From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 08/29/14 - "The Black Telephone":
was quite young, my father had one of the first telephones in our
neighborhood. I remember the polished, old case fastened to the wall. The
shiny receiver hung on the side of the box. I was too little to reach
the telephone, but used to listen with fascination when my mother talked
'Information, please,' I said into the mouthpiece just above my
head. A click or two and a small clear voice spoke into my ear.
'Can you open the icebox?' she asked.
'Information,' said in the now familiar voice.
'How do I spell fix?' I asked.
Thank you, Paul!
From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of LA - 08/29/14 - "RE: The Black Telephone":
I'm sure you have sent this selection to me before, but I read the story again, as it is a nice story. In the story it said, "Whose life have you touched today?
Today I have the day off for Labor Day weekend - "a training holiday" as we say in the Army. At any rate, I wanted to organize some of Jacob's Boy Scout records (he just completed his Board of Review for the rank of Life Scout last Wednesday...!). Anyway, I'm getting his records all squared away as he prepares to work on his Eagle Scout rank. Yesterday his mom sent all his merit badges, merit badge cards, and even some items he had when he was a brand new Cub Scout.
I read that line, "Whose life have you touched today?" and it made me think of that practice of saving Boy Scout Merit Badge cards and where I learned that practice. I, of course, was taught to do that by you, as you did the same thing for me. I still have those cards that represent memories - some with your name on them as the counselor - like the three Citizenship merit badges - and some with others' names. When I think on those cards they all represent seemingly simply, but somehow vast, wonderful memories, like being taught how to splice rope at S-Bar-F Scout Ranch in Missouri, or working on leather belt in Handicraft (that I made as a gift for you) at Camp Brady Saunders in Virginia, or even attending the Lincoln Pilgrimage in Illinois.
I could go on about those great Boy Scout memories that you set the stage to provide to me, but the words just don't quite seem sufficient to capture my thoughts and feelings on the subject. By sorting his Merit Badge cards, his past ranks and badges, I realized that by doing the organization for Jacob in an effort to help him out and make his life better and more enjoyable, that your efforts to do the same for me still have that impact of "touching my life."
I wish I was there to say it in person, but I wanted you to know of my thanks and appreciation for touching my life - again. Scouting is just one of the examples of how you have done this for me.
Thank you so very much, Dad...
Your grateful and humbled son...
Thank you so much for sharing this, Brent!
From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC - 08/29/14 - "Major to Minor Key":
|Have you seen these? So
WOWZERS! Thank you for showing me these videos, Adrienne! I've always loved the mournful sound of the minor keys, and Chase has such a beautiful, unusual voice!
From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 08/29/14 - "Women, ya got to love 'em":
|Happy Labor Day
Oh, these are soooo bad .... but will go forward.
Some old...some new...all true !
Women, ya got to love
From Jimmy Hines ('64) of Northern VA - 08/29/14 - "Christmas in Heaven":
THIS IS SO TRUE.
SOMETIMES I FEEL MY MOM AND DAD AT CHRISTMAS, SOMETIMES IT'S JUST A LITTLE BREEZE I FEEL WHEN THEY WALK IN.
Thank you, Jimmy!
From My Friend, Nicole, of UT - 08/29/14 - "http://www.chef-in-training.com/2011/12/homemade-bread-bowls/ - Homemade Bread Bowls":
|"The colder weather has arrived, which for our family, means a lot of warm soups! To me, there is nothing more filling and comforting on a cold day than a nice bowl of soup. What’s the best way to eat soup?…In a bread bowl of course! I LOVE bread bowls! This is a family recipe that we use and I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does."|
2½ cups warm water
1 Tbsp. yeast
⅓ cup sugar
⅓ cup oil
1 Tbsp. salt
6-7 cups white all purpose flour
Combine warm water, yeast and sugar and let sit for 10 minutes or until yeast is bubbly.
Add oil, salt, and 1½ cups of flour to the yeast mixture. Mix on low speed (if in a bread mixer).
Begin adding the rest of the flour 1 cup at a time until 5 cups total. Mix on high speed and continue to add the flour ½ cup at a time until the dough begins to clean the sides of the bowl and pulls away toward the middle. Do not add more than 7 cups of flour. Knead for 6 minutes.
Divide dough into 6 pieces. Make round balls. Place on large cookie sheet and let rise until doubled in size.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes.
Rub tops of bread bowls with butter.
Cut top out and dig out bread, leaving a hollowed out bread bowl.
Fill with your favorite cream soup or chowder.
We usually put the bread from the center on the plate beside the bowl and dip it into the soup. You can also eat the bowl when you are all done! YUM!
OOH, YUMMY! Thanks, Nicole!
From Paul's Niece, Celesta, of MO - 08/29/14:

But Not for Me
(06 Dec 1896 – 17 Aug 1983)
for Girl Crazy (1930)
Old Man Sunshine -- listen, you!
Never tell me Dreams Come True!
Just try it --
And I'll start a riot.
Beatrice Fairfax -- don't you dare
Ever tell me he will care;
It's the Final Curtain.
I never want to hear
From any cheer -
Who tell you Fate
Supplies a Mate --
It's all bananas!
They're writing songs of love,
But not for me;
A lucky star's above,
But not for me.
With Love to Lead the Way,
I've found more Clouds of Grey
Than any Russian play
I was a fool to fall
And Get That Way;
Heigh ho! Alas! and al-
Although I can't dismiss
The mem'ry of his kiss --
I guess he's not for me.
He's knocking on a door,
But not for me;
He'll plan a two by four,
But not for me.
I know that Love's a Game;
I'm puzzled, just the same --
Was I the Moth or Flam...?
I'm all at sea.
It all began so well,
But what an end!
This is the time a Fell --
Er Needs a Friend;
When ev'ry happy plot
Ends with the marriage knot --
and there's no knot for me.
