SUE -

9-7-21

(A thank you note for our class)

 

hsueguszcza@gmail.com

 

The above, is a painting which Sue did.
"New York Autumn Lakeside"
Cross Lake
She mailed the card to me, hard copy.

She also mailed to me, a very pretty painting,
which she painted, on an additional card.
It is so very pretty, with a sailboat on it.

"Smooth-Sailing"
Skaneateles Lake

If you look very closely,
you can read the words "Smooth Sailing",
written in red on the side of the boat.

The photo above does not do the picture on the hard copy justice, really.
Much more colorful on the actual, hard copy card.

Picture from Pete

(9-19-21)

The beautiful photo below, of a raiinbow,
was sent to us by Pete.
What a great job he did to capture this.

In his own words:

"I was on my front porch just at the end of a rain,
and I had to take two pictures and pit them together
to get the full Rainbow."

You MUST click on this thumbnail above,
to view the large photo --

I hope you are viewing it on a LARGE SCREEN.

Really beautiful - thank you for your contribution, Pete!

For many, the 9/11 attacks
and the trauma associated with them
still feels fresh.

This year will mark the 20th anniversary
of the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

For all America lost, on Sept. 11, 2001,
we also, in the smallest sliver of silver linings,
gained other things:

The sense of unity and patriotism that followed
the World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks,
as well as the United Flight 93 crash,
were unlike anything the United States had seen
since World War II.

It is kind of lonely where he lives,
as they have to be on lock-down
if someone in the building had visited there
found to have "Covid" -
as most assisted living places do.

And now, of course,
Ron's pal "Dooley" has passed away.

I was happy to hear, that his meals are fabulous!
Almost like a restaurant, he said -
and choice of pies for dessert! Yum!

Update on Denny R. as of 8-31-21

My throat is sore as hell as they decided to shove an endo-trachial tube
down into my lungs to check for blood clots---
finding none, they finally proceeded with the main event,
at 1:30 pm, 5 hours after I had arrived there.
I also have the usual 4 inch circles of severe sunburn
front and back, however I'm in NSR !
I have to take it easy for a couple of weeks
to make sure it takes, but it sure is nice not to be gasping for air .
Thanks to EVERYONE FOR THEIR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS!!!
dr

 

Denny - Sure happy to hear the good news!

Yes, - DO take it easy and give everything a chance to settle in!

MORE HAPPY NEWS:

FROM JUDY LOFFT

(8-31-21)

We were blessed with another little great grandson in June (no. 8),
(Logan, )and will be having another one in Oct. !!! Lotsa’ fun !!!!!

 Little story.....Bud's real name is Seymour Kenneth Lofft, (named after his grandfather), but has always been known as Bud or Ken.   Scott (our grandson, baby's dad) has always been real close to Bud.  .....Was with him all  the time when he was little.  Scott told me they were naming  the baby  Logan Seymour Lofft, but didn't tell Bud.  Well, needless to say, Bud was so surprised and very happy when he found out !!!

Logan was born with a cleft lip & palate....they found out a few months into the pregnancy from an ultra sound that he had this problem.  He has had one operation at 2 mo. old & will have to have a few more over a period of time.  So difficult to see your little gr. grandson  with this problem but it looks better after just the one.  He still has to be fed thru a tube but he's gaining weight, Thank goodness!

 

 

Congratulations to Judy and Bud - ENJOY!

Many of us have noticed the days getting shorter,
but standard time does not return until Nov. 7th.

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

We all know that in just a matter of days,
it will be the 20th anniversary of the
Twin Towers tragedy.

Although time flies -
yes, like a roll of toilet paper,
but for some unknown reason,
it really DOES seem
like 20 years ago to me.

We all remember where we were,
when that horrible event happened.
and how we just could not
take our eyes off of the TV set
the whole rest of the day,
watching the horrifying event.

(Aug. 28th)

Denny Randall's D C Conversion
has been rescheduled for Monday,
August 30th

Note from Denny:

Hi - Here's the latest--
My next electrocution has been changed
from 5:30 am Wednesday to 9:30 Monday.
I had to get a covid test yesterday
for admission to Upstate.
Sigh!!!

 

Denny - We wish you the very best outcome,
for your successful and finally desired results
of the D C Conversion.

DENNY RANDALL

Our "Sunshine Fund"

 

Sunshine Fund Bear

 

Sent Denny a best wishes and get well card,
from our class, including some lottery tickets.

Here is a note he sent to us today:

Hi----

I finally took the ticket down to the Shurfine
(formerly Big M) and scanned it---
I was amazed, I'm 50 bucks richer!!!!!
Thank you

 

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

 

Hi---No, I don't feel any better--
Next "electrocution" 5:00 am 9-1 at Upstate.
The cellulitis resolved with a shot in the butt, an iv drip,
and 17 days worth of Keflex.
It never rains, but what it pours, pun intended. During the storm Tuesday,the big apple tree in my front yard, blew down, right across Hamilton St..
The fire department cleared it out of the road
and the next morning at 7:00 (in the rain) my neighbor
across the street , Scott Randolph showed up with his chainsaw,
followed by my brother Phil shortly thereafter.
Between us we got it all cut up and stacked to
behind the house for my woodstove.
I wasn't much help, just driving the tractor hauling the wood.
The brush is all neatly stacked for the village to chip.
I saw Bruce this morning at the bottle recycling place.
I'm sure sick of this rain--
everything is flooded and it's raining again right now.
Thank everyone for me for their thoughts and prayers.
dr

 

Sure do hope you will be feeling better, very soon, Denny.

What a shame your apple tree fell down.
It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago,
that a different tree fell down in your yard.

STAN WELLER

For those of you who wanted to know Stan's address

Here it is:

Stanley Weller
Box # 54
Walworth, NY 14568

(Our thanks to Barb. W. for getting that for us.)

Also, our Sunshine Committe sent (Sympathy) cards to Stan and Gordie.

Connie sent a white rose to the funeral home in advance, from us,
but she was not able to attend, (on time), due to the fact
that that bus that turned over, near the Weedsport exit,
prevented her from being able to get to the services on time.

However, 3 hours later, she did get to see Gordie, Stan., and Alan.

Gordie appreciated it.

Thanks, Connie!

THE BOWDENS

(July 21st)

What a pleasant surprise!

Dave Bowden called me a few nights ago,
to thank me for some (Olympic) information
I had sent to him. He enjoys sports, of course,
and in fact just recently both he and Marge
had gone out to see a baseball game,
(I think the Rays), and really enjoyed it.

Their team won.

I asked about their little doggie Coco -
and Dave mentioned that the "puppy"
is really no longer a puppy all that much,
since it is about 7 months old.

He also mentioned that both he and Marge'
now suspect, that possibly Coco is not
a purebred 'Pug" dog -
which is what they are used to having,
since Coco is sprouting longer legs,
and becoming larger than a typical Pug would.

However, Coco is still at least a puppy at heart,
and enjoys playing, likes people,
and really enjoys sitting on their laps.

Thanks for the phone call, Dave

Hope you keep feeling better -

I know our class all send their thoughts,
prayers and best wishes to you and Marge.

Blessings to you both.

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

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:

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

They show the updated information,

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 -

Pete says he is doing well,
and that he has a great family,

Sounds to me, that he must have a huge pill box -

Keep up the good work, Pete -

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

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:

Happy to report that both Dave and Marge
are in their new (assisted living) apartment now.

4100 East Fletcher Ave.

Apt. 813

Tampa, Fl. 33613

And - they have a new "companion" -

(click thumbnail below for larger view) .

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.

DAVE BOWDEN

Dave and Marge have a new address:

4100 East Fletcher Ave.

Apt. 813

Tampa, Fl. 33613

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.

when you have to scan them from a book,
which does not lie flat.

Good goin', and many thanks, Pete!

A few days ago, Dave passed out 2ce, in the same day,
and fell down, both times.

He has been admitted to a hospital in Tampa
to determine the cause, by a neurologist
and I assume other specialists.

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!

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.

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!

Of course, Sue has moved out of that house,
and now lives in Camillus.

Recently there was an article written in the Auburn Newspaper,
and this is what the house looks like now:

This has been sold again. 2019

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.

newThe NEW "DIRECTORY3" page:

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"

Mike Randall

(Denny's Son)

(April 23rd, 2015)

Mike has written a very impressive article.

"A Diversified Collection"

He has a HUGE collection of toy trucks,
of all shapes, sizes and ages.

I can assure you, that you have never seen such a collection
of this size.

Great article and great photos!

He started to collect them since he was a little kid.

You can read his story on our link below.

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.
