  Thank you, Joan!

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 06/10/19, 6:33 AM:

  The other day I put up a picture of the beautiful big doe who graciously mows the grass on the septic mound in rainy weather. Well, one of our cats, Murgatroyd, named appropriately, wishes he could make other plans. But then again, Old Murg wouldn't know what to do when she kicked the dickens out of him if he tried. Besides, he needs a diet anyway. But it is fun to watch how our creatures react, wild and domestic, when they see one another. The big doe is laughing inside, knowing the cat is inside left to his big dreams about a special dinner. In reality, though, he knows he's just a big marshmallow of a cat. Another rescue that found a good home.

     Thank you, Jimmy!


  From John Murden ('60) of VA - 06/10/18:

  INDEED! Thank you, John!

That Was the Week That Was

Theme song from That Was The Week That Was  (1962–63)

Music and Lyrics by Ron Grainer
 (11 Aug 1922 - 21 Feb 1981)

Sung by Millicent Martin (b. 08 June 1934)

That was the week that was,
It's over, let it go.
That was the week that was,
It started way above par,
Finished way below.
That was the week that was,
It's over, let it slide.
That was the week that was,
I took him at his word,
He took me for a ride....

That was the week that was,
It's over, let it go.
That was the week that was,
I've got a lot to say
But nothing left to show.

On Monday he gave me no beautiful things,
On Tuesday, no diamonds,
On Wednesday, no rings,
On Thursday he failed to add gold to my stack,
On Friday, no mink found its way to my back,
Saturday is known to be my best shopping day,
But I soon found out that he
Was giving nothing away.....

That was the week that was,
It's over, let it be.
That was the week that was,
It may have been all right for you,
But not for me.
That was the week that was,
It's over, let it go.
Oh, what a week that was
That was the week that was.....
