Cancellation of August 1st Get-together at Chicken Oil for the SFA Class of ‘63
After much thought and anguish, we have decided to CANCEL the “Just Because” Reunion, scheduled for August 1st at Chicken Oil in Bryan. As everyone knows, we are living in uncertain times right now and because of social distancing, mandatory masks, and COVID-19 – we feel that it is best to POSTPONE our mini-reunion until we can meet together, hug one another, and all be able to sit and visit together at eating tables less than 6 feet apart. Although we are very disappointed, we feel that it is necessary to think of everyone’s health and safety – especially at our age! (we are not trying to insult anyone………but we know how old you are!) We will be monitoring the COVID-19 virus situation and will let you know when we can safely meet together again. Meanwhile, below is our NEW way to stay in touch:
SFA Class of ‘63 Classmate Connection
Just because our class is not able to be together PHYSICALLY, it does NOT mean that we can’t stay CONNECTED. We will do that via this website! We will not let a pandemic keep us from CONNECTING in new and different ways. All of us want to know WHAT you are doing and HOW you are doing in 2020. Please think about this and write a paragraph about YOU……..hobbies, trips, grandchildren, jobs, significant other, ANYTHING that will describe to our classmates what your life is like now. After you write this descriptive paragraph, you can email it to me (KEITH GERMAN HALSELL) at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post it to the home page of our SFA website under the title CLASSMATE CONNECTION. And, if you would like to include one or more recent photos, I will attempt to post them on the website with your “classmate connection” information. We hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy and we hope to hear from you soon.
Quarantine Levity.........something to think about
***Tomorrow is the National Homeschool Tornado Drill. Lock your kids in the basement until you give the all clear. You’re welcome!
***I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm just to talk to someone. He asked me what I was wearing.
***2019: Stay away from negative people. 2020: Stay away from positive people.
***The world has turned upside down. Old folks are sneaking out of the house, and their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors!
***You think it’s bad now? In 20 years our country will be run by people homeschooled by day drinkers…
***This virus has done what no woman had been able to do…cancel all sports, shut down all bars, and keep men at home!!!
***Do not call the police on suspicious people in your neighborhood! Those are your neighbors without makeup and hair extensions!
***Since we can’t eat out, now’s the perfect time to eat better, get fit, and stay healthy. We’re quarantined! Who are we trying to impress? We have snacks, we have sweatpants – I say we use them!
***Day 7 at home and the dog is looking at me like, “See? This is why I chew the furniture!”
***Does anyone know if we can take showers yet or should we just keep washing our hands???
***I never thought the comment “I wouldn’t touch him/her with a six foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are!
***Me: Alexa what’s the weather this weekend?
Alexa: It doesn’t matter – you’re not going anywhere.
***Can everyone please just follow the government instructions so we can knock out this coronavirus and be done?! I feel like a kindergartner who keeps losing more recess time because one or two kids can’t follow directions.
***I swear my fridge just said “what the hell do you want now?”
***When this is over…what meeting do I attend first…Weight Watchers or AA?
***Quarantine has turned us into dogs. We roam the house all day looking for food. We are told “no” if we get too close to strangers. And we get really excited about car rides.
HOW TO TELL YOU ARE AN ADULT:

10. In filling out an application, where it says, "In case of an emergency, notify..." I answered "a doctor."

Middle OLD age is just walking around
all day muttering things like………….
“What was I going to say?”
“What did I come in here for?”
“Did I already take my pill?”
How did I get this bruise?”
Why am I sore?”
“Where did I leave my phone?”
“Who moved my
water wine glass?”
“Did the dryer shrink these pants?”
“That’s it. Diet starts tomorrow.”
“$2.99 a pound for apples? The nerve!”
I could’ve sworn that was my password.”
“Who in the world is calling me at 9:00 p.m.?”
One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is
such a nice change from being young.
