From Charlie Hilling ('56) of FL - 02/04/10 - "Hello from Florida":

From Bobby Turpin ('58) of VA - 02/04/10 - "RE: Freddie McDowell ('56) of ID":
Carol, thank you for sharing this with me also.
Thank you, Bobby! I think this made a great day for many of us!
|Just like the wave, life too is a set changing circumstances. Change is inevitable, how we adapt to it, is what really matters. Just like the beach, where these waves come in to crash and waste itself, its energy, the sand retains its pristine beauty, we too must remain unaffected by what is happening around us, and accept the change. Flow with the tide, as the saying goes, for in trying to stem the flow of change, we will get badgered and beaten. Resist, and you lose your peace of mind and happiness!|
Thank you, Shari!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 02/04/10 - "What Am I":
Your best friend or greatest
enemy, I am your greatest companion. I am your greatest helper or your heaviest
burden. I will push you onwards or drag you down to failure. I am completely at
Half the things you do, you might as well turn over to me and I'll do them quickly and correctly. I'm easily managed, but you must be firm with me. Show me exactly how you want something done and, after a few lessons, I'll do it automatically. I'm the servant of all great men and, alas, of all failures as well.
Those who are great, I have made great. Those who are failures, I have made failures. I work with the precision of a scientist and the passion of a patriot. You many run me for profit or run me for ruin; it makes no difference to me. Take me, train me, be firm with me and I will put the world at your feet. But be easy with me and I'll destroy you.
Who am I?
Thanks again, Shari!
From Mike White ('67) of VA - 02/03/10 - "Seniors (#2 in a Series of 19)":
For anyone age
appropriate…that means almost everyone
Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding you too.
Don't laugh.....it is all true...these are the perks of reaching 60 and heading towards 70 and older!
