.
Don't bother the butterflies in Pacific Grove, CA unless you have an extra $500 for the offense.
The same is true for bullfrogs and cottontails in Hayden, AZ. where disturbing them in the city limits is against the law.
Have it your way, but don't share it in OK. This state forbids a person from taking a bite out of another person's hamburger.
Need a radio on Sunday? In Spokane, WA, you can buy one on the Sabbath, but forget about purchasing a television!
In the state of New York, you need a license to use a clothesline outdoors.
If any retirees from the circus are thinking about settling down and farming in NC, they are forewarned right here and now that it is against the law in this state to use elephants to plow cotton fields!
It is illegal to take more than 2 baths a month within Boston confines.
In Calgary there is a by-law that is still on the books that requires businesses within the city to provide rails for tying up horses.
In the England it is illegal to sell most goods on a Sunday, (this law is mostly ignored), it is however legal to sell a carrot. It is also legal to sell it at any price and to give free gifts with it, such as anything else one might want to buy on a Sunday!
