Tom Wolf has a message for our class.....

Hi! If anyone would like to see my bluegrass band's (pre-recorded and first ever) TV performance of Weds. Dec. 20 here are the links. Way too much emphasis on me with the sub-titles, and our 'star' Kenyan fiddler wasn't available, but better than nothing for publicity's sake, I guess! https://www.kenyamoja.com/video/jklive-tom-wolf-and-bluegrass-music-band-part-1-citizen-tv-688201 https://www.kenyamoja.com/video/tom- wolf-bluegrass-kind-country-music-doesnt-use-electrical-instruments-no-solo-citizen-tv https://www.kenyamoja.com/video/jklive-tom-wolf-and-bluegrass-music-band-part-2-citizen-tv-688205

Teddy Golden has made us aware of our classmate Jan Berris being quoted in the NY Times today, November 14, 2023.

In the NYTimes today an article "Farewell to the U.S.-China Golden Age", our classmate Jan Berris is quoted about paragraph 8. She is Vice President of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations. Good for you Jan! Teddy

Hello to one and all. 

Now that the 62nd Reunion planning has started, many classmates are interested in having elementary school reunions.  We will post messages about them on this homepage as they come in.  Classmates will have an easy way of finding which elementary schools are planning and who to call or text or email.  Please use the "contact us" link in the left side column to make this website aware of any planning for elementary school reunions so we can add them to this homepage.

Here is a message from Dick Burstein about a Hampton reunion...

"We are considering the feasibility of having a Hampton School Class of 58 reunion in conjunction with the Mumford 62 reunion this coming summer. If you are planning on attending and are interested in a Hampton reunion, please let Dick Burstein know at rburstein@honigman.com and we will assess the interest in doing so."

And here is a message from David Haron about the Vernor reunion...

"I will host and am inviting all Vernor 1958 grads to a cocktail/casual pre-reunion Friday dinner at Franklin Hills Country Club. If you might be (non-binding) interested please email/text or call me at dharon@umich.edu or 248-762-7009."

Here is a message from Harriet (Bloom) Jacobson about a Bagley reunion...

Judy (Cutler) Simmons, Richard Nucian and I are planning a Bagley Reunion the weekend of the Mumford Reunion.  For more information, please contact Harriet at Harriet.jacobson@gmail.com or phone or text her at 248-770-8815.

There is a name for the blah you are feeling.  Its called...languishing. 

The article below even has an audio link, so you don't have to read it, you can just listen.

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/19/well/mind/covid-mental-health-languishing.html?searchResultPosition=1

Your reunion committee is languishing.  That is one of the reasons there have been no bombardments of emails to everyone over the year.  Yes, we certainly want a reunion in 2022, but we just haven't done thing one to bring it about.  After reading (rather, "listening") to the article, we are beginning to see why we are so unmotivated.  Please forgive us and enjoy the article.  One day the email bombardments will continue.

The article recommends perhaps looking forward to doing a daily crossword puzzle or binge watching a television series.  The NY Times has a great daily crossword.  And we have binge-watched WandaVision, Resident Alien, and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (also the original Star Trek ... over and over and over again).  So far, none of this has taken us out of our languishing. 

Any suggestions, please share them on our "Message Forum".

Be safe and stay well. ... and remember to wear your N95 mask.

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Classmates, 

Just received an email from Arnie Collens, class of '61, about one of his classmates, Larry Brilliant.  I found the article linked below to be informative and interesting. 

Here is what Arnie wrote.

Take a look at our home page, www.Mumford61.com.
If you’d like to share it with your class feel free. 
Communicated with Larry and he gave me the introduction telling me about learning social justice at Mumford.
  
The original Apple article.:
The Doctor Who Helped Defeat Smallpox Explains What's Coming
Epidemiologist Larry Brilliant, who warned of pandemic in 2006, says we can beat the novel coronavirus—but first, we need lots more testing.

Read in WIRED: https://apple.news/A_WNJJd9LTLaqTj1BKA303w
 
Hope all of you stay well and continue "hunkering down" at home.

Hello again from Don Surath,
My award winning sales book "Conquering Cold Calling Fear" (CCCF) has been revised as an E-book. It's available through my new website www.thecoldcallguy.com or amazon.com.

I've been teaching sales and sales management at the MBA level for the last few years and sold out CCCF's second printing. More importantly, my students are using these skills to reach decision makers and secure internships and even jobs!

While absentmindedly cruising the internet today, I came upon the following information about our high school  listed on wikipedia.    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mumford_High_School     

 


Subject: THE PHILOSOPHY OF AMBIGUITY 

 
FOR THOSE WHO LOVE THE PHILOSOPHY OF AMBIGUITY, AS WELL AS THE IDIOSYNCRASIES OF ENGLISH:

1. ONE TEQUILA, TWO TEQUILA, THREE TEQUILA ......  FLOOR.

2. ATHEISM IS A NON-PROPHET ORGANIZATION.

3. IF MAN EVOLVED FROM MONKEYS AND APES, WHY DO WE STILL HAVE MONKEYS AND APES?

4. THE MAIN REASON THAT SANTA IS SO JOLLY IS BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHERE ALL THE BAD GIRLS LIVE.

5. I WENT TO A BOOKSTORE AND ASKED THE SALESWOMAN, "WHERE'S THE SELF- HELP SECTION?"
SHE SAID IF SHE TOLD ME, IT WOULD DEFEAT THE PURPOSE.

6. WHAT IF THERE WERE NO HYPOTHETICAL QUESTIONS?

7. IF A DEAF CHILD SIGNS SWEAR WORDS, DOES HIS MOTHER WASH HIS HANDS WITH SOAP?

8. IF SOMEONE WITH MULTIPLE PERSONALITIES THREATENS TO KILL HIMSELF, IS IT CONSIDERED A HOSTAGE SITUATION?

9. IS THERE ANOTHER WORD FOR SYNONYM?

10. WHERE DO FOREST RANGERS GO TO "GET AWAY FROM IT ALL?"

11. WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU SEE AN ENDANGERED ANIMAL EATING AN ENDANGERED PLANT?

12. IF A PARSLEY FARMER IS SUED, CAN THEY GARNISH HIS WAGES?

13. WOULD A FLY WITHOUT WINGS BE CALLED A WALK?

14. WHY DO THEY LOCK GAS STATION BATHROOMS? ARE THEY AFRAID SOMEONE WILL BREAK-IN AND CLEAN THEM?

15. IF A TURTLE DOESN'T HAVE A SHELL, IS HE HOMELESS OR NAKED?

16. CAN VEGETARIANS EAT ANIMAL CRACKERS?

17. IF THE POLICE ARREST A MUTE, DO THEY TELL HIM HE HAS THE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT?

18. WHY DO THEY PUT BRAILLE ON THE DRIVE-THROUGH BANK MACHINES?

19. HOW DO THEY GET DEER TO CROSS THE ROAD ONLY AT THOSE YELLOW ROAD SIGNS?

20. WHAT WAS THE BEST THING BEFORE SLICED BREAD?

21. ONE NICE THING ABOUT EGOTISTS: THEY DON'T TALK ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE.

22. DOES THE LITTLE MERMAID WEAR AN ALGEBRA? (This one took me a minute)

23. DO INFANTS ENJOY INFANCY AS MUCH AS ADULTS ENJOY ADULTERY?

24. HOW IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE A CIVIL WAR?

25. IF ONE SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMER DROWNS, DO THE REST DROWN TOO?

26. IF YOU ATE BOTH PASTA AND ANTIPASTO, WOULD YOU STILL BE HUNGRY?

27. IF YOU TRY TO FAIL, AND SUCCEED, WHICH HAVE YOU  DONE?

28. WHOSE CRUEL IDEA WAS IT FOR THE WORD 'LISP' TO HAVE 'S' IN IT?

29. WHY ARE HEMORRHOIDS CALLED "HEMORRHOIDS" INSTEAD OF "ASSTEROIDS"?

30. WHY IS IT CALLED TOURIST SEASON IF WE CAN'T SHOOT AT THEM?

31. WHY IS THERE AN EXPIRATION DATE ON SOUR CREAM?

32. IF YOU SPIN AN ORIENTAL MAN IN A CIRCLE THREE TIMES, DOES HE BECOME DISORIENTED?

33. CAN AN ATHEIST GET INSURANCE AGAINST ACTS OF GOD?

34. WHY DO SHOPS HAVE SIGNS, 'GUIDE DOGS ONLY', THE DOGS CAN'T READ AND THEIR OWNERS ARE BLIND?

                                

We now have two Mumford classmates as mayors in Oakland County cities -- Deidre Holloway Waterman in Pontiac and Marian Barnes McClellan in Oak Park. Pretty cool!

Please feel free to share your thoughts (serious, amusing, informative......) with our class on the "Message Forum".

Sharon Gould Eaton has posted the following on our "Message Forum" for all our classmates to add their own 5 words describing their days at Mumford.....

***Let's have some *FUN*enlightened and get this forum "ROCK 'N' ROLLIN.."** 

Use FIVE WORDS or less to describe your days at MUMFORD.

(Please click on the "Message Forum", fifth item down on the left side of the screen to add your 5 words.)

 

Also, there are some terrible puns below.....couldn't stop myself.......hope you get a chuckle or two....

 

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.

Why did the turkey cross the road?
To show that he wasn't chicken.


Did you hear the one about the guest speaker who was introduced after a
Thanksgiving dinner?
The emcee said, "We have just enjoyed a turkey stuffed with sage. It
is now my pleasure to introduce a sage stuffed with turkey."

Did you hear about the X-rated turkey?
It's served with very little dressing.


Why did the Pilgrim kill the turkey?
Because he was in a fowl mood.

Did you hear about the conservative turkey?
It has two right wings.


Did you hear about the waiter who dropped a Thanksgiving dinner on the
floor and feared he had created an international incident?
It was the downfall of Turkey, the ruin of Greece, and the breaking up
of China.

Why did the man quit smoking cold turkey?
Because the feathers made him cough.

I've never taken an elevator to the basement floor, that's just beneath me.

I almost got my haircut then I thought I'd mullet over first.

Bridge tolls have increased significantly over a 5 year span.

When a neurologist relocates, does he change his mind?

Making up puns about the finest soil is the loess form of humor.

I wrote a novel about a fellow who had a small garden. It didn't have much of a plot.

To disparage the wind is disgusting.

When asked whether or not I was bilingual, I was about to say I knew sign language, but I figured it was sort of a mute point.

I don't find health-related puns funny anymore since I started suffering from an irony deficiency.

I like elevators they let me say jokes on every level.

Einstein developed a theory about space, and it was about time too.

There was a contest on a slippery rock slope. I won in a landslide.

New legislation forbids anyone but Santa's family dressing up as him, and you must be named in the related clauses.

I went to prom with a broken leg. During the slow dances my date could tell that I had a crutch on her.

At the petting zoo I saw a sheep scratching itself. Turns out it had fleece.

During his lifetime, the composer Bach was a noted success.

 

 

 

 

 

Interesting article on reunions, sent to us from our classmate, Judy Klein Frank.

Click here:  

 

We all check this site now and again for new information.  And so, not to disappoint, we will continue to post "stuff".  Here is a good one....We had a reunion meeting on September 10th.  There, we discussed our future reunion plans.  Hopefully, we will have a big reunion in five years.  We know that the Class of '61 had a picnic one year after their 50th, so, that is an option, too.  If you have any suggestions, we are open to hear them.  You can post them on the "Message Forum" on the left side of the page, or you can take the "Post Reunion Survey" and add your comments there.  Already 71 people have taken the survey.  We were hoping there would be more, but we are thankful it is not less !

N. Joyce Crenshaw has posted this announcement,

"Hi Everyone! Additional photos of the 1962 Class,

50th Reunion can be seen on my Facebook page.

You can help tag and name some faces."

Reunion day has come and gone.  We were thrilled and surprised that so many people decided to attend, even at the very last minute.  And so very happy that everyone had a really enjoyable experience.  Always, too short, but defintiely sweet.   While we are still enveloped in the warm glow of our reunion, we are actually considering another reunion in five years.  (Are we totally, off-the-wall, crazy?)  Of course, it is now just a glimmer of a thought....and may not really come to be, but we are putting it out there for your consideration.

Our website will remain up and running for ten years, so contacting your friends will stay super easy.  Just go to "classmate profiles" (the top item on the column at the left side of the page), when there, scroll down to find a person's name, click on it, and you will be able to send them a private message from that page.  Or you can send a message to the entire class through the third item down, called, "Message Forum"OR you can send a personal message through "Message Center", which is in the "Member Functions" portion of our website.

More to come after our respective naps...............!

Oh, one more thing...

If you have photos you would like to share, please click on the second item in the lefthand column titled, "Mumford High Photos"   Next, click on "Reunion Photos" and then on  "add photos" and post away !!!

Almost forgot....We now have a "Post Reunion Survey".  It is the 4th item down in the left side column.  Here is your opportunity to give us your opinions about our latest reunion and also, your opinion on up-coming reunions.  Please check it out !  Thanks !!!

 

Here is a news flash from Judy Wax Goldwasser....

"Mumford's grand opening, alumni welcome"......

http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2012308280054   and she also wrote:

"Did everyone see this in the Aug. 25th Free Press?  http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2012308250087
"You might want to check out the sites and dig into your pockets."

Registering to use our website is really easy.

Click on "Classmate Profiles", the top item in the column at the left.

So far, we have about 365 people registered to attend our reunion, August 25, 2012

We will update that number right here on our home page.    

The number of classmates attending, now on our "Classmates Profiles" page,  may not reflect spouses attending.   Either way, the above number is "more or less" generally accurate.   

Registering on this website, that would be a good thing, indeed.

 

Please remember to check out our "Message Forum". 

Lots of current information to be found there !

Can you top this???

Stories from high school?

Yes, I know that I need to write a wild and crazy memory from Mumford,  but to be quite honest, my memories of those times are pretty tame, but I certainly know someone out there has some amazing stories to share.  This a great place to do it.
