"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." Saint Francis De Sales

My Slow Takes About Eutaw Springs, IORB, Ben King and Remembrance.
1. The Virginia Cavaliers squashed the Spiders last weekend. That puts our team at 1-1 for the start of the season.
2. Michigan State was shutout by the Irish Lads 31-0. This is the first time in 30 years. Notre Dame now 2-0 and face Purdue at home this Saturday.
3. On September 8, 1781 Nathanael Greene and his Colonials attacked a British encampment at Eutaw Springs in South Carolina. The British, under Alexander Stewart, had not expected the attack. The battle continued over four hours with intensive fighting and many casualties. Neither side could gain an advantage so finally they both retired. The next day Stewart withdrew to Charleston. Greene had successfully prevented the British from controlling South Carolina.
4. The International Organization of the Red Bandannas (IORB) held a meeting in Duck, N.C. this year. Absent, and missed, were Bill and Tony.
Me, Roger, Dave, Jack & Lou.
5. Support wives for the IORB.
Susan, Brenda, Maureen, Dee & Jeanine
6. “Save the Last Dance for Me” was recorded in 1960 by Ben King and the Drifters. It was a ”US Top 10” hit in 1961 and once again in 1986.
