I have a friend, Buddy, lately of New Mexico. Buddy had two traits that set him apart. He was witty and he could defend himself. (I first used fight, but that ain’t politically correct any more, cause fighting today is to the death too many times). I was fortunate to have a 1948 Chevy Convertible when I was 16. Gas was around 25cents a gallon so we could ride all evening on $1. One day we were in the edge of Charlotte, and Buddy in the back seat yelled pull into that filling station. I whipped in, several cars were there, the top was down so Buddy jumps and starts running toward the bathroom. right about the crowd of folks he slid to a stop, grabbed the seat of his pants and yelled “Just bring me some toilet paper!”
Well that was one time you just had to be there to get the entire joke.
My daddy’s best friend was Walt Moody, another preacher. Back in the 1940’s many preachers wore white suits. Walt liked to fish and took dad down to the river. Walt got in the boat and pushed off. Dad looked down and saw the paddles on the bank and yelled, “Walt, you forgot the oars!” With his white suit on, he took the rope and stepped off into the muddy S. Fork river and waded back in. My daddy could never control his laughing, he also had on a white suit, but was so overcome with the scene that he lay down laughing.
You may have had it happen, but it ain’t really funny until you SEE someone changing a little boy’s diaper and get baptized in a golden fountain!
Don was telling me when he first started driving his RV and towing his car, that one day going down the road he looked in his side mirror and saw a car really close, trying to pass. Then an instant later realized it was his car, one of the wields had come loose on the tow vehicle, of course the other wield and the safety chains were securing the ‘loose’ car. He got stopped without any major damage.
I know there are funny things in everyone’s lives that you just had to be there to get the full impact.
Thanks for coming this way.

My first car, the beautiful 1948 Chevy convertible. ( I ruined this beauty, by rolling it over, one evening after taking Sherry home) My cousin Ken owned it next.
