So I am getting old I am told. Heck I can look at my driver’s license and tell that. But no one prepared me for my absentmindedness. I have pulled some corkers in my life. Putting things where I know I will not lose them, then forgetting where that is.
What is the big deal? Well I have written six books. They are due to go on Amazon as e-books for the Kindle. One is now there, but here it becomes a ‘sticky wicket’ as a friend once said. I cannot find the manuscripts for most of the books. They have to be here in this Motor home somewhere, BUT WHERE? I have looked everywhere, evidently not, because I would have found them.
Now if it was paper manuscripts it would be no problem, these are on disks. Hey not necessarily, they could be on a little speed drive. Let me see. Hey I found two of them, this is three altogether that I have. Now I am missing three more. Where are you hiding? They are in the hundreds of disks I have, but where.
I can recoup because I have the next to the last cut of all of them. It just doesn’t make sense that I have not filed them. (Well I have filed them, I just don’t know where!!!)LOL
Hey I loved the response to toys. Fred will have to explain the houey stick. He did show me one while we were at their house last summer. Every kid will remember things from their youth. Even today’s kids. I have no idea what they will remember, but they will.
Oh man, Glenda, down in Okee, sent us the song by the ‘Oak ridge Boys’ called ‘GI Joe and Lillie’. I could not understand the lyrics but Sherry was crying before it was over and could not tell me without crying what the song was about. I haven’t been able to fine the lyrics yet, but I will. I thought of her dad & Mom.
That is the thread, if you want to see it. Just scroll down and start the video. Tell me if you cry.
Oh, someone mentioned the outside games, kick the can, hide and seek, Red Rover, Mama May I? and jump rope.
The girls were always better at this. Even the two ropes and ‘red hot’, was real fast I think? Oh yes, hop-scotch.
