I never expected to even see the year 2000. Shucks, I certainly did not expect to live to see “Orwell’s 1984”. It was so futuristic in the 1950’s I thought there could be a ‘BIG BROTHER, but I will never live to see it. ‘That year will never come’, but it did, it came and was gone in no time.
When you are 20 you cannot think past the 20’s. And it goes on until you are old. Up to your 50’s you hear of someone passing at 65+ you say, ‘ahhh but they enjoyed a good long life’. Then when you reach 65 a person passing in their 90’s you MIGHT say, they lived a good long life. Time and age are strange animals to decipher..
It doesn’t bother me for some one to think I am old, because I am. I don’t even mind how they feel, because I felt the same way. It is odd that when you are 5 and your brothers are 17-18 they are like ancient. But then when you get 40 and they are 52 & 53 you seem more the same age.
Sherry has an older brother, Vernon. Vern has always looked like a kid. I think it laughingly bothered Sherry when the boys would ask her, “Who is oldest, you or uncle Vernon?”
Shirl and I meeting with the Skipper of the Battle ship, USS North Carolina, concerning my brother’s family donation to the ship.
Now, between Shirl and I, before anyone asks, I always announce, “Shirl is the oldest”. I somehow feel a little down when I think Shirl is the Matriarch of our family and just 2yrs older than I. But then we are all that is left of our immediate family.
But I am glad I am here. Life has been very good to me. I am the luckiest guy in the world, I get to sleep with a gorgeous lady. Sometimes I even get lucky………. and get to sleep late!!! LOL
(Once when Sherry was trying to take advantage of me in a motel)
Hey Thanks for coming by the log,
PS: (If you have wondered about government spending and the budget. Dave Ramsey has put it in simple terms, you may have to read it twice)
"If the US Government was a family, they would be making $58,000 a year, they spend $75,000 a year, and have $327,000 in credit card debt. They are currently proposing "big" spending cuts to reduce their spending to $72,000 a year. These are the actual proportions of the federal budget and debt, reduced to a level that we can understand. "
I believe this is a load of 1955 Buicks
Upper is a 1955 the lower is a 1956
(You could always tell size/model by the small ports on the side. As a general rule the 3 ports was a Special or Super, 4 ports indicated a Roadmaster, Skylark or Century.)
