Building Inspectors, TV & westerns then of course LOVE
Little known facts:
1. The only member of the band ZZ Top without a beard has the last name Beard.
2. The electric chair was invented by a dentist.
3 In Egypt around 1500 B.C., a shaved head was considered the ultimate in feminine beauty. Egyptian women removed every hair from their heads with special gold tweezers and polished their scalps to a high sheen with buffing cloths.
It has been such a long time since I have dealt with building inspectors, I forgot that sometimes you wait, and wait, and wait…..
I waited all day Friday at Grandson Josh’s house for a final inspection on the Storage building. I busied myself in the yard and finally turned to my Kindle and started reading a Western.
Westerns are my 'go to' for relaxed reading. Usually the good guy wins and gets the girl. I read for enjoyment. I like mysteries with some twists and turns. I am not fond of a full page describing a tree, man or woman. I guess not everyone is like me. I like to form my picture of the characters as I did listening to the radio.
Speaking of radio, I loved ‘The Lone Ranger’. I enjoyed ‘Beulah’. I also liked Amos and Andy. I had my own radio and could listen late into the night. I discovered ‘Gunsmoke’ one Sunday night and became a regular listener. The opening line went something like this: “In Dodge City there is only one way to handle the killers and spoilers, and that is with the US Marshal Matt Dillon.” At that time as I remember the voice of ‘William Conrad’ would come on saying “I am that man, United States Marshall, Matt Dillon.”
When Gunsmoke hit TV it was hard for me to transfer to James Arness, as Matt Dillion, he did not sound right. LOL. I soon fell in line and loved it on TV. In looking back over time (TV WISE) I enjoyed all the westerns, but “Gunsmoke” was my favorite.
Since I never watch TV anymore for enjoyment, I have no idea of today’s shows. I sorta hate to admit it, but this computer is my source of enjoyment. I am tied to it about as much as I was to TV.
Life does not stand still. I guess the time of westerns is gone. Our TV comes on when the boys are here. They seem to watch the old stuff. LOL (OUR sons are old, WOW, mid and upper fifties!) It is hard to believe that Sherry is that old.
She can’t be! When I tuck her in at night, that girl is still
one beautiful lady. I’m smiling now thinking, I told the grand kids the other day, ”You might not know it, but your grandma is still the best kisser in the world.” In my opinion, “SHE IS! (among other things)”.
Disclaimer: Yep we are close to 80 yrs. Young, and we don’t let that little fact interfere with LIFE!
(Sorry honey I got carried away)
This was going to be a short entry, sorry!
I loved the Corvair, we had one in Guantanamo Bay Cuba for a couple years. It drove like I think a sportscar would.
