I am glad I made some folks smile.  I previously worked with an Arkansas lawyer in Louisiana doing FEMA appeals and arbitrations. He was a very funny guy and we shared a lot a lot of silly stories.  I will tell one more - then promise to tell no more.

It's early morning in a dentist's office. The dentist goes into his waiting room and sees a man sitting in a chair.

Dentist - Hello, I didn't realize that I had any patients this early.  What seems to be the problem.

Man - I think I'm a moth.

Dentist - A moth? You don't need a dentist, you need a psychiatrist!

Man - I know.

Dentist - If you know, what are you doing here? I'm a dentist.

Man - The light was on.

I promise - No more.

For a combination of intellect and a little bit of humor, I offer the following word:

hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia - meaning a morbid fear of long words.  Look it up.  If you had a fear of long words I can't imagine you would want to use this one.

Nancy Nelson (Hays)

Bill...winkha-ha.  This is one phobia I won't ever have as I never have or never will use words "THAT LONG".  That is probably implying my intellect is not up there with " smarties "...ha ha!  I will say though... I was able to pronounce it. I was good in high school English!  And of course, our generation learned phonics.

Enough intellectualism.

What did the pirate say when he turned 80 years of age.

Pirate: "Aye, Matey."

Nancy,  Thanks for the ariel view of the northwest end of Fort Madison - it looks like the old town may be breeding some new life with the new housing projects !!!  I believe I heard through Sharon Nabulsi that Robert & Linda (Dietchler) Johnson are living in one of those new homes up above Bluff Road - looks wonderful !!!!  It would be wonderful to see more of the older homes restored - we had some real beauties along Ave E and all around the city parks back in our day !  Seems like more people just want brand new homes though. 

All is well here in Eastern North Carolina.  East Carolina University had Freshman Dorm "Move in Day" over the past week - about 4,000 of them hit Greenville over a 3 day period - the city is "rockin" again and traffic is a bear !  Classes begin this coming Monday, August 19th. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer - we are praying for NO HURRICANES in this part of the country through the fall.  Seems like our worst storms have hit in September and October - no fun !!  We expect to be in our newly constructed house in about 4 weeks.  Our email and phone number will remain the same, but I will update the street address after the move.

Bill:  I too can pronounce the “hippo” word but have never heard of it! Keep your quips coming! It does entertain us Septogenerians! Is that a word Bill?

Hi to all you classmates who post and read this stuff! REMINDER: Class of 1961 60th Class Reunion in September 2021! Put it on your calenders!

Good luck to Bill and Sandy on your new move in Four weeks!

Use the adjective sesquipedalian to describe a word that's very long and multisyllabic. For example the word sesquipedalian is in fact sesquipedalian.Sesquipedalian can also be used to describe someone or something that overuses big words, like a philosophy professor or a chemistry textbook.

FYI this is Sharon Scholl-Nabulsi not “Nabulski” as named in the photo of our class luncheon yesterday! Just in case you didn’t catch the correction on FB! It was a great time and good to see Brad Wiedmann and Pat Holmes!

BTW I am working on the 60th Reunion Sept 9-10, 2021! I hope you all can attend! Happy Fall and Winter and Happy Holidays to all!❤️❤️

Darla Qualls (Dennison)

Great picture.  So nice so many could be there.  Love to attend one but it’s a little far to go to lunch from TX.  Hope to see you all at the next reunion though.

Sharon reminded me recently that I had not updated my Profile or commented on the Message Forum for over 6 months.  How quckly time passes!  A major reason is I have had health issues since October 2018.  I have circulation problems, first my left leg.  I was a patient of Wound Care for 8 months, 1-2 times a week, 8 weeks of hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments, 5 days a week, 2 hours a day.  Vascular surgery May 2019 to seal off a collapsed vein.  Then, in September 2019, the same ciculation problem appeared on my right leg.  1-2 times a week to Wound Care and I am scheduled for the same vascular procedure on December 27, 2019 to seal off another collapsed vein.

2 weeks ago, I had my second cataract surgery.   I had 3 asthma attacks in September 2019 requiring hospital stays.  I recently had a chair lift installed in my townhouse so I can go up and down the stairs.  What a Blessing!.  I wish I had done it sooner.  And, I use a cane for balance.  Who is getting old???

Through it all, I have continued to work in my tax firm and traveling with the tax seminars I have done for almost 30 years..I am slowly cutting back on the traveling but NO RETIREMENT from doing tax returns.

I plan on attending the 60th Reunion Class of '61 in September 2021.

I am in recovery mode and plan to be back to my normal self in the next few months.  I have found that I am blessed with family, friends and loving and loyal clients of my tax firm.

Enjoy each new day because no one knows how many are left.  Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Joyce Casady (Sheumaker)


So sorry to hear about your health problems, but I am glad to hear that you are in the recovering mode!!

I will be praying for you to continue to heal and completely recover!!!

Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year to you, also.


11/14/19 08:34 AM #1124    


Nancy Nelson (Hays) sorry to hear about all your health issues.  You certainly have had allot on your plate. Glad you are still able to work as it seems to keep you centered and gives you resilience. At our age I'm sure most of us are dealing with aging problems. We just hope we can "bounce back" from them when they hit us.  Thinking our "glass is half full" instead of " half empty" can go along way in recovery. It seems that is your way of thinking!

 Looking forward to 2021 reunion when we come together to celebrate 60 years out of high school. What a milestone that will be!  

Happy Thanksgiving & Merry Christmas to you. Wishing 2020 is a great year for you!

Brad Wiedmann

My brother, Dick (Class of '57), told me years ago that aging is not for sissies.  I believe several of us can relate?  I think it might have been a saying by Red Skelton, "When I wake up in the morning and don't smell flowers or hear organ music, I get out of bed." (Not an exact quote.)  My favorite reply to people that tell me to have a nice day, is, "I'm workin' on it".  Anyway, am in beautiful, sunny and warm/cold CO for a few weeks house and dog sitting while family heads off to Australia/NZ where my granddaughter is studying abroad.  I wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas.  Yes, I said, "Merry Christmas."

Linda Kirchner (Schrader)

So glad to be back on the website...recently bought a new computer & couldn't remember my password. A HUGE thanks to Sharon for her saved my day. It's frustrating sometimes. Sorry...I know I've forgotten a few birthdays. Really enjoyed the last luncheon at Wever...I think we forgot to take a pic of everyone. Missed the ones who didn't make it. Hope to see more next month back in Ft. Mad. at River Rock. You are doing a great job Nancy...we all appreciate your effort to organize the group.
