Memorial Day Quotes and a Verse...

Memorial Day Quotes and a Verse

"Greater love has no one than this,
that he lay down his life for his friends."
- John 15:13

"Let no vandalism of avarice or neglect, no ravages of time,
testify to the present or to the coming generations, that we
have forgotten, as a people, the cost of a free
and undivided Republic."
-John A. Logan

"The patriot's blood is the seed of Freedom's tree."
- Thomas Campbell

"These heroes are dead. They died for liberty – they died for us.
They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, under the
flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks,
the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the
shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in
the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars -
they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict,
they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for
soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living;
tears for the dead."
- Robert G. Ingersoll

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill,
that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship,
support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and
the success of liberty."
- John F. Kennedy

"The dead soldier's silence sings our national anthem."
- Aaron Kilbourn

"The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that
freedom to their children."
- William Havard

"The purpose of all war is peace."
- St. Augustine

"Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
May the soldier or sailor,
God keep.
On the land or the deep,
Safe in sleep.

Fading light, dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

Thanks and praise, for our days,
'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, neath the sky;
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

Sun has set, shadows come,
Time has fled, Scouts must go to their beds,
Always true to the promise that they made.
While the light fades from sight,
And the stars gleaming rays softly send,
To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend."
- TAPS, words by Union General Dan Butterfield

Joke - The Dress...

The Dress

Jennifer's wedding day was fast approaching. Nothing could
dampen her excitement - not even her parent's nasty divorce.

Her mother found the perfect dress to wear, and would be
the best-dressed mother-of-the-bride ever!

A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father's
new, young wife had bought the exact same dress as her mother!

Jennifer asked her father's wife to exchange it, but she refused.

''Absolutely not! I look like a million bucks in this dress and I'm
wearing it,'' she replied.

Jennifer explained the situation to her mother who graciously
said, ''Never mind, sweetheart. I'll get another dress. After all,
it's your special day.''

A few days later, they went shopping and located another
beautiful dress for her mother.

When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, ''Aren't
you going to return the other dress? You really don't have another
occasion where you could wear it."

Her mother smiled and replied, ''Of course I do, dear. I'm wearing
it to the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding.''

A Funny - BBQ Rules...


We are about to enter the BBQ season. Therefore it is important to
refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking
activity. When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of
events are put into motion:

(1) The woman buys the food.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables,
and makes dessert.
(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along
with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to
the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.
(4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion
zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly
bonding activities can take place without the interference
of the woman.

Here comes the important part:

More routine...
(6) The woman goes inside to organize the plates and cutlery.
(7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great.
He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he
flips the meat.

Important again:

More routine...
(9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins,
sauces, and brings them to the table.

(10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

And most important of all:
(11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS
HIM for his cooking efforts.

(12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed her 'night off', and,
upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's
just no pleasing some women.

A Funny - $2 Bill...

I looked this story up on This was first posted on the net in 1993
by "Captain Sarcastic" who claims the tale is true.

$2 Bill

On my way home from work, I stopped at Taco Bell for a quick bite to eat.
In my billfold are a $50 bill and a $2 bill. I figure that with a $2 bill,
I can get something to eat and not have to worry about anyone getting
irritated at me for trying to break a $50 bill.

Me: "Hi, I'd like one seven-layer burrito please, to go."

Server: "That'll be $1.04. Eat in?"

Me: "No, it's to go."

At this point, I open my billfold and hand him the $2 bill. He looks at it
kind of funny.

Server: "Uh, hang on a sec, I'll be right back."

He goes to talk to his manager, who is still within my earshot. The following
conversation occurs between the two of them:

Server: "Hey, you ever see a $2 bill?"

Manager: "No. A what?"

Server: "A $2 bill. This guy just gave it to me."

Manager: "Ask for something else. There's no such thing as a $2 bill."

Server: "Yeah, thought so."

He comes back to me and says, "We don't take these. Do you have
anything else?"

Me: "Just this fifty. You don't take $2 bills? Why?"

Server: "I don't know."

Me: "See here where it says legal tender?"

Server: "Yeah."

Me: "So, why won't you take it?"

Server: "Well, hang on a sec."

He goes back to his manager, who has been watching me like I'm a shoplifter,
and says to him, "He says I have to take it."

Manager: "Doesn't he have anything else?"

Server: "Yeah, a fifty. I'll get it and you can open the safe and get change."

Manager: "I'm not opening the safe with him in here."

Server: "What should I do?"

Manager: "Tell him to come back later when he has real money."

Server: "I can't tell him that! You tell him."

Manager: "Just tell him."

Server: "No way! This is weird. I'm going in the back."

The manager approaches me and says, "I'm sorry, but we don't take big
bills this time of night."

Me: "It's only seven o'clock! Well then, here's a two dollar bill."

Manager: "We don't take those, either."

Me: "Why not?"

Manager: "I think you know why."

Me: "No, really... tell me why."

Manager: "Please leave before I call mall security."

Me: "Excuse me?"

Manager: "Please leave before I call mall security."

Me: "What on earth for?"

Manager: "Please, sir."

Me: "Uh, go ahead, call them."

Manager: "Would you please just leave?"

Me: "No."

Manager: "Fine -- have it your way then."

Me: "Hey, that's Burger King, isn't it?"

At this point, he backs away from me and calls mall security on the phone
around the corner. I have two people staring at me from the dining area,
and I begin laughing out loud, just for effect. A few minutes later this
45-year-oldish guy comes in.

Guard: "Yeah, Mike, what's up?"

Manager (whispering): "This guy is trying to give me some... (pause) funny

Guard: "No kidding! What?"

Manager: "Get this... a two dollar bill."

Guard (incredulous): "Why would a guy fake a two dollar bill?"

Manager: "I don't know. He's kinda weird. He says the only other thing he
has is a fifty."

Guard: "Oh, so the fifty's fake!"

Manager: "No, the two dollar bill is."

Guard: "Why would he fake a two dollar bill?"

Manager: "I don't know! Can you talk to him, and get him out of here?"

Guard: "Yeah."

The Security Guard walks over to me and...

Guard: "Mike here tells me you have some fake bills you're trying to use."

Me: "Uh, no."

Guard: "Lemme see 'em."

Me: "Why?"

Guard: "Do you want me to get the cops in here?"

At this point I am ready to say, "Sure, please!" but I want to eat, so I say,
"I'm just trying to buy a burrito and pay for it with this two dollar bill."

I put the bill up near his face, and he flinches like I'm taking a swing at him.
He takes the bill, turns it over a few times in his hands, and says, "Hey, Mike,
what's wrong with this bill?"

Manager: "It's fake."

Guard: "It doesn't look fake to me."

Manager: "But it's a two dollar bill."

Guard: "Yeah... ?"

Manager: "Well, there's no such thing, is there?"

The Security Guard and I both look at him like he's an idiot, and it dawns on
the guy that he has no clue.

So, it turns out that my burrito was free, and he threw in a small drink and
some of those cinnamon thingies, too.

Made me want to get a whole stack of two dollar bills just to see what
happens when I try to buy stuff.

If I got the right group of people, I could probably end up in jail. You get
free food there, too!

Joke - Gone Fishing...

Gone Fishing

Alex had a terrible day fishing on the lake. He sat in the blazing sun
all day without a single bite.

On his way home, he stopped at the market and ordered four rainbow

"Pick out four large ones and throw them at me, will you?" he said to
the clerk behind the counter.

"Why do you want me to throw them at you?" asked the clerk.

"So that I am able to tell my wife, in all honesty, that I caught them,"
explained Alex.

"Okay, but I suggest that you take the salmon," said the clerk.

"Why’s that?" asked Alex.

"Because your wife came in earlier today and said if you came by,
I should ask you to pick the salmon. That's what she wants for supper
tonight," he replied with a grin.

Joke - Solitary Confinement...

Solitary Confinement

Three tourists were traveling in South America - an Irishman,
a Frenchman, and a blonde American. They found themselves
in a bar in a small Latin American country that was ruled by a
strict dictator. As luck would have it, they got into an argument
and a bar fight soon started. The local military police arrived
and arrested them.

At their trial before a tribunal, they learned their luck was even
worse than they had thought. The bar was owned by the brother
of the dictator. The three of them were promptly sentenced to
five years in solitary confinement.

Before they were taken away to prison, the judge said, "You are
foreigners to our country. I will grant you each one favor. You may
choose one item to help you pass the time in our prison. What do
you wish for?"

The Irishman asked for a five year's supply of fine Irish whiskey.
The Frenchman asked for a five year's supply of fine French wine.
The blonde American requests a five year's supply of cigarettes.
The judge grants all three requests. The three were led off to
prison and thrown into individual cells down in the dark, damp
basement of the prison.

Five years later they were let out one by one. First the Irishman
was released. He staggered out, drunk, barely able to stand, and
quickly stumbled out of the prison without saying a word. The
Frenchman was released next. He swaggered out, rather drunk
himself, and walked out into freedom. The blonde American was
released last.

He stepped out into freedom and said, "Does anyone have a
#*%$# match?"

Joke - St. Peter's Book...

St. Peter's Book

A man arrives at the Pearly Gates, waiting to be admitted. St. Peter is reading
through the Big Book to see if the guy's name is written in it. After several
minutes, St. Peter closes the book, furrows his brow, and says, "I'm sorry,
I don't see your name written in The Book."

"How current is your copy?" he asks.

"I get a download every ten minutes," St. Peter replies. "Why do you ask?"

"I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I was always the stubborn type. It was not
until my death was imminent that I cried out to God, so my name probably
hasn't arrived to your copy yet."

"I'm glad to hear that," Pete says, "but while we're waiting for the update
to come through, can you tell me about a really good deed that you did in
your life."

The guy thinks for a moment and says, "Hmm, well there was this one time
when I was driving down a road and I saw a giant group of biker gang
members harassing this poor girl. I slowed down, and sure enough, there they
were, about 20 of 'em torturing this poor woman. Infuriated, I got out of my
car, grabbed a tire iron out of my trunk, and walked up to the leader of
the gang.

"He was a huge guy, 6-foot-4 and 260 pounds, with a studded leather jacket
and a chain running from his nose to his ears. As I walked up to the leader,
the bikers formed a circle around me and told me to get lost or I'd be next.
So I ripped the leader's chain out of his face and smashed him over the head
with the tire iron.

"Then I turned around and yelled to the rest of them, "Leave this poor,
innocent girl alone! You're all a bunch of sick, deranged animals! Go home
before I really teach you a lesson in PAIN!'"

St. Peter, duly impressed, says, "Wow! When did this happen?"

"About three minutes ago."

Joke - Limo Driver...

Limo Driver

After getting all of The Pope's luggage loaded into the limo (and he
doesn't travel light), the driver notices that the Pope is still standing
on the curb.

"Excuse me, Your Eminence," says the driver, "would you please take
your seat so we can leave?"

"Well, to tell you the truth," says The Pope, "they never let me drive at
the Vatican, and I'd really like to drive today."

"I'm sorry but I cannot let you do that. I'd lose my job! And what if
something should happen?" protests the driver, wishing he'd never gone
to work that morning.

"There might be something extra in it for you," says The Pope.

Reluctantly, the driver gets in the back as The Pope climbs in behind
the wheel.

The driver quickly regrets his decision when, after exiting the airport,
the Supreme Pontiff floors it, accelerating the limo to 105 mph.

"Please slow down, Your Holiness!!!" pleads the worried driver, but The
Pope keeps the pedal to the metal until they hear sirens.

"Oh my, I'm gonna lose my license," moans the driver.

The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the cop approaches,
but the cop takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and gets
on the radio.

"I need to talk to the Chief," he says to the dispatcher.

The Chief gets on the radio and the cop tells him that he's stopped a limo
going a hundred and five.

"So bust him," said the Chief.

"I don't think we want to do that. He's really important," said the cop.

The Chief exclaimed, "All the more reason!"

"No, I mean really important," said the cop.

The Chief asked, "Who ya got there, the Mayor?"

The cop replied, "Bigger."

The Chief asked, "Governor?"

The cop replied, "Bigger."

"Well," asked the Chief, "Who is it?"

The cop exclaimed, "I think it's God!"

"What makes you think it's God?" asked the Chief.

The cop said, "He's got The Pope for a limo driver!"
