11/16/15 - NNHS Newsletter - It's Not for Me to Say

“Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell
is necessary before you can meet again. And
meeting again, after moments or lifetime,
is certain for those who are friends.

- Richard Bach
(b. 23 June 1936)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Mmmm -  I love this dreamy song; it always makes me want to dance!

        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 11/15/15 - "Food for Thought: 'Old Person' ":

I never really liked the term "Old Person" but this makes me feel better about it. And if you aren't one, I bet you know one! I got this from an "Old Person" friend of mine!

OLD PERSON PRIDE

I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old person receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see.

Old People are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old People remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.

Old People remember World War II, Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peace-keeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam.

If you bump into an Old Person on the sidewalk, he will apologize. If you pass an Old Person on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old People trust strangers and are courtly to women.

Old People hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.

Old People get embarrassed if someone curses in front of women and children, and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.

Old People have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.

It's the Old People who know our great country is protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.

This country needs Old People with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.

We need them now more than ever.

I was taught to respect my elders. It's just getting harder to find them.
 

   INDEED! Thank you, Dools!


From My Friend, Jessica, of NC - 11/14/15:

It's Not for Me to Say

Lyrics by Al Stillman (26 June 1906 – 1979); Music by Robert Allen (05 Feb 1927 - 01 Oct 2000)

Recorded by Johnny Mathis (b. 30 Sept 1935), 1957
 

It's not for me to say you love me
It's not for me to say you'll always care
Oh, but here for the moment I can hold you fast
And press your lips to mine
And dream that love will last

As far as I can see this is heaven
And speaking just for me, it's ours to share
Perhaps the glow of love will grow with every passing day
Or we may never meet again
But then, it's not for me to say

And speaking just for me, it's ours to share
Perhaps the glow of love will grow with every passing day
Or we may never meet again
But then, it's not for me to say
