Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?

“When you remember me, it means that you have carried something of who I am
with you, that I have left some mark of who I am on who you are. It means that you
can summon me back to your mind even though countless years and miles may stand
between us. It means that if we meet again, you will know me.”

Frederick Buechner
(b. 11 July 1926)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Does Ray Charles ever sing to you, or is it just me? There's no midi today, so just let him sing to you, too.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

  From Brenda Amos Williams ('62) of VA to the Class of 1962 - 11/07/14:

Hi Classmates,

Did you have a great time at the Birthday Bash? Many asked to begin getting together more often.

One of our classmates loved the Birthday Bash so much that she decided that having dinner every 2 months would be super nice. No decorations, no worrying whether you can make it or not, no promises, just show up if you can. Just a good socializing time.

The starting date is Thursday, December 4th at 6:30 at Angelo's on J. Clyde Morris Boulevard.

This first time we will need to let
  Fran Heath Scott know if you are coming or not. After that you will either come or not. It will be another fun evening.
You can order from regular menu and do your own tips.

If this sounds like something you would like to do, please contact Fran at 757-813-0446 or email: heathbarlc66@yahoo.com.

Sincerely,

Brenda and Fran

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjnmICxvoVY - I Knew I Loved You - Savage Garden

   Ah, love at first sight! Thank you, Adrienne! As you know,              my mama's (19 May 1908 - 15 Feb 1999)     parents and  maternal grandparents both had that identical experience! The fella took one look at the gal and said to himself, "There's the girl I'm going to marry!"


    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX AND   From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 11/04/14:

This is for u:)

Read till the end! I sent an angel to watch over you last night, but it came back and asked, "Why?" The angel said, "Angels don't watch over angels!"

Twenty angels are in your world. Ten are sleeping, nine of them are playing and one is reading this message. God has seen you struggling with some things and God says it is over. A blessing is coming your way.

If you believe in God send this message to 14 friends including me; if I don't get it back I guess I'm not one of them.

Not joking. Pass this message on. Please don't ignore it; you are being tested and God is going to fix two big things tonight in your favor.

If you believe in God, drop everything and pass it on. TOMORROW WILL BE THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE...

WHOEVER SENT THIS TO YOU MUST CARE ABOUT YOU!

   Thank you, Glenn and Joyce! We just passed it on to over 650 of our closest friends, because everyone could certainly use some choice blessings right now!


    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 11/07/14 - "BUDWEISER Commercials":

BUDWEISER Commercials

I had forgotten how wonderful these Budweiser commercials are and how they just make you feel good. Enjoy!

love this....
 
sounds just like something my mother would have said when she was with us....  lol
 
Grandma's Invitation

Dear Family,

I'm not dead yet. Thanksgiving is still important to me. If being in my Last Will and Testament is important to you, then you might consider being with me for my favorite holiday. Dinner is at 2:00. Not 2:15. Not 2:05. Two. Arrive late and you get what's left over.

Last year, that moron Marshall fried a turkey in one of those contraptions and practically burned the deck off the house. This year, the only peanut oil used to make the meal will be from the secret scoop of peanut butter I add to the carrot soup.

Robert, your last new wife was an idiot. You don't arrive at someone's house on Thanksgiving needing to use the oven and the stove. Honest to God, I thought you might have learned after two wives - date them longer and save us all the agony of another divorce.

Now, the house rules are slightly different This year because I have decided that 47% of you don't know how to take care of nice things. Paper plates and red Solo cups might be bad for the environment, but I'll be gone soon and that will be your problem to deal with.

House Rules:
1. The University of Texas no longer plays Texas A&M. The television stays off during the meal.
2. The "no cans for kids" rule still exists. We are using 2 liter bottles because your children still open a third can before finishing the first two. Parents can fill a child's cup when it is empty. All of the cups have names on them and I'll be paying close attention to refills.
3. Chloe, last year we were at Trudy's house and I looked the other way when your Jell-O salad showed up. This year, if Jell-O salad comes in the front door it will go right back out the back door with the garbage. Save yourself some time, honey. You've never been a good cook and you shouldn't bring something that wiggles more than you. Buy something from the bakery.
4. Grandmothers give grandchildren cookies and candy. That is a fact of life. Your children can eat healthy at your home. At my home, they can eat whatever they like as long as they finish it.
5. I cook with bacon and bacon grease. That's nothing new. Your being a vegetarian doesn't change the fact that stuffing without bacon is like egg salad without eggs. Even the green bean casserole has a little bacon grease in it. That's why it tastes so good. Not eating bacon is just not natural. And as far as being healthy... look at me. I've outlived almost everyone I know.
6. Salad at Thanksgiving is a waste of space.
7. I do not like cell phones. Leave them in the car.
8. I do not like video cameras. There will be 32 people here. I am sure you can capture lots of memories without the camera pointed at me.
9. Being a mother means you have to actually pay attention to the Kids. I have nice things and I don't put them away just because company is coming over. Mary, watch your kids and I'll watch my things.
10. Rhonda, a cat that requires a shot twice a day is a cat that has lived too many lives. I think staying home to care for the cat is your way of letting me know that I have lived too many lives too. I can live with that. Can you?
11. Words mean things. I say what I mean. Let me repeat: You don't need to bring anything means you don't need to bring anything. And if I did tell you to bring something, bring it in the quantity I said. Really, this doesn't have to be difficult.
12. Domino's and cards are better than anything that requires a battery or an on/off switch. That was true when you were kids and it's true now that you have kids.
13. Showing up for Thanksgiving guarantees presents at Christmas. Not showing up guarantees a card that may or may not be signed.

The election is over so I'll watch what I say about politics, and you will do the same. If we all stick to that, we'll have a good time. If not, I'll still have a good time but it will be at your expense.

In memory of your grandfather, the back fridge will be filled with beer. Drink until it is gone. I prefer wine anyway. But one from each family needs to be the designated driver.
I really mean all of the above.

Love You,
Grandma
 
     Thanks, Wayne!

Jokes

Having trouble with the doctor's notes on an emergency case which read, "Shot in the lumbar region," the poor girl was flustered and at her wit's end.

At last she thought she had it figured out and brightened up as she typed up the record, "Wounded in the woods."

==========

A mother traveled 2,000 miles to be with her only son on the day he was to receive his Air Force wings and also get married.

"It was wonderful," she said later. "It isn't every day that a mother watches her son receive his wings in the morning and have them clipped in the evening."

==========

*-- Q and A Quickies --*

Q: After the flash on his camera malfunctioned, what did the devil get back from the drugstore?
A: Prints of darkness.

Q: Where do cows go on their first date?
A: To the moo-vies.

Q: What is a spiders favorite TV show?
A: The newly web game!

Q: What do you call a big Irish spider?
A: Paddy long legs!

==============================

RANDOM TIDBITS

(Palm reading)

The heart line is the first of the major lines examined by a reader and represents love and attraction. It is found towards the top of the palm, under the fingers.

The next line identified by palmists is the head line. This line starts at the edge of the palm under the index finger and flows across the palm towards the outside edge.

Palmists generally interpret the head line to represent the person's mind and the way it works, including learning style, communication style, intellectualism, and thirst for knowledge. It is also believed to indicate a preference for creative or analytical approaches to information.

The life line extends from the edge of the palm above the thumb and travels in an arc towards the wrist. This line is believed to represent the person's vitality and vigor, physical health and general well being. The life line is also believed to reflect major life changes, including cataclysmic events, physical injuries, and relocations.

The fate line runs from the bottom of the palm near the wrist, up through the center of the palm towards the middle finger. This line is believed to be tied to the person's life path, including school and career choices, successes and obstacles. Sometimes this line is thought to reflect circumstances beyond the individual's control, or alternately the person's choices and their consequences.

A simian crease, or fusing of the heart and head lines, has special significance in that both emotional as well as reasoning nature have to be studied from this line alone.

Looking Good

Tips that cut down the amount of times one needs to shave.

Exfoliate: One of the easiest way to get a close and smooth shave every time is to exfoliate your skin regularly. This will remove dead skin for smooth results and it will expose any small hairs that might have been missed otherwise giving you a closer shave.

Grain: Another super important trick to remember to shave less often is to shave against the grain. This will ensure you are getting the closest shave possible and you'll save time by not having to go over the same spot twice!

Conditioner: Want to know a secret trick for shaving products? Conditioner has been shown to be one of the best body products to shave with. Not only will you get a closer shave, the conditioner will keep your skin looking soft and healthy. This is also a great way to save money as you can buy cheaper brands of conditioner rather than high priced shaving creams.

Razor Choice: One of the most important things to decide on when shaving is what razor works best for your skin. There are so many different types of razors you want to make sure you find the one that works best. Try a few different brands and see what will give you the best shave. It's also been suggested that men's razors allow women to get a closer shave with fewer nicks and cuts.

Keep Clean: Razor care is really important when it comes to shaving less often. You want to make sure your razor gets cleaned every time and if it's starting to look like it's in rough shape, it's time for a new one! Using a clean razor every time will guarantee a long lasting shave.

No Carbs: Did you know that refined carbohydrates can actually promote excess hair growth? Cut down on carbs and throw in more veggies and vitamin B6 into your diet to keep hair from growing and to shave less often.

==============================

Best Friends

You never know where your best friend will come from.

I am now 17 years into my second marriage. When I met my wife Martha, I shortly thereafter met her ex-husband Frank who is the father of her children. Needless to say, we didn't hit it off at first. Then slowly and methodically the Lord turned the situation to where we had to get along.

We both had some trouble and were on probation at the same time. Then his mom died and shortly thereafter, my youngest brother died. At that time, he was the only preacher I knew.

I had to humble myself and ask him to deliver my brother's eulogy. He accepted and was a blessing to my family and me. Through the whole ordeal and afterwards, he invited me to church. Two years later, I was saved in that very church.

He has been a friend and spiritual guide ever since and I thank God for him every day. On August 5th, I surrendered to preach the gospel and Frank was one of the first to welcome and congratulate me.

God Bless,

~A MountainWings Original by Bro. Jimmy, Caddo Mills, Texas~


==============================

Got Diapers?

And as I have said before, "I am not wearing a diaper, so don't try to change me".

This was an actual comment from a former subscriber. It was the way he ended his long commentary about an issue that he didn't like.
Goodies > http://www.mountainwings.com/past/1291.htm

His statement about change was the thing that struck me, not his comment about the issue. He actually didn't read it very well and had his facts all wrong.

"I am not wearing a diaper, so don't try to change me".

I deliberately left the period on the above statement outside of the quotation marks. That's the way he wrote it. It is grammatically incorrect for U. S. grammar, the period should be inside of the quotation marks, but since he didn't want to be changed, I assumed that also included grammar.

Maybe diapers are not such a bad thing.

We need diapers when we are immature.
We need diapers when we mess up.
We need diapers when we need help and don't even realize that we need to be changed.

Suppose you were exactly the same now as you were ten years ago?
No, not physically, mentally?

Suppose you had not grown?

Good change is good. When we cease to change we stagnate. When we fail to realize that we all need change, we become self-righteous and blind to our own errant ways.

Period

Got Diapers?

   Thank you, Shari!

Do I Ever Cross Your Mind?

Recorded by
Ray Charles (23 Sept 1930 - 10 June 2004), 1984
 

Do I ever cross your mind
Darlin' do you ever see
Some situation somewhere, somehow
Triggers your memory
And do you ever wonder
What became of all the time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind

Do you ever want to know
If all dreams go on endlessly
Or do they just run down
Somehow and gradually become
The custody of that melancholy jailer father time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind
Do I ever cross your mind
uninvited - when you're lonely
Or does that only, only happen to me
And don't you ever wonder
What became of all the time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind

Do I ever cross your mind
Uninvited when you're lonely
Or does that only, only happen to me
And don't you ever wonder
What became of all the time
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind
And darlin' do I ever, ever cross your mind
