|Tom "Homer" W.||RE: ~~GOOD NEWS~~|
Hi Anne ~ I'm glad that you have some good news - we all can use some good news. Perkins is a nice restaurant, definitely, but my favorite place to eat is at Cracker Barrel a bit noisy but I love everything they have on the menu! Sometimes I have to flip a coin for a dinner or a breakfast because I love them both.
Good news with your friend, John, and a real break that he had no liver problems and the gallbladder is an easy fix - medically speaking - they don't keep you long after the surgery like they used to and the incision is smaller also.
I am so sick of the TV news and biased reporting by NBC, CBS, ABC and I am sick of the lies and rants from both Clinton and Trump and then all the horrible things happening around the world isn't fun to watch either.
Yes, I have seen the movie, "Glory" and it definitely was a flick that needed to be seen. It gave the blacks credit they deserved and showed the horrors of war and the pain and suffering for the cause of freedom that is still being fought today in a number of countries against war mongers that want to take not only your freedom but your life as well. And about education being the answer to the ghettos of the world, Anne, that would be a good thing but I think there also has to be a change of heart for people to reach out and help the poor.
I made a trip to Cincinnati today and visited the grave of Charlie Henry Rich who dealt Wild Bill Hickok his last hand, a pair of aces and 8's or better known as the "Dead Man's Hand". His family placed a large monument stone on his grave. Too bad I can't put a photo on this to show you. I thought I was going to be a dead man trying to deal with the Cincinnati traffic - terrible especially on I-75 and I-275. It was a fun day and interesting. Take care, Anne, catch you later alligator, after while crocodile ~ Tom

Hi Anne - first, I hope you got through all the storms, tornadoes, and lightning we had today and this evening. We didn't lose our power and only got soaked carrying groceries in the house! We had no damage done to our house, only a flooded back yard - PTL! We got by easy compared to many.
I am happy that your trip to Georgia was fun celebrating your 25th wedding anniversary - good for you and Bill. This past April we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and it's hard to believe that it has been 50 years ago! The years slip by fast.... I know about the red clay in Georgia and I have been to Atlanta several times and to Stone Mountain also. Georgia is famous for something else besides red clay and that's Kudzu! Those mountains of green remind me of a science fiction movie I saw with Steve McQueen but instead of being invaded by the "Blob", it's Kudzo - ha! My wife has relatives in Conyers, Georgia and we've been down there many times. I have deer hunted in Georgia several times in years past, and have been through a few forest there. Nothing like hearing the wind moving through the pines waiting for daylight to come. I love Georgia. Have you been keeping up with the swimming gig at the YMCA? I have gained a few pounds but am working them off by hiking or walking the 2.5 mile loop around the lakes at Fort Harrison regularly which helps to keep my weight down. I do eat a lot of small cans of vegetables as snacks when I feel hungry and skip the the Little Debbie Honey Buns but do cheat once in a while for a small bag of potato chips. But not very often - it takes sacrifice to keep the weight off. Hang in there, Anne - wishing you and hubby all good things. Catch you later, on a freighter, alligator ~ Tom
|Robert David Miller||RE: GOD BLESS YOU FOR YOUR WORK|
Thank you for your compliment and the touching message you sent. I have a vhs copy of the Four Little Girls and just recently watched it again after a number of years. I wanted to see if any of the girls were remembered on find-a-grave and left those notes. It a shame we can't all live in harmony. I'm part Native American and know of the injustice in this world and it's a crying time for all of humanity. If you want to go through my Lost Little Angels and see the forgotten children of my area, I spent 12 years of my life to read 104 years of local newspapers to compile my database from which these angel came from. None of them have a headstone, so they are lost for eternity except in my database and memorial to them, along with the Lost Angels for adults in the same situation. You also may want to look at my "They Were Taken To Soon," virtual cemetery for children from around the United States. Thank You again. Sincerely, Bob Miller
|Bennett Turk||RE: SHARING GOOD NEWS!|
Thank you very much for your very kind and nice e-mail. I hope and pray that everything is going very well for you and your beloved family.
Your e-mail stated you were going to a vae a birthday soon. I wish it is, (was), a day of celebration and happiness for you, Anne, and your day of fun lasts all year long.
I really love reading your posts to Find a Grave and I am positive that everyone else who reads them does as well.
I am a better reader than a writer, and I like to just post a picture instead of leaving a message, which is why it took me so long to send you this e-mail to your wonderful e-mail to me. I apologize that it took me so long to send it to you.
I hope you and your husband are having a wonderful summer and that you have a lot more opportunities to swim and do other fun activities.
As for suggesting which charities to donate to, I am sure the Attorney General of your state can suggest the better ones to give to. The Salvation Army and the Child Fund are two that I have heard good reports on.
That is all I have to write for now, Anne.
In the Holy Name of Jesus Christ; May God Almighty Bless you and your entire family and friends now and forever!
|Darren Plateroti||RE: Your Message to Eric Carr|
Thank you so much for the message to me; it means a lot to know that there are fellow KISS fans who agree with the fact that Eric was the greatest drummer they had. Every time I listen to him play the drums for KISS, I'm always blown away, no matter how many times I play the songs!
Take care and keep on keeping on,
|Bennett Turk||RE: SHARING GOOD NEWS!|
I am so glad to hear about the good news in your life. It is wonderful to read your messages. It really makes my smile to read them and I am sure that other people love to read them as well. I pray that you have a wonderful summer. Blessings to you and yours always and forever, in each and everything that you do.
|Tom "Homer" W.||~~GOOD NEWS~~|
Anne - I am glad you had good results with the ultrasound and now you can sit back and relax a little. keeping your diet in force and maybe a few laps around the pool at the YMCA will definitely help also! Have fun at Nashville - I have been there many times and have camped out at Brown County State Park on cycle rides. I have hiked the trails and hung out at the lake. Beautiful state park. Wish I could transfer some photos to show you.... Hang in there - keep the Faith. Catch ya later, on a freighter - Tom
|Tom "Homer" W.||~~ MEMORIAL DAY~~ 500 RACE~~|
Hi Anne - first, wishing you the best and good results for your ultrasound on Monday. You will be in my prayers. I will remember because it's also the date of D-Day (plus 72 years) - I was four and a half years old but remember the war very clearly especially VE and VJ Days, the rationing stamps, black-outs at night, etc. We had a neighbor that lost two sons at Pearl Harbor... I didn't fully understand the horrors of war but was old enough to know some of the suffering it caused. My cousin fought in the Battle of the Bulge, a Sherman tank commander, and was wounded when his tank was knocked out by enemy fire. He and his best buddy were sitting outside Paris, France prior to that and were eating c-rations sitting on the tank when a German sniper killed his buddy - my cousin jumped up and sprayed the tree line with his top .50 caliber machine gun and saw the sniper fall from a tree - he crossed the open field to where the dying German soldier was on the ground and took the butt of his M1 rifle and knocked the snipers teeth out and finished him off without firing his weapon. He stored those teeth in a leather bag that he wore around his neck. That's what war does to people. It was long after the war, the early 60's that he became a born again Christian and made peace with God and himself and he buried that leather bag in his back yard saying a prayer over it. With the bag of teeth, he also buried a lot of hate and horrible memories. PTL! His brother saw action in the Pacific Theater and survived the war but not without scars. I thought about my two cousins and all veterans in all the wars they fought and especially on Memorial Day. I did ride up to visit my daughter's grave on my Harley and saw the first part of the 500 Mile Race for the first time on TV, the 100th Race - wow! My brother, as a Memorial Day gift to me, bought a memorial brick at Camp Atterbury in memory of my Air Force service and he served with me in SAC and also served in the Army as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne. About my shingles, I have no more pain or problems but they did leave a lot of scars which may or may not, disappear in time? I did have a shingle shot (expensive) and that saved me a lot of pain and kept it from spreading, the doctor said. Anne, do you remember the days when they called Memorial Day, "Decoration Day"? I sure do! Here's hoping God will decorate your life with all good things, hang in there, keep the Faith - catch you later alligator, after while crocodile - Tom
|Tom "Homer" W.||~ GOOD FRIDAY ~ HAPPY EASTER ~|
Hi Anne - good to hear from you! I am hoping things have been better for you and by the tone of your note, they have. We both will give thought of today being Good Friday and the suffering and pain on the cross by Jesus for those of us, such as myself, that are not worthy or deserving of His suffering. I give all praise and glory to the Father that made all that is, that was, and that will be through His Son, Christ Jesus. PTL! If you want to better understand who Christ is look in the Book of PHILIPPIANS 2 - Verse 5-11. Congratulations on your successful CRHP speech, good for you, Anne. I did have a problem with a case of shingles - ewwww - nasty! About 14 months ago our family doctor strongly recommended that we get shingle shots being over 50, having had chicken pox and or being a diabetic so my wife and I did get our shingle shots. They were expensive at $239 per each shot - ouch - but I did cough up the money and it proved to be worth it. My insurance wouldn't cover it. The dermatologist told me that I was very lucky that the shingles didn't spread all the way up my leg ( I got lesions all over my left foot) and the doc attributed that to having the singles shot. It didn't spread and I had a rather mild case of it although the pain didn't feel mild. I was prescribed large blue pills and the healing process began quickly once I started on the medication. The pain is now gone and my rash is dried up and quickly disappearing. I have gained a few pounds but will lose it soon as I become fully active again. I haven't been hiking because of the shingles being located on my foot. Anyway, Anne, The shingles shot was expensive but worth every penny since I did come down with shingles. I will cheat on my diet and nurse a box of Jujyfruits for my Easter candy over the weekend. One box is all.... Hard boiled eggs don't count, do they? Ummm! Keep up the good work, Anne and swimming at the Y too. God bless America and our men and women in uniform. Catch you later, Anne - dare I say it - later alligator, after while crocodile - Tom
|Bennett Turk||Happy Blessed Holy week Anne|
Hello Anne Beckman,
Thank you again for your very kind and thoughtful e-mail messages. I really enjoy reading them. They are very nice and brighten up my days.
I hope and pray that everything is going well with you and your family. How's the weather where you live? Where I live, the winter was cold, but, not that snowy or icy. Still, the promise of Spring and Easter Sunday makes the upcoming season look so much brighter, especially with the flowers that will be growing through the soil, as well as the return of many birds, and daylight lasting longer.
All the best to you, Anne, and your wonderful family throughout the Holy week and all during the year. Blessings to everyone in the name of the Lord God Christ Jesus. Signed, Bennett.
