from an old computer
1938 Studebaker President it was a part of Jim & Shirl's collection
This is an old computer. I am finding stuff I wrote about 8 yrs ago:
I have a Pollyanna picture of married life; I think it should be forever. I am not sure how many animals and fowls mate for life, but Tucker tells me that Canadian Geese do. Not all animals do and now it has reached the point where near half human marriages in the USA do not last.
I do know that it takes a lot of give and take. I know a marriage is not 50/50 all the time. Sometimes it is 10/90. There are times one partner, for the sake of the marriage, says I am sorry when in their eyes they have done nothing wrong. If it is a good match there will be a reversal of that and it, 90/10. Hopefully if you stay married long enough it will even out. It is the wise, or cool head that says, “I am Sorry”.
Sherry and I have been married 54+ years, I will admit she has given more than I. In the past few years I have tried to make a conscience effort to make some of that up to her.
I feel sorry for someone who is miserable in a marriage. I have enough common sense to know there are some folk who are HARD to live with. There are people who should never get married, they are too self centered or just do not know how to share.
Strange I should run across this on our 62nd anniversary. I have said it here many times. My girl is a dream. She has put stability into a fly by the seat of my pants sorta guy. I have been sorta successful at the many things I have tried, but I have to admit she handled changes like a champ. Like the time in ’58 I had been on the job at the Charlotte Observer two weeks and I came home to tell her I just joined the USAF, we leave in a week.”
All she asked was, “Where to this time?”
“Biloxi Mississippi, you will love it!”
“Okay, I’ll start packing.”
No surprises today, it has been lovely. Her favorite restaurant is the Red Lobster, so there we ate early today.
Oh well, thanks for stopping by the old people’s house.
The Coach sits in Atlanta, more news Monday. Computer geek called to say he could not get into the computer. Will take it back to factory settings. He can save no aps nor data. That is sorta good to know, I GUESS!
