There have been some songs and great stories in this world having to do with lists. One of the biggest hits in the last few years was “Schindler’s List”.
We have become a nation of lists:
1. Top ten athletes, teams, trophies, cars, hikes, bridges, models, actors, etc.
2. Top cities of: poverty, wealth, To die in, to live in, the healthiest, the smoggiest, etc.
3. Then the Bucket List. Must be things to do before you kick the bucket.
4. Christmas List, Places to See, etc.
Lists are unending!
In our motor home we have our list. Size is about 4”x 4”, it is on the kitchen counter in front of the microwave. It consists of two lists in one. On the left is Groceries needed, on the right is ‘Other things’ (Or NOT groceries).
It is the ‘Other things’ list that caused a smile this morning. As I started to add, I read:
2. Card for Johnny
4. ‘Mouse’. ?????!!!!!!!
How the world has changed, WHO IN THE WORLD WOULD PUT ‘MOUSE’ ON A ‘TO GET LIST’?
Then I thought, didn’t women in the 30’s and 40’s use a ‘rat’ to roll their hair around?
(This is a 1940’s hair rat)
Anyway it just struck me funny. Sherry needs a new mouse, her’s died !
STILL ON MY TO GET LIST:
Thanks for stopping by. I am glad the ‘Shipslog’ is on YOUR LIST!
It is impossible to do NOTHING! (Well not impossible, if you are dead.)
The 1956 Packard, the year we were married!
