Class reunion, plus History.

Class Reunion

60th High School Reunion
He was a widower and she a widow.

They had known each other for a number of years being high school classmates and having attended class reunions in the past without fail.

This 60th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles.

They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high.

The widower throwing admiring glances across the table. The widow smiling coyly back at him.

Finally, he picked up courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"

After about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered,

"Yes,..... yes I will!"

The evening ended on a happy note for the widower. But the next morning he was troubled.

Did she say “Yes” or did she say “No?”

He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank.

He remembered asking the question but for the life of him could not recall her response. With fear and trepidation he picked up the phone and called her.

First, he explained that he couldn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the past evening.
As he gained a little more courage he then enquired of her. "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say “Yes” or did you say “No?”

"Why you silly man, I said ‘Yes. Yes I will.’ And I meant it with all my heart."

The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.

Then she continued. "And I am so glad you called because I couldn't remember who asked me!”
The Queen Bless her is 88 years of age today. Also 'Nifty Nev' Former Premier of NSW Neville Wran Passed away on this day 21-4-2014. I once beat Nev with a cheaper business quote back in the past, but we never met.

Korea 21st April 1952. serving on HMS CEYLON. At Twelve Noon, Flags were hoisted from fore to aft in dress overall. A signal from the masthead read, 'With the compliments of her majesty the Queen, on her twenty sixth birthday. Eight bells were rung, followed by a six inch gun turret firing a twenty one gun salute of 50kilo or 1cwt high explosive shells into a North Korean port. Later a less formal bombardment was carried out.
The other Highlight was the that the six hundred plus crew were all down with dysentery. we were at the mercy of the enemy had they known it.
The cure I remember was Sulphur 'G' Tablets four at a time, bitova bummer.
