Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag
“Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love,
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
My mama (the late Maxine Frix Buckley - John Marshall HS - '25) (19 May 1908 - 15 Feb 1999) used to sing this old WWI song to my sister (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and me often to teach us a valuable lesson about bearing our burdens gracefully. It still comes readily to my mind whenever I need to refresh that thought.

|"Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit-Bag, and Smile, Smile, Smile" is the full name of a World War I marching song, published in 1915 in London. It was written by George Henry Powell under the pseudonym of "George Asaf", and set to music by his brother Felix Powell. A play presented by the National Theatre recounts how these music hall stars rescued the song from their rejects pile and re-scored it to win a wartime competition for a marching song. It became very popular, boosting British morale despite the horrors of that war. It was one of a large number of music hall songs aimed at maintaining morale, recruiting for the forces, or defending Britain's war aims|

The Green Thing
In the line at the store, the cashier told the older woman that she
should bring her own grocery bag because plastic bags weren't good for
the environment... The woman apologized to him and explained, "We didn't
have the green thing back in my day."
AMEN! Thanks again, Wayne!
