  3. BTW today is the 28th anniversary of our 9th Corps graduation. Whoppee! Chuck reminded me of that today. It's easy to remember because our 28th wedding anniversary is the 16th.
  4. Wow niKa, Congratulations! I'm so happy for you. I haven't been at the cafe in a while and haven't commented on anything here in an even greater while, but this is definitely comment-worthy! God is good!

    I was in 1st grade (5ys. old, almost 6) at St. Christopher's Catholic School in Metairie, LA. I remember the principal came over the intercom and told us the President had been shot and told us to pray. Then a short time later she came back on and said he was dead.
  6. You got it! Quotes are from Little House on the Prairie.
  7. You got it. The quote is the opening paragraph from Rawlinson's translation of The Histories of Herodotus, written in 440 B.C. Herodotus is known as the Father of History.
  8. Pretty funny stuff, I'll take a "shot in the dark" and say Will Rogers. BTW: George how are you doing? Are you in the Houston area? I hope and pray everything is ok with you and yours.
  9. Now I See, I think you should post the next clue...
  10. What a great story Excie, thanks for sharing it! I'm sure it was God working in you.
  11. That's right! The 1st poem is (of course) named Lochnivar from Canto V of Marmion. The 2nd poem is the Troubadour. The 1st novel quote is from Ivanhoe and the 2nd is the last paragraphs of Rob Roy. You're up BFH... Edited to add that I found the novel Rob Roy to be completely different from the movie Rob Roy. I guess they're based on the same character, but there didn't seem to be much similarity between the two.
  12. Here's a quote from one of his prose works:
  13. no not Burns, but a fellow countryman.
