Dear Classreport Users: We are one of the premier social networking websites dating back to 2003. We are a small, family-owned and operated business with less than 15 staff, yet we freely host over a million class websites. Classreport holds a special place in the hearts of our users (See Bravos). We are funded solely through voluntary contributions. Despite our small size, we have the same costs as any other site: servers, security, software, and staff. So we are asking for your support. If everyone reading this gives $15, our fundraiser will be over in one day. If Classreport is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online and ad-free for another year. Thank you for your support. Click here to help out now.

"What A Wonderful World"

(as sung by Louis Armstrong)

I see trees of green,
red roses too.
I see them bloom,
for me and you.
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue,
And clouds of white.
The bright blessed day,
The dark sacred night.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky.
Are also on the faces,
Of people going by,
I see friends shaking hands.
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying,
"I love you".

I hear babies cry,
I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more,
Than I'll ever know.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Yes, I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Oh yeah.


Remember,
as we get older....we become CLASSIC PATRIOTS!


May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
And may you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
And may you stay forever young.

.......'Forever Young', Bob Dylan

There's a new world somewhere They call The Promised Land
And I'll be there some day If you will hold my hand
I still need you there beside me No matter what I do
For I know I'll never find another you
There is always someone For each of us they say
And you'll be my someone For ever and a day
I could search the whole world over Until my life is through
But I know I'll never find another you
It's a long, long journey So stay by my side
. When I walk through the storm You'll be my guide
If they gave me a fortune My treasure would be small
I could lose it all tomorrow And never mind at all
But if I should lose your love, dear I don't know what I'll do
For I know I'll never find another you

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Ruth Chitwood Fletcher


I married a year out of high school, had 2 children, was an at home mom, and loved every minute of it. In 1982 we moved to Friendswood, Texas just south of Houston. And then after 22 years of marriage I found myself divorced. So at age 41 I decided to go back to college while working full time at United Way. December 1999 I graduated from University of Houston Clear Lake with a BS in accounting. My goal was to graduate before I turned 50 and I graduated just after my 49th birthday. What a celebration! I was recruited (can you believe it….an older person was recruited!) by Duke Energy and worked in the accounting department preparing the annual and quarterly filings for both the SEC and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for their natural gas business. In January 2007 Duke spun off the natural gas business and a new company was formed, Spectra Energy. In the new structure I was offered a position in risk management managing Spectra’s captive (self-insured) insurance company. I accepted the position and gladly walked away from the long working hours of accounting. I really love what I do.
My daughter, Michelle, is married and lives in San Antonio. She graduated from Texas A&M and taught high school English until she started her family. She and her husband, Britt, have 3 children, Luke (15), Rachel (13), and Hannah (5). My son, Richard, is married and lives in Searcy, Arkansas. He graduated from University of Arkansas with a degree in Landscape Architecture. He and his wife, Kristin, have 2 boys, Jackson (7) and James (3).
Fifteen years after my divorce, I remarried in January 2006 and we live in Nassau Bay (still in the Houston area). We met at church in the “older” singles group. We have so much fun together. He is so tolerant of me…..you can only imagine after living alone for 15 years I was very set in my ways and extremely independent Together we have 10 grandchildren! We love traveling and spending as much time as possible with the grandkids. We are both looking forward to retirement in the next few years.

Was it only yesterday we talked on the phone or crammed for a test?

Was it only yesterday we heard of your passing?

And we cried.
