A great idea for the Holiday Season – from Nancy Perryman Parris

If you go to this web site, www.letssaythanks.com you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will
print it, and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq. You can't pick out who gets it,
but it will go to some member of the armed services. How AMAZING it would be if we could get
everyone we know
to send one! This is a great site. Please send a card. It is FREE and it only
takes a second. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if the soldiers received a bunch of these? No matter your
position on the war, our guys and gals over there need to know we are behind them.

                               (I did it, and it takes about 2 minutes. Surely you can spare 2 minutes. -Ed.)

TIPS FROM THE REDNECK BOOK OF MANNERS

                                    from Smoke Signals etiquette editor Betty Jo

 

*PERSONAL HYGIENE*
      
        1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job
           that should be done in private using one's OWN truck keys.
      
        2. Proper use of toiletries can stall bathing for several days
          .  However, if you live alone,...deodorant is a waste of
           good beer money.
      
        3. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no,
           as they tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the
           taste of finger foods.

 

WARNINGS TO WARRIORS – from Smoke Signals medical advisor Dr. Vinny Boombatz

 

Men, if you want to live long and prosper,.. well,… at least live long, the Pacific Health Research
institute recommends avoiding these 9 mid-life risk factors.


1. Being overweight, a body-mass index of 25 or more. 2. High blood glucose levels, 3. High
triglyceride levels.
4. High blood pressure. 5. Low grip strength - unable to squeeze at least 86
pounds of pressure with a handheld device .6. Smoking. 7. Consuming 3 or more alcoholic drinks
daily. 8. Not graduating from high school. 9. Being unmarried.

Be Advised –These Phishers, unlike Bobby Pleasants, actually catch something.
A couple of weeks ago a man ordered some documents from the US Government printing office. 
The payment was put on his credit card through PayPal.  It didn’t require him to open a PayPal
account; the money just flowed through them.  Well, today, he received an email to “Dear PayPal
member” pretending to be from PayPal stating that they were confirming receipt of a payment on his
credit card for a document, that he didn’t order, from US Legal FormsThere was a link at the bottom
of the email to dispute the transaction.  The email looked VERY LEGITIMATE

 

Since he didn’t order the document he clicked on the link to dispute the transaction.  For some
reason, he was unsuccessful in opening the link. He went directly to PayPal, calling them on the
phone.  They advised him that he did not have a PayPal account and that the email was bogus. 
They do not send out emails to “PayPal Member” – they always use the actual name on the account. 
The link would have been to a site that would have gotten his credit card number.  They also told him
to expect more of these, now that the ‘phishers’ have his email address.

 


THIS IS A TEST! from David Greenwood, who found 2 out of 3.

Two nearly identical pictures will appear on the screen. Over 8000 people were tested to see if they
could find the 3 differences and only 19 were successful. See how observant you are. If you find all 3
differences, you are one of a very elite group of people. CLICK for fun in the Fjord

FROM THE                          LAUGH TRACK from webmstr. Phil Aquino

 

 

Two women were out for a Saturday stroll. One had a Doberman and the other, a Chihuahua
As they walked down the street, the one with the Doberman said to her friend, "Let's go over
to that bar for a drink."

The lady with the Chihuahua said, "We can't go in there. We've got dogs with us."

The one with the Doberman said, "Just watch, and do as I do."  


They walked over to the bar and the one with the Doberman put on a pair of dark glasses
and started to walk in.   The bouncer at the door said, "Sorry, lady, no pets allowed."

The woman with the Doberman said, "You don't understand. This is my seeing-eye dog."

The bouncer said, "A Doberman?"

The woman said, "Yes, they're using them now.  They're very good."

The bouncer said, "OK, come on in."

The lady with the Chihuahua thought that convincing him that a Chihuahua was a seeing-eye
dog may be a bit more difficult, but thought, "What the heck," so she put on her dark |
glasses and started to walk in.

Once again the bouncer said, "Sorry, lady, no pets allowed."

The woman said, "You don't understand. This is my seeing-eye dog."

The bouncer said, "A Chihuahua?"

The woman with the Chihuahua said, "A Chihuahua?  They gave me a FREAKIN Chihuahua?!"

Nov. 17 – We find them, almost before they’re lost. This week, we received an email from David
‘Peb’ Stone, inquiring into the whereabouts of William Sidney ‘Bill’ Dooley. According to Peb,
Dooley was in our class, but failed to graduate with us. A check of our resources showed little more
that a couple of yearbook entries, without the accompanying pictures. There was little to indicate
that he was even a member of the ’63 tribe. A few days later, we received an email from Mickey
Emmons,
also asking about Dooley. Mickey wrote that, at one of our Grand Reunions he heard that
Dooley was living in Mobile, Al. We immediately contacted Inspector Keen “Trace Of Lost Persons”
and set him on the trail. As a result, Bill was located, living in Elberta, Al.

 

 One lead, one Warrior. Often that’s all it takes. Now take a few minutes and glance at this list of
13 missing Warriors CLICK FOR LIST. It’s just 13 names. Surely some one has some info that
could be helpful in locating these missing Warriors. No matter how trivial, forward it to
 Smoke Signals. Info such as, names of the college they attended, names of siblings, close friends,
old
boy/girl friends, church attended. Now click on the list site and get to thinking. We want to locate
all 13 before the next Grand Reunion.

 

Nov. 27 - The Siren call of the High Seas beckons – Jo Ann and Larry Solomon left New Orleans

Oct. 27 – Thank Heaven, it’s over. The ’06-’07 football season has been a disappointment for the
Central Warriors, who finished 2-8. CLICK FOR THE STATS

 

Nov. 3 – Sputnik Dead!  Notorious ‘bad-guy “rassler’ Sputnik Monroe died today in Edgewater, Fl. at
the age of 78. Born Rocco Monroe DiGrazio in Dodge City, Ks., Monroe was a staple of the
Memphis studio-wrestling scene in the late ’50’s. At age 15, Johnny Dark Doughtery husband of
Cynthia Cowgil Doughtery, CHS’65 and a
SupperClub ‘Regular’, was the president of the Sputnik
Monroe fan club. Johnny told Smoke Signals that Sputnik treated him like a son and had spoken to
him a just week before he died.  

 

Nov. 6 – Vying for the City Championship! Once again, a mini-riot broke out at Craigmont High
School
sending 2 students to the hospital and 8 into custody. Three months ago, 24 students were
arrested after a riot at the school.

 

Nov. 7 – Tn. still a Red State!  Former Chattanooga mayor, Republican Bob Corker eked out a 3
percentage point victory over Democrat Harold Ford Jr. to become the only freshman Republican
senator elected this Nov. Their campaign was the most expensive, and some say the dirtiest, in Tn.
history.

 

Nov. 7 – Phil Krebbs asked to host class reunion at his Eureka Spgs. home. 63% of Eureka
Springs, Ar. voters approved a ballot initiative “de-emphasizing” the prosecution of the possession of
a small amount of marijuana. The change makes possession of a small amount of pot an offense
similar to a minor traffic violation, warranting the issuance of a citation.

 

Nov. 19 – Memphis, where your future’s just as good as your draw. According to the stats, the place
of good abode is fast becoming an armed camp, and the good-guys are arming themselves at a
record pace. CLICK FOR STORY

 

Nov. 21 – Meanwhile in the Shelby-Metro Div. Four students were arrested in two major altercations
at Cordova High School. Accounts differ on the number of students involved in the, but some
estimates range as high as 100. Sheriff deputies resorted to the use of pepper spray to disperse the
unruly mob. Thus far this school year there have been 47 arrests made at Cordova High.

                                  Speaking of flushing toilets, we were, weren’t’ we, the first American film to

                                  show an on-screen toilet flush was the 1960 Hitchcock thriller Psycho. The                                          

                                  scene showed Marion adding up the money then flushing  the paper down    
                                  the toilet. While we’re on the subject, contrary to the memory of those who
                                  swear that the b/w film showed Marion’s RED blood running down the drain,      
                                  the fx used for the blood was Bosco Chocolate Syrup. Marion’s white ‘57       
                                  Ford was the also sedan used by the Cleaver family in Leave It to Beaver.
