Pearls of Time We take a mi'nute grain of sand (moment) Build each day, As does the NAK'ARA - creating precious Layers of nacre - (mother of pearl) The clock ticks, time seems forever- Moments and time seem forever - Incidents pass, some insig- nificant, Some special, But each important in the building, Then are finished. You can ... or you do not. No matter, for time never moves Backward, only forward, Time is not for wasting, Or regrets, it is for doing It is for feeling - it is the now, That colors your after- wards, And your memories - And if you add wisely to Each moment - You have a string of Priceless pearls. To Allissa (granddaugh- ter) Kathleen Johnson 1- 25-95 *** Do you think often of our national flag - the stars and stripes? Does it have a special meaning for you? Does it bother you to see it tattered and tom?

There's thousands flying in America, along with those on foreign shores and faraway places. Let us not be remiss in its caretaking when we are able and in a position to. This can be a great Project for Home Demonstration Clubs, 4-H Clubs, in the respective communities, also churches, any orga- nized group. Check your community's places of flags. Keep tabs on your flags on a regular basis. Take turns, the clubs could then be sure they were mended. Thread isn't as expensive as new flags. Have a designated work time to get them back into shape. It's cheaper than always purchasing new flags. Our nation has at least 130 National Cemeteries. That is besides other places that our flag flies. Constant exposure to the elements weakens thread and fabric and requires constant mending or at least peri- odic mending and care. There are people who are banding together helping each other to achieve this special work. Think about it. Bless you! Pray about it. It will make you and your gang feel real proud. *** Shall we learn a little more about Oklahoma you didn't know? Well, Okla- homa State University has the largest student union in the nation. Oklahoma's current governor, Brad Henry, is the youngest governor (40) serving in the country. Oklahoma's current Lt. Governor is Jari Askins. The current state flag was designed by Louise Fluke of Ponca City and adopted in 1925. The state flag is an Osage war- rior shield on a field of blue crossed by a peace pipe and olive branch. The star on the State Seal has five rays depicting symbols of the Five Civilized Tribes. The Five Civilized Tribes attempted statehood in 1905 under the name Sequoyah. There are 39 tribes and nations of American Indians with headquarters in Oklahoma. One of America's more honored Indians, Sequoyah, lived near Sallisaw. *** We always serve snacks, so graciously served by Geraldine and Wayne Allen and Leroy & Eva Gibson, our illustrious secretary-treasurer and president.

Difficulties with English For some time now, I've thought about trying to leam a little Spanish. That shouldn't be too hard, but I just keep having friends translate for me when I need to read some- thing written in that orderly language, Each time I do this I am reminded how difficult it is for people from other coun- fries to learn English: Rules for spelling in English make no sense. Let me give you some examples: The ban- dage was wound around the wound. The farm was used to produce produce. The dump was so fun that it had to refuse more refuse. We must polish the Polish furniture. He could lead if he would get the lead out. The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the,present. A bass was painted on the head of the bass dram. When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes. I did not object to the object. The insurance was invalid for the invalid. There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row. They were too close to the door to close it. The buck does funny things when the does am present. A seam- stress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line. To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow. The wind was too strong to wind the sail. After a number of injections my jaw got number. Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear. I had to subject the subject to a series of tests. How can I intimate this to my intimate friend? English wording, and language in general, is not logical either. For example, there is no egg in eggplant, ham in hamburger, or apple or pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats am can- dies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, am meat. There am paradoxes too. Quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings am square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it apig. Why is it that writers write, but fingers don't ring, grocers don't groce and ham- mers don't ham? The plural of tooth is teeth, so why isn't the plural of booth beeth? One is a goose while two am geese, so why one moose and not two meese? If you can make amends, why can't you make one amend? If you get rid of all of your odds and ends but one, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a veg- etarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Why do we ship by track and send cargo by ship? Why do we have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance mean the same thing while a wise man and a wise guy am opposites? When your house bums up it bums down. When you fill in a form you fill it out. An alarm goes offby going on. When the stars am out they am visible, but when the lights am out they am invisible. The fact that people, not computers, invented the English language reflects the creativity of the human race, which of course is not a race at all. Now, would it be easier to learn Spanish? P. S. And why doesn't Buick rhyme with quick? Sadie Needs A Home This is Sadie; she is an adult smaller black lab mix with a semi cropped tail: She has beautiful expressive eyesand a lovely smile. Sadie always seems to have her tongue hanging out of her mouth in that famous half smile of hers. It's hard to resist a dog as sweet and fun loving as Sadie. tf you would like to come out and see her for yourself you can check her out Monday thru Friday 8am to 5pm.
