Another year draws to a close and this will be the last 'LHS News' of 2009. It's been a very busy year and as usual went by way too fast! The LHS News list continues to grow and I appreciate all of you. I thank you for numerous comments, news items, words of encouragement, comments of enjoyment of the news, and just plain 'ol 'hellos'! Not too probable I suppose, but let us hope this new year will bring nothing but good news!
I have had several comments on Art Farrington aka Santa. He seems to be very well liked and popular by all who know him. Below is a link to the KSWO-TV story they ran on him. There is a short commercial then the 'story' on Santa. Great clip.http://www.kswo.com/global/category.asp?c=168869&clipId=&topVideoCatNo=84969&topVideoCatNoB=168916&topVideoCatNoC=168912&topVideoCatNoD=168914&topVideoCatNoE=107263&clipId=4412915&flvUri=&partnerclipid=&topVideoCatNo=0&autoStart=true&activePane=info&LaunchPageAdTag=homepage&clipFormat=flv
Talked with a member of Jean (Shanklin) Orr's family. Jean remains same (in coma), but was moved Monday or Tuesday to a 'speciality' hospital in OKC for further tests and evaluation. Please keep Jean and her family in your prayers.
This message from Marilyn Morris, class '56......
"I'm writing a new book about Military Brats and would like to ask if any of our LHS Army Brats would like to contribute? My first book, 'Once a Brat', is being updated to include comments, stories, issues, etc. about being a Military Brat and how it has affected you in your adult life. I will need to send those willing to participate a Contributor's Release form for electronic signature and return to me via email attachment before March 1st, so we can schedule this book "Once a Brat, Always a Brat" (proposed title) for release in April/May.
Any questions, please contact me at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm having a blast reuniting with other Brats who are sending me volumes of stories, and can always use more. I'm also writing a second book about lupus (SLE) and if anyone on the list has lupus, please contact me. Many thanks! Marilyn"
