Dick Brown

(5-27-2020)

I received another update from Bruce:

"Dick came back home from the hospital last Thursday. (May 28th)

  He is doing well considering all he has been though.  

He will need a couple months of rehab to recover fully."  

Again, thank you Bruce for the update.

(5-27-2020)

I received another update from Bruce:

Dick says he hopes to come back home by FRIDAY - (29th)

Bruce thought he sounded quite well on the phone call.

So that is good to know - we wish him a speedy recovery.

And thank you Bruce for the update. :-)

Phyl & Ron snapped the photo below,

Phyl & Ron snapped another photo below -- Phyl says:

We were going to find the pot of GOLD.

Oh well, it was somewhere out in the middle of lake ontario.

Couldn't get to it

We followed that rainbow all the way from Webster,
about 45 minutes.

Thought this was fun.

Dick Brown

(May 12, 2020)

Dick will be having his surgery next week.

No visitors allowed, so Judy will not be there, in person.

Apparently, it was post-poned a week.

We all certainly wish him a successful operation.

 


 

Sister Phyllis Tierney

Thank you note:

(May 9, 2020)

Dear Classmates,

The Sunshine Fund keeps giving! 

Many thanks for the Wegmans Gift Certificate. 

It looks like I can get out of a cook-night
(which is challenging if you are a lefty and the right hand has to do all the work)!

My housemates will appreciate it too!!

Thanks for everything! Prayers for all!

Phyllis

 

You are entirely welcome, Phyl -

Hope your wrist is healing well!

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

Dick Brown -

Dick thanks our class for the gift card for "Wal-Mart",
which he received from our "Sunshine Club".

You are entirely welcome Dick, and we wish you the very best of luck
for your up-coming operation.......

The last I knew,
Dick's surgery was scheduled for Wednesday, the 13th

Our best wishes and prayers are being sent your way, Dick...

Our Class Reunion POSTPONED -

Due to the unpredictability of the COVID19, our WCS Class of '57 Weedsport Summer Reunion, sadly, has been forced to be postponed.

It will NOT be held this June, as we had originally planned.

It has been super-difficult, to put it mildly, to decide when we might be able to have it.

But, if/when a new date has been decided on, we will notify you ASAP.

This is sad to all of us - But we look forward to when we all will be able to be together again - in happier times.

Until then - please stay in touch with each other -
at least we can be grateful to have the phones and internet.

Stay safe and well, everybody.

Photos from Phyllis T.:

(5-1-2020)

(Click on thumbnails below, to see a larger photo)

Some photos from my walk-abouts in the neighborhood:

Home of Frederick Douglass; at Mount Hope Cemetery, one of the many sculptures of him around the city and Susan B. Anthony’ s plot in the cemetery.

I’ve been sending daily earth photos and meditations to people on my mailing lists but I don’t have a group email for the class.

Phyllis

 

 

I went to get back on the sidewalk and tripped at the mouth of the driveway,
which was raised a bit.

I fell fast on my left side on the wrist.

The good part was my glasses did not break!

I didn’t hurt my teeth, and I’m not stiff and bruised except in the hand.

My glasses are old and I could use some new ones but that won’t happen for awhile.

Places here are closed..

Phyllis 

Sure sorry about your accident, Phyl.,
but at least we are glad it wasn't worse than it was.

Hope you heal soon. :-)

Bill & Darlene Babcock -

(5-2-2020)

They have 17 reported cases of Covid19 in their county
and no deaths so far.

They are staying in, and Darlene goes to the grocery store on Wed. mornings, during senior hour.

She says there are usually only 3 or 4 people purchasing groceries, at that time.

She wears a mask and gloves, and then throws them in the trash.

So glad they are doing well. We sure do hope they stay that way.

Take care, Bill & Darlene :-)

Dick Brown -

April 30, 2020

1. His surgery is NOT elective

2. His pre-op procedures are next week
(I don't know which day, but 5-4 thru 5-8)

3. His operation is scheduled for May 19th.

 

Note from Dick:

 

My surgery is not elective.

I was told that if I didn't have it I had maybe two years.

I am scheduled for May 19.

I have my pre-op procedures next week.

I have to be at the hospital at 5:15 AM on the day of.

The time could change, but the date is fixed.

I will be soooooo glad when this is behind me

You certainly have our very best wishes,
as well as many, many prayers, coming your way.

I feel I can speak for myself,

Note from Phyl:

 

Here I am! I’ve been doing lots of Walking!

Monday night (27th),I wanted to get in a few extra steps.

I had just left the house and started down the sidewalk.

Someone was walking toward me so I moved to the street.

They passed; I tripped on the lip of a driveway.

A Good Samaritan helped me up and walked me to the house.

Life happens!

 

Awwww - we are sorry, Phyl, - that's certainly no fun.

I hope it will be on the mend quickly,
and you will be able to use it again, very soon.

The Weedsport BANQUET has been cancelled for this year.

Sad news, particularly for those
who had so many plans to celebrate, their special year.

NOTE FROM Bob/Chink & Judy Morgan

(April 22, 2020)


We are both well!  We went to Denver for our great grandsons birthday March 12-15 and were relieved to get home before things started to be shut down!  Our ride in the tram at Denver airport was a true test of our immune systems- we were packed in like sardines!!! We got past that and have not gone out since. 
I order our groceries online and our kids pick them up and deliver them to us. I’m guessing we will be confined for at least another month. Nevada has done pretty well- about 175 deaths so far but having family and friends who are nurses we know how bad the situation really is, especially the PPE situation- one mask per nurse per day is crazy!
We had planned a trip to Washington DC March 24-31 but of course that was canceled. Hopefully we can reschedule for next year. We would have hit the cherry blossoms at full bloom!

Our great granddaughter Morgan  is now 6 months old and she is a true”ginger” with an attitude. 
Luke has been walking since 9 months and is constantly in motion! He turned 1 on St. Patrick’s Day.
I have been making face masks to give away. Bob is doing some furniture refinishing and we walk 1 to 1 1/2 a mile each day!
I’ve attached pictures taken while we were in Denver!
Best wishes to everyone!

They sent us 3 photos, below --

-Nice looking family!

(Click on the thumbnails below, to view a larger photo.)

Thank you for your contribution, Chink & Judy - Glad to hear from you,
and glad you are all well.

Take care,

Joan

I had a few people ask questions about who "D. Bowden" might be,
in this photo, of a kindergarten class,
shown with Mrs. Kenney, about 1964.

Dave Bowden gave us the note below:

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

 "I'm not sure of the content but there is another D. Bowden. 

That is Don Bowden; a distant relative who graduated around 1950. 

For many years he has operated a small farm not far north of Weedsport
on the main road to Auburn. 

I graduated several of his children when I was principal. 

Both Don and his kids were / are good citizens and good WCS graduates"

Thanks for that information, Dave.

Phyl & Ron

Our snowbirds - Phyl and Ron,
are safely back home in New York.

That's a whole lotta of drivin'!

Glad you both are safely back home, Phyl & Ron!

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

 

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.

 

Now - maybe we can understand better,
how our dogs see things:

****

Below, is a link, which I think is interesting -

It shows the number of "COVID19 CASES"
in each county, across our nation.
Y
ou have to scroll down the page to see it:

NOTE FROM Dave Bowden

(4-15-2020)

Sadly, Dave and Marge have lost 3 close relatives within a year.

"Son Mike died very unexpectedly about a year ago;
brother Roger a month ago,
and grandson Josh just last week."

  Read Dave's heartbreaking note below:

 

 

 

. The loss of our oldest son was less than a year ago, my brother recently,
and just last week, the suicide death of our 30 year old grandson.

. Our son Mike died very unexpectedly about a year ago; brother Roger a month ago, and grandson Josh just last week. 

. Marge and I feel pretty worn; physically and psychologically.

. Our faith is getting us through, although it is not easy.

. Marge and I were thinking just now, that maybe a few of our classmates
would be interested in at least some of the news, as many knew my older brother Roger, who went on to graduate from Syracuse U., and made a career in the Air Force;

. Our oldest son Mike who also graduated from Syracuse
and still holds the Big East Conference diving records;

. And son Ed (Tampa cop for over twenty years)
who was father of Josh, who committed suicide.

. Suicides are always tragic and (sadly) growing rapidly in number nationwide.

 

 

 

We are so sorry, for the crushing losses,
in your beloved family, Dave and Marge.

I know you must feel just devastated.

......................

Class:

Dave and Marge,
would appreciate prayers for their family.

Here is their Post Office address:

I was looking the Bulletin Board, and read the article by Denny,
about 'Free Things' that people get.

My best example is this one, that my Mother got a long time ago.

I have no idea how I got it, but it is
carefully stored in a plastic envelope.

    I have scanned in the contents
of the very old envelope for people to see.

NOTE FROM CONNIE

(3-30-2020)

My granddaughter Alexa,
went to Sloan Kettering, (SK) in NYC
last Monday,(3-23-20), for her scans.

They did not want her on plane, so they had to drive.

They came home.

Tuesday, (3-24-20), the Dr. called
and wanted her back at SK on Friday.

She had surgery Saturday.

She will be home we belive, this Tuesday, (3-31-20)

Prayers for her and the family,
as they forge ahead with this next chapter.

 

Connie - We all will send many prayers for Alexa

I know the Coronavirus is on all of our minds.

Below, is a poem contributed by Phyllis Tierney -

Thank you Phyllis:

 

 

****Prayer for a Pandemic***

May we, who are merely inconvenienced,
Remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors,
Remember those most vulnerable.

May we, who have the luxury of working from home,
Remember those who must choose between preserving their health, or making their rent.

May we, who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close,
Remember those who have no options.

May we, who have to cancle our trips,
Remember those who have no place to go.

May we, who are losing our margin money, in the tumult of the economic market,
Remember those who have no margin at all.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home,
Remember those who have no home.

During this time, when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other,
Let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of kindness to our neighbors.

Amen

__________________

“Thanks for the note of concern, and the get well card from you
and thanks to Bob and Barb, for the card from the class.

First of all, Judy is doing fine, and giving me lots of support.

In Dec. of 2018, I had my gall bladder removed, and everyone said I would feel better, I didn’t.

I still had abdominal pain and shortness of breath.

Feb. 2019 they inserted 4 stents in one of my arteries. The “widow maker”. 

Again, everyone said I would feel better – I didn’t. 

In May, I started to have blood in my urine,  and at that time,
my hematologist decided to do a bone marrow biopsy, as I am anemic. 

That showed my chromosome 5 was damaged.  My Urologist found a tumor in my bladder and removed it.

A few days I went septic and thank God for wonderful nurses and doctors, I recovered.

Meanwhile, my Hematologist helped me get my blood count up
and a lot of my problems disappeared. 

However, In January, I again, had blood in my urine, and my blood count went down.

When they operated, they could not remove all of my tumor.  

Last week, I went to the “Moffitt Cancer Center”, 
and now I am scheduled to have my bladder and prostate removed. 

With luck and a few prayers, that should end the last of my medical problems. 

That is enough about me, as I am sure there are those with more pressing problems.

I am lucky to have such good medical care and caring friends. “

We ALL wish Dick a successful operation, and a speedy return to good health.

My computer was at the computer store,
and I was certainly wishing I could send this note out sooner to you all.
I got the computer back today –
but nobody had been able to get my websites running again –

I had to start to use a brand new website -------

Take care everybody, and DON’T get the Coronavirus!
I know we all will be diligent and keep washing our hands,
and trying to stay away from others, as much as possible, for a while.

MYSTERY

 

 

1. Barbara Melvin

2. Joan Cheeseman

3. Judy Willliams

4. Carol Golamb

5. Donna Rowley ????? Joan Wethey???

6. Phyllis Tierney

 

Several of us THINK the photo was taken at a class picnic,
either at Cayuga Lake, or Fair Haven.

But - all of these are guesses, actually.

MYSTERY PHOTO:

Can anyone in our class, identify these girls?

The one on the left is Barb. Melvin,
and the one on the right, is Phyllis Tierney.

But who are the others?

MYSTERY

If so - Please let me know - (and thanks!)

joanrascal@tampabay.rr.com

Update:

Barb. W. gave this guess:

Identification of gals in the group picture.

My guess is as follows:left to right:

Barb Melvin, Joan Cheeseman, Judy Williams,

MarcellaJorolemon, Joan Wethey, Phyllis Tierney

***

Update:

Judy L. gave this guess:

I couldn't enlarge the photo very much,
but this is what I think...Barb M,   ????, 

Me, Carol, maybe Joan Wethey? & Phyl T.
Carol & I had bought "Bermudas" & shirts alike
& it also looks like we have sunglasses alike !!!!  

How  cute are the rest of the pics.......I love looking back......

we sure had a lot of fun !

(Now a little update to Judy's update) :-)

That is Joan Cheeseman next to B. Melvin....

look at the next pic & Joan C.s shirt
is the same as the photo in question. 

Now the one next to Phy T. looks like Donna Rowley. 

I'm thinking these pics were taken at a class picnic
at Cayuga Lake or Fair Haven. 

If I remember right,
Carol & I got our outfits at the Win ton Shoppe.

Carol Ward

(1-10-20)

Carol came home from the hospital, Sat, the 4th.

She spent 2 days on 2nd. floor, where they finally gave her bouillon, jello, etc.. 

She hadn't eaten while she was in ICU. 

She had tubes inserted to drain the blockage.

Thank goodness this was successful, so she didn't require surgery. 

She feels good but is awfully tired. 

 She enjoys hearing from people.

We are so glad that Carol is back home,
and feeling better!

Carol Rhoades

(10-20-19)

Note from Judy L.:

Had a nice chat with Carol yesterday. 

(She said it was OK to put this on BB ) 

She is now living in an assisted living facility
in a very nice apt. & says she likes it.
..always something going on. 

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. 

Or, of course, snail mail !

Update from Denny Randall:

The photo below, with the stained glass spool box cover
is the 1968 Aeolian which I was able to obtain. 

It not only is capable of playing either by pedal-power, or electrically,
but the valve body is made of plastic which is not affected by humidity. 

It also has a transposer and is capable of playing in any of 5 sequential keys,
for singer accompanying and it also has a mandolin attachment for rinky-tink sound.

Notre Dame - Sketch by Sue:

"Drawing of Paris from the Artist Bridge"

(4-26-19)

Please click on the thumbnail below, for a much larger view:

Sketch By Sue

Please read the write-up by Sue,
pertaining to the drawing above -

You can see the spire, on the "Notre Dame Cathedral",
in this drawing --

 

These renderings of the central skylight of the heart of Paris,
were drawn from the "Artist Bridge", that spans the Seine River,
and takes one to the *Louvre Art Museum that houses the great art of the ages,
such as the Mona Lisa by DaVinci and the great impressionist painters
Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse, and Vincent van Gogh.

The Bridge was named the “Artist Bridge” because it seems that every artist is inspired to draw
the view from the Bridge that spans the scene.  

My son, Jim, did not tell me this, until I had finished my drawing. 

It was a fantastic view, with the spire of the Norte Dame Cathedral being the center and the very heart of the city. 

Last week, the horrendous fire altered this iconic view that lived thru the French Revolution, world war 1 and II ,
and was suddenly gone, as the world watched in disbelief.

The beautiful sculpture and artifacts of this Norte Dame Cathedral
was 80 percent saved from the fire that ravaged this 1160 year old structure,
although the 7 ton spire crashed into the nave of the church.

France has vowed to rebuild this national treasure.

On the 2nd trip to Paris,  Jim gave my drawing  to owners of an apartment house where we stayed,
a block down from the drawing's location .

Jim relayed the message to me that they have made my drawing, part of their permanent art collection ,
and that they were glad to have a drawing of the Bridge closest to them . 

I was thrilled to have my art hung in Downtown Paris.

I returned home to find  that my artist magazine had an ad on the *back cover,
of an artist painting the same view which I had drawn, , to advertise their canvas.

I hope to be able to return one more time to this city of lights.
 
Thanks to my sons Jim and Joe, I have these wonderful memories and inspiration to do art.

It links the Institut de France and the central square of the Palais du Louvre.

Thanks Sue, for the interesting write-up, and the beautiful sketch!

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,

"Seachange",

SeaChange

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

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.

Craig is a very talented and informative writer, indeed!

Bob Leonardi

has written an article in the Auburn Newspaper -

"In Cooking, Practice Does Make Perfect."

He includes 2 recipes:

Potato with Oregano

Sauteed Steak

You can click on the link below to read it on-line,

or go to our "Leonardi" page on our class site:

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.
