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)

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 11/07/18, 6:04 AM:

Good morning. I call this morning Political Hangover Lack of Sleep Hump Day.

I confess I am a junkie when it comes to election results for a big election. I'm happy with some results, not so much with others, but now it's time for people to try and come together where they can find common ground for the sake of America. If we can't do that, then it's probably best to just stay quiet because chaos and anger never solved anything.
  Remember, regardless of what happened and how you feel, the sun comes up this morning like every other morning. So, rejoice in the beauty of God's nature and don't worry about the things you can't change. We have enough issues, each of us does, to spend our time dealing with those we can honestly do something about.

Have a blessed day for every day we wake up is a blessing. Be you on the sea, in the mountains or anywhere in between, God's wonders are there to remind us of His love and presence in a world that will be as beautiful as we make it in our hearts.


    Thank you so much, Jimmy!

 From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 11/05/18 - "Parson's New "Go Daddy" Birthday Video!":

An early Happy Birthday greeting from a Marine buddy.....

"A Scout should be prepared, a Marine should be Semper Fidelis, and a G-Man should be dedicated to Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity, but only trust in the guidance of GOD can insure that each performs accordingly."

   Thank you, Billy!

From Carlene Matthews Vannoy ('60 / '64) of VA - 11/06/18:

  From Barbara Woods Spiers ('61) of VA - 11/06/18:

  From Pat Beck Letzinger ('57) of VA - 11/05/18:

    Thanks, Pat!

   From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/31/18 - "Statistics (#8 in a series of 18)":
  These numbers are based on a single day. The one that may not be clear is the 5000 - an estimate of how many steps the average person takes in a day. I don't know if anyone else will find these of interest, or as much as I do, but one thing that stood out to me is the imbalance in the numbers. Our dependence on technology is clear. It is certainly a blessing in many ways; just hope it does not make life more isolating.

   WOW! Thank you, Shari!

To the irritation of the judge, a man was trying to be excused from jury duty. "Tell me," began the judge, "is there any good reason why you cannot serve as a juror in the trial?"

The man replied, "I don't want to be away from my job that long."

"Can't they do without you at work?" demanded the judge.

"Yes," admitted the juror. "But I don't want them to realize it."

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
