           A SALUTE TO 

        OUR VETERANS

This page is dedicated to our classmates and all Americans who have served
in the armed forces and to those who have lost their lives in the service of our country. 
They are the chosen;
we are the blessed.

What is a veteran? 
Just look around.
Right where you're standing,
He fought for that ground.

 A Vet is a person who answered the call,   
Who went into war, and gave it his all.
He defined a way of life that we all love,
but much preferred peace, like the way of a dove.
He asked not the reason, as he stood in the trench.
He faltered not once in the muck and the stench.
As soldiers in legions, they stood side by side.
They knew some would fall, as many more died.
They whispered their prayers in a helmet of sweat.

Shells bursting above wouldn't let them forget.
For many the battles never will end,
Now they are civilians, and find they can't blend.
Some are disabled, and some are disturbed.
After coming home from hell,
They find they've been curbed.
A veteran is special, to be not denied.
He put it up front, he need never hide.
 




 

 

 

 

All gave some.  Some gave all.

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, Who has given us the right to vote.
It is the VETERAN who salutes the Flag,
It is the VETERAN who serves under the Flag,
ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM.
We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
God Bless them all ! ! !

Makes you proud to be an AMERICAN ! ! ! !

 

Regardless of what your plans are this weekend;
we hope it will be a safe and happy one for all of you!

 

 

SALUTE TO VETERANS

Story goes that Otis Redding wrote this
song in Sausalito, looking out at San
Francisco Bay.  The whistle at the end
isn't his; when he tried that during
recording, they realized they needed
a "better whistler," so a known jazz
musician was hired to insert the iconic
whistle.

Just because you've seen it before doesn't
mean it's not still funny.

Thanks a bunch, Barry!

KNOW THE SYMPTOMS!

(Thank God there's a name for this disorder!)

Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder

This is how it manifests:

I decide to water my garden.
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,

I look over at my car & decide it needs washing.    


As I start toward the garage,
I notice mail on the porch that I
brought up from the mailbox earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys on the table,
put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, 
and notice that the garbage can is full.


So I decide to put the bills back on the
table & take out the garbage first....

But then I think,   
Since I'm going to be near the mailbox
when I take out the garbage anyway,
I may as well pay the bills first.


I take my checkbook off the table
and see that there's only one check left.
My extra checks are in my desk in the study.
So I go inside to my desk where
I find the can of Diet Coke I
'd been drinking.
                            

I'm going to look for my checks,
but first I need to put the Diet Coke aside
so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

 

The Diet Coke is getting warm, and I
decide to put it in the fridge to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Diet Coke,
A vase of flowers on the counter
catches my eye--- they need water.

                                                         

I put the Diet Coke on the counter &
discover my reading glasses that I've
been searching for all morning.
I decide I'd better put them back on my desk,
but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter,
Fill a container with water & suddenly spot the tv remote.
Someone left it on the kitchen table.

                                                     

But I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table.
So I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs,
But first I'll water the flowers.


I pour some water in the vase,
But quite a bit of it spills on the floor.
So I set the remote back on the table,
Get some towels & wipe up the spill.

                                                       

Then I head down the hall trying to
Remember what I was planning to do.

 

At the end of the day:
The car isn't washed.
The bills aren't paid.
There is a warm can of Diet Coke 
sitting on the counter.
The flowers don't have enough water.
There is still only one check in my checkbook.
I can't find the remote.
I can't find my glasses,
And I don't remember what I did with
the car keys.

Then when I try to figure out why nothing
got done today,
I'm really baffled because I know I was
busy all day,
And I'm really tired.

 

I realize this is a serious problem, and
I'll try to get some help for it;
but first I'll check my email.

 

Don't laugh ~ If this isn't you yet,
your day is coming!

Mostly songs from the 50s, but since
our class spans the 50s & 60s,
these might be fun to listen to. 

 

 

 


  ONE WORLD OBSERVATORY
Take a trip through time and history on your way to the top.
(from Gerald Watson, MHS '60) 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember the seats in the Lynn Movie Theater?

Looking to waste several minutes of your life?  If
you're looking for something to drink a cup of coffee by, this
video will give you a few seconds of each of the top 100 songs of the 60s
(according to the guy who put it together).  Nice reminiscing.
