Following in Your Footprints

Colaborador: tfinney22 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Written by Beatrice Nielsen to her husband Kenneth Nielsen I've been following in your footprints (Made by shoes nine-triple E) From the valleys of the Rockies to the shark-filled Coral Sea. From a house-boat moored in Kashmir to a Caribbean cruise Criticizing and complaining I kept following those shoes. To the Prairies of Saskatch'wan And Victoria Peak, Hong Kong To the jungles of Sumatra I kept grumbling right along. Bangladesh and then Jamaica Cameroun where French is "in" I went muttering and complaining To the places where we've been. Pyongyang found in North Korea Is a place that tourists shun But we journeyed there quite often To the place of Kim II Sung. Ullaanbattor in Mongolia wasn't really on my list So I approached it with reluctance But am glad it wasn't missed. From the canyons south in Utah to a classroom in Xian Where we helped the Wendts teach English I kept murmuring on and on. So each year's a new adventure And though I know it has to end First, we'll travel to South Africa If your knee will ever mend. Spain, Alaska, Guatamala Now I think of senior's tours And we ring back fondest memories Of tourist life on distant shores. I've been following in your footprints made by shoes -- you know the rest And your big-fat Grecian birthday Was "five star", the very best. We heard the oracle at Delphi Saw the Ephesus of St. Paul We did the Acropolis at Athens We are trying to climb them all. But now we plan no flights to China Travel books make us content The lure of Elderhostel lessens If it's off this continent. I've been shuffling in your footsteps Made by shoes nine-triple E and you've slowed down just a trifle From the guy you used to be. I've been following in your footsteps half a century and more And I notice now I'm wobbling And my feet are getting sore. It has all been worth the journey And our children bring such joys As we bask in love of family With sweet grand girls and grand boys. But I'll still keep in your footsteps To the doctor or masseuse And hand-in-hand we'll face the sunset fraid I'll fall if I let loose. Now your steps are getting slower And you sometimes lack behind Still you will always be my hero Leonidis, brave and kind. While I say that you are stubborn (and sometimes you were a pain) Still I guess I'll keep on following and I'd do it all again. Ive been following in your footprints A practice old as old can be But we've had a little change of plans And I know you'll follow me.

Life timeline of Beatrice Flosom Nielsen

Beatrice Flosom Nielsen was born on 13 Jul 1927
Beatrice Flosom Nielsen was 12 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Beatrice Flosom Nielsen was 18 years old when World War II: Combat ends in the Pacific Theater: The Japanese Instrument of Surrender is signed by Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu and accepted aboard the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay.

It was fought over a vast area that included the Pacific Ocean and islands, the South West Pacific, South-East Asia, and in China.

Born in New York City, he attended New York University School of Medicine, later choosing to do medical research instead of becoming a practicing physician. In 1939, after earning his medical degree, Salk began an internship as a physician scientist at Mount Sinai Hospital. Two years later he was granted a fellowship at the University of Michigan, where he would study flu viruses with his mentor Thomas Francis, Jr.

Beatrice Flosom Nielsen was 54 years old when The first launch of a Space Shuttle (Columbia) takes place: The STS-1 mission. The Space Shuttle was a partially reusable low Earth orbital spacecraft system operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), as part of the Space Shuttle program. Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS), taken from a 1969 plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for development. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. In addition to the prototype whose completion was cancelled, five complete Shuttle systems were built and used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Operational missions launched numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST); conducted science experiments in orbit; and participated in construction and servicing of the International Space Station. The Shuttle fleet's total mission time was 1322 days, 19 hours, 21 minutes and 23 seconds.
Beatrice Flosom Nielsen was 64 years old when The World Wide Web is opened to the public. The World Wide Web (WWW), also called the Web, is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), interlinked by hypertext links, and accessible via the Internet. English scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989. He wrote the first web browser in 1990 while employed at CERN in Switzerland.
