LOVE - the joy of giving - the blessing of the gift
- AND that those you LOVE are what HOME truly is

All the best from the Sheppards Home ... Le, Mary Jane, Maggie, and Cee

Life is a struggle with losing our home this year,
having to move our things out ASAP, and all out other stress.
But as long as we have each other ...
LOVE rules eternal.

 

Repost from December 19, 2015 ...
Warm memories preparing for the Season of LOVE ...
Our Christmas in Cranbury, NJ ... Maggie's first Santa at home …
and so much more. Merry Christmas to ALL!

The Christmas GIFT in our Sheppard home was from Maggie to her Mom ...
a frame filled with photos and hand prints of the 2 boys Mary Jane sits for
and we ALL consider our family, Beau and Boone.
Beautiful gift on Christmas day and all year round ...
 
 
 
No time this year for writing my Christmas posts,
so I will repeat this one from a year ago
along with a beautiful piece of music.

12.19.17 ... Growing up there was always music around the holidays as there was all year round (being surrounded by talented artists and musicians). Whether at Granny Fulmer's or in our Sheppard home on the farm or up at Uncle John and Aunt Skip's in Lancaster - someone was always playing the piano (Uncle John, Dad, or one of us) and other instruments. Singing carols, hymns, and songs while harmonizing. At times there was even a string ensemble. Best for me was hearing Pop on the piano alone and playing for himself. Simple and heartfelt - my Father's and his brother's musical and artistic legacy. Pictured is a VERY young Bob Sheppard (Pop) on the left, his brother John Sheppard (the artist) at the piano, and my Mother's brother Roy Fulmer with 3 women sitting around the piano at Granny Fulmer's in Cold Point.
AND ... this from Abbey Road posted today. Beautiful.

MUSICAL HISTORY LESSON ...
Nat 'King' Cole - "The Christmas Song"
This is the very first recording of this classic by Nat with just the trio. Recorded in 1946.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdMSDg4tDCI
Later that same year it was recorded again with the addition of a string section and a harpist.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzMUjqd3Bnw
In 1953 came the first version to feature a full orchestra with Ralph Carmichael conducting.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bxLd9_t6ug
Finally, in 1961 came the version most played nowadays with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJ85RiQPg6A
Every one is perfect.?

 

 

 Sometimes it's hard to see the light through the darkness ...
but even in the darkness,  I see the the beauty and the light.
Love.

 

 
Don't tell me what I can't do, I get reality. Help me achieve
my dreams or please, step out of the way and watch me fly ... Le Sheppard

Happy "Believe" Day, dedicated to recognizing the generosity and spirit of the holiday season.
We 3 believe ... "At one time, most of my friends could hear the bell, but as years passed,
it fell silent for all of them. Even Sarah found one Christmas that she could no longer hear its sweet sound.
Though I've grown old, the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe."
from Polar Express
Le, Mary Jane, Maggie Sheppard card.html

 

12.15.17
"All you can take with you is that which you've given away"
... from It's A Wonderful Life.
We 3 believe in the magic of giving, Santa, Christmas,
love, and the spirit of the season. Though the years pass,
we still feel the magic as do all who truly believe.

12.16.17
"Anyway, my father didn't think so.
People were human beings to him.
But to you, a warped, frustrated old man,
they're cattle. Well in my book, my father died
a much richer man than you'll ever be!"
… George Bailey to Potter preaching humanity
over greed. What the world needs now is love.
   

12.17.17
"Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things
in the world are the things we can't see" … we believe.

12.18.17
Favorite Scrooge's from the book we looked at while
listening to the Lionel Barrymore record as children
in the Sheppard house ("The Christmas Carol" ... LINK)
to all the rest (Alastair Sim, Magoo, the wonderful
musical "The Muppet Christmas Carol" / Michael Caine,
and Albert Finney in the musical Scrooge).
   

12.19.17
Growing up there was always music around the holidays
as there was all year round (being surrounded by talented
artists and musicians). Whether at Granny Fulmer's or
in our Sheppard home on the farm or up at
John and Aunt Skip's someone was always playing
the piano (Uncle John, Dad, or one of us) and
other instruments. Singing carols, hymns, and
songs harmonizing - and at times there was even
a string ensemble. Best for me was hearing
Pop on the piano alone and playing for himself.
Simple and heartfelt - my Father's and
his brother's musical and artistic legacy.
Pictured is a VERY young Bob Sheppard (Pop),
his brother John Sheppard (the artist),
and my Mother's brother Roy Fulmer with 3 women
sitting around the piano at Granny Fulmer's in Cold Point.

12.20.17
George Bailey is having his last meal at home
before leaving. His father is distraught over his
leaving while the maid Annie eavesdrops.

George Bailey: Pop, I think you're a great guy

George Bailey: Did you hear that, Annie?

Annie: I heard it... 'bout time one of you
lunkheads said it!
   

12.21.17
SO many years ago. Our first real apartment in Cranberry NJ in the center of town ...
and Maggie's first Santa visit ... he treated Maggie as if she was his daughter ...
we DO love Santa and the love he brings. LOVE.
   

12.22.17
As on December 21, 2015, today we started
decorating our trees with lights.
Soon, Bert again will be the first ornament
put on our 2 trees.

12.23.17
"The love we found, we carry with us -
so we're never quite alone"
"With a thankful heart that is wide awake
- I do make this promise with every breath I take
- Will be used now to sing your praise
- And beg you to share my days
- With a loving guarantee that even if we part
- I will hold you close in a thankful heart"
... The Muppet Christmas Carol
   
12.22.17
Heading to Sesame Place to see our old friend BERT in the night parade.
Should be a fun way to start the holiday weekend.
Wonder if I'll see Maggie?

Great night at Sesame Place last night.
Bert was in rare form as all were in the parade.
Good to see smiling faces and be around good people.
And yes, I saw Maggie
   

12.24.17
"Sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see"
"Just remember the true spirit of Christmas lies in your heart"
"Though I've grown old the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe"
"Seeing is believing but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see"
"One thing about trains: it doesn't matter where they're goin'. What matters is deciding to get on"
"There's no greater gift than friends"
All from "The Polar Express" ... we 3 believe.
Le, Mary Jane, and Maggie
 

We just watched "It's A Wonderful Life"
There are TOO many Potter's - not enough Bailey's in our world.
LET'S LOVE ALL ... and let's GET RID OF THE HATE.
So as President Barack Obama said often for YEARS ...
"Merry Christmas" LINK

 

Santa is always near if we believe in giving, love,
and kindness. Merry Christmas, The Sheppards

A theme to our gifts. I gave Mary Jane and Maggie

Seems we need to be reminded of so much after a sad 2017
and moving into more in 2018. Hope for better days.

All and all - and in spite of the situation, I can not imagine a better

Creation is a curse you would never give up ...

In art - in life, I tire of revisit, recreate, and do over.
Creation and imagination is in what's next - something new - and going where
we have not been before. Plenty of room to explore if you shine YOUR light.
People are free to do as they wish, but for me you can never go back
and recreate a moment, so make a new one.

   


Having friends to reach out to make bad days a whole lot better.
Glad to have good people to be our REAL neighbors and community

Hope. LOVE.
All the best in 2018 for one and all.

What a GREAT Christmas Eve and Christmas Day spent with my family and two BEST friends,
Mary Jane and Maggie Sheppard. Watching movies while decorating and wrapping
in our beautiful home, we then exchanged gifts (Maggie and I gave each other the
Lego Yellow Submarine - lol) and then hanging out all day together until we ordered
Chinese (Mags had Mac & Cheese). Just a great positive and fun day in our Sheppard home.
I hope all had such a great Christmas as we Sheppards did ... Le Sheppard
 
 
 

Santa is always near if we believe in giving, love, and kindness

Happy New Year everyone!
It's Mary Jane and my 23rd New Years Eve together. Imagine that.
While it's just another night for us, this past year has been one to forget
in SO many ways. Sadly with the path forward SO filled with fear, bitter
negative karma, and ignorance of SO much - it's hard to call it a "Happy" anything.
But staying positive with HOPE, we wish for better days to come (pledging to fight
for what is right and true) and wish for all many bright tomorrows in all of life's adventures.
Here are two songs for this day of reflection, my rework of a song written by
my friend Will Rhodin - "Another New Years Eve" (http://www.LeSheppard.com/Rhodin.html) ...
and my "Lucky As I Am" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q66MpQzEsuc).
Finally, I for one am the luckiest man on earth having my two best friends
Mary Jane and Maggie Sheppard in my life everyday

"We can identify with the ups and downs that poor George goes through.
We can identify with the fact that his dreams that he had for himself
never came true. And it also identifies with the fact that as long as
we have faith, family and friends ... we're good"

Karoyln "Zuzu" Grimes (one of the last surviving
cast members of the 1946 holiday classic "It's a Wonderful Life")
reflects on iconic Christmas classic.


December 16 ... As has become our tradition to mark my father's birthday
today (would have been his 95th) my sister, Judith Mahoney, and my brother,
Bobby Tettemer got together to lay Christmas greenery on our parent's grave.
Judy made a beautiful arrangement from bits and pieces gathered from around
her home … the photos don't quite capture how pretty it really was. We were
then treated to a delicious lunch of cheesesteaks at Pudges Steaks and
a lovely walk with Jamie Mahoney's dog, Sophie, at Plymouth Valley Park.
It was a nice way to spend the day. PHOTO LINK ... Mary Jane


Growing up, there was always music in the air around the holidays
(and all year round) being surrounded by talented artists and musicians.
Whether at Granny Fulmer's - or in our Sheppard home back on the farm -
or up at Uncle John and Aunt Skip's - someone was always playing the piano
(Uncle John, Dad, or one of us). Sure there was plenty of singing hymns and songs
and harmonizing gathered around the piano - and at times there was even a
string ensemble - but the best for me was hearing Pop on the piano alone
and playing for himself - simple and heartfelt (my Father's and his brother's
musical and artistic legacy). This music reminds me of those times LINK
Merry Christmas to ALL of you. LINK to picture of a VERY young
Bob Sheppard, his brother John Sheppard and my Mother's brother Roy Fulmer
with 3 women sitting around the piano at Granny Fulmer's in Cold Point.

After so much (4 years and a nasty campaign) of facing

Tom Cino a clear and VERY deserving victory with
NO DOUBT of who the PEOPLE wanted to serve ALL of them. .

My Simple Gift (To Mom and Dad, 1980)
2015 version ... LINK

If I only could - you know I surely would - make all your dreams come true
But since I'm not ol' Santa Claus - My Simple Gift will have to do

If there was a way - I'd brighten up your days - and fill your nights with sweet dreams
Santa's not my name, - writing songs is my fame - My Simple Gift is a song for you

A dozen roses - would make you feel right
Make those pretty eyes - sparkle and shine
But roses won't last - like a melody will
A Simple Gift, - a simple tune - for you, only you

Maybe someday - I'll be able to repay - all of the love you've given me
But as Christmas is to give - to love is to live - This simple note = is signed with love

So many thank you's - for so many things
How lucky I am to know you
Before I forget, - if I haven't told you yet
Merry Christmas - and God bless you

Words can't express - all the happiness - you, yes you - have shown to me
But still I must try - before I bid you goodbye - try to explain it to you

That if I only could - you know I surely would = make all your dreams come true
But since I'm not ol' Santa Claus - My Simple Gift will have to do
My Simple Gift is a song for you
My gift is only for you.

• MEETING CARROLL (Big Bird and Oscar) AND DEBRA SPINNEY
• WORKING WITH THE WONDERFUL JOHN TARAGLIA
• MEETING SESME STREET PUPPETEER MARTIN ROBINSON




the not so great
On February 5th during an Ice Storm that caused a Power Surge
we learned who "neighbors" are and not, learned what "community"
is and is not, and learned who steps to the plate to help their common man
and who does nothing. We move one ...

Great moments from 2014
In divisive Upper Makefield Township, you see my dear friend Chairman Tom Cino maturely showing his fellow gaming board members and ALL local "representatives" just what FACT is versus what spin is. He shows how to clear the air of political divisive TEAM sports - and return the process to oath, service, and representation. Note how after all around him had gamed him and the issues, Tom puts ALL the facts on the table -
and has them ALL agreed to them.

All the best and Happy Holidays to you and yours
from the 2 Good Sheppards and One Wise Guy


Answering a question of who your favorite Scrooge is - we said in order Alastair Sim, Albert Finny, Mr. Magoo, and Michael Caine. BUT ... we forgot a great one which was a Sheppard family favorite when I was growing up. Every year we'd gather and listen to the record of the old radio broadcast of Lionel Barrymore playing Scrooge in "The Christmas Carol" with Richard Hide narrating. Fond memories and we all knew it by heart and would quote it often. We 3 still love it. So we put Barrymore next to Alastair Sim with an asterisk.

Sad year losing our pet of 13 years Auchmoody and my good friend Granville Bohmler
..

It was sad news. September 16, 2010 at 3:15pm Auchmoody, our 13 year old Bassett Hound
(bought two months after we married, bought the house, and had Maggie) passed away in our arms.
He was the best doggie.

I got Maggie a Mahalo Sunburst Ukulele (see LINK) but MUCH to my surprise
my daughter spent her money on her Dad and bought me a "Phineas and Ferb" Guitar.
Not much to play - but it is and will forever be priceless to me.
A musical Christmas at the Sheppard house.

The magic of Christmas and Santa lives in our hearts. Christmas is about giving - not getting ...
which is why I felt so good after our "Wonderful Life" movie event. What a great morning.
We packed the Newtown Theatre and collected tons of canned goods donated for the needy
There was not a dry eye in the place. All had a great time. I was proud to sponsor the movie while
supporting the theatre. A gift for my beautiful wife who was thrilled.

PICTURES FROM 1997


1994

On October 15, 1994, Mary Jane Tettemer and Le Sheppard 
were at our 20th Plymouth Whitemarsh High School Reunion.
While we both were heading to the rest room, sparks flew (to say the least).
Soon after we started dating, married 3 years later, were blessed with Maggie Sheppard
soon after and we bought our Wrightstown home.
We celebrate our kidneys, our love, our Maggie P, and all the magic still blessing us daily
on this journey. The photo on left was the first taken of us in February 1995 at the Hershey Hotel.
LOVE rules in our Sheppard home. "What a thing to say" (written that night after the reunion) … http://www.lesheppard.com/Thing.html

"A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence"
Leopold Stokowski

"This is the one form of government where the residents who are being represented
by those that are elected can actually reach out and touch their elected officials
and have a discourse. It would be nice if more of that was to take place"
Upper Makefield's Township Representative Bud Baldwin

"More than any time in recent history, America's destiny is not of our own choosing.
We did not seek nor did we provoke an assault on our freedom and our way of life.
We did not expect nor did we invite a confrontation with evil. Yet the true measure of
a
people's strength is how they rise to master that moment when it does arrive -
The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels, but every time we think we have
measured our capacity to meet a challenge, we look up and we'
re reminded that that
capacity may well be limitless. This is a time for American heroes. We will do what is hard.
We will achieve what is great. This is a time for American heroes and we reach for the stars"
Aaron Sorkin, West Wing ("20 Hours in America": I & II; aired September 25, 2002)
