do we know when it will come back to us or to those with whom we are
associated. The reward may not come at the time, but in dividends later.
I believe we will never lose anything in life by giving service, by
making sacrifices, and doing the right thing.”

From Wayne Agee ('58) of FL - 09/13/15 - "the back nine":
So very true.....
Here's a story about our lives; how true it is. It is called "the back nine". Please read and enjoy and then do what the ending says. This is not one of those political passing on emails.
You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life...so, live for today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...and hope that they appreciate and love you for all the things that you have done for them in all the years past
"Life" is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after. Make it a fantastic one. LIVE IT WELL! ENJOY TODAY! DO SOMETHING FUN! BE HAPPY ! HAVE A GREAT DAY Remember, "It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver."
Thanks so much for this reminder, Wayne!
From Margaret Elmore Tolly ('58) of VA - 09/14/15:

If this is the case, then these 21 facts will give your mind a good workout. (Plus, you can impress others with this exotic knowledge.)
WOWZERS! Thanks, Dools!

Words and music by
Duke Ellington (29 Apr 1899 - 24 May 1974),

I never cared much for moonlit skies
I never wink back at fireflies
But now that the stars are in your eyes
I'm beginning to see the light
I never went in for afterglow
Or candlelight on the mistletoe
But now when you turn the lamp down low
I'm beginning to see the light
Used to ramble through the park
Shadowboxing in the dark
Then you came and caused a spark
That's a four-alarm fire now
I never made love by lantern-shine
I never saw rainbows in my wine
But now that your lips are burning mine
I'm beginning to see the light
