I read a comment by my friend Darla up in the North Woods. She mentioned about having a little problem with a smart phone. I e-mailed her back telling her about the time I was leaving the Appalachian Trail and Sherry had sent a smart phone with me. It was raining and I was at a trailhead and was trying to text Sherry, but the phone was on 'CAMERA' and I had no idea how to get it off. Sitting there under my poncho rain dripping and about to cry when a sweet lady hiker happened by. In two seconds she fixed it for 'grandpa', smiled and was on her way.

I am honestly laughing now as I type. Once Sherry niece mentioned xxxx, and Sherry said 'who?' Sherry said she looked at her like she had lived under a rock.
I try not to continually mention 'the good years' to kids because they are having their own 'good years'. So I confine my thoughts to the blog, Sherry and old folk I know. HA!
I know I cannot comprehend the complexities of
some of the new electronic world, but then most of these kids could not set the points on a 1953 Chevy either. (Not that they are ever going to face the challenge. LOL)
Challenges are different. At one time some of us looked for a hill to park our cars on so it would roll off and start. Now the kids must figure how to get the money to BUY the battery because FEW cars will start with a roll or a push.
No matter the challenges of life, we all do our best at facing them head on. Really most of us do a pretty danged good job of it.
Below is a picture of my friend Buddy's Mustang, he loved that dude.
