- L. Tom Perry
(b. 05 Aug 1922 - 30 May 2015)

   Thanks so much, Katie!


From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 03/14/17 - "Marvelous video - a little bit of West Texas":

Some pretty country....

Wyman Meinzer is the photographer. He once lived in the old jail in Benjamin, Texas.

The photo of the coiled rattlesnake appeared on the cover of a wildlife magazine in the 80s. He said there were times he crawled a long way on his belly to get a good shot of a wild animal. It was a pleasure to see so many living deer with such amazing antlers. These old fellows have been around a long time to grow antlers like that.

The music is by Doug Smith. Doug is from Petersburg, Texas. Doug plays by ear - he cannot read music, but has many CDs. A pickup accident left Doug paralyzed, but fortunately he has learned to play again. Most of the pictures were taken in West Texas in the rolling plains (Caprock to Seymour), the Fork, 6666, and Waggoner Ranches. There are some scenes in Palo Duro Canyon.

Take a few moments and view and listen. I doubt if you'll ever see such fantastic use of music set to amazing animal and landscape photography. The changes in the tempo perfectly compliment the scenery. It is quite simply a beautiful portrayal of the state of Texas.

   WOWZERS! Thank you, Wayne!


 From Jerry Blanchard ('62) of VA - 03/13/17:

    Thanks, Jerry! I'll seek comfort in this thought!

BONUS IRISH CROCHET PATTERNS:

http://www.favecrafts.com/Crochet/Crochet-Skirt-from-Naturally-Caron# - Doris Chan's Light Green Crochet Skirt - "This light green crochet skirt is calling your name. This is the perfect free crochet pattern you should be making for the hot summer season. The yarn is nice and light so it will keep you cool." - Well, it's not calling MY name, but that's probably only because I don't bear much resemblance to this adorable young model (I think that might be Doris Chan herself)! 

http://www.favecrafts.com/St-Patricks-Day/A-Cute-Shamrock-and-Leprechaun - Petra Monaco's Shamrock and Leprechaun - "Using a free crochet St. Patrick's day pattern is great for this holiday. Get in the spirit and become Irish for a day. This leprechaun and shamrock are great to hang from the rear view mirror of your car. You might also want to sew it to a bag or piece of clothing for a nice embellishment."

http://strngbn.tripod.com/clovere.html -
Adrienne R. Congdon's 4 Leaf Clover Doily - "Show your Irish side by decorating your home with some four leaf clover doilies. This is such a neat pattern. It makes for an excellent gift for an Irish friend."


BONUS IRISH RECIPES:

http://www.mrfood.com/One-Pots/Skillet-Sausage-n-Cabbage-5132//ml/1 - Skillet Sausage 'n' Cabbage - "What could be better on a cold winter night than a skillet supper bursting with the hearty flavors of smoked sausage and cabbage? Oh, it's so comforting!"

http://www.mrfood.com/Potatoes-Rice/Irish-Potatoes-6067//ml/1 - Irish Potatoes - "Okay, okay, no self-respecting St. Patrick's Day corned beef would be complete without the crunch and taste of cabbage! Well, we've just made it partners with our mashed potatoes, so now we've got an old favorite that's traditionally called Champs, but it's got a modern twist!"

http://www.mrfood.com/Beef/St-Patricks-Day-Special-1096//ml/1 - St. Patrick's Day Special - "Heard of the blue plate special? Well, this meal is the St. Patrick's Day special. And we have it every year in Chicago 'cause we spend every St. Patrick's Day there, marching in the parade and enjoying the great food and festivities!"


FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 03/15/17:

My cooking has always been the target of family jokes. One evening, as I prepared dinner a bit too quickly, the kitchen filled with smoke and the smoke detector went off. Although both of my children had received fire-safety training at school, they did not respond to the alarm.

Annoyed, I stormed through the house in search of them. I found them in the bathroom, washing their hands. Over the loud buzzing of the smoke alarm, I asked them to identify the sound.

"It’s the smoke detector," they replied in unison.

"Do you know what that sound means?" I demanded.

"Sure," my oldest replied. "Dinner’s ready."

Oh Bridgit O’Malley, you left my heart shaken
With a hopeless desolation, I’d have you to know
It’s the wonders of admiration your quiet face has taken
And your beauty will haunt me wherever I go.

The white moon above the pale sands, the pale stars above the thorn tree
Are cold beside my darling, but no purer than she
I gaze upon the cold moon till the stars drown in the warm sea
And the bright eyes of my darling are never on me.

My Sunday it is weary, my Sunday it is grey now
My heart is a cold thing, my heart is a stone
All joy is dead within me, my life has gone away now
For another has taken my love for his own.

The day it is approaching when we were to be married
And it’s rather I would die than live only to grieve
Oh meet me, my Darling, e’er the sun sets o’er the barley
And I’ll meet you there on the road to Drumslieve.

Oh Bridgit O’Malley, you’ve left my heart shaken
With a hopeless desolation, I’d have you to know
It’s the wonders of admiration your quiet face has taken
And your beauty will haunt me wherever I go.
