I once had a dream of owning one of these, but never did.
BEFORE THE BLOG (Posting early out to lunch): Breaking news---- They are going to start charging to use FACEBOOK I am told. REALLY? How are they gonna charge you? Probably take it right out of your checking account, RIGHT? Notice stated 'Starting next week'. NO DATE, so that can float around forever. AND NO! I DO NOT BELIEVE IT! A cyber myth!
Surprise, things do go wrong!
Walking here in ‘Sherwood Forest RV Park’ I saw a chow dog. You know, the red furry creatures with a blue tongue. It brought back a memory of a dog I had for only a couple days. He had bitten a few people but loved me. The owner gave him to me. I was a proud owner. Dad was wise, “You can’t keep him son. He might bite someone at church.”
I have never been a gloom and doom person. When I was bit by a dog, I did not think ‘every dog would bite,’ but I was careful!.
BlueRidgeBoomer said something today that sticks,”It looks easy on TV.” She was talking about the State Forest Service safely taking trees down. Yeah, dropping a tree looks easy until it falls on the next door neighbor’s house. Uh huh, it happened, but I never pictured all the trees falling wrong after that. The tree men were just more careful.
We have had two house break-ins in our 61 years as a family. I still do not worry about our houses when we are gone.
As a kid my dog killed a neighbor’s chicken. Dad paid for the hen, he didn’t shoot the dog, but I was more careful with him.
THINGS DO GO WRONG!
I lost my brakes in the motorhome going down a mountain once, but I did not give up the motor home. I do not drive in fear of it happening again.
I crossed the Atlantic a few times. My wife asked what if your ship goes down. My answer was the same then as now. You ain’t losing me that easy, “I will get back home!”
I am not ignorant enough to think I am bullet-proof or immune to problems and troubles, we have had our share. BUT I refuse to live in fear of the ‘Sky falling down!’
I wish folks who lived in fear could see around them, see that what they worried about either did not happen or wasn’t as bad as the fear.
AND YES, Folks do get killed. School shootings do happen. Planes do CRASH but can YOU stop it? Some people can never accept the advice, “Love life, do not fear nor hate it. Love life and live with your share of this world. Be yourself, everyone else is taken!
