Newsletter Vol 37 / Issue 05

Greetings Friday the 13th is my birthday. I’ll be seventy years old. I can tell you getting old is not for sissies. But, as far as I know, there’s no good alternative to getting old. So, I’m praying for good legs, that my back will hold up, my mind will stay clear, and I’ll have

Newsletter Vol 37 / Issue 04

Greetings I had brunch today (April 11) with Paul Jalbert, Vince Zacardi, and Jack Kincella. We had a little going away gathering for Jack. Several others were supposed to attend but were providentially hindered. This has already been said by several in several different ways, but I’ll add mine. Jack has been a blessing to

Newsletter Vol 37 / Issue 03

Greetings I apologize for the newsletter being late this month. It’s hard to believe the third Tuesday is here so soon. Maybe it has something to do with the time change. I don’t ever recall springing forward a whole week though. It’s the 2nd Monday as I start composing this, but tomorrow is 3rd Tuesday.

Greetings Thanks to all who’ve checked in to ask about the surgery. It went well, all in all. I go back for the follow up on the 14th. I hope to work in a nice lunch with my Valentine. She’s gone above and beyond the call this past week. I’m having somewhat of a hard

Greetings I have high hopes that 2022 is going to be an improvement over 2021. Not that last year wasn’t an improvement over 2020. There does seem to be some change for the better. I saw a quote the other day to the effect “when I said ‘things couldn’t get much worse’, I didn’t mean

Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 12

Greetings I have ambivalent feelings about December. The close of one year and the beginning of another. We’re looking back and remembering both good and bad of the past year, all the while knowing we can’t tarry there long. There’s a new year just around the corner that holds both unknown trials and joys. Whether

Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 11

Greetings I’m thankful for Thanksgiving. It’s a holiday you can sink your teeth into – figuratively and literally. Folk seem to be wanting to change the name of everything theses days, even doing away with things we love and hold dear – even Thanksgiving! If it were up to me to change the name of

Greetings I’m thankful that we’re entering into the holiday season. I love fall weather. You just don’t sweat as much. As far as the actual holidays, I’m not a big fan of Halloween. Except my wife always buys lots of candy and we have fewer Trick or Treaters every year. BTW, picture of the 2021

Newsletter Vol 36 / Issue 09

Greetings For the “What I’m Thankful For” series, I’m going to re-plow some old ground. I think one of the first things I wrote about was good friends- especially those in the wood club. During the past several weeks I’ve come to realize how special it is to work with friends of like mind. Several

Greetings Thanks to Pete Miller for sending me these two points having to do with persistence (from Charles Stanley’s website.) I’m going to use them for my “What I’m Thankful For“ series. Learn the difference between being a failure and experiencing failure in life. — You’ve all heard of the all-purpose cleaner Formula 409. It’s
