Recently, Harriett Eaker Adams threw down the gauntlet to the Hog Hunters to create our own 'Hog Hunter Memories" verses.  In that same email, was a nostalgic poem (click here to see it), apparently a prompt (prod) for us to produce. We did, and the results are presented below.  

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 


First Hunt - 1980


HOG HUNTERS LAMENT

Twenty-one guys, not one who still hunts,
gather each Spring amidst groans and grunts.
Begun in '80, with no more than ten,
We were few in number, with only one chin.

The bar is open but less often used
The card games are shorter, so the hunters can snooze.
Fishing is great, to which most can attest,
But CPAP sleeping is now part of our rest.

The groans from sore muscles, joints, ligaments.
The grunts often accompany disagreeable scents.
But the stories grow better with each passing year,
And the purpose of friendships becomes abundantly clear.

No man is an island, the poets often state.
It's friendships and communion that make a full plate.
And if thinking of others is the real purpose at hand,
Then you've learned the goal of this merry band.

Jokes and stories we tend to repeat,
and its been a decade since we've seen our feet.
We're now in our seventies and way over the hill,
our daily companion is that little blue pill.
Our youthful indiscretions we must not vet,
we're too old to remember--too young to forget.

The Hog bull is good, all colorful and infamous,
It seems that Hunters were once quite villainous.   
Hunters' minds are still sharp, but their bodies are frail,
Adventures now meek and don't include jail.

Alas, the Hogs are safe and today,
no one even looks for their place to play.
Hunters we were, hunters we'll remain,
though our prey changed to glasses, pills, and a cane.

A few will fish, walkabout, or snooze,
while others are busy reducing our booze.
Some play golf, gamble or gab,
But a good time by all, always is had.

These boys, these men, these once Adonii
Now deaf of ear and dim of eye
Who long for those days of long ago
But wouldn't re-start for a ton of dough;
Sure it's not friendships or devotion they lack
They know these guys all have their back.
And will, after all, be the ones they can call
If, in the end, things start to fall.
And fall they will, if the past is prologue
They'll count on the friends who once hunted hogs.

Hence the Hog Hunters gather each beautiful spring
To renew their enthusiasm for this wonderful thing.
Old friends are the best and provide comfort and delight
As these Sons of the Greatest Generation continue life's flight.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



Hog Hunt - 2012


           IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN


The annual HOG HUNT - April 23rd - 26th. 
I am hearing brisket (Abber), chips, dip & potato salad (Reeves), Jim's famous pinto beans, raw oysters (eeew) and grilled shrimp (grilled by Chef Henry). Also mentioned were, "gourmet breakfasts, catered suppers with fried catfish and ribeye steaks.  There is also a list of beverages that will be provided...you don't want to know.

MICHELANGELO'S MASTERPIECE

(Follow the directions for fantastic views, especially the +, zoom in, icon.)

MICHELANGELO'S MASTERPIECE

Here is an amazing bit of technology that allows you to view Michelangelo's masterpiece as never before.  Up close, and without the crowd.  This is especially spectacular if you have a large high-definition screen!   It is far too detailed to appreciate on an I-Phone.

TO VIEW EVERY PART OF THE MICHELANGELO'S MASTERPIECE, JUST CLICK AND DRAG YOUR ARROW IN THE DIRECTION YOU WISH TO SEE. In the lower left, click on the plus (+) to move closer, on the minus (-) to move away. Choir is thrown in free. AMAZING! MOVE THE ARROW AND YOU WILL SEE EVERY PART OF THE CHAPEL. This virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel is incredible. Apparently done by Villanova at the request of the Vatican . Thought you would enjoy the quality and a bit of Rome on your computer. Amazing what can be done with technology.

This is the Marshall High School classes of 1960 and 1961 Website. What started out as a reunion website evolved into a "Stay In Touch" with classmates website. Each Classmate and our Guests have a personal page that is set up so they can share with us the things that have been going on with themselves and their families since High School.  This is a great place to brag on your children and grandchildren, share your experiences and plans.  Feel free to "link" your Facebook, My Space, You Tube, etc. to your personal page. Insert recent photos of you and your family, add your "since I left MHS" history, etc. 

The site will be updated, active and useful for as long as class members want it to be. Update your personal information anytime you wish, and encourage other classmates to continue updating theirs.  When you enter the Home Page, there is a box in the upper right hand corner that will indicate who else is using the site.  To send an Instant Message to that person, simply click on the box and type in your message.  When they get your message they can immediately respond.   One can also go to the Message Center and contact anyone in the classes and/or our Guests, to begin a dialogue.  

Addditionally, there are website Administrators available to assist with preparation of your personal page, as well as respond to questions you have about the site. They also, check new data entered by classmates to assure that it is admissable. Info60@marshallmavs.com for the class of 1960 and info61@marshallmavs.com for the class of 1961.
