A special thanks to all veterans on this day  of remembrance.  All celebrations in Carlsbad took place Saturday, since the school system does not recognize veterans day here.  Ira Hays by Johnny Cash pretty much says what I feel about that.  I served during Vietnam, but was lucky to have spent my time ststeside,  where  I saw the results by being one of those who notified the next of kin of fallen soldiers.

I am so very sorry to learn the sad news of us loosing another fine member of our great class, Sanford Green. I will truely miss him. I had no idea he was in any kind of bad health. He seemed so vibrate.

I, too, was very shocked and saddened to hear of the passing of our friend and classmate, Sanford.  He will be missed!  My heart goes out to to his family and many friends.  I’m sure Sanford is hanging out with Turley and Ward, and has found a great golf course in the sky!

Saundra and Mettie I agree that it is so hard to see our friends passing. It is especially hard for families as we are so near the holidays. My thoughts and prayers are with the Green family.

Last night we ended up on the couch
trying to remember
all of the friends who had died so far,

and this morning I wrote them down
in alphabetical order
on the flip side of a shopping list
you had left on the kitchen table.

So many of them had been swept away
as if by a hand from the sky,
it was good to recall them,
I was thinking
under the cold lights of a supermarket
as I guided a cart with a wobbly wheel
up and down the long strident aisles.

I was on the lookout for blueberries,
English muffins, linguini, heavy cream,
light bulbs, apples, Canadian bacon,
and whatever else was on the list,
which I managed to keep grocery side up,

until I had passed through the electric doors,
where I stopped to realize,
as I turned the list over,
that I had forgotten Terry O’Shea
as well as the bananas and the bread.

It was pouring by then,
spilling, as they say in Ireland,
people splashing across the lot to their cars.
And that is when I set out,
walking slowly and precisely,
a soaking-wet man
bearing bags of groceries,
walking as if in a procession honoring the dead.

I felt I owed this to Terry,
who was such a strong painter,
for almost forgetting him
and to all the others who had formed
a circle around him on the screen in my head.

I was walking more slowly now
in the presence of the compassion
the dead were extending to a comrade,

plus I was in no hurry to return
to the kitchen, where I would have to tell you
all about Terry and the bananas and the bread.

While I was in the class of 1964; I knew many classmates from 1961 thru 1965....perhaps this from Tich Nhat Hanh will have some meaning.

Peace will come, it was promised to us from God.

Peace to his family and friends.

 

 

I am of the nature to grow old.
There is no way to escape growing old.

I am of the nature to have ill health.
There is no way to escape ill health.

I am of the nature to die.
There is no way to escape death.

All that is dear to me and everyone I love
are the nature to change.

There is no way to escape
being separated from them.

My actions are my only true belongings.
I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.

My actions are the ground upon which I stand.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Happy Turkey Day to all.

I am enjoying mine in Santa Fe, with plenty of wind and snow, at my youngest son and family's home.

I could have went with my middle son and family to Orlando.......Hummmm...... I may need to rethink my holiday planning in the future!!!frown

Anyway, enjoy the day, as we as Americans, still have plenty to be thankful for.

Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receivers the prize?  So run, that he may obtain.

Who are the guys in the picture holding the trophy?

Thank you, Paula.  You sent me right to it.  

Corinthians 9:24, KJV: "Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain."

The pucture is on 2 pages; 76 & 77. It's so dark I can't figure out who the guys are or what trophy they are holding.

The trophy could be either for football or very likely a track award.  Both sports practised in gray sweat shirts and sweat pants.  Since the word "run" is written 'three' times and "run in a race" is included in the bibical quote, it could be attributed to long distant 'runners' in Track.
