""I was a dumb butt for doing it (going back to Bridgewater College)." And, 

unless my drop dead comes before then, I'll tell you about that tomorrow...."

Well, it's tomorrow, so I'll tell you. Bridgewater College:

1. made me go to chapel. It is a Church of the Brethren related college.

2. fined me for parking in the wrong area on at least one occasion, I was a day

student and had to park somewhere.

3. had an English Literature professor who lost his temper and stomped out of

the classroom after we in the class forgot the name of the author of 'The Raven' 

(Edgar Allen Poe), but I along with my fellow students could not remember it at

the time.

4. had another professor who summoned me out into the hallway and said that 

he did not appreciate me looking out the window when he was lecturing to the 


5. I went out for football and in one of the first practices, I went helmet to helmet

with another player. I was stunned and maybe semi-conscious for a while. A 

concussion. Everyone around just laughed. So I quit. I'm glad I did because I 

might be more befuddled than I am right now.

6. They would not let me graduate if I didn't attend graduation.

Bottom line, very few choices and very few freedoms. I don't remember if they

flew the American Flag while I was there.

After the big car came to a stop, Father turned the ignition key back on and it 

was pedal to metal and off to the races....

I received a postcard yesterday from someone whose home country is England,

but is now living in Japan and teaching English. I have a niece, Holly, who taught

English in China, so I'm some what familiar with that. My message to the sender 

was as follows:


You went to a lot of trouble to have made this postcard of washi paper. 

It's a beautiful postcard and I thank you so much. 

I will mention you (not your name) and both of your countries in my story of 

tomorrow (Nov 13 EDT) on my web site:

Thanks again,

Tips for Eating Out

"Choose foods that are steamed, broiled, baked, roasted, poached, or lightly 

sautéed or stir-fried.

Ask for fat-free or low-fat milk instead of cream for coffee or tea.

Pick food without butter, gravy, or sauces—or ask to have the food without it.

Choose a low-calorie salad dressing.

Ask for salad dressing on the side, and use only some of it.

Pick drinks without added sugar, such as water, fat-free or low-fat milk, 

unsweetened tea, or diet iced tea, lemonade, or soda.

Trim visible fat from poultry or meat.

Don’t eat the skin on cooked chicken or turkey.

Share your meal, or take half home for later.

Skip dessert or order fruit. Or share dessert with a friend."

"According to preliminary data, Iraqi troops and their allies have already 

lost 3,000-3,500 fighters during their offensive on Iraqi city of Mosul.

The storm of the city of Mosul is not so successful: Iraqi troops and their allies 

approach the city from the north and south, but on the eastern outskirts of the 

city the same tendencies remain – it is obviously that the operation failed in 

the form, in which it was being conducted.

According to preliminary data, since the beginning of the operation, the 

coalition, fighting against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, has lost 

about 3,000-3,500 fighters (mainly members of the Iraqi Army and the 

Shia militias), who were killed or wounded in clashes with terrorists, as 

well as 17-22 tanks (T-72, T-62, T-55, Abrams), more than 120 pieces of light 

armored vehicles (infantry fighting vehicles, high mobility multipurpose 

wheeled vehicles (Humvee), mine-resistant ambush protected vehicles 

(MRAP), bulldozers) and an unspecified number of vehicles, equipped 

with machine guns.

Losses of IS terrorists are about 1,500-2,000 killed and wounded, about 15 

armored vehicles and an unspecified number of vehicles, equipped with 

machine guns, and bomb-laden vehicles for suicide attacks.

So, in general, the situation turned out to be like in Fallujah, though there 

was an attempt to avoid this scenario.

A military operation to liberate Mosul from IS terrorists was started in the 

morning of October 17. A few days before the start of the land operation, 

the US-led coalition began to carry out airstrikes.

The IS terrorist group captured Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, in 

June 2014. Reportedly, there are between 5,000 and 6,000 IS terrorists in 

the city."

The weather looks good for seeding the Fall grass seed on Tuesday and 

Wednesday if the weather holds out. I am still delinquent on planting the 

remainder of those flower bulbs, but I'm sure I'll eventually get to it.

I can walk barefoot in the yard until the temperature dips below 30°.

I hate to see the time that's coming when I'll have to wear shoes in the yard.
