Okay that is enough. You will hear more of our marriage later this month. Our buddy Woody and Anna Mae had their anniversary this month. It was a good month for sailors. YEAH!!!!!
As I have said we are in Accord NY. We stopped by here on the way to try to hike the trail. We were both disappointed that we were unable to complete the trail. Sherry still reads Trail Journals and follows the folks who are still on the trail. Every day it seems she names someone who has climbed to the summit of Mt. Katahdin to complete their thru-hike. I am re reading ‘Blind Courage’ by Bill Irwin. Reading his endurance I am challenged to try it again. But it would be in two years.
Sherry will start her procedure for Osteoporosis when we get back to NC, and it requires refrigerated meds every day for 21 months. That would throw us 2011 before we could give it another try. But we do not know what the future holds; we will take it one day at a time.
Hope you all had a good labor day weekend. I know you folk that are still working appreciated the break.
We were reading our local paper over the net. Freightliner Trucks are made in Mt. Holly just five miles from Belmont. Coke put in an order for trucks and Freightliner said they would be built in Mexico. Coke said they will not. Freightliner is building them in the USA. Now Duke Energy (Our power Co.) put in an order for trucks. Freightliner said they will be built in Mexico. Duke Energy said we don’t like it but Okay. Now I am mad as fire, Why didn’t Duke not stick to their guns, move some jobs back to the states. Freightliner laid off a grunch of men, most still not working. Freightliner said they did not want to interrupt the lives of the laid off guys by calling them back for a few months. What a crock!
Take care and thanks for reading this drivel.
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 20 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.
