Stonewall Jackson’s 191st Birthday

My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time
for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when
it may overtake me. ... That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave.”

- Thomas Jonathan Jackson
(21 Jan 1824 - 10 May 1863)

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/20/15:

“Everybody in this life has their challenges and difficulties. That is part of our mortal test. The reason for some of these trials cannot be readily understood except on the basis of faith and hope because there is often a larger purpose which we do not always understand. Peace comes through hope.”

- James E. Faust
(31 July 1920 - 10 Aug 2007)

    Thanks so much, Susan!

He was a great example of what Honor, duty, standing up for principled beliefs and ultimately, being willing to die to protect family, friends and nation... And sealing his life with that very sacrifice, at the greatest moment of his professional career...

Thank you for being you, Brother Jackson!

BONUS GREY CROCHET PATTERNS:

http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LW2903.pdf - Kim Guzman's Grey Splendor Vest - "The sparkle in this crocheted vest lends it to being worn for the office with a tailored blouse or for evening with a lower cut knit top. The longer silhouette is flattering to all body types." - Actually, as much as I like it, I happen to know this would look hideous on me at the moment!

http://www.thelittlebazaar.com/item/2756/ - Grey Crocheted Pineapples Pattern Cotton Long Skirt - "The crochet lace is in grey in this stylish, contemporary long skirt. The crocheted lace has a quality inner cotton matching lining. The fringed bottom style makes this an exciting and new addition to the so in-fashion long skirts..." - This isn't a pattern at all, but a ready-made skirt retailing for $39.95, but it was just too fabulous not to share with y'all!


BONUS - STONEWALL JACKSON INN'S (HARRISONBURG, VA) RECIPES:

http://www.stonewalljacksoninn.com/recipes/roasted-hash/ - Stonewall Jackson’s Roasted Hash - “I generally use this as a side dish to Eggs Benedict – Stonewall Style. They go together like Batman & Robin, complementing each other with contrasting seasoning, flavors, and heartiness. The hash should be made the night before, cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.”- Dr. Wayne Engel, Innkeeper

http://www.stonewalljacksoninn.com/recipes/eggs-benedict/ - Wayne’s Eggs Benedict ~ Stonewall Style - “This is our most requested Signature “Breakfast to Remember” and my personal favorite. The version here is easy to make, yet elegant and healthy. I serve it with a side of our unique Stonewall Roasted Hash.”- Dr. Wayne Engel, Innkeeper


FINALLY:
From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 01/20/14:
 
A couple was dressed and ready to go out for the evening. They phoned for a cab, turned on a night light, covered their pet parakeet, and put the cat out in the back yard.

The taxi arrived, and they opened the front door to leave. Suddenly the cat they put out scooted back into the house. They didn't want the cat shut in there because she always tried to eat the bird. The wife went out to the taxi while the husband went back inside. The cat ran upstairs, with the man in hot pursuit.

The wife didn't want the driver to know the house would be empty. She explained to the taxi driver that her husband would be out soon. "He's just going upstairs to say goodbye to my mother."

A few minutes later the husband got into the cab.

"Sorry I took so long," he said, as they drove away. "Stupid hag was hiding under the bed. Had to poke her with a coat hanger to get her to come out! Then I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked. I hauled her fat butt downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!

The cab driver hit a parked car.

Dixie

[From the Richmond Dispatch, March 19, 1893.]
 Dan Emmett its Author and New York the Place of Its Production.


I wish I was in the land of cotton,
old times there are not forgotten,
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
In Dixie land where I was born in, early on a frosty mornin',
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.

Chorus:
Then I wish I was in Dixie, hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie land I'll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie,
Away, away, away down south in Dixie,
Away, away, away down south in Dixie.

Old Missus marry Will de Weaber, Will-yum was a gay deceaber,
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
But when he put his arm around her,
smiled as fierce as a forty pounder.
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land. (Chorus)

Dars buckwheat cakes an' ingen batter, makes you fat or a little fatter,
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
Den hoe it down and scratch your grabble to Dixie's land
I'm bound to travel,
Look away, look away, look away Dixie land. (Chorus)
