I have heard about the ‘crazy Aunt’ in the basement. I did have some ‘fun’ and wonderful aunts but never the crazy one.
I’m sure Sherry got tired of me always saying, I want one of those yellow things. Referring to the Big Cats, the bull dozer, loader and back hoe.
I see on the internet where some lady brings a painting into some appraiser and he says, “Whoa, you have a winner here. This has been lost for years, Van Gogh painted this. it is worth Millions.” I only have paintings I have done, so I will not find nor will my sons find valuable art in our storage. I do not have any ‘possibly’ valuable paintings.
(The above painting is worth millions, and I like it, but I do not know why? I have seen paintings done in 30 minutes I liked better)
Just recently I talked to my ‘OLD’ friend Dallas. He has a nice workshop. A place Marion banishes him to when he is in her way. He loves it, gets to tinker and play like a big boy. I miss it, I do not have a ‘boy’s play room anymore.’ (and I miss it)
Remember the Crazy Aunt I don’t have? The other thing often said ‘down south’ was the ‘RICH UNCLE’, I don’t have one of those either (Although I thought Uncle Irvin, Hisure, Fred, Roy, and Hershal were).
I don’t have a real dog, and haven’t for years. I miss one sometimes, but mostly I get my dog ‘fix’ with grand dawgs when they are around.
Everyone can tell of what they do not have, and there are times we dwell on those things. But in fact, most of us can start listing what we DO HAVE, and continue until we run out of paper or space.
At the time I am writing this several RV’s have been stuck in the soft earth. We have had a deluge, looking out it looks like we are in a lake, but inside it’s dry. We have water and power and INTERNET.
So I may not have that yellow thing, or a rich uncle, but I have much, much more, I have my health and WE have a loving family.
Life can be good without the Rich Uncle.
This is a rail maintenance vehicle. It is propelled by pulling and pushing those handle bars. That bar is reaching to the other rail on the railroad track. (I am trying to determine if that lady is working in high heels?)
