    Ola Lee Mize, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for action during the Korean War passed on today. Another true hero has gone on to his reward. RIP Colonel.

    God bless him and keep him.
    I find supremely ironic that God in his wisdom and grace has given man freedom of choice bounded by 10 simple rules. Man in his finite wisdom has created millions of rules to limit freedom of choice and the personal responsibility of his fellow man.

    He's always up and out of bed before the morning comes
    He mumbles and he grumbles about all that must be done
    There's eighty years of memories that rattle in his head
    Whiskey and cigars that he keeps stashed beside his bed
    He believes the world went straight to hell When Brooklyn lost the Dodgers
    Some say that he's lost his mind
    Some call him an old codger

    Oh, but he's just old folks.....old folks
    Blessed is the child of yesterday
    Love those old folks
    And with a little luck and the lord to see us through
    One day, we will be old folks, too

    She used to bake the sweetest pies I swear I ever ate
    I'd steal the batter from the bowl 'cause I could never wait
    But now her hands are bent and sore; arthritis rages wild
    But you would never know they hurt the way she always smiles
    She believes the world is good and kind but would love warmer weather
    And her grandkids are perfect though sometimes they forget her

    All because she's old folks.....she's old folks
    Blessed is the child of yesterday
    Love those old folks
    And with a little luck and the lord to see us through
    One day, we will be old folks, too

    Oh, with a little luck and the lord to see us through
    One day, we will be old folks, too

    Amazing man interesting side note thinking of this man and Audie Murphy having such difficulty enlisting, but neither were the type to give up.
