I think everyone who knows me, knows that getting out on the roads of the USA and enjoying life there, really sets me off. I love it. We have traveled over a million miles and I have never had a ‘bad trip’.
Clothes get to some folk. Food does it for others. Just being with friends is great for some.
In my lifetime, jewelry was at one time mostly a female thing. That has changed over the years and now men are more attracted to jewelry. I read of one NFL team, during practice, that was looking for a team mates $10,000 diamond ear ring. Lots of men wear jewelry now. Jewelry seems to make a lot of folk happy.
Sherry has a new necklace. I love to see her wearing IT……. That is when jewelry makes me happy!
Cars? New ones don’t fascinate me, they have no tug to my happiness strings, BUT older cars? Yeah, I have to admit, They Yank MY Chain! I cannot understand the feeling I get seeing the 30’. 40’s & 50’s cars on the road. It is sort of a love. Not for that particular car, but for an ERA when cars were art. I admit to that one too..
Pictures, Photo’s seem to drive some folks engines. I see some great shots from the Big ‘O’ girls from Wisconsin. I love the shots by Robert in Athens and those of the GATE and around, by Louis! I know photography is apart of their lives. I take pictures, but not for memories I could never compete.
Some folk are into sports, both participating and watching. During any sports season, some folks would never miss a game. Sherry’s family love sports one played professional, Butch Harris.
Golf, I have friends who say, try it one time and you are hooked. That is not true, I tried it and had no problem not going back.
I like to fish, but I am not a FISHERMAN!
My life is simple now, I like to read, write, draw, paint, tinker, and travel. Of course there is always the occasional dinner date, and a night(?) of love, we are returning to the talking stage.
When you are young, you can plan 10,20,30 years down the road. In your 70’s the range drops considerably.
Then in the RV area, we went big time with this 38.5’ Overland. This was a great coach for 11 years, it became our home. I painted the front Bra just after 9-11 in San Antonio.
Colette and Sonny with Sherry. Our traveling buddies, at least two weeks every year until Sweet Colette passed on. Not a day goes by, that we do not think of them.
