Signs and Trials of the Road
Those cars of my youth (50’s)
The '53 MG
We have been hearing from Jack Jr. as he travels across country to see his son Ben and his granddaughter Elsie Mae in Utah.
He was so shocked at the devastation of the floods in Iowa/Nebraska. Talking of lakes where fields had been etc. Seeing it firsthand has pointed out much more pointedly the reality of what nature can do. He lived thru Hugo in a trailer and knew the effects of a hurricane, but the floods are so long lasting in effects and cover so much area.
But there was lighter moments, He sent this e-mail:
“Hey dad, they named a road after us out here in Wyoming!”
We take life as it comes. Everyone has their own unique problems. Humans bounce back. It is our nature.
In every trip there is a chance to smile. In South Carolina I always smile at the sign “Coosewhatchee Creek” and the signs announcing “Truth or Consequences” in New Mexico.
Jack is planning a trip to the Grand Canyon with the kids and I hope they have a great time.
Are there signs and places that make you smile?
