Just want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas.  The liberals out here in the psychotic state of California have almost made it a hate crime to say that, but I still do it anyway.  It's very sad when this is what we have become.  To heck with this "Happy Holidays" crap because they find the word "Christmas" offensive.  I find them offensive.  Hope this finds you all well and enjoying the season with your families.  To any of you who may have sons, daughters, Moms or Dads not at home because of military obligations, please thank them for their service.  I have a nephew in harm's way and I worry about him every day.  Later....

What's ironic about your message, Curtiss, is that Christ was a liberal. But I say "merry Christmas" too.

Yeah Herm, but so was Harry Truman.  Had I been of voting age at that point in time, I, too, would have been a liberal, as I sure as heck would have voted for him.  Wanna read a good book?  Get "Plain Speaking".  It is a biography of Harry.   He is one of my idols.  I don't know if you know it or not, but the KKK was founded by liberals and most of the members were liberals, or undeclared independents.  I am sure that Jesus would not have been a part of this crowd.  This is still being carried on but in a different manner.   Instead of being threatened, harmed or killed, victims have become slaves of the government via "entitlement" programs, in return for their vote and the viscious circle just keeps going on.   And in this sense, those of us who are conservatives are also slaves of the government, because we are paying for this in a different way -- monetarily.   Just so you know, I am not a Republican.  Republican does not equal Conservative in my book.  Party lines have become totally blurred and Republicans have become more like Republicrats -- walking the fence to garner liberal votes while not losing their "conservative" constituency.  This has meant, for several years now, that I never get to vote "for" anyone, but rather I find myself voting against someone, because there isn't a candidate running that I can believe has my best interests (and in my way of thinking the country's best interests) at heart.  Along those same lines, the liberals in California are a different breed.  I don't view you as one of them.  You don't have the vacuous stare, the requisite frontal lobotomy and lack of personal hygiene that most of them do  (lol).   Have a Merry Christmas and a Great New Year, my friend.  Curtsmiley

I have to chime in on this one:

I  guess it all depends upon how one defines "liberal."  I'm conservative, but I may e.g., have a liberal attitude (on a micro scale) about helping out a poor family during the holidays. It's something I would do out of my own volition. Nobody told me to do it. That doesn't make me a liberal on a macro scale. It's my own business and nobody else’s. I may encourage others to do the same, but it would have to be out of their personal volition also - not as a result of my admonition or compulsion.

When a liberal (on a macro scale) has a similar conviction, then he/she isn’t satisfied unless everyone else is doing the same thing, and they won’t leave it alone until everybody is.  Take it one step further … a wealthy liberal gets on a guilt trip and wants to do more for poor people. That’s all well and good, but this time, he/she wants you to pay the bill instead. That’s not charity – that’s tyranny.

The Lord loveth a cheerful giver … not one that give’s because of a governmental mandate.

I agree with Robert.  Being blessed in life, I help many people.  I feel that I should, but I do it voluntarily.  I was raised this way and I have stuck to my upbringing.  Just wanted to clarify that point.  I don't think anyone can be one way or the other completely.  Compromises are a way of life and make it bearable or even better...

It is unfortunate the government has to mandate charity for those w/ less from those w/ more.  Especially sad from a country that expouses Christian values.  Happy Holidays.

I agree Cindy.  When I was growing up, I did a lot of hunting with my Dad, but we did not hunt for the sport.  We used the meat to feed our family.  Our family was not a big fan of deer meat, so we would mix it with other meat and make sausage with it, which was really good.  We would also give to those around us who were poor, or had fallen on hard times, or just as a gift.  We were not rich, but were doing better than many.  I still remember how good it made me feel to do so.  Unlike the government, I didn't feel superior, or like I had control over them, or that they owed me something.  This was just the way people treated each other back then.   We need more of that nowadays.

My neighbor lady has fallen on hard times, but we have been helping her.  She cleans our house for us and we pay her about double what she gets doing this as her regular job.  We often give her gifts of different things, disguising them as stuff we no longer use, or whatever.  One needs to look out for another person's dignity, too.  Happy Christmas again to you all!!!!   Keep in mind the spirit of giving!!!  Curt...

Hey Curtiss! How are you? Jerry and I are doing fine we have just moved into a one level home down in the old neighborhood on 200 west. It's a over 50 community and it's perfect for us. Had to do a little remodeling to make it wheelchair accessable for Jerry but we are loving it.

Hope all is well with you and yours. I too would like to see people keep in touch with this forum.

I don't know if this will go through. A Techi-guru I'm not. But there's snow on the mountains, it will finally hit 70 degrees today, so life is good. Kudos to Vicky for being such a  marvelous caregiver to Jerry. She's been at it for some time now. We admire her for her good heart. Herm

I would like to see more people pop into here and just let us know how they are doing, too.  When I typed my message, I had a feeling that you and Herm would be showing up not too soon afterwards.wink   Glad to hear you have moved to a single level home that is accommodating for Jerry.   You are to be commended for what you are doing and standing by him all this time.

Barb and I are doing ok.  Just got back from LA.  Her mom was in the USC hospital there.  Seems they were doing an endoscopy on her and punctured her esophagus.  They had pumped her intestines full of air to make it easier to do and then when they punctured her, all that air escaped into her body cavities.  It was touch and go for a while, but she is on the mend now.  This happened to Barb, too, but in her case, they punctured her stomach and all that acid drained into her body cavities.  We about lost her, too.   To me, this is a huge incentive to stay healthy and out of hospitals.  I don't know if doc's are as good as they used to be...

Hope all is going well for our class in general.   Y'all have a good day, ok?

Update from Canada:  After9years, 9 months of caring for my mother, she passed away peacefully three weeks ago.  Trying to adjust to being without her now and deal with all the estate stuff.  Some changes will definitely half to be made but I'm doing all right.  Nice to see the comments on here.

Mardene,

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. it will take some time to adjust and go through the grieving process. It is wonderful that you were able to be there for her these past years.

Vicky

Mardene, I don't know if I'm doing this right, but accept my heartfelt condolences on behalf of the loss of your mom.    H

Condolences from me, as well. Do you ever get down this way?  I come to Logan every few months because my Mom is still here.  :)

LETTERMAN JACKETS NEEDED FOR  "CATCH ME IF YOU CAN" THE MUSICAL!!!!   As the costume designer/builder I am currently working on the following production at the Majestic Theater in Corvallis Oregon.   Frank Abagnale, Jr. (Leonardo DiCaprio) worked as a doctor, a lawyer, and as a co-pilot for a major airline -- all before his 18th birthday.Turns out  Frank Abagnate Jr.  High School colors were, "you got it" Crimson and Gold sound familiar?   I am hoping to retreive several Logan High letterman jackets to put on stage.  I can either return them at the end of the run or you can donate them to the theater.  Please check in your closets to see if you still have one.  You can call me at 541-979-6199 and leave a message ( I seldom answer calls that don't have a name attached) and I will return the call.  Or you can mail them to The Majestic Theater c/o  Cynthia Mintun,  115 SW 2nd St, Corvallis, OR 97333.  If you would like I will send a picture of your letterman jacket on stage.  I already have Willie H, and Dan V.  looking, hope there are still some out there in the closet.   Thank-you for your consideration.  PS The 50th reunion was awesome, thank you to all of those who worked so hard.  I doubt Herm knew that he would be the class president, forever when he took the job.   Cyndi Mintun
