Dearest Anne Beckman,
Thank you very much for your very kind, nice, loving, and wonderful e-mails. I really love reading about your family and you. I hope and pray that everything is going well with you.

Anne - just wanted to wish you luck and a good day having your Zometa treatment, hoping all goes easy for you. I do not know exactly what kind of treatment that is but it probably won't be any fun.
Labor Day weekend was fantastic for motorcycle riding and I put on many miles riding my Harley to Cincinnati, Ohio and north to Fairmount and Marion, Indiana and on the back roads with tall corn stalks on each side of the roads and riding home was like riding through a long tunnel after dark. I do slow down because of the wild life, deer, raccoon's, coyotes, etc. coming out of the farm fields at night crossing the roads - I keep the speed down to around 45 mph. No 70 at night on back roads and to date, I haven't broad-sided any deer. PTL! The stars and Milky Way can be seen so vividly out in the country!
I have been to Brown County dozens of times and Nashville but do avoid it on holiday weekends - just too crowded and traffic is horrible. I was on I-65 when going to the Camp Atterbury Annual public open house. I took a bus ride to the restricted areas and they had a Howitzer 105mm cannon firing down range and A-10 fighters strafing targets for us spectators to see. I have a brick at the Army memorial there with my name on it as does my bro. It's a beautiful memorial (and open to the public) as well as the really neat Army Museum there (free) with many interesting displays, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam displays are definitely interesting and parents can take their children to see since they do not teach such history in the schools these days as compared to my days in school. I remember well VE and VJ Day and nobody was screaming "gun control" back then, guns were considered tools to keep us from being invaded by our enemies.
I was very glad the holiday weekend was nice and especially for those good folks that are still in the work force, a nice weather three day weekend is special for those that have to work every day and I do remember those times and how much holidays meant to me to just get a break from the pressures of my job and away from my boss! I had some really horrible supervisors better known as "stupid-visors" but I was lucky to have several very good bosses that treated their workers with respect and actually knew their job and were smart. They made up for some of the other ones and I didn't dread going to work in the mornings. Wishing you the best and all good things come your way - catch you later, alligator and take it easy greasy, you've got a long way to slide - Tom

Anne - enough on politics but just wanted to give my opinion since everyone else has an opinion. November will be very interesting. I changed my F.A.G. site photo so you can see what this lake I hiked to, yesterday, looks like. Just click on photo to enlarge it. It is Prather Lake which is rather remote and a good hike for exercise (rough getting down to it and then back up to the Hatfield Ridge trail) but the effort is worth it. I had the lake all to myself and that's about every time I hike to this beautiful lake. I need the exercise and have fun doing it. I have been to this lake many, many, times over the years and have only seen the normal wild life, deer, squirrels, raccoons, etc. but there have been reports of Bigfoot in this area... I always have my camera with me but I'd probably be shaking too hard to take a decent photo if I did see a Bigfoot -ha!
Yes, I saw on the news about Gene Wilder and I thought - OMG - he was 83 years old! I had no idea he was that old but I forget that I am older also. Time goes fast! Remember Gene Wilder was married to Gilda Radner. Well hang in there - catch you later, alligator, I am off on a Harley ride today! This summer has gone by so fast! Take care - Tom

Anne - wishing you a fun in the sun three day Labor Day weekend. Every day is a free day being retired but I remember how I loved those holiday free days off especially with pay back when I was in the work force. Our leaders seem to never learn by history! Look at the condition Europe is in and yet Hillary wants socialism to rule in her agenda - I don't get it? Margaret Thatcher said, "the problem with socialism is eventually you run out of other people's money". In other words, you can't keep giving away hard earned tax money to those that put absolutely nothing back into the system and then expect our country to prosper. Socialism has never worked and never will work. Has not history taught us that?

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

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

Dearest Anne,
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!

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,
