“Although no sculptured marble should rise to their memory,
nor engraved stone bear record of their deeds, yet will their
remembrance be as lasting as the land they honored.”

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This theme repeats (or tries to repeat, when the systems are working...) every year:

That blood of heroes never dies.
These are truly beautiful! Thanks, Lady!

Herb Hice of MI, who
served in the Pacific Theater
during WWII - 05/27/07 - "Dear Carol, MOTHER OF THE YEAR - 'You'll Love it !'":
This has been around before BUT, It's so adorable, I am sending it around again for your enjoyment. I hope this short note finds you in good spirits.
Your Friend, Herbie
this is adorable.
MOTHER OF THE YEAR
In a zoo in California, a mother tiger gave birth to a rare
set of triplet tiger cubs. Unfortunately, due to complications in the pregnancy,
the cubs were born prematurely and due to their tiny size, they died shortly
The mother tiger after recovering from the delivery, suddenly started to decline in health, although physically she was fine. The veterinarians felt that the loss of her litter had caused the tigress to fall into a depression. The doctors decided that if the tigress could surrogate another mother's cubs, perhaps she would improve.
After checking with many other zoos across the country, the depressing news was that there were no tiger cubs of the right age to introduce to the mourning mother. The veterinarians decided to try something that had never been tried in a zoo environment. Sometimes a mother of one species will take on the care of a different species. The only orphans" that could be found quickly, were a litter of weanling pigs. The zoo keepers and vets wrapped the piglets in tiger skin and placed the babies around the mother tiger. Would they become cubs or pork chops?
Take a look...you won't believe your eyes!!

OK, in my zealousness I overlooked the point about not using the
However, when I first read Joe's (Madagan - '57 - of FL) question, in my mind I kept hearing Arlo singing 27. I was only two off.
Well, Captain, I think the point is that you recalled the song at all without first checking online. YOU WIN!!! I am mightily impressed - as usual!

So to all of you, have a safe and wonderful Memorial Day – you deserve it!

Day is done...Gone
From the lake...
From the hills...
From the sky.
All is well...Safely rest
God is nigh.
Fading light....Dims the sight
And a star....Gems the sky....Gleaming bright
From afar....Drawing nigh
Falls the night.
