UPDATE

On Denny Randall - 6-20-21

I'm hanging in there, although the ablation was successful,
it did not help, so now I'm scheduled the 1st of July
to have a DC conversion (again) to try to establish normal sinus beat.
On top of everything else I'm dizzy quite often and lose my balance---
long story short, the day after I had the ablation
I took a fall in the garage, barked up one leg badly
and ended up back in the hospital with cellulitis,
which required an iv drip of antibiotics.
That now seems to be clearing up, but this is hard work!
For the 1st time in 20 years I missed my newspaper deadline.
Thanks to everyone for their thoughts, prayers, cards and visits.

 

Denny, I know we all send you our best wishes,

thoughts and prayers, for you to get well soon.

Denny Randall - 6-19-21

I haven't heard any more from him so far,
since his last note to us,
which was a few days after his operation:

"Hi---The operation went well
and I should know in a few days
whether it produces the desired results.

By the way---
when did they start calling  "operations"  procedures? 

Thanx  for your well wishes.  Best always to you!!!!

UPDATE

On Dave and Marge ----

Dave and Marge
really appreciate your thoughts,
prayers and cards very much,
and do thank you for them.

As we know, Dave had Covid 19,
and has lost 60 pounds.

The Doctors now feel
that the cause of his passing out
has been a combination of several medical issues,
including Parkinson's Disease, and kidney disease.

Marge, too, has trouble with her back and knees.

They are enjoying being in their apartment,
and often go to the prepared meals together, when possible.

Please keep your thoughts, prayers and cards coming:

I, Joan,

have had cataract surgery on one eye,
and am having a hard time

I will also be having the other eye done soon -

Marge called earlier this evening.
Dave was admitted to the hospital this afternoon.
Diagnosis is unknown at this time.
He has been weak for 3 days without improvement,
so they had him admitted for an MRI and other testing,
and requesting a neurologist to examine him to determine a diagnosis.
He is at:

St Joseph's Hospital

Note to me, from Pete-

Joan -

Let everyone know that I loved the cards and Emails!

I am doing well, and feel much better. Life is getting back to normal (or close) but it will take a lot more time.

The big thing is to take it easy, and let things come slowly.

Thank you and everyone else.

Peter

 

(I am behind on my BB notes -)

Since the above note, the class sent a gift to him:

Pete acknowledged that he received it,
and appreciates it.

Keep getting better, Pete!
We all are thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery.

************

This morning, I received a phone call
from Darlene and Bill Babcock -

They arrived back home safely, to Gaffney, South Carolina.
We were so happy that they were able to join us,

I am still working on our class page,
to get the photos up from our class get-together, on the 23rd.

He had been fighting many medical issues,

Our heartfelt sadness and prayers,

I remember Dick made us some GREAT yearbooks,
for our class of '57 - many years after we graduated.

They show the updated information,
of what many of us had been doing
since we graduated, along with our up-dated pictures.

He did it out of the goodness of his heart,
and never charged us a penny.

He did a great job on them.

I believe most of us kept them.

Pete says he is doing well,
and that he has a great family,
which he sees all the time.

Sounds to me, that he must have a huge pill box -
he is now taking 10 pills a day.

Keep up the good work, Pete -

We ALL wish you well - a speedy recovery back to good health.

We all know what THAT is like!

 

But they are really enjoying their new apartment,
as well as their little puppy Coco.

Sue sent in some photos, from long, long ago.

You may click on the thumbnails below, to view larger photos:

 

1. Lorna, Diane and Connie at one of our reunions, at Sue's house.

2. Sue as a little girl, in a school photo taken in Kindergarden on her first day of school. My aunt bought the pale pink dress from Macy's in new york city
Amazingly, Lorna's aunt bought Lorna's 1st day of scl dress in Rochester -
Same exact dress.
The aunts thought they were getting a special one-of-a-kind dress,
and we ended with the same dress.
(Except Lorna's dress was powder blue instead of pink, like mine )
Lorna and I had already become fast friends at 3 years of age,
and lived right next door to each other on Jackson street.
My family lived in (Hutton house then).
Lorna was sad when I would introduce her as my OLDEST friend.
Don't call me your oldest friend. Call me your LONGEST friend.
When my grandma died, my family moved next to my granddad's house,
where I lived until I left for college.

3. School stage set 1991 by Sue.

Below are some songs, which Sue remembers our singing,
on the school bus, adding to the songs
which we have already collected, previously:

1. On Top of Old Smokey

2. Sixteen Tons

3. Sweet Violets

4. Down in the Valley

5. John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt

But, particularly since Dave recently had Covid-19,
he still has a tough row to hoe.

They have a nurse come in daily for assistance.
They both request and appreciate, your continued prayers,
for which they do thank you very much.

We ALL have you in our thoughts and prayers, Dave.

We hope you feel better very soon.

This is an assisted living home -

Marge says it is very nice.

It is a Lutheran Home,
and used to be, John Knox Village

For now, Marge is in the apartment,
and Dave is in the rehab. building,
which is right next to their apartment.

Dave is still having a hard time - falling a lot.
This started back in October.
So far, the doctors have not been able to come up with a diagnosis.

Unfortunately, Marge is unable to visit Dave at this time,
since Dave has contracted Covid-19.

We ALL hope and pray that Dave will get healthier very soon -
And in the meantime - they sure could stand some
thoughts, prayers and cards.

Phyllis Abrams brought up the idea,
that she was recalling a few songs,
which our class used to sing on the bus rides,
which were often sung, while going to a game.

She was wondering if any of you remember any of them also?

Below, is one she remembers only partially,
and here are the words which are to her memory so far:

********

 

 

Let me call you sweet-heart,
I'm in love with your auto-mo-bile.
Let me hear you whis-per,
That, you'll buy the gas-o-line.
Keep those head-lights burning,
And your hands upon the wheel.
Let me call you sweet-heart,
I'm in love, with your auto-mo-bile
.

Thanks for your contribution, Phyl!

 

Here is one song I remember:

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,
Merry merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra,
Gay your life must be!
One, Two, Three!

 

Can anybody think of other songs we used to sing?
If so - we would love to hear from you -

Barb. Welch added the names of a few tunes she remembers:

"You Are My Sunshine",

And

"99 Bottles of beer on the wall" -

Oh, yes - Bet most of us remember those, too, Barb. - Thanks!

Lorna and Carl Sande

(12-05-2020)

***************

Lorna Jones Sande and Carl (her husband) were very much surprised when they received a gift certificate to a local restaurant from the Sunshine Committee.  Lorna has undergone some surgery and physical therapy and is having a problem with her memory.  She and Carl moved to Syracuse about a year and a half ago.  They live in the mother-in-law apartment that is attached to her brother and sister-in-law, Dan and Pat's house. It works out really well for them as Carl, Dan and Pat keep a pretty good eye on Lorna.  She is strong and maintains her great sense of humor.  Lorna and Carl are both looking forward to using the gift certificate and they thank the class for their thoughtfulness.

 

We send our best wishes to Lorna and Carl,
and we wish Lorna a speedy recovery from her surgery.

Also our thank you to our great "Sunshine Committee"

Carol Rhoades

(10-26-2020)

Judy Lofft chatted with her on the phone,
the other day, and Carol said she would
love to hear from our class.

Her phone # is 913-961-7715.

She also uses "Messenger" on Facebook.

She is doing quite well,
and is happy living with her kitty-cat.

*************************

BE ON ALERT!!

You could possibly receive a scam e-mail
which would look like a note from a classmate,
or even some other person.

The wording would look something like this:

 

Don't respond to it. This is a scam.

to see ANY house become so deteriorated.

NOTE FROM DICK BROWN:

(JULY 28, 2020)

********************

 

 I am doing well - feel good, but they will not let me lift any more then the weight of a gallon of milk. My oncologist and my surgeon decided that I need to have chemo therapy.  I started last week and will have 4 cycles. I will also get neulasta starting Thursday. I am also going on a drug to help my bone marrow produce more platelets. So far I have had only one bad day (knock on wood). When you have both cancer and anemia it sucks. If my platelets get too low they will stop the chemo. I want to get this over with and get on with life. I am sure every cancer patient feels the same way. We have a couple of people in this park that are a heck of a lot worse shape then I am.

We are so glad the operation is over with,
and you are feeling well.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you
for you to have good results, and success
with the treatments you are receiving.

Hang in there, - we are pulling for you!

Joan

With the COVID19 -

Here are some words, that may help us to understand
the terminology they use, when explaining it:


Use VENTILATOR for machines that help patients breathe.

Use RESPIRATOR for the Protective masks health Professionals wear.

EPIDEMIC" vs. “PANDEMIC": What Do These Terms Mean?

An EPIDEMIC disease is one “affecting many persons at the same time,
and spreading from person to person in a locality where the disease is not permanently prevalent.”
The World Health Organization (WHO) further specifies epidemic
as occurring at the level of a region or community.

Compared to an epidemic disease,
a PANDEMICdisease is an epidemic that has spread over a large area,
that is, it’s “prevalent throughout an entire country, continent, or the whole world.”

What Is The Difference Between “QUARANTINE” and “ISOLATION"?

In general, a "QUARANTINE" is “a strict isolation imposed to prevent the spread of disease.”
We know what you might be thinking: so, a quarantine is … just an isolation?
Not exactly.

The takeaway:
People are put in "QUARANTINE" when they are NOT currently sick,
but have been or may have been exposed to a communicable disease.
This can help stop the spread of the disease.

In general, "ISOLATION"is when someone or something is set apart
or separated from other persons or things.
In medical contexts, isolation specifically means
“the complete separation from others of a person suffering from contagious or infectious disease.”

The takeaway:
"ISOLATION" happens when a person is infected WITH a communicable disease,
and is separated from people who are healthy. This also helps stop the spread of the disease.

She is now living in an assisted living facility

She had heart problems a few months ago & now has a pacemaker. 
She is feeling much better than she was. 

I know she would love to hear from classmates.  

I don't think she has e-mail but does have F.B.Messenger.

Newspapers, in today's world:

Printed newspapers are all on hard times, and just yesterday, (4-5-19),
the Citizen announced that it will no longer be printing their own paper daily.

They are going to have it printed in Canandaigua and truck it to Auburn, daily. 

There is no longer a Pennysaver, or Inport type paper locally.

Note from Sue:

(Nov. 16, 2018)

I am sharing a harvest of iPad art that I was able to publish into cards.  

( I'm gathering up stones), and I am still trying to fulfill my yearbook of '57 dream,
of becoming a grandma Moses... (at least the age is right).

I am so excited to be selling my art as stationery cards
in gift shops in Skaneatles and other locations,
and also selling them privately to friends and others,
after iPad presentations to different groups.  

Art does not exist until it is shared with others to be enjoyed.  

Art is that kind of gift that I treasure in my life.

Class 57 45th reunion

These are some of the classmates standing in front of Sue's house,
where Sue, Connie, Lorna & Marcella hosted a most superb party !
( This great photo was submitted by Denny Salisbury - THANKS, DENNY ! )
Wish he could have been in the picture, though.

That sure was a wonderful (reunion) party!!

Thanks to Sue, Connie, Lorna and Marcie!

Finally!

And at long last -

I am starting a NEW "Directory3" page for us -

The old one still has the links on it,
which DO work, and are up to date, (the links),
however, I have not been able to change a thing
on the old actual Directory page for several years now.

I don't know why the new information will not upload to the net.

So I finally had to give up trying to do that,
and just start from scratch with a brand new "Directory3" Page.

It will take me a long time to complete it.
But I do think it will be worth while.

Our class of '57 "Brick" -

(Aug. 6th, 2015)

A note from Cheryl Austin, who is the "Director" of the Weedsport Library:

 

"Hi Joan and Denny,

I'm pleased to tell you our landscape architect came last week,
and installed the brick order. 

The area is still a little sandy from the installation,
we will get all of the sand cleared off if rain doesn't take care of it.

I'm attaching a photo of the brick and a photo of the area as a whole.

Thanks again for participating in the brick garden project. 

What a lovely and lasting tribute to your class of a lifetime!

Regards,
Cheryl Austin"

The Welches -

Bob 'n Barb's son, Craig Welch,
has written a very interesting article,

"Seachange",

SeaChange

In the Seattle Times, which is on-line, at the link below:

http://apps.seattletimes.com/reports/sea-change/2013/sep/11/pacific-ocean-perilous-turn-overview/

The link above, contains MANY beautiful photos.

Pacific Ocean takes perilous turn --

Ocean acidification threatens to scramble marine life on a scale almost too big to fathom.

***********************************************

Many of you will remember one of Craig's previous books:

"Shell Games"

http://www.craig-welch.com/Craig_Welch.html

Shell Games Hard Cover  Book Shell Games Soft Cover

 

Craig is a very talented and informative writer, indeed!

Bob Leonardi

SUE'S BOOK

http://www.lilliandwilly.com/

This is a book created completely by Sue -
All of the poetry, and artwork were composed and originated by Sue.

I feel this book is particularly interesting to folks to have lived, (or do live),
in the town of Weedsport, since so many of the artworks portray Weedsport,
as do the little poems accompanying each painting.

This is a clean-cut book, you can read to your grandchildren;
Or if they are old enough to read, they will enjoy reading it themselves.

A great gift idea for many occasions:

Children in a hospital, Sunday School, Weedsport elementary School,
dog lovers, (particularly Min-Pins), - since the book is based around
a dog named "Lilli", and her best friend "Willy" who is a clown.
They share many happy experiences together, through the different seasons, and holidays.

Each page you turn, will have a poem on the left side, and the corresponding artwork on the right side.

Easy reading - I would say quite large print.

You can read more about the book at the link above -

Great job, Sue!! thumbs up

Scholarship Fund --

$4057.57

Note from the Prez.:
(Nov. 29, 2007)

I am pleased to report that today
I have turned over to the WCS Alumni Association
the sum of $4057.57 in the name of the class of  ' 57.  

Whadda Class!!  

Thanks to all who participated in the project
and especially to Alicia
who handled the fund raising 
in the face of some very trying personal times. 

The Alumni Association typically gives
5 scholarships yearly totaling $2500.00 ,
so you can easily see how big an impact
a donation of this size helps the program.  

By the way, this is the second largest donation
ever received by the association
and by far the largest ever given by a class. 

Thanks again to all.

These four web pages above, are very helpful -- I particularly like the second one,
which "de-bunks" the pesky and untrue "E-Mail warnings", alphabetically.

Thankfully, this web site is simple and fast to use, -- I hope you will try it.

The site contains interesting information, in simple terminology.
