Our USA, our lives..What happened? What will Happen?
Cars of beauty:
1985 AMC Eagle
Entry for Monday:
I have a couple grand children who can work from home. Some of my family works courier service and construction, there is no stopping their work. But what happens to those who cannot go to work and there is no way their job can be done from home? That hurts, that rankles.
Today and tomorrow will be spent getting ready for another short trip. The short trip is driven by the fact we just might take a long trip a little later. They are connected in a way.
We are looking for a place for the winter in Florida and our age is driving ideas. We know that even if our health holds out, it would be best not to be driving the coach (26,000 pounds of vehicle) on busy highways after 86 yrs. of age, at the latest. For our remaining time if we have good health after mid 80s, we hope to still winter in Florida. We could then fly down, or hire one of the Grands to drive us down and come back after us, Etc.
Let me ask a question. Is there anyone buried now, that you just KNEW that they would attend your funeral?
In the past few years I have attended funerals of friends and family that due to their family history, their health and stamina, I KNEW THEY WOULD OUTLIVE ME, but they haven’t.
Of course we cannot predict life, we all know that, but we feel we should still plan.
We have lived our lives the best we know how, I think everyone does. I want to leave this old world doing something I love or pass away in my sleep, BUT, but I remember a quote attributed to Minnie Pearl:
“IF you want to make God smile, tell HIM your plans.”
