“Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on,
with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.” 

- Hal Borland
(14 May 1900 - 22 Feb 1978)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   We're coming down to the end of the year.....

BONUS #1 - Ring Out, Wild Bells - Der Glocke Klang, Nr. 142 (Ring Out, Wild Bells, #215)

BONUS #2 - Ring Out, Wild Bells

BONUS #3 - Ring Out, Wild Bells - Electric guitar and violin duet


"Alfred, Lord Tennyson is considered the most representative poet of the Victorian Age in England, and many of his works characterize the conflict between the Christian faith and the beginnings of the scientific revolution. The death of his sister's fiancé, Arthur Henry Hallam, at the age of 22 plunged Tennyson into profound shock and a lifelong struggle between faith and doubt. "Ring Out, Wild Bells," generally considered a New Year's hymn, is taken from the 106th Canto of In Memoriam, Tennyson's monumental elegy to Hallam that was published in 1850, the same year that he was appointed Poet Laureate."

After 7 days in the hospital I got home yesterday late--It's going according to schedule--continued pain and more visits from all kinds of people and somewhere in there is an office visit??

...This has been a case of " Murphy's Law" working over time with what could go wrong did go wrong--2/3 days stay turned into a week--what was on "film"---they discovered---wasn't the entire story--it was worse!! But--hey, they're dealing with a Typhoon and we don't give up!!....

     Thank you, Wayne Honey!  

2.   From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 12/29/18, 1:07 PM:
Yes, indeed, I'm back and I'm finally starting to come out of my groggy state of mind. But WOW, I am so blessed to have received so many prayers and good wishes concerning my surgery. I wish I could answer each individually but it would take more time than I am told to be on line each day for some time. I am truly overwhelmed and I do promise to give at least a like for each remaining unanswered in the next day or so. It's the least I can do.
  It was truly a severe case of Carpal Tunnel but the final result won't be certain for some time. But this much I can say. The surgery was a success and the pain was cured. The numbness will take some time to go away, but the good news is if it isn't 100% eliminated due to nerve damage over time the end result will be minimal. It won't be enough to keep me from the things I love to do which, of course, have writing and horses at the top of the list. I'll know more when I go to have stitches removed January 7th and find out when I can get back into full gear with the recommendations of Dr. Powell. I was blessed to have a wonderful Heavenly Father to guide the hands of my gifted surgeon and the prayers offered by so many to add their power to a superlative outcome.. And from now on, all of you good folks are no longer just Facebook friends but just plain friends. God bless you all and you'll start seeing some posts soon but probably not much for today and tomorrow. There will be posts right away, but I'm going to follow the good doctors' advice to not overdo during the healing process. "Ain't" life grand when the sun shines on you. Now back to clearing the fog from my head and letting the Son shine in.

    Thank you, Jimmy!  


3.   From Me ('65) of NC - 12/29/18:

   After a delay of several years, I was finally able to consult an ophthalmologist yesterday about my cataracts, which had first been detected as small and slow growing fifteen years ago, and reconfirmed seven years ago. Having strong reason to believe they were now rapidly advancing, I at last secured an appointment, and as I suspected, they had both become rather large. Furthermore, my retinal pressure (which is supposed to be between 15 and 20) was 22 in both eyes. That particular revelation was really not a big thrill in my life. Lens replacement surgery to prevent total blindness in both eyes will be scheduled soon, hopefully in February. Meanwhile, I have pre-op consultations again with my ophthalmologist (a corneal specialist) on Wednesday, January 2, and a retinal specialist on Tuesday, January 29. My long-held fantasy that this surgery would eliminate entirely my need for corrective lenses may have been just a pipe dream, but at least I shall see better, and any necessary glasses will not be the coke bottle lenses I've been wearing all my life. Your prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Ring Out, Wild Bells

Music by Crawford Gates, 1948
(b. 29 Dec 1921)

Words by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850
(06 Aug 1809 - 06 Oct 1892)

  1. Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light:
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

2. Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

3. Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more;
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

4. Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.
5. Ring out the want, the care, the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

6. Ring out false pride in place and blood.
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

7. Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

8. Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.
