Rich’s Note:   I really like the new quarters with pictures on the backs
honoring individual states. There are six of them so far and I’m putting
away a couple of dollars each in the event we ever have any grandchildren to
pass them along to. So far I like Connecticut best with its Freedom Tree,
followed by Georgia and its peach, then New Jersey. I thought the one with
the stick figure guy was kind of lame, but I shouldn’t say that for fear of
offending someone (like other stick figure guys). Each new release causes
conversation. There are a couple of us at work who are pleased when we’re
the first to get a new state. “Have you seen Massachusetts yet? No? Why it
just so happens I got one last night at the grocery store. Here, take a
look.” There’s nothing like being smug about having a quarter.

you read it. Thanks.)

“We would place the can in the middle of the street right below the
streetlight. This way the person who was "it" had a fighting chance. But
what would happen there would be an onslaught from all directions and the
can would be kicked and on the paved street it would roll for a long way
giving the players time to scramble away.

“Your Kick the Can, sounds like the country kids version of "Tin Can Alley".
We would stack cans, biggest on the bottom, smaller on up till 5 or 6 were
stacked. The "it" person hid their eyes and counted to an agreed upon
number. Everyone else hid. The it person looked for the hiders and called
out each name as one was found. The last person still hid, tried to run in
and kick the cans without being caught and freed the others to hid again.

“Well ---- I was just sent back about 60 years (and I am hardly old). Our
call was, "Ollie, Ollie Oxen, All in Free" What a wonderful time we had
with all ages playing. Gosh, maybe they were really, "the good old days."

“What a refreshing glimpse of my childhood. During WWII when I was a VERY
SMALL child---the children of all ages from our neighborhood would gather at
the corner where we lived to play "Kick The Can" "Red Rover, Red Rover" and
a host of other games, long forgotten. Upon reading your Kick The Can
segment, I sat here remembering those wonderful friends and wondering where
in the world they had scattered.”

Another Note from Rich:   I received the following email yesterday.
Basically, it is a request for “large,” easy to assemble recipes that will
serve many people at a time. If you have such recipes, please send them to
Joyto-@aol.com   Why does she want such recipes? Just read the following.

Dear Rich.
As a faithful reader, I have enjoyed the recipes and vignettes of times past
of you and Tim.
I am a mother of 21 children, up until three weeks ago a single parent. My
children for the most part have been adopted with the sprinkling of three
biological children to make things interesting. Some children are mentally
or physically challenged, some children, outcasted by their cultures because
the biological parents couldn't provide a safe haven, some are terminally
ill. No matter, they have come and been accepted here and given dignity,
love, nurturing, and tender care, each aspiring to meet this or her
Last year, I met a wonderful man. By profession, (yes, I still have to
I am a Private Investigator, in the course of working I met David, a Public
Defender, Attorney, Crusader au Natural. We fell in love, were married and
are in the process of blending his home with our home. My children and I
be leaving our home here in Florida, to join Dave and his children in
Tennessee, hopefully by the end of March.
This move encompasses locating a bus or vehicle large enough to transport
of us (our other one is beyond fixing)...Selling my house, (which I did
earlier this week!!!!!!)..separating what goes…what stays....gathering
educational and medical records…soothing fears of the unknown...keeping
current of the progress that is being made on the new addition in the new
home...and endless other things which if I thought about I would shudder.
Most people couldn't even begin to comprehend the number of children, let
alone a move of 1150 miles to a new environment. For us, it has been an
exciting time!!! We are the new generation with the spirit of the folks of
yester year making the trip across country.
I would like to ask you and your staff to help us by checking the archives
for large, easy to assemble type meals, so that I may put them in a recipe
folder and have an updated menu to choose from, thus, insuring hectic days,
become calmer, as we meet and feed others who help get us settled along the

Do you remember?

He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother

The Hollies
Written by B. Scott and B. Russell

The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother...
