more beautiful as they fade.
May we say our farewells, when it's time to go,
All smiling and unafraid."

Here's to the memory
Of the man
That raised the corn
That fed the goose
That bore the quill
That made the pen
That wrote the Declaration of Independence

It is my loving sentiment, and by the blessing of God it shall be my dying sentiment - Independence now and Independence forever!

--Daniel Webster

I used to know a clever toast
But pshaw! I cannot think it-
So fill your glass to anything
and, bless your souls, I'll drink it.

Drink to the girls and drink to their mothers,
Drink to their father and to their brothers;
Toast their dear healths as long as your able,
And dream of their charms while your under the table.

-- Paul Dickson (Author)

"Here's to champagne, the drink devine,
That makes us forget our troubles;
It's made of a dollar's worth of wine
and three dollar's worth of bubbles."*

* This is the original version of the toast, at least nine decades old; so you may have to inflate the dollar amount to up date it.

Good luck to the flock and the fleece
Good luck to the growers of corn
