What's Good About Sunglasses
The sun's bright out there
Sunglasses keep the glare out of your eyes
If you're working
Sunglasses'll protect your eyes from
Dust, wood chips, stuff flying around in the air
Even working inside, they'll keep off the dust and black mold
If you're talking to the woman whose
House you're ripping up
The last remnants of whose life
You're piling up on the street for the city to haul away
Take your sunglasses off
So she can look you in the eye
See that you're a human being just like she is
But put them on again when you're through talking
Because the really great thing about sunglasses is
They hide the tears

You were spoken of with great love today, as I lunched with Lynn. We're thinking of you, Tim and I.
Thank you Alan for those days in that SUV. We cried and were sad and helped as many as we could . We found things I dont think were humanly possible. we did our best. Thats what I went to Biloxi for, the best.You are like a friend that I will have forever.Biloxi god bless Biloxi.
Thinking of you, every day. May the circle be unbroken.
