   From Butch Ragland ('63) of CO - 06/29/16:

  Heavy and big! My podiatrist decided to put a cast on my remaining foot to allow for final and quick healing, with an opening on the right side so my home care nurse can clean and care for the small wound on her visits a few times each week. This will come off in two weeks and hopefully I will be done with this problem! I can't afford to lose this foot!

Keep me in your prayers, folks! Thanks and God Bless each of you! Kind of nice getting on the back deck again!

   YOWZERONI! I'm so sorry, Butch! You take care, and you'll certainly be in our prayers!

From - 06/28/15:

A guy was driving when a policeman pulled him over.

He rolled down his window and said to the officer, "Is there a problem, Officer?"

"No problem at all. I just observed your safe driving and am pleased to award you a $5,000 Safe Driver Award. Congratulations. What do you think you're going to do with the money?"

He thought for a minute and said, "Well, I guess I'll go get that drivers' license."

The lady sitting in the passenger seat said to the policeman, "Oh, don't pay attention to him - he's a real smart aleck when he's drunk and stoned."

The guy from the back seat said, "I TOLD you guys we wouldn't get far in a stolen car!"

At that moment, there was a knock from the trunk and a muffled voice said, "Are we over the border yet?"

That's All There Is to That

Recorded by Nat King Cole (17 Mar 1919 – 15 Feb 1965), 1956

Did you ever watch the one you love
slowly drifting away from you
And you know deep in your heart
There is nothing you can do
To make her stay, to turn the tide
To ease the pain that you feel inside
Oh when her eyes say it's over and done
Then you simply must face the fact

So you leave and think it's over
But you come hurrying back
Hoping she'll change her mind
Praying she'll take you back
But like the lady said
That's all there is to that
