Hi, I'm Gene Temple, I used to be in a band with the former Wendy Ard and he=
r brother who played piano. Just wondering where she is and how she is doin=
g after all these years. I also am friends with the former Violet Baham, bo=
th of these friends I haven't seen in twenty odd years. Any info you can pr=
esent me with, or forward will be graciously accepted.
"Geezers"(slang for an old man) are easy to spot:
At sporting events, during the playing of
the National Anthem, Old Geezers hold
their caps over their hearts and sing without
embarrassment. They know the words and
believe in them. Old Geezers remember
World War I, the Depression, World
War II, Pearl Harbor,Guadalcanal, Normandy
and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age,
the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age
and the Moon Landing, not to mention Vietnam.
If you bump into an Old Geezer on the sidewalk,
he will apologize. If you pass an Old Geezer
on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a
lady. Old Geezers trust strangers and are
courtly to women. Old Geezers hold the door
for the next person and always, when walking,
make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
Old Geezers get embarrassed if someone curses
in front of women and children and they don't like
any filth on TV or in movies. Old Geezers have
moral courage. They seldom brag unless it's
about their grandchildren.
It's the Old Geezers who know our great country
is protected, not by politicians or police, but by
the young men and women in the military serving their country.
This country needs Old Geezers with their decent
values. We need them now more than ever.
Thank God for Old Geezers!
Pass this on to all the Old Geezers you know

Area Civil War Participation to be Topic of March Meeting of
the Washington Parish Genealogy and History Society
Reggie Simmons, Franklinton attorney and local student of the Civil War, will
be the speaker for the next meeting of the Genealogy and History group. A
sought-after speaker, Mr. Simmons has presented programs for various
organizations on this topic.
Every year, he teaches Civil War and other history subjects for the Command
and General Staff college. This schooling takes approximately 2 years and is
taught in four phases for the military. The education/training is required
before an officer can become a full colonel. Participants represent the Army
and the Marines, including those in active duty and in the reserves or
National Guard. This military training is the equivalent of a Master's
program in a college. The four phases of training are taught alternately in
various places in Louisiana and in Leavenworth, KS.
Mr. Simmons' presentation will include information on the Battle of Port
Hudson plus other wartime activities in the area. He will bring with him
some authentic Civil War weapons and reproduction uniforms and equipment.
The time of his Civil war Presentation is 5:30 at the Franklinton branch of
the Washington Parish Library. The date is Tuesday, March 12, 2002.
The public is invited to participate in this meeting. It is being sponsored
by the Washington Parish Genealogy and History Society.
