Dear Friends,
    This year is so very different for all of us, but the most important and constant thing we are grateful for is the fact that we are blessed with such wonderful family and friends.  We feel so very fortunate and wish we could help all those who are in crisis. You are all in our hearts and prayers.  May God bless us all.  Until we can safely get together again, stay safe and smile....  because you are loved.
                                                                                                       Dave & Pam

It's almost 2021, I'm  73 + years old and I still have so many unanswered questions!!!!

I haven’t found out who let the dogs out ... or

where’s the beef ... or

how to get to Sesame Street ... or

why Dora doesn’t just use Google Maps?

Why do all flavors of fruit loops taste exactly the same ... and

how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsiepop?

Why are  eggs packaged in a flimsy carton, but batteries are secured in plastic that’s tough as nails?

Why is “abbreviated”  such a long word ...

why is there a D in ‘fridge’ but not in refrigerator...

why is  lemon juice made with artificial flavor yet dish-washing liquid is made with real lemons...

why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections...

why do you have to “put your two cents in”, but it’s only a “penny for your thoughts” ... where’s that extra penny going to...

why does The Alphabet Song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star have the same tune...

and just what exactly is Victoria’s secret ...

where is Waldo?...

Can you hear me now?

Image result for

What year was this?   Can anyone figure it out?  Year and make of cars?  Mayor (Ed Harrington?) 

02/15/21 09:58 PM #414    

Athena Medeiros (Adams)

Dave, ed Harrington was mayor. We were one of the last classes that marched down William St. this picture has to be in the low 60's. My guess would be 1963-64. Cannot see the cars clear enough to determine what they are.,

there is a big hint on the year of the photo. there is a big sign for the YMCA Building Fund Campaign. I will find out what year the YMCA was built and figure that construction began two years before that and the fund raising began two years before that. My recollection was that it opened in 1967 or thereabouts, but not sure. I will find out and post the results. I believe there is a plaque up on the wall that should give us that date.


02/16/21 07:21 AM #416    

Robert Feingold

The Plaque on the wall of the Y says the YMCA was opened in 1972. So if the construction took 2 years and the fundraising took 2 years. the year of the photo would have been 1968. But I could be wrong by 6 months for each estimate. So let's say 1968 or 1969.

Graduation-Walk-1967-Spinner-Publications (1)



When you save the photo, the above words appear. 

Apparently, the photo came from Spinner and is says its the Graduation Walk of 1967. 

I recognize Dr Paul Walsh, Superintendent McFaden and Ed Harrington.

Hi Dave,

Bob's comment about this picture is correct.  However, the only car that is recognizable is either a 1961 or 62 Chevrolet Impala.  If you recall, I use to drive a 62 Impala to school during our Senior year after my dad made me sell my 57 Chevy to help pay to go to college that fall.  Also, it appears to me that the young woman on the left side in front might be our classmate Chris Izyk Gaspar.

Dave,  The historical info you send, no matter humorous or serious , brings me back to when life was so much simpler.  Thanks so much for those glorious memories.  Keep them coming.

Yes, it's that magical time of year again when the Darwin Awards are bestowed,   honoring the   least evolved   among us.
Here is the glorious winner:

1.  When his .38 caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach, California would-be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked.
And now, the honorable mentions:
2.  The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat cutting machine and after a little shopping around, submitted a claim to his insurance company. The company expecting negligence sent out one of its men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine and he also lost a finger.. The chef's claim was approved.
3.  A man who shoveled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her.
4.  After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn't discovered for 3 days.
5.  An American teenager was in the hospital recovering from serious head wounds received from an oncoming train. When asked how he received the injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how close he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit.
6.  A man walked into a Louisiana Circle-K, put a $20 bill on the counter, and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled, leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer... $15. (If someone points a gun at you and gives you money, is a crime committed?)
7.  Seems an Arkansas guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided that he'd just throw a cinder block through a liquor store window, grab some booze, and run. So, he lifted the cinder block and heaved it over his head at the window The cinder block bounced back and hit the would-be thief on the head, knocking him unconscious. The liquor store window was made of Plexiglas. The whole event was caught on videotape.
8.  As a female shopper exited a New York convenience store, a man grabbed her purse and ran. The clerk called 911 immediately, and the woman was able to give them a detailed description of the snatcher. Within minutes, the police apprehended the snatcher. They put him in the car and drove back to the store. The thief was then taken out of the car and told to stand there for a positive ID. To which he replied, “Yes, officer, that's her That's the lady I stole the purse from."
9.  The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man walked into a Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan at 5 A.M., flashed a gun, and demanded cash.  The clerk turned him down because he said he couldn't open the cash register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk said they weren't available for breakfast.. The frustrated gunman walked away.
10.  When a man attempted to siphon gasoline from a motor home parked on a Seattle street by sucking on a hose, he got much more than he bargained for. Police arrived at the scene to find a very sick man curled up next to a motor home near spilled sewage. A police spokesman said that the man admitted to trying to steal gasoline, but he plugged his siphon hose into the motor home's sewage tank by mistake. The owner of the vehicle declined to press charges saying that it was the best laugh he'd ever had and the
perp had been punished enough!
In the interest of bettering mankind, please share these with friends and family.... unless of course one of these individuals by chance is a distant relative or a long lost friend. In that case, be glad they are distant and hope they remain lost.
