    I think, being brought up in the 40's, 50's and 60's......was the very, very best of America.....I am very thankful that was my time, and I wouldn't want any other time........when people look back, that period of time is the period of time they focus on........

    Basic....I am enjoying let be as I write this reply it is a very sweet touch...the last couple of years being here on the forum has been the hardest for me...knowing of Onautopilots condition and his request that he asked of me to keep his situation under my hat was really tough to do here and especially when you and forum members were inquiring about him....you know how I feel about you and it killed me every day to keep this under my hat...I would do no different for you or any other member here if requested to keep something personal...sometimes being a man is a hard and unpopular thing to do...Im going to listen to the song once again before I head out to work ....Im just going to let it be....luv you 777s

    ya-ya....I've got nothing against you or anybody here re OAP's situation. You did the right thing, based upon his wishes.

    I liked him and it just would have been nice to let him know how I felt about him....I'm sure you understand.

    Had trouble keeping a dry eye with this one, which I'll wager JB sang on his way Upstairs.

    About 50 years ago a radio DJ I often listened to signed off with a song, "I'm walkin' out the door...with you on my mind." While searching for it (unsuccessfully) I stumbled onto these gems.

    My picks for Friday, August 10, 2018: It's been a good run, but current state of the forum is basically unusable. With that in mind, Final Songs, Part I

    All Things Must Pass -- George Harrison




    So Long, Fairwell -- Von Trapp Family Singers




    Don't Dream It's Over -- Crowded House




    Time for me to Fly -- REO Speedwagon

    Alas, it is looking more and more like this forum is going the way of the Usenet newsgroup. While I do not intend to abandon it completely I will miss the active discussions. For those willing to fight the resource hydra to stay in touch, and not just with me, the forum sends a notification by regular e-mail to recipients of private messages, or so it does to me. YMMV for it may depend on some profile or alert setting.

    I was looking for a classical requiem but all the ones I know are a half-hour or more long.
