In 1944 on this day in early afternoon I was in high school study hall period it was an scheduled study period Mrs Conway Geometry Teacher who was acting as monitor of the period, She rose and asked all present to stand and say a silent prayer for our troops who are landing in Normandy France to free Europe from Nazi control. We somberly complied . We did not know it was the beginning of the end of the WW 2 war in Europe No one did any studying afterward

Dick - you did notice the 4th, a Friday this year, was the same day of the calendar in 1954. Interesting it has taken 67 years for the 2021 calendar to be the same as the year we graduated. Might be tough to include that next year

When I watched the VP's graduation speech I recalled our big and last day at Navy and remembered that while the speech was underway I was totally abstracted with thoughts about getting back to the room,getting my belongings and making it downtown to where my new Chevy was parked and heading for home. I suspect the same situation applied to the recent graduation ceremony!

All: If I'd thought for a bit, I might have done a Pome for our 67th, which does coincide with the date and day of the week. But there's always next year. Best wishes to all survivors.

I celebrated two events yesterday. Graduation and 67th wedding anniversary. My son and oldest daughter helped us celebrate. How many of the original 16 who came out of the chapel that day are still married to the same bride?

67 years ago I shoved everything I owned in the trunk of my Chevy Bel Air and headed for Georgia to be in my roommate's wedding. Today I started a new phase in life when I signed in to Westminster. It'll be a couple days before I actually move in but I sighed the check and paperwork today. Here's a look at the bar in my new home.

So here it is 67 years ago we had a big day and it is almost cocktail time on the east coast . No one has said wow who would have ever thought. Anyway I send all of us survivors the very best and say a prayer for those who were not as fortunate

Ed T: Condolences on your gonk bonk--I've had three, all because of stubbing my toe and doing faceplant on some rough concrete. Rather bloody and quite painful. They were so sudden I didn't even have the reflexes to duck and roll. I'm now very careful on pavements, explanation for shiner is embarrassing.

Good advice, Lach.

Bill, we put in a chairlift when my wife got her severe back problem. A real positive as it really opened up half the house for her. I recommend it. It also became a positive for selling when the buying couple has a similar problem. .No one really wants to give up their independence. In the long run do what is best for your situation after looking at it honestly and impact on both of you and your families.

Problem with big homes they have a hidden obstacle course
and, at our physical state ,we MUST NOT Trip and Fall, this usually causes a head bonk and that is not good. I have tripped and stumbled outside the house doing maintrnance thing in the 3 years since my stroke, it produced the exopected bruises and a couple black eyes, but they all go away in time, and a good flop; can send to the ER (which I avoided ). Its an impediment to growing old gracefully.
The stairs are the big obstacle , and have or get hand railings for them

Bill there are stair lifts to overcome the in house obstacle course called stairs. in many level homes.
they can give you more time and flexability.

Bill, Pete's advice is sound. If you wait until you are "unhealthy" your options as to where you can move become limited based on your problem. Not to mention the load you put on your daughter's household.
Bill Crawford, (14)
07:24 AM ET (US)
That sounds like good advice, guys.
However, if we become unhealthy, we can temporarily move in with my daughter, who lives here in town, until we can relocate.

Bill, I champion Petes advice. Better to find the right place and move while still "healthy" than wait for some debilitating event to force a move. Spend some time, look round and pick what best fits you needs (and importantly your wife).

Bill - You can most always get into a senior living home early, but never late. A extended care facility probably yes, but a continuing care retirement center like I am in you have to pass a number of physical and memory exams. There a a bunch of places around so I believe looking around at our age is not a bad thing to do.

To all my former Naval Academy “Cadet” classmates - Happy Memorial Day and thank you fir your service.

A number of our friends have pressed us to join them in their senior living facilities - but we have resisted. We live about nine miles outside of Spokane on a gorgeous lake and have outstanding neighbors. As long as I have my health and can care for Ebba we are goin to stay where we are! By the way our newbies include a retired Air Force Col with an USAF Academy grad daughter and a family with a son at West Point. All of us have claimed that our short dirt road shoud be rename “Academy Road”.

My wife thinks that we should sell our house and move into a senior living facility.
I maintain that as long as we can comfortably get up and down the stairs in our house, we should stay here.

Congrats on the sale of the house, on to the next life. Down sizing is hard but for most of us, long overdue. Cheers!!

Don't forget to get a scooter to whizz around the corridors. Will be thinking of you.
