Early Cars nearly forgotten:
Let me start with a THANK YOU for your concern and advice. I have no doubt you are suggesting the logical, correct route for my health after my ‘cat-fight.’ I have a personal fault, it is one of ‘Show-me’. I lived in Missouri for a while, I guess I adapted a Missouri attitude, “The Show Me State.” IF I ‘felt’ ANY warnings I would do something other than first aid. (yeah, yeah I know, but………. Jack is one stubborn dude! Just ask Sherry or my boys.) :-O
Now I will meander some. I read the other day that Walter Cronkite was at one time considered the most trusted man in America. I can easily remember Walter. I remember that voice, and that look. I can remember ‘easily’ believing what the man said. A MAN, a reporter, a STATESMAN. I believe Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln were Statesmen. My heart cries for a real STATESMAN to arise in our GREAT COUNTRY, we certainly need one.
I remember reading that Walter’s life was the same on camera or microphone and off.
Nowadays I read headlines that say, “Shocking things you did not know about Mr or Mrs…XYZ!” Fill in about any famous name, one I remember lately was, “The shocking truth about Princess Di!” If you went to the story (which I DO NOT DO (ANYMORE)) it would probably be nothing, baloney or innuendos.
For some reason there is a built in ‘mental thing’ to pull someone down or off a pedestal. When I read things like that I remember my dad, forever in his mind no matter how successful he was, he remained a simple peanut farmer with a formal education of the 3rd grade. My dad once said, “You can’t be too tall if you must always pull everyone down.”
In my entire life the many sermons of dad’s I never heard him tear anyone down, he lifted people UP! Mama too, I was raised in a positive home, AND I AM THANKFUL.
Have a great Thanksgiving, BE SAFE!
Most of all.......BE THANKFUL!!
