Finally got to open a bottle of Mary's awesome wine while on my first ever cruise.
On the 6th Day of a 7 day trip we decided to celebrate only to find a cork, not a cap. (shoulda known better).
What follows is what you do when you don't have a corkscrew and are too cheap to pay the shipboard $5.00 corkage fee.
* Go to the cafe and get a knife & fork.
* Go back to your room & pry one tine out with the knife bend it out 90 degrees
* Use the little hole in your wife's nail clippers to curl the tip end of the tine.
* Next I used a larger hole in a key to form a screw twist.
* Crank it in as far as it will go and pull.
I've got pics and will post them as soon as I find them. Thanks again Mary.

That is too funny Lyle. I still have my bottle of Mary's wine sitting on back of our bar and I still use my Saegertown '64 wine glasses.  Thanks Mary and John Rogan. Today is October 1 and we finally have gorgeous fall weather in TX, lovin it right Lyle?  Hope everyone at Saegertown '64 has a wonderful fall and mild winter. Thinking of all of you. Love S

  "Like".  The wine was delicious and we've been back for more!

We're headed to FL this week for older daughter's outdoor wedding,

and hoping for great weather!!  Happy Fall to you all!

Awesome Dot, enjoy the FL weather. Loved Mary's wine too, that is so neat that Conneat Lake has a winery.  Speaking of the Lake, we went to the CL Park while in PA this summer for family reunion.  Jerry, our two sons and their wives rode the Blue Streak, Jerry rode in last car and he said he caught air.  I think they are original cars, good Heavens. I valued the remainder of my life too much to ride that thing.

I still have 3 bottles that we snuck out and somehow got down here to sunny FL. I haven't had a drink since the millenium so it will sit for a while longer.:P

John Rogan:  Hi John and Nancy.  Hope you folks are safe from Hurricane Matthew.

Lyle Forsythe:  Creative! Hope you enjoyed the wine and your cruise.

Sandra Brown(Cykoski):  Sorry it took so long to respond (winery, grandkids, etc).  Okay to save the wine bottles as souvenirs, but sweet wines don't improve with age. Enjoy the weather in Texas.

Dorothy Fargo(Reed):  Glad you like the wine. Enjoy the wedding. Hope you avoid Hurricane Matthew!

David Lesher:  Hope you missed Hurricane Matthew.  The bottles of wine are sweet; therefore, they won't last. Nice for souvenirs.

WELL, RAY, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU MIGHT LIVE REAL CLOSE TO A WALMART.(THEY SEEM TO HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT THERE'S THANKSGIVING TOO).

THAT NOT WITHSTANDING, I WISH YOU AND ALL OF OUR CLASSMATES THE BEST OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON. 

I'M THRILLED THAT SO MANY OF US HAVE COME TO EMBRACE OUR LORD. IT'S MORE IMPORTANT NOW THAN EVER FOR US TO PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER. IT WORKED FOR YOU FOR SURE.

PUT IN A WORD FOR ME AS I WILL BE HAVING A HEART VALVE REPLACED SOON. I'M GOING TODAY TO MEET THE SURGEON.

AS SANDY AND WOULD SAY, " ALL Y'ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY SEASON."

GOD BLESS

Lyle, I will be praying for you now and through surgery, you will do great I just know it and you are right we need the Lord now more than ever but he has always been a part of my life so I have been very blessed in that regard.

Sandy.

Hi All my Saegertown 64 Classmates,

I am not sure this will be posted right but here goes.  Jerry and I would like to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas...  what a joyous time of year.

On another sort of down note, I was diagnosed with Acute Leukemia about two weeks ago. I will be going back to MD Anderson to start treatments tomorrow and will have 5 consecutive days of Chemo plus mega does of Vitamin D (new study).  They have come out with some "new drugs expermental drugs" for leukemis and I am on that experiment list.  Not sure but I may glow at night, just kidding. I wanted to let you know this and ask for your prayers for me and Lyle as well.  This was quite a surprise since I had none of the symptoms and still do not, like tired, etc.  I am still gowing strong for now.  I did have some weight loss but thought nothing of it since I am never still.  Wanted to tell you because i found out this affects more older people than it does children.  MDA has an East and West wing just for us Seniors .  I am blessed because my Dr. is the head of the MDA leukemia department and it is the best hospital in the world for cancer.  A little hard to get to for us but it is worth the hassle I hope.

Thanks for listening, I wanted my friends to know.  Please keep me and especially my family in your prayers if you will and I will post when I can.  Love you guys, Always, S.

tDear Sandy and Lyle,

     I wish you the best of luck with your medical problems, procedures and treatments.  Sandy,

you have always glowed- day or night without any radiation or chemicals needed.  Lyle, 

heart issues take on a special emotional  trauma I think (not that leukemia doesn't) but being

tied to our heads in a special way, means 🎀🎼🎧  ""You Gotta Have Heart" to focus all your

attention and energies towards repair and healing.   You're in the best hands here on earth,

and heart problems are scarey, but advances in medicine surely  help make your outcomes  positive.

I have a great nephew who was born with only a 2 chambered heart and after many surgeries it is

Hard to hold him down. 

I'll keep you both in my mind with positive vibrations!

Judy Smith-Shumaker

Hi Sandy,  I hope this note finds you full of optimisim and strength to battle your issues.  We all have you in our prayers and feel that a  full recovery may be sooner than you think.  God Bless you and your family...John

Sandra Brown (Cykoski)

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers John, they are very much appreciated.  Head up and positive attitude to take this little bump in the road head on.  I wish everyone a very Merry and Joyous Christmas keeping the Lord at the front and center.  Love you guys...  S.

JUDy Smith (Shumaker)

Hi Sandy,  I've been thinking and praying for you too.  I have quite a list of  friends, relatives, and  acquaintances who have survived similar illnesses which might have taken them 5 years ago and longer but each year, more advances are made and they have survived.  Amazing cures happen every day!  One guy is a former trucker who has had  a lung removed, another is David's brother who was treated at Roswell with consultation from MD Anderson.  He had had a stroke 2 years before which disabled him and then a very rare type of tumor in his sinus.  He was given a 50/50 chance and that was 5-6 years ago and he is doing good with no more issues.  Keeping you in my prayers.  Judy

Thank you Judy, much appreciate your prayers and thoughts...  I have had 5 chemo treatments daily and am in the waiting stage right now with lots of bloodwork, etc.  I like to hear the success stories and happy that all are doing well.  I have complete confidence that I will beat this one and yes I have a great Dr. and MDA cannot get any better than that.  God is in charge so I am taking it a day at a time.  Jerry is a trooper.  Thanks Love S
