Our Father, F. Roger
Jack of all trades
Master of some
His greatest enjoyment
was work well done
Life cut him short
Before he was through
I guess up in heaven
There's Work to do
Look at his hands Lord
Before Judgement is
They're worn with callous
From work ever done

Woof-N-Poof, as we all very well know, is a
homemade Christmas gift.  How "nice" that
Harvard borrowed this name from our father
to use for it's newspaper.
Thanks for the info, Tony the Trivia Master :-)

5/5/2000  Was the day of
the Grand Planetary
 This alignment  
they claimed would  cause
earthquakes, floods and in
some cases split the planet
in two like a cleaver through
a head of lettuce. Many of
experts and amatures alike
looked forward to this day
with great anticipation.   
Alignments cause gravity,
magnetic fields and tidal
forces to magnify.  Within
the hour after the great
alignment, my father passed

My father admitted to me that he had been a Jerk in his life.
Then laughingly he would add, "Soda Jerk that is"
He worked at Wittig's as a Soda Jerk when he was a teen.

Thanksgiving 1999
My house on Church Street
Dad was so interested in the period of
Revolutionary War.  During the final weeks of his
life, he was reading a book called,
"The Boys of 76"
He wrote on the inside cover,
Please keep this Book. Read it.  It tells a
great deal about the pain and death it took
to form  our country into a starting Nation"  
Dad  (Oaky)  
This book sat next to him in the living room, the
whole month of April 2000.  After he died I sat
down to look at the book that he felt he needed
to read before he died.  This is when I found the
inscription.  Anyone interested in reading it, let
me know.  
Anyway, he would have liked this article too.

Dad had handed me a newspaper article in
1998 which was about Ancestry.com and
said he wish that someone could look up his
family.  Well, 12 years later I finally got around
to it.  I wish I had done it sooner for him.
