Hello CREW… 12-16-10
The CREW arrived at Corky Bell’s around 5:30 and YES! The party started! (Thank you for the comments you sent about the music! We are a Happy CREW! )
Everyone seemed to be in great spirits! No pouting, no crying, no whining, just folks that wanted to have a good time! We started by sampling deep fried pickles! The ole Indian had never tried them, so he ordered a basket full and everyone gave them a try! A little salty, a little sour but a lot of good! Before dinner arrived, jokes were told, even one about Indians! Luv those kind!
Lots of talk about the Cocoa Football team winning their 3rd straight State Championship!
Kudos! To coaches and players!
Myrna told us why the STAR player Chevy? did not get to play! Yikes! It surprised us all! Later two former Cheerleaders led us in a couple of the old school cheers and one of the gals even sang us a song! My! My! We are a talented bunch!
ATTENDEES: David Alexander, Dan Shoemaker, George & Lois Reinhart, Myrna Swindell,
Gerry Trammell, Billy Weinberg, Clark & Marilyn True, Harvey & Sandy Baker, Ty Epling,
Mary Laycock & Ralph, Tom & Gloria Tinker. Server Krysti was very efficient!
Email from Jim Ward: CHS #14
It was exciting seeing Cocoa win the game Sat. I watched it on tv, but earlier in the day
It’s been a long time since I have talked to you but I know you are doing well because
Sarah Crockett Gamble sends me a copy of the Crew Review. Jim is doing a lot better.
He is now able to eat a few things and is not sleeping as much as he did.
The mass in his right lung and neck have grown about 1 cm but have not spread any
place else at this point. The lesions on his brain have gotten smaller but are still there.
that happened during the early years of OUR lifetime. Probably any kid in high
school right now would not recognize anything on this video… YOU WILL! 🙂
Ye Li has Updated the video so I am re-sending it for you viewing pleasure!
Hope you like it as much as I do! http://yeli.us/Flash/Fire.html

Another Classmate Book: Per email from Suanna Bird CHS
LaVerne (Morgan) Roxby, Class of ’64. Some of the crew may remember her sister as
well, Babs Morgan. Anyway, we are all so proud of LaVerne’s accomplishment and
have purchased a copy of her book. It’s a wonderful and entertaining book of short
stories. I thought someone in the “crew” might be interested too. The web link is below.
Thanks, Suanna Bird-Hamilton THE NUN AND THE GARDENER

Can you believe what you read in the papers?
In the Today NP Wed Dec 1st, it was stated that the Rapture will occur on May 21st,
this year and we already know that the end of life on earth is on 12-21-2012.
Do you suppose there are enough HOT WINGS and COLD BEER to last till then?
Being 25% Cherokee Indian, I am praying for one more MAIDEN SACRIFICE CEREMONY
before I go to the Happy Hunting Grounds! Hope they have heap much FIREWATER!
Ha – Na – Tah – Chee!

Conrad Koch to CREW via email to Corinne and B-T-B:
“First let me tell you both that it was so great getting together and seeing
everyone last Wed night. I can’t tell you how great it is to be blessed with
friends that care. There is no other group on earth that is quite like that
bunch we’ve grown to know and love!
Please tell everyone that I really appreciate their coming by JDs!”
Conrad is one of the charter CREW members. Always a pleasure seeing him!
From Classmate Barbara Greiner-Robinson: December 12 (the big 70, can’t believe it).
I kept two of my grandchildren overnight, so Mom and Dad could go to the GA Tech/GA game.
They are 5 and 11 months. Had to get up once during the night with Grant – 11 months.
What can I say, it keeps me young, or that’s what I like to tell myself. I’m sorry about the Gators,
but not really. Spent Thanksgiving with my brother in Madison, FL and his family, a bunch of Gators.
My two nieces went to the game, that’s one they will want to forget. Really enjoy reading your weekly
e-mails, makes me want to get down to Cocoa on a Wednesday night. Keep up the good work!
Thanks Barbara… Hope to see ya at a future event! B-T-B
Soooo funny! http://dilbert.com/2010-12-01/ This is the one I mentioned to you Amber!
OMG! It’s almost NAP time… Gotta go! luv ya, B-T-B
