their heads & chant “Hoodie-Hoo”. It’s a day to chase away winter & bring
in spring. Everyone in the northern hemisphere are sick and tired of winter at
this point and a little crazy being cooped up inside all winter,not seeing the sun!
P.S.  Judging from the weather up north…  IT  DOESN’T  WORK! Sad smile

Hello CREW… 02-24-11 Going to the Dogs Isn’t a Bad Thing

Hello CREW… Red rose 02-24-11

Wise ole Indian:  Peace
Two cowboys come upon an Indian lying on his stomach with ear to the ground.
One of the cowboys stops and says to the other,     “You see that Indian?”
says the other cowboy. The first one says,  “He’s listening to the ground.
He can hear things for miles in any direction.”
Just then the Indian looks up.   “Covered wagon, about two miles away.
Have two horses, one brown, one white. Man, Woman, household effects in wagon.”
says the cowboy to his friend. “This Indian knows how far away they are,
how many horses, what color they are, who is in the wagon, and what is in the wagon!
That’s jus amazing!”
The Indian looks up and says, “Wagon ran over me about a half hour ago.” Ugh!

“You are what you think about all day long.” – Robert H. Schuller

Yikes!  I am turning into a 56 Chevy with a cooler of Bud!
Where Who is that  “sweetie”  in the back seat?

Open the attachment and sit back and enjoy.

Amazing, the study of psychology.  Here we have a set of stairs, adjacent to a moving escalator next to it…. both of which lead to the same spot on the floor of the upper level. At first no one took the stairs, almost 97% of the people took the escalator. Okay. I think that could be a normal expected result.
Then a group of engineers got together, and decided they wanted to change the percentage around.
Notice what these scientists did. Clever. And now they have reversed the percentages, as a whopping 66% more people
take the stairs, than ride the escalator.

Dis’ is Wa’ I Wuz Try’n Ta’ Tel Ya’

1) Any time you see an email that says “forward this on to ’10’ (or however many) of your friends”, “sign this petition”, or “you’ll get bad luck” or “you’ll get good luck” or “you’ll see something funny on your screen after you send it” or whatever — it almost always has an email tracker program attached that tracks the cookies and emails of those folks you forward to. The host sender is getting a copy each time it gets forwarded and then is able to get lists of ‘active’ email addresses to use in SPAM emails or sell to other spammers. Even when you get emails that demand you send the email on if you’re not ashamed of God/Jesus — that is email tracking, and they are playing on our conscience. These people don’t care how they get your email addresses – just as long as they get them. Also, emails that talk about a missing child or a child with an incurable disease “how would you feel if that was your child” — email tracking. Ignore them and don’t participate!

2) Almost all emails that ask you to add your name and forward on to others are similar to that mass letter years ago that asked people to send business cards to the little kid in Florida who wanted to break the Guinness Book of Records for the most cards. All it was, and all any of this type of email is, is a way to get names and ‘cookie’ tracking information for telemarketers and spammers — to validate active email accounts for their own profitable purposes.

You can do your Friends and Family members a GREAT favour by sending this information to them. You will be providing a service to your friends. And you will be rewarded by not getting thousands of spam emails in the future!
Do yourself a favour and STOP adding your name(s) to those types of listing regardless how inviting they might sound! Or make you feel guilty if you don’t! It’s all about getting email addresses and nothing more.

You may think you are supporting a GREAT cause, but you are NOT!

Instead, you will be getting tons of junk mail later and very possibly a virus attached! Plus, we are helping the spammers get rich! Let’s not make it easy for them!

ALSO: Email petitions are NOT acceptable to Congress or any other organization – i.e. social security, etc. To be acceptable, petitions must have a “signed signature” and full address of the person signing the petition, so this is a waste of time and you are just helping the email trackers.

Old Indian Joke:   Sneaky Cute Squaw from JD’s told me this one!
Lone Ranger & Tonto went camping in desert.  After the tent is set up,
both men fell sound asleep.  Some hours later,  Tonto wakes the

Lone Ranger says, “Kemo Sabe, look towards sky, what you see?”

Lone Ranger replies, “I see millions of stars.”

“What that tell you?” asked Tonto.

Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, “Astronomically speaking,

it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

The sky is very clear so it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow!

What’s it tell you, Tonto?”

Tonto is silent for a moment, then says,
“Kemo Sabe, you dumber then buffalo chip. Someone has stolen tent.”

Email forwarded by Sara Crockett:

Wanted to let you know that our classmate,  Bob Anderson, died on Jan 7.

Bob was such a sweet,smart guy in high school. We used to refer to him as

‘little Andy’ because of  Robert Anderson, who was ahead of us ‘Class of 56’.

I had connected with him on Face book—but had not actually had any contact in

quite a while.  I received a Face book message from his wife Paulette

several days ago letting me know.  He had suffered a long battle with cancer.

You may have already been told this, but if not keep his family in your prayers

and let others that you may know about his passing. Joan Gray-Griffies

Over heard at CREW event! My computer is  “SNAFU” or  “FUBR” !
Just a reminder, Classmate Jerry Fine builds, repairs and rejuvenates old
computers in his Cocoa home. Charges a reasonable fee for parts and time.
He fixed mine and it is as fast as it was when it was new!    Open-mouth smile
Classmates get a good deal!   So if you need help or you need a computer,
laptops included, give him a call!  Where This is Jerry’s hobby, not a business!

GET READY! Winking smile Next week the CREW will be a Bizzarro’s Italian, Merritt Island!

6PM Wed March 9th: After some discussion it has been decided that we will
Join-Up with Classmates of 63-64-65  at Kay’s Barbecue, Cocoa.
Their meeting, not a class reunion, usually occurs once a year when
Rene & Sue LeRoy are in town is like ours…
a gathering of CHS Classmates and Friends.
They have invited ole B-T-B to attend in the past and it is always
an enjoyable evening!   Mark your calendars… 27 days & counting.

IMPORTANT: I will remind everyone the week before and we will need to RSVP
with the number of us who will attend. (Kay’s ask for a head count)
