ROCKUMENTARY: APRIL 20, 1973

Where were you on Friday, April 20, 1973?

I had been moved out of the Motor Pool to take over the Adjutant’s position at battalion HQ thanks to the post-Vietnam RIF’s, which had caused a number of our lifer captains to suddenly become civilians. The Motor Pool had been miles away from HQ, but now I had to deal daily with the CO, who was a by-the-book commander. When I asked him why, he said, “If you go by the book, you’ll never get into trouble.”

On weekends I did my thing at KING in Seattle, where I hung around with the legendary Andy Barber, who later became one of the giants of the game.

Let’s cue the Rockumentary theme!

San Remo Golden Strings: “Festival Time”

Johnny Mathis had made this a hit back in the Fifties. Now it was Donny’s turn. It came in at #10 this week.

Donny Osmond: “The Twelfth of Never”

Wonderfully Made

April 20, 2013

While getting an eye exam recently, my doctor hauled out a piece of equipment that I hadn’t seen before. I asked him what the device was, and he responded, “I’m using it to take a picture of the inside of the back of your eye.”

I was impressed that someone had invented a camera that could do that. But I was even more impressed by what my doctor could learn from that picture. He said, “We can gather a lot of details about your current general health simply by looking at the back of your eye.”

My doctor’s comment amazed me. It is remarkable that a person’s overall health can be measured by the health of the eye. What care the Lord has taken to place these details in the bodies He has created! It immediately brings to my mind the words of David, the psalmist, who reveled in God’s creativity: “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well” (Ps. 139:14).

The enormous complexities of our bodies reflect the genius and wisdom of our great Creator. The wonder of His design is more than breathtaking—it gives us countless reasons to worship Him!

Lord, we are in awe of You! Thank You that You
created us with such complexity and care
and that You know us with such intimacy.
We love You and trust You with our lives.
All life is created by God and bears His autograph.

Read: Psalm 139:13-18

Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. —Psalm 139:14
Bible in a Year:
2 Samuel 9-11; Luke 15:11-32

Welcome To All Who Enter This Canteen, To Our Serving Military, To Our Veterans, To All Military Families, To Our FRiends and To Our Allies!



Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."

This genre of popular music eventually became known as “sex rock” and this man became the first star of that genre. Catch the harpsichord in the intro. It debuted at #72 this week on its way to the Top 10.

According to Wikipedeia: "Funk is a music genre that originated in the mid-late 1960s when African American musicians created a rhythmic, danceable new form of music through a mixture of soul music, jazz, and R&B. Funk de-emphasizes melody and harmony and brings a strong rhythmic groove of electric bass and drums to the foreground. Funk songs are often based on an extended vamp on a single chord, distinguishing it from R&B and soul songs, which are built on chord progressions."

Got it? That foolishness goes on for over 5,000 words trying to put Funk into words. It's not a bad attempt and it's an interesting read, but I was reminded of a Luciano Pavarotti quote: "Learning music by reading about it is like making love by mail."

Anyhow, it got me thinking. All Funk has soul, but not all Soul is Funk. You can't put Funk into words, buckaroos, but I know it when I hear it. So just listen and we'll get funky.

This week has been a horrible roller-coaster ride for the residents of Boston and all across the USA. Greetings & Salutations to the Boys in Blue that tracked down and took out the anti-American garbage hidden amongst them. We send prayers of healing and strength to the many victims of these foreign born jihadi sewer rats.

The Teeny Boppers dominated the AM charts, and this tune was one of the harder edged teen tunes of the period. It came in at #7.

The Sweet: “Little Willy”

Good evening, Kathy!

*HUGS*

The commute went reasonably well - we had a line squall go through the area while I was driving home - extremely heavy rain and we're just now getting off tornado watch.

The daffodils are pretty much over now - irises will be in bloom very soon. My Azalea, which is the only plant that was here when we arrived 24 years ago, did not make it through the winter. I think I'll replace it with a variegated Japanese Andromeda.

I'm cashing it in real soon - very fatigued this evening.

Sylvia Robinson, nee Vanderpool, had been the “Sylvia” of Mickey and Sylvia back in the mid-Fifties. Now she went solo with a sex rock entry, which came in at #30 on its way to the Top 10. I had a gift for mimicry, and I did a wonderful impersonation of Arte Johnson as Tyrone Horneigh in doing talk-ups for this song.

Sylvia: “Pillow Talk”
