Gotta Be This or That

“People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself.
But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates.”

- Thomas Stephen Szasz

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 09/23/15:
 

“If it were possible to make your road very easy, you wouldn’t grow in strength. If you were always forgiven for every mistake without effort on your part, you would never receive the blessings of repentance. If everything were done for you, you wouldn’t learn how to work, or gain self-confidence, or acquire the power to change.”

- Richard G. Scott
(07 Nov 1928 -
22 Sept 2015)

    Thanks so much, Susan!


 


From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 09/24/17:

   From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of NC - 09/17/17:   

Had a great day today at church... Ordained  James Harty (Overhills HS, NC - '24 - of NC) as a Deacon, got to help set  Joseph Harty (Overhills HS, NC - '22 - of NC) apart as the Teachers Quorum President, and got to help set  Alexandria Huber (Cold Lake HS, Alberta / Pebble Hills HS, TX / Overhills HS, NC - '18 - of NC) apart as the Laurels Class President!

It was great to be able to have my dad     Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61 - of NC) be involved with these setting-aparts as well as helping ordain Joe and Jim to Teacher and Deacon specifically, as well as have my mom   Carol Buckley Harty ('65 - of NC) and aunt  Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59 - of NC) there to be present as well!

What a great blessing to finally have extended family nearby again!
 

   

   Thank you, Brent! It was a truly fabulous day!     

 
 


 


 From Jerry Blanchard ('62) of VA - 09/22/17:

Gotta Be This or That

Words and Music by Sunny Skylar (11 Oct 1913 – 02 Feb 2009)

Recorded by
Benny Goodman (30 May 1909 – 13 June 1986), 1945

If you ain't wrong, you're right
If it ain't day, it's night
If you ain't sure, you might
Gotta be this or that

If it ain't dry, it's wet
If you ain''t got, you get
If it ain't gross, it's net
Gotta be this or that

If it ain't sis, you can't miss
It's got to be your brother
Can't you see it's gotta be
One way or the other

If it ain't full, it's blank
If you don't spend, you bank
If it ain't Bing, it's Frank
Gotta be this or that
