I will NEVER
Trucks of Art:
But then if you like Chrome......... (This guy must be in the Chrome business!)
I normally enjoy writing an entry for the Shipslog. I try to stay away from controversies. I understand that readers of my mental notebook have their firm beliefs. Most likely your beliefs are just as firm as mine, I respect them.
I am not a fan of Pit Bulldogs. Neither was my best friend Sonny. That is until he dated Phillis who had two ‘well-mannered and trained’ Pits. Then, "Jack they aren’t so bad." LOL
Another friend laughed when our friend Anna Belle decided she would like to drop the Belle, she had never liked it. So most of us agreed, and she slowly became known as Ann. Friend said, “She has always been Anna Belle and that is who she is, changing a name at 87 years old is silly.”
BUT when he asked her out and they (That OLD couple) started dating, She quickly became Ann. It was so obvious, all we OLD folk got a big smile out of it.
I was advised by my mama and daddy to ‘try’ to never say never.
Seriously about the ‘NEVER’ determinations. Everyone hates the word cancer. WE have all known those who took treatments and lived, we also know of the ones who did not survive. While they were well, I have heard people say, “I will never take Chemo!”. But when the Dr. said, you have cancer and your ONLY CHANCE is treatment, their tune changed. That is not a condemnation, I do not blame them. I am just saying until you are in ‘those’ shoes you really do not know what you will do.
Conversely, I have also known two incidents when friends who said NEVER, actually stuck to their decision. Their opinion was, “It would not be a quality life.” So they did not accept treatment and they are gone.
Life is not always black or white.
