An interesting car
1959 GM Firebird III (prototype)
In my lifetime I have met people from many ‘walks of life.’ (My daddy's Georgia language.) I have heard many funny stories and incidents from people of my line(s) of work and others.
People, waitresses for instances, could tell you stories to make you laugh, cry or be disgusted. I am sure it is the same in every position on earth. Probably even where only animals are involved. This morning I looked in the maternity ward. And could see no Zorro (I changed his name from Zero to Zorro). Then I saw him. High on a stool looking down, confused. There was no way for him to get up there unless Stormy put him there. I guessed they slept there.
After seeing her up on the orange seat I made them a sort of a table. it is 20 inches above the floor.
But I digress (I like that stmnt). I met Rusty, Kennedy’s other Grandpa, at her birthday. After we introduced ourselves he asked, “Are you the author?” I told him I wasn’t really an author, but I had published some books. He continued, “I have several books in the works for 20 years, I just cannot finish them.”
My response to him, ‘many people are in the same position. Lots of good books have never been published.’ I asked, “What are the books about?” He listed three ‘categories or areas. One was, “What an Umpire Hears!”
He was a professional High School and Little League umpire most of his life. In my head I said ‘I knew it, there is a book in every occupation, I never thought about that one.’ He went on to recite a few and NONE were what I had expected to hear. None he listed to me were insults. That is what I had expected when he mentioned the subject. When I mentioned that is not what I expected, he said, “Oh there were insults too, of course.”
And you? All of you could write a book, some have. Others have actually started but never followed through. There is not a thing on this earth that is NOT interesting, when presented in the right way.
Write ‘YOUR STORY’. Do it for yourself or your family. I wish my parents would have at least made some notes? Hint, you can put it in print for no cost to you except the price of printing. The new technology is amazing. Check out Kindle.
Taken from a collection of notes left in milk bottles for the milkman, Enjoy:
