1934 Studebaker Dictator
Fishing in Key West, Sherry once pulled in a 20 pound fish; when I looked it was not hooked. SURPRISE to me (and the Grouper) it had swallowed the little Snapper she had caught.
When I could hear my music of choice was country. I once heard a song, ‘Shutters and Boards’ on the radio sang by a guy named Charlie Pride. He became my favorite. It was a SURPRISE to learn he was a ‘Black’ Country singer. We were privileged to see him once live on a USO tour in GITMO bay, I was saddened to hear of his death this week. I enjoyed his music as much as any professional singer I ever heard.
I spent many years in the military knowing many men and women thru the years. We kept in touch with two or three. I was very SURPRISED to learn that a good friend, a computer repairman from the Independence, actually read my blog and lived in the same town in Florida where we were at the time. We were neither very religious in the USN so I was shocked when meeting with him to learn he was now a leader in the Orthodox Church, Protodeacon Michael Malanowski!
THERE I was SURPRISED with a Birthday Party featuring a homemade Pineapple upside down cake baked by Holly, DL’s wife. It was delicious and fun.
Visiting a local church where JJ was the music director. His twin sons attended with him. We knew Stephen played the guitar there, but were PLEASANTLY SURPRISED to see his twin, Joshua, on the piano playing like a professional. We had no idea he played the piano, and we saw them regularly, just never at their church.
Sherry just had a meeting on the internet. A BIG SURPRISE from a pretty little girl we
knew at a church in Moberly Missouri, Connie in the 1960s.
We were close friends with the family and together very often. WE had lost contact. This is gonna be fun. Oh, she has been married 45 years and has grand kids! Is that possible. LOL
The internet can be a wonderful tool, for SURPRISES!
