RE: Your Beautiful Graphic-THANK YOU FOR IT!
I'm so glad you liked the token, and like you i don't make them myself but modified some to make them look brighter or better, or added text to some. Not sure which token you liked but i think it might have been the one i left for Ingrid Pitt this morning. That one i made look brighter because it was very dark, but i think i know the other token you mean. I have had them a long time. And you have just met another Night Owl. And yes i remember the Queen's Silver Jubilee very well, and all the parties that seemed to line so many streets at the time. I was still at junior school at the time in 1977 and and each of us pupils were given a large commemorative coin to mark the occasion. It also seems like you caught the tail end of the long hot summer we had in 1976, although only a boy at the time i remember it well. I was also offered the chance over the years to go to France and Italy with my school but my dad would never have left me in the care of school teachers in another country, can't say i blame him! which is why i didn't go. But i'm so pleased you enjoyed your time in England. Take care, and have a great night.

~ANNE - FOR YOUR PRIVACY~
Anne~ nice hearing from you but I suggest that you use my email address rather than an open forum when discussing your personal history and that of your family. Therefore, I have deleted your messages for the safety of your privacy. Catch you later, alligator, have a great week.

~DESIGNATED DRIVER~
Hi Ann ~ sorry it took so long in answering your last message, a very interesting one. Had to deal with the death of my wife's mom and making room for our one granddaughter as she is moving back in with us to start her graduate school here in Indianapolis. She just graduated from Purdue with a Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, with a minor.... She had a tough four years but is very smart and dedicated to her mission in life.
Your hubby gave you a great 50th birthday, good for him! Soon as we were 18 we hit the bars in Cincinnati (back when they served 3.2 beer to 18 year olds) but I never drank beer or alcohol of any kind for good reasons but my buddies all drank and NEVER ridiculed me because they counted on me to get them home safe. Anytime our gang wanted to go blast they'd grab me to be the driver and the bartender always looked weird at me when I ordered a 'straight Coke on the rocks' and that's a true statement. My daughter was a licensed bar tender and working nights, I would stop by the motel bar that she served drinks at and spend time with her at the bar. We had some wonderful talks together and rides on my Harley. She'd set me up with a Coke and patrons probably thought I was a dirty old man drinking rum & coke and flirting with the bartender as my daughter was beautiful and wore shorts at her job. Her boss always thought I was just a customer, ha.
I agree with you about this younger generation and they have no knowledge of WWII or Korea or for that matter, even Vietnam. They have no comprehension of the sacrifices made for the benefits that they enjoy today and that most of this world doesn't have. I think I have to blame that on the schools. I was raised up during WWII and remember the Gold Stars in the windows (two brothers that lived on our small street were killed on the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor) and remember well Korea and so many were killed in that stinking North Korea! I do not even want to discuss Vietnam and the other wars we've been involved in. But, Ann, the YMCA was across the street from my public grade school and the YMCA had an indoor rifle range and with a note from my parents and $.50 cents I would spend an hour shooting a .22 Savage Target rifle at the range and nobody was up tight about guns, after all, it was the M1, the .30 caliber Carbine, the Thompson sub-machine gun, the BAR, the 1911 -A1 and even the WWI 1903 Springfield that kept the Nazis and Japs from defeating us. I remember kids bringing in their dads hunting or military weapon for Show and Tell. I personally shot my .22 pistol at the indoor range at John Marshall High School in Indianapolis back in the low 1980's! Now they teach kids that guns are bad , not the criminals that use them - what a crock! If it wasn't for guns we'd be talking in German or Japanese or possibly not alive to talk? Kids today are not getting taught the history they should be and those in charge are not learning from the lessons of history. Well, can you tell where I stand with the Second Amendment to our Constitution that our leaders completely ignore and worse yet, do not support and defend our Constitution as they took an Oath of Office to do. I want to thank you for your support of our veterans and for being a teacher which must be rough at times for you. Back when I was in HS every morning we'd stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance in homeroom class and a student was drawn from a volunteer group of students to say a prayer over the PA system and we considered it an honor to be chosen for that morning's prayer. If there were students that were not Christian, no problem, they simply did not have to participate in the prayer. Well, Ann, that's enough of my rant -ha- but you know where I am coming from... back when things made a lot more sense - dare I say - the good old days? Catch ya later, alligator, after while crocodile - Tom

RE: Your Message To Bert Lahr- in TWofOZ, I LOVE him, also!
Hello Anne, Thank you for taking the time to read and reply to the message I left for Mr. Lahr. I enjoyed reading your reply. I feel exactly the same way. When I'm feeling down, I know I can always watch Bert and the laughter will ease my sadness. May he know just how much he is loved and appreciated. Thanks again. :)

RE: Reply to Your Mesage,and God Bless You, Always!
Anne~thanks for the reply and HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I remember when I was a kid I couldn't wait to be 13 and a 'teenager'! Then I couldn't wait to be 16 to get my driver's license... Then couldn't wait to be 18 to join the service without my parents permission and did join! And then to be 21 to go to bars (I always drank Cokes when my buddies all drank alcohol) and then I couldn't wait to be 25 so my car insurance cost would go down and that was the last time I wanted to be older but sure wish I was 50 again-ha! Bette Davis said, "getting old isn't for sissies", she got that right! HAPPY 50th birthday, Anne.

~~Frances Farmer~~
Anne - thank you for your kind note and I am glad that you were able to visit her resting place. The first time I went to the cemetery to visit her I went to the newer mausoleum first and searched the entire inside and didn't find her there and I leaned up against the wall and had my hand against the wall and looked and my hand was on the tomb of my old boss! That was a shock! I worked for him three different times over the years! But, I did find Frances in the other mausoleum and placed a small flag in her vase. I did, just several years before she died, sit next to her at a bar (a PAL Club celebrity fund raiser event) and though she didn't seem to want to be friendly I couldn't help but notice how beautiful she was even with a few lines in her face showing her age, she was gorgeous! I wished that I had said "hello" to her but I could tell she wanted to be left alone with her drink and I respected that. Also, I met Dan Blocker (Hoss on Bonanza) and he was such a friendly, great guy and just like he was on TV. He had a beautiful young wife and he was so down to earth! And I met MacDonald Carey, too! Remember him? Happy 4th of July - God bless our women and men in uniform.

RE: Your Beautiful Happy Easter to Bob Hope
Dear Anne,
Thank you for your kind note. It's nice to know that there are still people out there (besides myself, my family, and church) who celegrate Easter!

I'm glad you liked the graphic I left for Bob Hope. To save it to your Find A Grave scrapebook, just left click on the image, then click "save to my scrapebook." That's how I've gotten most of my images. It seems other people are much beter at finding them than I am.

I had to do it a couple of time before I got the hang of it! I hope this helps.

Thank you again for contacting me and if thee is anything else I can help you with, don't hesitate to ask. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Dear Anne,
I was visiting darling Vivien Leigh's memorial and saw your sweet note to her. I see you share the same disorder, and just want you to know that I have many friends who have this also. They are some of the most talented and loving people that I could have in my life. I am blessed by them and I'm sure your friends are by you. Blessings and love to you dear Anne.

Sincerely,
