January: HAPPY NEW YEAR! We made it this far and I am sure you are getting very tired of hearing please continued to follow the recommendations given to us by the scientist and doctors. In a few months, possibly this month but definitely February or March, there should be a vaccine available for the 72/73 year olds so hang in there. The virus is still trying to make a comeback in our state where a number of people are still passing it around. But, like we keep reminding you, we have sound judgment in practical matters so we should be safe.
We added another video to our website appropriately called “Happy New Year.” It is quite entertaining and hopefully will bring back memories of happier times. As with all the others, this too is on the “Stories and Videos” page on our website. The total number of visits on our class website for the month of December was over 644. Right now the total number of visits since the site was opened in 2006 is at 92,836 and that includes the 400 times that Ron Siegle tried to get on.
If you happen to have any good news, good stories, comments or good information on how to keep our minds busy through the pandemic and you would like to share them here on this website please let us know.
Ok, see if these jokes happen to help you find your smile.
My dog used to chase people on a bike a lot. It got so bad, finally I had to take his bike away.
I am so good at sleeping, I can do it with my eyes closed.
My wife accused me of being immature, I told her to get out of my fort.
I think I would like a job cleaning mirrors, it’s something I could really see myself doing.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
Birthdays are good for you, Statistics show that people who have the most live the longest.
Once my dog ate all the Scrabble tiles. He started leaving little messages around the house.
The nice thing about being senile is you can hide your own Easter eggs.
Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it.
An elderly man is stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and is asked where he is going at this time at night. The man replies, “I am on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late.” The officer then asks, “Really? Who is giving that lecture at this time of night?” The man replies, “That would be my wife.”
Doctor: You’re in good health. You’ll live to be eighty.
Patient: But, doctor, I am 80 right now.
Doctor: See, what did I tell you.
A man and woman have just had their 50th wedding anniversary. The husband turns to his wife and asks, “What do you want to do to celebrate our anniversary dear?” She replies, “Let’s run up stairs and make love.” He turns to her and says, “Well make up your mind, we can’t do both!”

It wasn’t too many years ago that if you happened to come upon a person that seemed to be talking out loud to themselves  you would quickly cross the street. But if they are using today’s technology it may be safe to pass by them. But, “News Bulletin” the prior group still exists.

OK, it’s 2021 and things will get better, maybe including the jokes.
Continue to do whatever you are doing as long as it meets the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines. It all comes down to our developed common sense which is giving us the ability to make the right choices by using the only defenses we currently have.
Please stay healthy, hopeful and happy through these most difficult times and we will continue to keep in touch.  Thank you.
Your Ballard High School Class of 1966 reunion committee.
