I never thought the comment "I wouldn't touch him/her with a six-foot pole" would become a national policy, but here we are!

If you wear your jeans for 5 days in a row, they become all baggy and it looks like you're losing weight. Stay tuned for more quarantine life pro tips. angel

It's not a rock n' roll classic and it's not Playing for Change but it's an amazing message of how working together is what will get us through this.

Day 196 of quarantine. We all played rock-paper-scissors as kids. What happens when the quarantine meets adults who are bored out of their skulls? Answer: The best game of R-P-S in Russian!

For those Rebels who are quarantined at home in a state other than California this is how many of the women here are coping.

Greg Cook

I'm thankful each day I wake up and get another day on the green side of the grass.

Linda Wonn (Carpenter)

Thank you Greg. This is delightful and yes, it is all about perspective! Stay safe and well.

Jerry Labuda

Thanks Greg, I always did like green, now I know why.

Greg Cook

You're welcome. The view from the green side is always better!

A good Memorial Day to all.  In honor of the holiday, I'm putting out my list of war films that were good enough to still be etched in my consciousness.  This is not a "ten best" list as the arena is so vast and ultimately the decision as to what to include is very subjective and personal.  Candidly there are several notable movies set in Vietnam that I have never seen and may not for various reasons.  Vietnam was our generation's major conflict and there is no way to sufficiently thank the classmates who served for their dedication, courage, and sacrifice in that war.  The two Vietnam films I did include are Go Tell the Spartans and We Were Soldiers.  

  • Paths of Glory
  • The Longest Day
  • Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo
  • The Steel Helmet
  • Patton
  • Bridge Over the River Kwai
  • Go Tell the Spartans
  • Gettysburg
  • Gallipoli
  • We Were Soldiers

Mitch Wise

I would include Glory and The Patriot  

 


05/26/20 09:01 AM #1398    

 

Charlie Groh

Mike, you forgot "Kelly's Heroes"!!!  I'd add A Pack of Lips Now just for the contrast with reality, Saving Pvt Ryan if anything just for the landing scenes...


05/26/20 09:04 AM #1399    

 

Greg Cook

Mike you hit me in my sweet spot.

In Harms Way (John Wayne)

Sands of Iwo Jima (John Wayne)

M*A*S*H

Apocalypse Now

Full Metal Jacket

Green Berets

Heartbreak Ridge

For our Navy Vets:

Midway

Run Silent, Run Deep

30 Seconds over Tokyo

I think I might have used up my character limit on this one and I'm sure I'll remember others as soon as I hit the submit button.


05/26/20 11:37 AM #1400    

 

Linda Wonn (Carpenter)

All good choices but for the impact of war, how about  The Best Years of Our Lives, the first major film to feature a double amputee from World War II. 


05/26/20 11:52 AM #1401    

 

Bobbie Bechtold (Ryan)

And I'll add From Here to Eternity and Good Morning, Vietnam. 


05/28/20 10:45 AM #1402    

 

Michael Elliott

Wow.  Great additions folks!  Charlie, I  just watched The Battle of the Bulge on TCM.  Movie wasn't great but Telly Savalas as a Sherman tank operator was outstanding, as always.  TCM followed this up with The Dirty Dozen.

A Senior's Version of Facebook:
For those of my generation who do not, and cannot, comprehend why Facebook exists, I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles.
Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom.
I give them pictures of my family, my dog and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landmarks, driving around town, having lunch, and doing what anybody and everybody does every day.
I also listen to their conversations, give them "thumbs up" and tell them I "like" them.
And it works just like Facebook. I already have four people following me: two police officers, a private investigator, and a psychologist.

Where's the like button Greg?

Linda Marks (Bird)

Hilarious! I really needed a good laugh. Too much stress in my life right now.

06/15/20 11:38 AM #1408    

 

Debby Lahr

That is great.  I can just picture it.  Thank you.  As Linda said, I too can use a good laugh at this time.

Jerry Labuda

Can't believe it's been 55 years this month since we graduated from high school. Where did the years go. Congratulations to all my fellow Rebels out there for making it this far. I know that we're still under "social distancing", but some of us are getting together next Tuesday, June 30th at 9:30 AM at the Keno's on LaPalma just West of Magnolia for our monthly breakfasts to commemorate our 55 years. Keno's told us that we will be ready for our group to get together. Come join us and don't forget to bring your face masks. Hope to see you there.

Debby Lahr

Would love to be there.  Maybe one of these days Maxine Woolsey and I will come down from Oregon and Idaho, to see her sister, and can join you.
