“We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.”

  From Rip Collins ('65) of TN - 10/21/18 - "Don't Forget The Marine Corps Birthday":

  Happy Birthday Marines

Rip Collins

   Thank you so much, Rip! Many things I do forget, but as a confirmed USMC junkie since the age of two years and four months when I caught my first site of a gorgeous young Marine, resplendent in his dress blues outside Miller and Rhodes in downtown Richmond, I should hope I'd never forget the Marine Corps Birthday!

   Semper Fi!

 From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 11/07/18 - "Happy Saturday":

MY TRAVEL PLANS FOR 2018 & beyond:


I have been in many places, but I've never been in Kahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone.

You have to be in Kahoots with someone.

I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my children, friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go and I try not to visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I'm in Capable and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenaline flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age, I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent, but I don't remember what country I was in. It's an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there.


PLEASE DO YOUR PART!

You can do your bit by remembering to send this e-mail to at least one unstable person. My job is done! Life is too short for negative drama and petty things. So laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly!

From one unstable person to another - I hope everyone is happy in your head - we're all doing pretty well in mine!

     Thanks, Billy!



Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.”

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/31/18 - "Statistics (#10 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!

 
 



BONUS NOVEMBER DECORATING IDEA:

Fresh Green Thanksgiving Décor Ideas - "Green color is not typical for Thanksgiving décor but why not use this fresh in all senses idea? Green tablecloths, napkins, table runners and candleholders are necessary elements for the table décor, and then the most interesting part begins: take green plants, branches, leaves, apples and other fruits and vegetables to decorate the space. Such a place would look amazingly fresh, fine and original. Make some easy moss or peas balls for mantel décor, add some green pumpkins or just paint them the shade you like. Candles inside green pumpkins and even food are awesome ideas to please the guests. Scroll down to get inspired by more amazing green Thanksgiving décor ideas!"



BONUS THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS CROCHET PATTERNS:
Thanksgiving Turkey Appliqué
 Cindy Harris' Christmas Characters


BONUS RECIPES (Sorry; not theme-related):

Country Tar Heel Pie - "Take a trip to the country side and try Country Tar Heel Pie. A wonderful blend of all natural flavors, you won't be able to deny its awesome flavors. With chocolate chips and chopped pecans, it will become a family favorite that you'll want to make for every potluck and holiday season. Easy to make, it's a pie recipe that is perfect when you need a dessert on the fly. Enjoy!"

Homemade Chicken Stock (Crockpot) - "When it comes to making it yourself, chicken stock is one of those things that you may be tempted to say "why bother?" It's pretty cheap to buy, and the store-bought version is fine to use in most capacities. However, once you make your own, you'll definitely see the difference. Homemade stock is rich and flavorful. And what's even better - it's practically free to make. Here's my M.O. Whenever I roast a chicken or buy a rotisserie chicken, I pick all the meat and skin off, put the carcass in a big ziploc bag, and throw it in the freezer. I also save any scraps of veggies and throw them in the freezer as well - bits of carrot, that half of an onion that I didn't need, celery that's on it's last leg... you get the picture. I usually wait to make the stock until I have two chicken carcasses. Just to get more bang for my buck."



FINALLY:
