Classmate update ~ GOOD news.......
Arrrrrrrh! Well, after the great picture of 'Skipper' Glen Thomason and his boat went out....had an email from Glen to let me (and Yvonne) know.... that was an 'older' picture of his Windjammer. He now has a cabin cruiser!
Glen is having way too much fun!
Received this email from Ed Harps' wife Carole....
"He's doing very well, and the surgery was completely successful! All three of our sons and two daughters-in-law have been very loving and supportive.Our oldest son even programmed our Direct TV to record space shuttle and International Space Station events, and you know how he likes all that NASA stuff."
(Ed had aortic valve replacement on Tuesday)
From Marilyn Morris:
"I went to see JoNell (Dlugosch) Dickson at home last week. She was still wearing her neck brace and her left arm was still in a soft cast, but she looks wonderful. No wrinkles or lines. But I told her that was the hard way to get a face lift! In the "miracle" department: When their car collided with the horse, the emergency vehicles were already responding to a car on fire a little way down the road, so they were able to reach the Dicksons in a very short time. And they were amazed that Ronnie and Jo Nell were able to open their car doors to escape when their car caught on fire; by all reasoning, they should not have been able to do so." Regards, Marilyn
