Last Day of Sukkot

“The booth is designed to teach us not to put our trust in the
size or strength or improvements of a house, nor in the help
of any man, even the lord of the land, but in the Creator,
for He alone is mighty, His promises alone are sure.”

- Samuel Aboab
(1610 - 22 Aug 1694)

Psalm 118: 24 - 25:

24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
25 Save now, I beseech thee, O Lord: O Lord, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.

Leviticus 23: 33 - 41:

33 ¶ And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
34 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord.
35 On the first day shall be an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein.
36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.
37 These are the feasts of the Lord, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the Lord, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:
38 Beside the sabbaths of the Lord, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the Lord.
39 Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the Lord seven days: on the first day shall be a sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.
40 And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days.
41 And ye shall keep it a feast unto the Lord seven days in the year. It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month.

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 08/05/10 - "Vote for Grace (REPEATED)":
 

  This is my daughter Laura's dog in a contest to be on the cover of a bag of dog food.

Vote every day for Grace. Thanks.

   Oh, Laura is your daughter, Norris! Well, that makes it all the more important! When I tried to vote for Grace again today, I noticed the site was trying to pull a switcheroo on me. It tried to persuade me to vote for the wrong Grace!  OH, NO!

http://www.adogslife.net/photo_gallery.php?pg=&limit=40&sort=tnid&type=tnap&field=dog_name&keyword=grace#14296

and #3 in pet of the year: http://www.adogslife.net/photo_gallery_contests.php?t=2 

  WOWZERONI!!! That's fabulous, Norris! 

   Vote early, vote often (or at least cast your allotted daily vote) - and don't drop the ball now!

Hi Carol,

I would think that if anyone has any pictures or info on Shackelford Dodge that individual would be

That it is, Fran! I sent Fred a note, asking for his assistance. Thanks, Lady!

  From My Friend, Judy Bundy Bowermaster (Litchfield HS, IL - '59) of IL - 09/14/10 - "Pink Heart" (#12 in a Series of 12):

Love the babies! Thanks! Give this heart to everyone you DON'T want to lose in 2010 including me. 

 

"Be kinder than necessary because everyone
you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
"

 

The pursuit of happiness is the chase of a lifetime! It is never too late
to become what I might have been.

Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and wrong. Sometimes we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late. I don't want to let that happen so I'm gonna tie you to my heart so I never lose you.  Send it to some balloons that you think have flown away forever. You may be surprised to see it return. Send this heart to everybody you like.

Send this heart to everybody that has touched your life in a positive way. Thank you for being in my life!!!

   Thanks so much, Judy; these have been delightful!

Sisu Vesimchu

Sisu Vesimchu B'simchat Torah

Ut'nu kavod laTorah

Ki tov sachra mikol sechora

Mipaz umip'ninim yekara

Nagil venasis b'zot haTorah

Ki hi lanu oz ve'ora

Rejoice and be merry on Simchat Torah

And give honor to the Torah!

For her reward is greater than any business,

More valuable than jewels.

We shall rejoice and be merry on Simchat Torah,

For it is for us strength and light.
