Let these triumphant victims be brought to the place where Christ is the
victim. But He
St. Ambrose of Milan
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
It's true. I really had to dig a bit to find the theme for today's Newsletter, which honors two second century Christian martyrs, the patron saints of Milan and of haymakers, and whose names are invoked for the discovery of thieves.

If you don't get what you want, you suffer; if you get what you don't
want, you suffer; even when you get exactly what you want, you still
suffer because you can't hold on to it forever. Your mind is your
predicament. It wants to be free of change. Free of pain, free of the
obligations of life and death. But change is law and no amount of
pretending will alter that reality.

From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - Most Popular Boy in the Class of 1990) of NC - 06/19/18, 12:43 AM:
day today, but a proud day. I was blessed to serve just short of 10
exact years. My body gave up quicker than I was hoping it would, and it
became apparent the good Lord had other paths He wanted me to walk.
Tomorrow my medical retirement begins. It is time for me hang up the
uniform, but I will never hang up my Oath to the Constitution and the
people it represents. Thank you to all who I was privileged to serve
with, all the great leaders who I reported to or reported to me - thank
you for all allowing me to be a part of your teams, and most of all,
thank you to all the Soldiers and your families who I was humbly honored
to be allowed to serve with you in various capacities. I will always
carry this time in the Army as one of the highlights in my life!
Thank you so much for everything, Brent! It goes without saying how proud I am of you, and how much I love you and your service to our country!
It ain't over 'til it's over.

If anyone has noticed, I gather pictures to send out yearly of
flowers. There may be other people who love flowers as much as I do,
but my guess is no one loves flowers any more than I do. lol
Hope you enjoy them!
Thank you, Shari!

From www.ajokeaday.com- 06/18/17:
|My wife and I
have very different body clocks. At sundown she is practically ready
for bed. I, meanwhile, am a night owl.
Recently, after a long, hard workday, I announced around 8 p.m. that I was exhausted and ready to hit the sack. Suddenly my wife nearly leapt into my arms.
"Oh, honey," she purred into my ear, "I just love it when you talk early to me."
