Lieutenant John Moore
The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg, 1863.

It is past twelve Bernie and that means that for the next three months you will be a year older than I am!
As usual at this time of day you and that bad cat of yours, Shopper are sawing logs. I am making this post especially for you and tomorrow, I will watch you as you read it.
After Gospel meeting Rachel will be giving you a birthday party and I will take lots of pictures.
Do you remember Bernie that when we were going out together all the squabbles we got into?
This is our song in more ways than one, eh?
We would listen to it over and over again.
You will be surprised that I found it on "You Tube".
This looks like one of the days that we were getting along!
Now you know that Mom Golden warned you all about my being spoiled but you did not heed her warning!
Oh the beauty of it those days when I was behaving myself and we were happy but you know SOMETIMES it was your fault my little birthday boy!
Remember all of the quarters that we spent at Woolworth's' taking all those pictures?
Well this one I do believe caught us right in action arguing about something..Ha!! Who knows about what? You left the camera shoot..And me? Well, I certainly did not want to waste a quarter so I stuck right in there!
Later on that day you went back to the photo booth and I guess this was your way of saying you were sorry!!
And this was too.
Ah!! Weren't they just the good old days, eh Bernie? Because no matter what... through thick and thin you have stood by me and that is why I am wishing you a very Happy Birthday!! It hasn't been a bad 37 years knowing ya'!...Love Terry
