In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

We've Gone To the Dogs

I'm working today but home for lunch. I've been laughing at one of my friends all morning. His wife says he has been shouting at the television set for two weeks now when the news comes on about the health care reform. He says that our country has gone to the dogs. He sounds a litle like Will Rogers, don't you think? He says:

We have blue dogs.

We have white dogs.

And we have black dogs.

I would add, we have that darling dog in the White House. Folks, I'm talking about First Dog Bo.
