Arrow Having my 5th beer and remembered you didn't

Here's a few of my favorite songs (I'm an American but born as an Italian by my Grand-Parents and of course I had to learn Italian and got to know the music. So here's a few
of the most current music songs I've heard over my 75 years/

By the way this is my fifth beer. PBR 6.5 alc (smooth) just left the VFW post 6448 Dyer, IN
A great post - look me up (Boats)

1. Andrea Bocelli, Zucchero - Miserere
Alt: RE: (Alt #326)

2. Andrew Bocelli - Ti Amo (#292) my all time favorite (2013) (#292)

3. Andrew Bocelli - Juarme - (#168) Good beat)

So much for tunes - nobody most likely listens
Have a few beers you will love them!
Seems no one is interested in my music that's OK - I was just thinking of my Grand-Parents
They fought like hell to get to America to give their kids a place where freedom and also
to give them better opportunities not available in Italy at that time.
I was born an American but raised under Italian rules. All my family is gone except for
my wife whose not doing so well. But listening to Italian music I grew up with calms
me. I miss them all - and will until I die. I'm an American raised by Italian's who never
had the freedoms to live their lives until they came to America. They worked hard
and had to lean a new language and be able to fit into an American society and its
wasn't easy. Dago's they called us yet I was born here and still I remember their
struggles to fit into a new society and still carry their Italian up bringing which
was difficult. Plus they lost most of their family members during the wars.
But boy could my Nana cook. As I grew up I married another Italian woman
and she and her Mother were my best friends. And both could cook as well.
My wife doesn't have much time and I'm degrading faster then the VA wants
me too. But that's life. Kath hasn't much time and she's bitter as hell having
to suffer something no one can fix. It's hard for her and 55 years of marriage
is where we are at right now. I can only hope I can live long enough to take
take care of her. She's the best thing that ever came into my life and she's
meaner than hell - that her Italian coming out. But the best woman I was
fortunate enough to say yes to me when I asked her and her family for
permission to marry their daughter. Her Mom & Dad are gone and her
younger sister and brother. Mind are all gone except for my older sister
whose in a nursing home and doesn't know much anything her daughter
died plus her husband and that pushed her over the edge.
I can only suspect my end - its coming but I don't fear it other than to
know who will take care of my wife should I go before her?

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
