Age…Ages’ on

If you , “Don’t Do It Now” – When do you think  you will? Have you a dream?  Did you ,log your dream – your personal inspirations, of what you hope to have accomplished,  by 25, or make your  mark, by 35?

You need a tad more  time,  you say you started Life, with complications? Go on –Name them Now? You let  ‘self’ –  “Give-in”.   You really were not,  hungry enough,, to whip yourself into gear  –  A Winner never Quits  –  Everything is  hard  on first try!

Try a  ‘D’ word  – Determined, put that in your ‘back-bone‘,  with self-Discipline  – save all  the Frivolous  wants on the back-burner, if you get them now , you are carrying too much baggage to move  swiftly,  forward.

As you move in Life,– when young – you have all the  vim, vigor, and power you need. Then you move into  the full and filled  area, everything you planted is coming up roses. Ah-ha, Brother, it’s beginning  to ache and hurt – slowing down – just don’t feel too enthusiastic, any more?

Help some youngster coming up the  the Ranks.  Your helping Hand –  Worth a Million.

Let’s get together at Sunset Park in Florissant, MO., date and time, – just let me know, and I’ll post the information, as received. Any and all Alumni, Relatives, and Friends; This will be a good time to share old photos, memorabilia,, stories, and happenings from times gone by, till the present.

Any day and or  time –  this summer, when we can get the largest crowd to show up – –  and have lots of fun and games – just like you remember!!!    “WOW”  Sounds terrific!  Be curious! Like “Katy the kitchen cat!  Have I got a ‘great tail’, to tell!

A Veteran Speaks…

My son’s thoughts, as he was listening to  Taps,  on  the  radio, this Memorial Day.   Lee,  remembers  when  as a young Boy Scout, in his  Scout uniform,  that he and his Troop   went to Jefferson Barracks St.Louis, MO., to put American Flags, on the grave  of each Fallen Solider.

The above being done,and not knowing  “THEN” what,  the future  would hold,  that in just a few short years, he would be wearing a Navy Uniform,  aboard the, CV61 USS Ranger – The Flag Ship of the Admiral of the 7th Fleet.

Lee said,” Brings me to earlier this week, getting out  our  American Flag, to run up the pole for, Memorial Day, because,  I know I am a Proud American, and I Love My Country”.

91.5 FM radio

Did you hear the Complete Story program this weekend, Dick Bott, produced for Memorial Day?  You must go online and listen to the whole program. The information and history of Decoration Day,  the original  name, then changed to include all War Heroes,  combining all services and Unknown Heroes, now celebrated as Memorial Day, the last Monday of May.

If you are not as old as me, you may not have heard,  “Red Skelton”  recite the “Pledge of Allegiance,”  – this is necessary for us today,   to  remember  God,   He   must  be acknowledged by  all   of us – Americans!!!

“America”-   was sung by “Charlie Rich” –  and when you hear him perform and sing “America” –  you will want  only him, to always sing “America”. It was “Top of  the  Charts!” And Dick Bott  had as the  ‘send off ‘ for his half-hour program, “Sandi Patty” –  singing the, “Star Spangled Banner” – which gave me  ‘goose bumps’!!!   It was the best  rendition  I’ve heard,   and his whole program should win an award!!!

Remember the reason for the holiday, and give  –   “Thanks to  Almighty Yahweh –  for all those  who serve – especially those who had to give their LIVES!”

Memorial Weekend

When we , “Grands“, were, “Young Parents“, and had a small child or two, we felt bogged down and over-worked,  sometimes wishing to be free of responsibilities. Wanting time to pass faster, we  were only going to miss the ‘Good Times’.

But, we are on a ‘Journey‘, that has a ‘one-way pass‘, for each of us  – No Refunds –  Stops on the way, accidents and set-backs, ‘ steady as she goes’,   are you holding on,  for  “Fun Times?

Memorial Day, gives us a 3-day weekend to enjoy with all our Family, young, old, and in between. Give Thanks, to all who made the ultimate gift, so that we remain together as a Family, enjoying what our  Love Ones, fought for.

Do like we did  in the Young day of Ol’Gramps, celebrate with family in the backyard, -games, food, and replay the ‘memory game’, who can remember the best?

82nd Airborne

If someone in their formative years, continually, seeks out different  and unusual ways  of making an entrance, would we be amiss to discover his Life’s Vocation? Today, as fast as , Living Life 101, is going for each of us, we are not directing our children into the  Field of Study, that would take them on and into a career  more in-tune with their , ‘natural abilities’.

I believe, we all come with,  strong intuitive powers,  but by the age of seven we have had so much early correction, we are more, logical minded. In Tom, he is highly intelligent, with strong reasoning and remembering ability.

So, with all his, high flying Dives on Broadway, (small joke), it is good to note that Tom did well with the 82nd Airborne Division’s, 504th Infantry,  Fort Bragg, N.C.  ‘Three Cheers’,  for all the Service Men and Women, this Memorial Day!!!     “God Bless America”
