“Don't be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Mmmm - I love this dreamy song; it always makes me want to dance!
BONUS - It's Not for Me to Say - Johnny Mathis, @ 1957
"It's Not for Me to Say" is a 1957 popular song with music by Robert Allen and lyrics by Al Stillman. It was written for the 1957 movie Lizzie (starring Eleanor Parker), and was sung by Johnny Mathis.
A recording by Johnny Mathis, arranged by Ray Conniff was the most successful version of the song, reaching #5 on the Billboard Top 100 singles chart.
From Me ('65) of NC - 11/15/18 - " My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) and Me":
| As Paul was already
scheduled for another follow-up visit with the fabulous Mr. Sidney
Wolinsky, P.A., and I wanted to obtain a referral to an
ophthalmologist for cataract surgery, not to mention the increased
difficulty in breathing I've been experiencing, I secured an appointment
for myself as well.
Mr. Wolinsky was positively giddy when he saw the incredible improvement in Haul Party since he first saw him on 08/14/18 (when it was determined that he had Sjogren's Syndrome and low thyroid) and his meds were adjusted and he's adhered so strictly to his very rigid diet! Paul had no idea just how very close he was to death, but as Brent said, "On a scale of 1 to 10, he was about a 1.5."
I neglected to report here earlier that when Mr. Wolinsky saw Paul on October 16 and ran more labs, he was found to be hovering between Stage One and Stage Two kidney failure, instead of the previously diagnosed Stage 4!
When it was my turn, they ran labs, ordered a barrage of tests (just because I'd had precious little done in the way of a full check-up since the fall of 2001! ), and gave me a chest X-ray. That revealed that the asthma which I've had my entire life (and y'all thought I was just skipping school! ) has now morphed into full blown COPD, so there's that..... I'll be returning on 11/27/18 for an EKG and more exciting updates.

“We hope that, when the insects take over the world, they will remember
with gratitude how we took them along on all our picnics.”
(08 Oct 1915 - 25 Feb 1977)
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
WOW! Thank you, Shari!

|BONUS THANKSGIVING RECIPES:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/15/18:
|One of the youth soccer coaches
didn't care much for my refereeing and had no problem letting me know
it. Fed up, I politely threatened him with a send-off if he didn't stop.
He calmed down, but an older woman took up where he'd left off. "You'd better control your sideline," I warned the coach.
The coach turned to the woman and barked, "Knock it off, Mom!"
