EXCUSE me, is there anyone out there who can remember “Myrt and Marge”, a soap vintage 30’s ? My early days were filled with these incredible programs; Helen Trent, Our Gal Sunday, When A Girl Marries, David Harum and of course The Shadow ! My dad and I were Shadow trekkies ! Oh, Lamont Cranston AKA the Shadow “knows what evil lurks in the heart of men”. HaHa, it didn’t take me long to learn that one, I guarantee ! The old wooden Philco with its static and truly lousy reception forced me to learn to fill in the empty spaces and I still do ! I loved my life all those years ago, we were family, we ate together, we sang together, we played together. We lived together ! Lots of joy not much stuff ! And that antiquated Philco on the side table reminds me of a searing memory of a day too many years past when a familiar voice began, “December 7th, 1941, a day that will live in infamy……..and it still does ! Sincerely, Claire B.
To those of you who read my stuff
I’ve no way to thank you enough
It makes me glad to think you care
It’s such a fragile world out there
So filled with loss and grief and pain
I will not come this way again !
Unless of course we have a change,
The present management is strange
I’d like to ask for their recall
Remembering I love you all !
The children that we leave behind
Aft we are gone away to find
That final place wherein we rest
There wait for those who ace the test
Thus be prepared to take the helm
Into their care within their realm !
We need the young to learn the task
And seek restraint within their grasp
To value faith keep God in mind
With open heart and bias blind
Reach out to those who hunger much
Receive God’s care and gentle touch !
