Hey, Connie.

(HUGS)

Bill is snowed in right now in Idaho. He's also recovering from his pacemaker surgery. I've shipped him a disk of all our Federalist/Anti-Federalist material after standardizing it. We changed style quite a bit over the course of the project. Now we'll see what we can do with it.

It's been a good week in that we now have royalties totaling in three figures! If you count the two figures to the right of the decimal point, it's five figures! I've been figuring out my taxes.

I have some good stuff for tonight. A trip down Memory lane.

FIFTY YEARS AGO TODAY

Where were you 50 years ago today, Baby Boomers? I was in my sophomore year at a third-rate Catholic prep school in New Jersey that fancied itself first-rate. I was reading The Conscience of a Conservative, “The Federalist Papers” and Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged – after the class bully, who sat behind me, hit me over the head with it. It made an immediate first impression – on my skull. .

Where were you? Smoking in the boys’ room? Hiding in the bathroom with a copy of “Playboy”? Gearing up for a visit in the military to some little place in Southeast Asia?

The big hubbub in music those days came from England. The Beatles, who had been a major group for two years across the pond, brought their music to America. Paul McCartney was a fresh voice, a songwriter in the caliber of Franz Schubert, George Gershwin and Richard Rodgers, and his first backup band featured some monumental talents. They made their first splash, and then soon after, three years worth of songs were released by Capitol Records and a variety of other labels who cashed in during the resulting chaos of conflicting copyright claims. What could be fresher and more innocent than wanting to hold a girl’s hand? That guitar riff that opens the song sets the table perfectly for what comes; it grabs your attention.

The Beatles: “I Want to Hold Your Hand’

The other side was a bit harder, with references to Elvis and Chuck Berry.

The Beatles: “I Saw Her Standing There”

M/Sgt. Vito R. Bertoldo, USA, (MOH)



M/SGT. VITO R. BERTOLDO, USA, (MOH), Company A, 242d Infantry, 42d Infantry Division, at Hatten, France, 9-10 January 1945

"He fought with extreme gallantry while guarding 2 command posts against the assault of powerful infantry and armored forces which had overrun the battalion’s main line of resistance. On the close approach of enemy soldiers, he left the protection of the building he defended and set up his gun in the street, there to remain for almost 12 hours driving back attacks while in full view of his adversaries and completely exposed to 88-mm., machinegun and small-arms fire. He moved back inside the command post, strapped his machinegun to a table and covered the main approach to the building by firing through a window, remaining steadfast even in the face of 88-mm. fire from tanks only 75 yards away. One shell blasted him across the room, but he returned to his weapon. When 2 enemy personnel carriers led by a tank moved toward his position, he calmly waited for the troops to dismount and then, with the tank firing directly at him, leaned out of the window and mowed down the entire group of more than 20 Germans. Some time later, removal of the command post to another building was ordered. M/Sgt. Bertoldo voluntarily remained behind, covering the withdrawal of his comrades and maintaining his stand all night. In the morning he carried his machinegun to an adjacent building used as the command post of another battalion and began a day-long defense of that position. He broke up a heavy attack, launched by a self-propelled 88-mm. gun covered by a tank and about 15 infantrymen. Soon afterward another 88-mm. weapon moved up to within a few feet of his position, and, placing the muzzle of its gun almost inside the building, fired into the room, knocking him down and seriously wounding others. An American bazooka team set the German weapon afire, and M/Sgt. Bertoldo went back to his machinegun dazed as he was and killed several of the hostile troops as they attempted to withdraw. It was decided to evacuate the command post under the cover of darkness, but before the plan could be put into operation the enemy began an intensive assault supported by fire from their tanks and heavy guns. Disregarding the devastating barrage, he remained at his post and hurled white phosphorous grenades into the advancing enemy troops until they broke and retreated. A tank less than 50 yards away fired at his stronghold, destroyed the machinegun and blew him across the room again but he once more returned to the bitter fight and, with a rifle, single-handedly covered the withdrawal of his fellow soldiers when the post was finally abandoned. With inspiring bravery and intrepidity M/Sgt. Bertoldo withstood the attack of vastly superior forces for more than 48 hours without rest or relief, time after time escaping death only by the slightest margin while killing at least 40 hostile soldiers and wounding many more during his grim battle against the enemy hordes."

Hello Troops, Alphas, Leos, FR Canteeners, and Lurkers.

Hope you all are doing well and staying safe.

I’m not posting music videos tonight because I ran out of time. My husband and I are painting the family room/living room. My husband [what a saint] is doing the painting and I’m the creative designer. Always interesting. [Do you know how many color choices are possible? It’s like being in a good deli — way too many choices.]

Anyway, I’ll be back with music vids and special sites next Friday.

You’re always in luck though, because our fellow DJs always post great stuff on this thread.

God bless you all.

Cindy

When I became music director of my college radio station in Philadelphia in 1966, I found I had a talent for picking hits by artists that nobody had ever heard of. “Friday on My Mind” was one of my very first picks.

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."

Many Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."

When I first started posting to the FReeper Canteen (brought onboard and inspired by FReeper FRiend ACAD, around 2001 when it was still The USO Canteen I believe & Mojo was our thread mistress), “Friday on My Mind” used to be my opener every week. A few years later, I changed it to "Let It Roll" by Little Feat and along the way I've tried a few others, but eventually the tradition faded. But, since I's going old school this weekend I figured I should regress to my roots. :)

One of these weekends, I should post some of the songs I picked that made it — and some that didn’t make it. I’ve found a lot of them on YouTube, and some of those failures still sound great, at least to me.

LOL! That was part of it. He was all about high and tight then. :) (Hair, that is!)

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...making any headway in the ice skating rink problem? Hope the weekend gets it gone.

In the meantime, stay safe and use your spikes.

Thanks Kathy.

Gotta go fix dinner, but will be back later tonight to listen to all the tunes posted here.

Yep, a test of a good strong marriage and old age are these remodeling projects.

Have a good evening everyone.

FIFTY YEARS AGO TODAY

The year 1964 was the one big year for Al Hirt, one of the great trumpet players of his era. This tune made it to #78 on its second week on the charts.

Al Hirt: ”Java”
