From My Friend, Susan's Friend, Katie, of NC - 02/13/15:

“I recognize that, on occasion, some of our most fervent prayers may seem to go unanswered. We wonder, ‘Why?’ I know that feeling! I know the fears and tears of such moments. But I also know that our prayers are never ignored. Our faith is never unappreciated. I know that an all-wise Heavenly Father’s perspective is much broader than is ours. While we know of our mortal problems and pain, He knows of our immortal progress and potential. If we pray to know His will and submit ourselves to it with patience and courage, heavenly healing can take place in His own way and time.”

- Russell M. Nelson
(b. 09 Sept 1924)

  From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 02/11/16 - "The Magic Bank Account":

The Magic Bank Account

Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest:
Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use.
However, this prize has rules:

The set of rules:

1. Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.

2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.

3. You may only spend it.

4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another $86,400 for that day.

5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time it can say, “Game Over!" It can close the account and you will not receive a new one.

What would you personally do?

You would buy anything and everything you wanted right? Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for. Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself, right?

You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?


Shocked ???


Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. We just can't seem to see it.

The PRIZE is *TIME*.
1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of life.

2. And when we go to sleep at night, any remaining time is NOT credited to us.

3. What we haven't used up that day is forever lost.

4. Yesterday is forever gone.

5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING...

SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?

Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars. Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think.

So take care of yourself, be happy, and enjoy life!

Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day.

Start “spending”....



   Thank you for this reminder, Wayne!

From John Patterson ('59) of TN - 02/12/16 - "Winter":

  Perhaps it's my old age, or whatever, but I'm getting sick and tired of Winter - - it's going down to 11 degrees tonight, some more snow predicted soon, and no golfing in sight for weeks.

Perhaps we should all practice some Louisiana style voodoo and kill off old man Winter.

     OH, YES! Thank you, John! I'll certainly second that!


From The Walking Dead - 02/13/16 - "The Walking Dead Returns":

            The Walking Dead will return tomorrow, February 14 at 9:00/8:00 on AMC!

   Be there for Valentine's Day love.

From - 02/11/16:

Little Kelvin's darkest day was when he was asked by his mathematics teacher to solve a problem on the board. The question was asking for the answer to 2 + 3.

He knew he couldn't solve that so he glanced towards his bright friend for help. His friend willing to help but fearing to speak out loud, showed him his palm as a silent indication to the answer.

So little Kelvin drew the palm.

Written and recorded by Sam Cooke, 1961
(22 Jan 1931 – 11 Dec 1964)

Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Now I don't mean to bother you but I'm in a mess
There's danger of me losing all of my happiness
For I love a girl who doesn't know I exist
And this you can fix


Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Cupid with your arrow make a love storm for me
I promise I will lover her until eternity
I know between the two of us her heart we can steal
Help me if you will

Cupid draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Cupid please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Cupid, don't you hear me
Calling you
I need you
Help me
