     If you do not receive your newsletter by email within 5 days of the 1st of the month, please notify Pat or Bill at the email address just above this. We will make very effort to advise you the prior month of any anticipated delay in the NEXT newsletter.
     Please send all content to be included in the newsletter to Bill Rumble (57) at BushyTales1 [@]
     Please send any notice of an email address change or a request to Unsubscribe from the newsletter to either:
A)    Bill Rumble (57) at BushyTales1 [@]
-or to-
B)    Pat Terpening (58) Owen at nemoamasa [@]

   Thanks to each of you who have taken the time to submit photos and articles for the newsletter. Please keep them coming! I can only use what I receive from you. Those of you with an eye for detail will notice that the first 2017 issue was Issue #1 of Volume #17. Gary ran the Issue and Volume numbers from the very first issue, which was March 2001. Each month I was going crazy ensuring that I had the correct Volume and Issue numbers. Now they will correspond with the year and month of the year. Some editor types will think this is heresy. I think it is practical.
   I am sending ONLY issues of “Bushy Tales” newsletters in .PDF format now.
   Another month keeps rolling around; so, Any thoughts you have about your time in England and Bushy Park, no matter how brief, send them along. Don’t worry about punctuation, or even grammar, Pat Owen is outstanding at sorting these things out. Any photos you have and would like to share, send them along, too. You can just take a picture of your old photo and email it to me using your smart phone. I can do the rest. No computer skill required, No scanning necessary.
   Anyone who wishes to see any/all back issues of “Bushy Tales”, can do so at the London Central High School, RAF Bushy Park web site, here: maintained by Bob Harrold (60). You can also look at and/or leave a message on the Guestbook provided, on the link on the left side of the homepage.
   Note: Patricia Owen ('60) email, chs1958 [@], distributes the monthly 'Bushy Tales' newsletter for the editor, Bill Rumble. If you would like to be on distribution or have address changes, etc., please contact her at that email address. To unsubscribe from this newsletter, simply send me an email with the subject line showing your class year and the word “unsubscribe” to BushyTales1 [dot]
   Blessings and best wishes to all, Bill Rumble (57), November 2017, Editor BushyTales1 dot

This is email message [excerpt] was sent by Gary on 30Jul16 with the July '16 issue of “Bushy Tales" - "The May 2016 issue of “Bushy Tales” presents a few tributes to Gerald "Gary" Earl Schroeder (14Nov36-26Mar16.) He was truly amazing. His compassion and generosity to others is beyond what many of us can comprehend. As you can clearly see in the attached tribute by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary folks with whom he worked, he was not your average Coast Guard Auxiliary member! Gary was all in with everything he did. Those of you who are moved to write a tribute to Gary, please do so and send it along. The tribute edition of 'Bushy Tales' dedicated to Gary Schroeder is at: May_2016_issue.pdf (.pdf)" -- Your Acting Editor, Bill Rumble.
