Here it is the 1st Issue of Volume 12 of The OkieLegacy for 2010! How time flies! We are slowly recuperating from the Holidays here in SW Colorado and still kind of on vacation. So ... this week's newsletter might be a bit short. It has been chilly, cold and sunny most of those days. We did add another 3 inches of snow a few days ago, though. BUT ... most of those days were sunny before and after. We hope here at The OkieLegacy that you had a safe and enjoyable New Years gathering and wish you all the best for this coming new year 2010!
My friend Ruff's human counter part took some photos of Vallecito Lake from the dam a few days ago and we took five of those photos and connected them into this panorama view of the lake and San Juan mountains in the background.
This morning NW Okie took some movie clips of a couple of bucks going at it with antlers entangled between a two-point and a three-point buck here in our backyard, North of Bayfield, Colorado. After a few minutes of entanglements of the two, the three-point buck was the first to back off and walk away.
We heard from a descendant of another 1937-1939 Kemper Military student this last week. It is a small world with this media, isn't it?
NOW ... I need to look back through Uncle Bob McGill's old Kemper Military photos and album and see if he crossed path with Clyde W. Garrett. Meanwhile ... You can view some of Uncle Bob's Kemper classmates and Kentucky University classmates by Clicking HERE.
SBW says, "READABILITY The single best tech idea of 2009, though, the real life-changer, has got to be Readability. It?s a free button for your Web browser?s toolbar (get it at lab.arc90.com/experiments/readability). When you click it, Readability eliminates everything from the Web page you?re reading except the text and photos. No ads, blinking, links, banners, promos or anything else. Times Square just goes away.
You wind up with a simple, magazine-like layout, presented in a beautiful font and size (your choice) against a white or off-white background with none of this red-text-against-black business.
Roy in Perry says December 31, 2009, "This past week, our blizzard dumped more snow on Oklahoma City than ever before. Today they said it was only twelve and a half inches instead of the 13 they had claimed earlier, but our wind was so strong at the same time that I thought I was going to lose one of the massive wooden gates I have at the shop. Let's see if I can attach a couple of older pictures to this piece.
There are two large gates behind that sign (that's painted on four sheets of 4'x8' exterior 5/8:" plywood, and the gate farthest from the front door of the shop was leaning towards the street at a very steep angle because of the force of the north wind that day. Today, most of the snow is gone and it was calm so I added another chain to those gates to hold them closer at the top.
"I'm watching "The Piano Hour" on one of our PBS stations and they just played "Basin Street Blues" and are now showing older scenes of New Orleans and playing various New Orleans jazz tunes. It's fantastic!"
Dan Garrett(email: email@example.com) states, "My Dad attended Kemper Military Academy in the late 30's (37-39 I believe). His name was Clyde W. Garrett from Eastland,Texas. He was the son of the U.S. Congressman Clyde L. Garrett.
"My Dad was the fullback on the unbeaten Kemper football squads during these years. I have several photos of him at Kemper, write ups on their games from the Booneville paper, and his football letter.
