For you see, each day I love you more
Today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.”

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   I was unable to find a midi file for this song, but I do think it's lovely.

Now the rest of the world knows about us. There goes the neighborhood.

This small Arizona town was voted best in the Southwest

Just a two-hour drive from Phoenix in south central Arizona is a former copper mining hub, the so-called "heart of the Sonoran Desert," and the Southwest's newly crowned best small town, according to popular vote.

Situated nearly 15 miles north of the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument with a population of roughly 3,000, Ajo (Spanish for garlic) topped a pool of 20 other small towns (even a beach-front town in California) in USA Today's 10Best Reader's Choice Best Southwestern Small Town poll.

"A copper mining hub in the early 20th century, Ajo is today a picturesque getaway in the Sonoran Desert and the gateway to Organ Pipe Cactus and Sonoran Desert National Monuments," 10Best writes. "A large central plaza is surrounded by Spanish Colonial architecture, including a mission-style church, and the town's history is on display at the Ajo Historical Society Museum."

Two other Arizona small towns also made the list: Bisbee at No. 2 and Tubac at No. 9


The full top 10 list:

1. Ajo, Ariz.
2. Bisbee, Ariz.
3. Virginia City, Nev.
4. Cloudcroft, N.M.
5. Madrid, N.M.
6. Taos, N.M.
7. Creede, Colo.
8. Genoa, Nev.
9. Tubac, Ariz.
10. Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif.

   WOWZERS! Thank you, Cousin Jim!

 From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 05/02/17 - "How to Simulate Being in the Navy":

How to Simulate Being in the Navy

1. Buy a steel dumpster, paint it gray inside and out, and live in it for six months.

2. Run all the pipes and wires in your house exposed on the walls.

3. Repaint your entire house every month using gray paint.

4. Renovate your bathroom. Lower all showerheads to four and one-half feet off the deck.

5. When you take showers, make sure you turn off the water while you soap down.

6. On Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, turn water heater temperature up to 300 degrees. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, turn water heater off.

7. On Saturdays and Sundays tell your family they used too much water during the week, so no bathing will be allowed.

8. Put 5W-20 lube oil in your humidifier, instead of water, and set it on high.

9. Leave your lawn mower running in your living room 24 hours a day to maintain proper ambient noise level.

10. Once a month, COMPLETELY disassemble all your major appliances and electric garden tools, inspect them and then reassemble them. Do this every week with your lawnmower, weed whacker and other gasoline powered tools too.

11. Once a week blow compressed air up through your chimney, making sure the wind carries the soot across and onto your neighbor's house. Laugh at him when he curses you.

12. Raise the thresholds and lower the headers of your front and back doors, so that you either trip or bang your head every time you pass through them.

13. Raise your bed to within 6 inches of the ceiling, so you can't turn over without getting out and then getting back in.

14. Have a fluorescent lamp installed on the bottom of your coffee table and lie under it to read books.

15. Sleep on the shelf in your closet. Replace the closet door with a curtain. Have your spouse whip open the curtain about 4 hours after you go to sleep, shine a flashlight in your eyes, and say "Sorry, wrong rack."

16. Make each member your family qualify to operate each appliance in your house i.e., dishwasher operator, blender technician, stove vent fan specialist, etc.

17. Find the absolute dumbest guy in the neighborhood and make him your boss for the next two years.

18. Have a neighbor come over each day at 5 am, blow a whistle so loud Helen Keller could hear it, and shout "Reveille, reveille, all hands heave out."

19. Have your mother-in-law write down everything she's going to do the following day, then have her make you stand in your back yard at 6 A.M. while she reads it to you.

20. Empty all the garbage bins in your house and sweep the driveway four times a day, whether it needs it or not.

21. Have your neighbor collect all your mail for a month, read your magazines, and randomly lose every 5th item before delivering it to you.

22. Watch no TV except for movies played in the middle of the night. Have your family vote on which movie to watch, and then show a different one.

23. When your children are in bed, run into their room with a megaphone shouting that your home is under attack and ordering them to their battle stations.

24. Post a menu on the kitchen door informing your family that they are having steak for dinner. Then make them wait in line for an hour. When they finally get to the kitchen, tell them you are out of steak, but they can have dried ham or hot dogs. Repeat daily until they ignore the menu and just ask for hot dogs.

25. Get up every night around midnight and have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on stale bread.

26. Set your alarm clock to go off at random times during the night. At the alarm, jump up and dress as fast as you can, making sure to button your top shirt button and tuck your pants into your socks. Run out into the back yard and uncoil the garden hose and coil it back up.

27. Make coffee using eighteen scoops of budget priced coffee grounds per pot, and allow the pot to simmer for 5 hours before drinking.

28. When there is a thunderstorm in your area, get a wobbly rocking chair, sit in it and rock as hard as you can until you become nauseous.

29. Walk around your car for 4 hours checking the tire pressure every 15 minutes.

30. Have the paperboy give you a haircut with your hedge shears.

   WILD GIGGLES! Thanks, Billy - for everything!

From - 05/02/17:

A  career Army officer I once met was jumpmaster for his unit and was taking up a few novices for a drop. The flight was pretty rough, and after a while, the jumpmaster called off the jump because of high winds. As the plane headed back to base, and the pilot pulled off an unusually smooth landing, two of the neophytes got airsick.

"How come you could take that rough flight, but you couldn't handle the smooth landing?" asked the jumpmaster.

"Well, sir," one trainee explained, "We've always jumped out of planes. We've never actually landed before."

All Your Life

Written by Clara Henningsen and Brian Henningsen

Recorded by The Band Perry, 2011

 Would you walk to the edge of the ocean
Just to fill my jar with sand
Just in case I get the notion
To let it run through my hand
Let it run through my hand

Well, I don't want the whole world
The sun, the moon, and all their light
I just want to be the only girl
You love all your life
You love all your life

Would you catch a couple thousand fireflies
Yeah, put them in a lamp to light my world
All dressed up in a tux and bowtie
Hand deliver to a lonely girl
To a lonely lonely girl

Well, I don't want the whole world
The sun, the moon, and all their light
I just want to be the only girl
You love all your life
You love all your life

Lately I've been writing desperate love songs
Mostly I sing them to the walls,
You could be the center piece of my obsession
If you would notice me, I
Ohh yeah

Well I don't want the whole world
The sun, the moon, and all their light
I just want to be the only girl
You love all your life
You love all your life

You love all your life
