"OHS'59 65th REUNION"

 

(From Joyce McCarty Greenlee, OHS'59, 4-10-19)

"Heads up! It is official. OHS Class of 1959 will have their 60th reunion in Odessa at the Elegante on September 21, 2019. We will also be meeting impromptu on September 20 at the Shrimpboat. Registration forms for the Saturday meetings will be forthcoming. I will also be talking to the Shrimpboat folks about Friday night. As in the past couple of years, the Friday night meal will not be a part of the "formal" reunion, but just as much fun. PLAN now to be a part. We never know when our last reunion will be. And we also know that the best laid plans of man don't always work out as planned. However, as one of our classmates has said, "If the good Lord's willing and the creek don't rise, I will be there!"

HOW DO COURT REPORTERS KEEP STRAIGHT FACES?

(Note: None of these comments were made by our "OHS Class of 1958" Attorneys!)
 
These are from a book called "Disorder in the Courts" and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down by and published by court reporters who had the torment of trying to  "stay calm and expressionless" while the exchanges were taking place.
 
ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
WITNESS: He said, 'Where am I, Cathy?'
ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
WITNESS: My name is Susan!
_______________________________
ATTORNEY: What gear were you in at the moment of the impact?
WITNESS: Gucci sweats and Reeboks.
____________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Are you sexually active?
WITNESS: No, I just lie there.
____________________________________________
ATTORNEY: What is your date of birth?
WITNESS: July 18th.
ATTORNEY: What year?
WITNESS: Every year.
_____________________________________
ATTORNEY: How old is your son, the one living with you?
WITNESS: Thirty-eight or thirty-five, I can't remember which.
ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?
WITNESS: Forty-five years.
_________________________________
ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
WITNESS: Yes.
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
WITNESS: I forget..
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?
___________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?
____________________________________
 
ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?
WITNESS: He's 20, much like your IQ.
___________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
WITNESS: Are you shitting me?
_________________________________________
ATTORNEY: So the date of conception (of the baby) was August 8th?
WITNESS: Yes.
ATTORNEY: And what were you doing at that time?
WITNESS: Getting laid
____________________________________________
 
ATTORNEY: She had three children , right?
WITNESS: Yes.
ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
WITNESS: None.
ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?
WITNESS: Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?
____________________________________________
ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
WITNESS: By death..
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
WITNESS: Take a guess.
___________________________________________
 
ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard
ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?
WITNESS: Unless the Circus was in town I'm going with male.
_____________________________________
ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.
______________________________________
ATTORNEY: Doctor , how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
WITNESS: All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.
_________________________________________
ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
WITNESS: Oral...
_________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 PM
ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS: If not, he was by the time I finished.
____________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
WITNESS: Are you qualified to ask that question?
____________________________________
And last:
 
ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
WITNESS: No..
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law.

Ramblings of a Retired Mind!

  • I was thinking about how a status symbol of today is one of those cell phones that everyone has clipped onto their belt or purse. I can't afford one. So, I'm wearing my garage door opener.
  • I also made a cover for my hearing aid and now I have what they call blue teeth, I think.
  • You know, I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people didn't like me anyway.
  • I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing husbands on beer cans!
  • I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is 'when you still have something on the ball, but you are just too tired to bounce it.'
  • I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age, and call it 'Pumping Rust'.
  • I've gotten that dreaded furniture disease. That's when your chest is falling into your drawers!
  • When people see a cat's litter box, they always say, 'Oh, have you got a cat?  Just once I want to say, 'No, it's for company!'
  • Employment application blanks always ask who is to be notified in case of an emergency. I think you should write, 'A Good Doctor'!
  • I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then, it dawned on me. They were cramming for their finals.
  • As for me, I'm just hoping God grades on the curve.
 
Enjoy Your Days & Love Your Life, Because Life is a Journey to be Savored.
