From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 04/13/14 - "How to Stay Young":
We all need to read this one over and over - until it becomes part of who we are!
HOW TO STAY YOUNG
1. Try everything twice.
On one woman's tombstone she said she wanted this epitaph:
"Tried everything twice. Loved it both times!"
2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.
(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)
3. Keep learning:
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever...
Never let the brain get idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.'
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud.
Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh,
spend lots and lots of time with HIM /HER.
6.. The tears happen:
Endure, grieve, and move on
The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourselves.
LIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love:
whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever..
Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9. Don't take guilt trips..
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next city, county,
to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
I love you, my special friend.
11. Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second chance.
Remember! Lost time is gone forever and can never be found.
Be kinder than is necessary,
From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 03/08/14 - "Hand Paintings? (#15 in a series of 16)":
|COOL BEANS! Thanks, Jimmy!|
From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 03/28/14 - "Who Knew? (#12 in a series of 25)":
|WOWZERS-YOWZERS! Thanks, Billy!|
Eight men had been at a mental hospital for a period of time and were being tested to find out how they are progressing in order for them to leave the institution.
The doctor in charge took them all into a room and with a ball pen drew a door on the wall and asked each one of the patients to try to open the door for him as part of the test.
Seven of them rushed out and attempted to open the door on the wall. The doctor was disappointed with the results, but nevertheless called on the last one who was still sitting down, and asked him why he didn’t stand up and try to open the door with the others.
The eighth man replied, “Because I was holding the key to the door.”

Yerushalaim Shel Zahav
Avir harim tsalul kayayin

Ach bevo'i hayom lashir lach

Jerusalem of Gold
The air of the mountains is as clear as wine
And the fragrance of the pine trees
Is lifted upon the evening breeze
With the ringing of the bells
And in the deep sleep of the tree and the stone
Held captive in a dream
The city which sits alone
And in her heart, a wall
Jerusalem of gold
And of copper and of light
For all of your songs
I am the harp
How the water cisterns have dried up
The city square is empty
Nobody goes up to the Temple Mount
In the Old City
And in the caves of the rocks
And no one goes down to the Dead Sea
Upon the Jericho Road
Jerusalem of gold...
Although I come to sing to you today
And to tie crowns upon you
I am less than the youngest of your sons
And the last of the sweet singers
For your name singes the lips
Like the kiss of the serpent
If I forget thee, oh Jerusalem
She is completely golden
Jerusalem of gold...
We have returned to the water cisterns
To the marketplace and the square
A shofar calls out on the Temple Mount
In the Old City
And in the caves in the rocks
A thousand suns shine forth
And again we will go down to the Dead Sea
Upon the Jericho Road
Jerusalem of gold...
