We STILL Remember ~ Sean Patrick Tallon

Note: This wuz originally posted 9/11/2006....we wanted to repost it. We'll never forget!



When aircraft crashed into the World Trade Center's twin towers, it was New York City's Bravest that did what they did best - head directly in to danger, in order to save lives. Firefighters, paramedics, and EMTs - side by side - as was the case so many times before.

Together with members of that city's Finest, they made their way to the heart of the tragedy. Grabbing their gear, the firefighters began rushing into the gigantic structures to assist with their safe evacuation, while the paramedics and EMTs began tending to the injured below.

It was while doing those jobs - in the kind of rescue that they had performed so well, so many times - that their lives were taken from us. (Taken from here)

Sean Patrick "Charger" Tallon was one of those such men. At 26, he had only a month or so left of being a "probie" (a probationary firefighter). Sean was one of the first responders, along with the other members of Ten House. Their station was right across the street from the World Trade Center. On the way up the stairs of Tower One, Sean helped a fellow firefighter that was having a heart attack, then he continued up with two more of his fellow firemen. They were trapped when Tower One collapsed.

Sean led an active and varied life. He was a Marine Corps Reservist. He also loved Irish music and playing the button accordion. He would practice for an hour or more on many evenings. The steady, easy flow of sweet hornpipes, tasty reels, and lively jigs would fill the house.

This is part of a song that was written for Sean, and was played at his funeral:

"Up the stairs boys, running to the top

Without a thought to slow or stop

Upstairs boys on 9/11 and they kept on going

to the gates of Heaven.

With the men of Ten House was Sean Tallon...

Although he wasn't the first, he wasn't the last...

With love of God and Country he never thought he could

see such acts of hate...

As we remember our Charger and the others

and shed a mournful tear for all his fallen brothers,

Although we didn't know them all,

we knew them well enough to know what they were made of...

And that was hero stuff.

written by Dereen and Marian Griffin

Sean left behind his parents, grandparents, sister and brother-in-law, and extended family in the United States, England, and Ireland, along with many friends. He is greatly missed by all.

May you rest in peace Sean Patrick Tallon. I would like to offer up this blessing:

Traditional Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind always be at your back,

The sun shine warm upon your face,

The rain fall soft upon your fields,

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.

Thank you for all that you and your brothers do and have sacrificed for all of us! You and yours will be in my prayers. ~Rebecca Buchenot Sain

Finally a post!!

Hi y'all!!! No, we didn't fall off the face of the earth.....it just seemed like it! Momma has been crazy busy wif werk. They hadded floor set and inbentory all in one week! She werked 11 days straight after she gotted back home frum Beantown!! Daddy is doing well wif flying. We don't see much of him....he leafs in the morning and then comes home 12 hours later. He DID get to fly solo a couple of weeks ago. Here is a link to all of the pict-shurs (and Momma's trip too!) We'll let them post 2 heer for now....(OK...free so we can haf Auntie Alicia at her skool).





























Since that's the update on the beans, now onto US!! We've been napping lots, watchin' the birdies and squirrleys, and keeping an eye on fings around heer. We's been keeping up wif owr friends, efen if we haven't been commenting. Hope efurry is safe wif all of the hurry-canes goin' on.

Meeko missin' Daddy.


Kiara talkin' to Momma.

Solo?!?!

Well, owr Daddy *might* be flying his metal birdie all by himself sometime this week. We say might a'cause the weather hasn't been furry co-operative with flying. Momma is sad that it hasn't happened yet, a'cause she leaves tomorrow to go to Boston to bisit Auntie Alicia. Her wedding shower is this weekend, and since Momma is her Matron-of-Honor, she (momma) really wanted to be there for it. AND Momma's friend Leslie (who wuz momma's maid-of-honor) is getting married this weekend. This wuz just announced, so that's why Momma isn't going to that. Things will be pretty quiet around heer.

Hope y'all are hafing a good week!!

Breaking news & Pic-shurs - Part 1

This just in....Momma gotted a jobbie at Bath & Body Werks!! She's still waiting to heer frum the skool district tho. Whoohoo!! (The only hospital in town isn't hiring fur her position. It's a pretty smallish hospital, and there aren't any surgery centers around.)





This am the birdie that Momma caughted tonight. We're not sure what it is, but it eats nectar frum the hummie bird feeder. Momma wuz sitting in the lifing room when she heard sumfing crash into the front screen door! She wented to 'vestigate, and founded the birdie hanging on to the screen window beside the door. It looked kinda stunned. Momma gotted it off the window, and it perched on her finger. She wented to go get it water frum the birdie bath, 'cause she couldn't get to the nectar that wuz hanging and WUZN'T about to bring it into the howse wif us. After a little water, it chirpped and flew into the tree. Momma is gonna keep a eye owt for it.


This is a different birdie (maybe the male version of the ofur one?) that has been eating wif the hummies. Not sure what it is eifur. Momma finks it's in the oreo family. But none of her birdie books say anyfing about oreo's eating nectar...so we're pretty stumped.


Kiara chillin' in her ham-mick. Sorta doin' the Q (with a twist).



Us sharing a bed. We NEFUR do this. EFUR. Momma wuz shocked.

Momma here: They are always hissing and growling at each other. The ONLY other time they did this was when we were moving and in unfamiliar territory. Kiara was on the bed first. While I was petting her, Meeko decided that she wanted up too. They stayed this way for a couple of hours, even changing positions. I knew no one would believe me if I told them, so I had to get pics.

pee ess- See post below fur more pic-hurs!!!

Pic-shurs -Part 2



This am one of the 6, yes 6, hummie birds that we have. of course, any time Momma tries to get a pic-shur of all of them...they fly off.


Kiara heer: This am the lizard that I catched in the hall. He had already lost him's tail a'fore I gots ahold of him. Momma tooked him away, tooked his pic-shur, and then SHE LET HIM GO!!! I fought fur sure that I was gonna have a tasty snack! But , NOOOOOO...mean momma!



These are the froggies that live under owr patio. We counted 6 of them! I (Kiara) like to stick my hed down in their hole to say hello! Momma sez that that isn't polite. They might think that you are trying to eat them. Besides she sez, you never know what kind of bad things could be in that hole....like snakes or big, scary spiders!


These are the silly squirrlys trying to eat the bird seed. Nevermind that they've got their own peanuts to eat. One of them was efun eating the hummie birds food!! Momma hadded to move it to the front yard. Momma fought that it wuz funny seeing one squirrl upside down wif anofur one watchin' him! Beans are easily amused sumtimes!

Ferst 100!!!

Whoohoo!!! Daddy gotted his ferst 100 on his test today!!! We am all the way proud of him. So is Momma. He starts in the pretend planes tomorrow.

On the "buffet" front, we gots 3 hummingberds!!! Momma saw all 3 of them at once, that's how she know's it not the same one. One of them efun buzzed her while she wuz sitting owtside talking to Grammie on the phone!! (Hi Grammie!!). Momma finks that they were fighting ofur the feeder. There are 2 ofur birds eating owt of the hummybird feeder. We's not shur what they are, but fink that they might be Common Yellowthroat, or a Yellow-headed Blackbird. She needs to get a better view of them to figure it owt. But, she finks that there is a pair. She saw one boldly marked and another not so much. We fink that they all look YUMMY!!!

We'll keep y'all posted. And try to get pic-shurs.

Kiara heer- I gotted to chase a squirrley yesterday!!! I wuz owtside wif Momma when one came frew the yard lookin' fur food. I fink I surprised him!! He ranned up the tree, and then I started to eat the grass instaed. Guess I'm not all that good of a hunter!
