I've been there before, and it is gorgeous, Richard! I love Rose's and have 22 in my yard.

Thanks for the photos Richard and Mitch, it's great to see the beautiful gardens and high school friends. It's breakfast time again everyone. We're meeting at the Keno's restaurant at 2661 LaPalma near Magnolia in Anaheim on Tuesday August 27th at 9:30 AM. Come on down and have some fun with the rest of us.

Thank you for the pictures Richard and Mitch. Those roses are gorgeous! I have never visited those gardens but will put them on my list. I have a school meeting tomorrow Jerry but will make the one in October.

Happy Monday everyone!

Thanks for the positive feedback about the rose garden photos.  A visit to a peaceful garden can provide a bit of welcome serenity.  The fragrance of roses can certainly be mood altering.  I have read that rose plants were among the few precious belongings that some of the pioneers brought on the Oregon trail as they traveled from St. Louis to the Willamette Valley in Oregon.  Even back in the 1800s, the settlers coming to Oregon wanted to build beautiful gardens in their new homes.

That is very true, Richard. Butler Sturtevant, an early American Laddscape architect, certainly believed this for it was he who designed the rose gardens  for Jennie Butchart. Never underestimate the power of flowers to soothe amd heal. :)

I've been doing some rose work lately and have come to the realization that the subject is a black hole.  Haha...after my first foray I ended up at the Fullerton Aboretum and found proper names and I'm googling!  Ahhhhhhhhhh!

With all this talk of rose gardens, thanks, Charlie, for a stroll through the roses! Of course, I continue to follow your photography on Facebook, too.

Please do not Google or check with Snopes. They will lie to you.
In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a healthy young wife by the name of Dorothy. And Dot Com was a comely woman, large of breast, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.
And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?"
And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"
And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. The sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."
Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.
To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew to the People (HTTP).
And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS. And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. Indeed he did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.
And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others." And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or eBay as it came to be known. He said, "We need a name that reflects what we are."
And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators." "YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com.
Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside.
It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).
That is how it all began. And that's the truth! You can't make this stuff up!

Another great "reunion-reunion" last night for multi-class Rebels. Looking forward to next year, hopefully, more 65ers will join us.

Your best post to date.  Enjoyed your creative writing.  Must have taken hours of research.

Jerry Labuda

Great story Greg. We did have a great time at the reunion-reunion.

Greg Cook

Thanks, MItch but I can't take author credit. I just like sharing things that are cleverly written. Glad you enjoy it.

Thanks, Jerry always good to see you. Looking forward to golf at Dad Miller on the 22nd

Kind of having a bit of fun.  Regardless you found/posted a great piece.  Your only issue, VP Gore is opening a slander suit against you.  Remember. He invented the Internet.

This is what we who are aged 70 or 80 years plus, can look forward to. This is something that happened at an assisted living center.
The people who lived there had small apartments, but they all ate at a central cafeteria. One morning one of the residents didn't show up for breakfast so my wife went upstairs and knocked on his door to see if everything was OK. She could hear him through the door and he said that he was running late and would be down shortly, so she went back to the dining area.
An hour later he still hadn't arrived, so she went back up towards his room, but found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs but was having a hard time. He had a death grip on the hand rail and seemed to have trouble getting his legs to work right.
She told him she was going to call an ambulance, but he told her no, he wasn't in any pain and just wanted to have his breakfast. So, she helped him the rest of the way down the stairs and he had his breakfast.
When he tried to return to his room, he was completely unable to get up even the first stair step, so they called an ambulance for him.
A couple of hours later she called the hospital to see how he was doing. The receptionist there said he was fine, he just had both of his legs in one side of his boxer shorts.
I'm sending this to my children so that they don't sell the house before they know all the facts.

Thanks Mitch, I'll keep an eye out for the Gore process server.

On a lighter note!

As I get older I find myself thinking about the strangest things: The only thing scarier than finding extraterrestrial alien life on another planet would be to find other humans on another planet.

Jerry Labuda

Hello everyone, It's that time again, time to have breakfast with your fellow Rebels. We're meeting at the Keno's restaurant at 2661 LaPalma just west of Magnolia at 9:30 AM on Tuesday October 29th. Come and join the fun. Hope to see you there.

Linda Wonn (Carpenter)

Hi Jerry,

If my handyman finishes soon enough I will join you. Your breakfast get togethers are so much fun!

Greg Cook

I couldn't make Jerry's monthly breakfast but I came up with another fun idea: "Right before I die, I'm going to swallow a bag of popcorn kernels. My cremation is going to be epic."
