THIS DAY IN 1970:
|May 28, 1970 - Actor Glenn Quinn was born Glenn Martin Christopher Francis Quinn in Dublin, Ireland. He died as the result of a heroin overdose at a friend's home in North Hollywood, California on 03 Dec 2002. He was 32.|
From My Friend, Susan, of NC -05/27/15:
becomes a living and an attractive virtue when it is regarded not only
as a willingness to die manfully, but also as a determination to live
decently. A moral coward is one who is afraid to do what he thinks is
right because others will disapprove or laugh. Remember that all men
have their fears, but those who face their fears with dignity have
courage as well.”
Thomas S. Monson,
Thanks so much, Susan!
|Thank you, Joan!|
From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 05/28/20, @ 5:15 AM:
I just want to say Good Morning on this
Thursday morning to all my Typhoon friends.
I've had a tough couple of days following some much more difficult than expected skin cancer surgery, but coming back slowly and just want you to know how blessed I am to be feeling better. It's going to be a slow process but God has been good to me. Skin cancer is no fun, especially when it is more than just a routine case but I know that I am just paying for the sins of my youth in the sun. Glorious days they were.
I just want to wish you a wonderful morning for every morning we awaken is a glorious day. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, be blessed this day. And God bless you all. Here's a little sunshine for your day in picture form.
Thank you, Jimmy!

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 05/02/20, 11:51 AM - "Lovely Lavender" (#11 in a Series of 13):
One thing for sure is the quarantine has not only made us miss people, but also the beauty the world has to offer... I hope you enjoy these lovely pictures. I have been sending out a few of my favorite things...
"The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less."
- Joseph B. Wirthlin
Thank you, Shari!
From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 05/14/20, 7:57 AM - "~'~ I Love Pink ~'~" (#11 in a Series of 20):
As we slowly venture back into the world, let's hope a new gentleness becomes our theme. Let's all be gentle with ourselves and others, human and animal, as well as to the earth. This has been a trauma for so many. This brings me to another one of my favorite things, the softness of Pink.
“There is no energy greater than the power of Love. Once I finally embraced this concept, I realized that the path to Ascension always begins with the heart, and the color Pink.”
― Eleyne-Mari Sharp,
Thank you, Shari!

At a girl's college dormitory, dates were permitted only on Saturday night.
One young man showed up on a Tuesday evening, explaining to an older
woman in the lobby of the dorm that it was imperative he see a certain
young lady immediately.
