Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
thought for Today...
I can remember in my early life the high, up and thrill of Christmas morning and the season leading
up to it. It was all VERY BIG!
But then as the new wore
off the new toy and there were no more Christmas carols being sung; things
‘fell’ back into a regular routine, I can remember being ‘sortadown.’
As years past and I grew up. I learned that I had what many
people desired, an appreciation for
what I HAD. Very seldom have we bought something just because we wanted it,
but did not need it. Only once in my life do I remember getting ‘car fever’.
Against my sweetheart’s better judgement I traded our perfectly good car for a
1968 ‘almost new’ Chevrolet Malibu hard top. I learned a lot on that trade. It
was a good car but it was a 2 door. The one I traded was a 4 door car which
made perfect sense since we had two children.
Now even later in life I
realize how blessed I am. WE have had the down times, but over our entire 80+
years OVERALL the good
has overshadowed the bad. Of course the bumps
were tough but love and gratitude made them easier to ride out.
WE KNOW life has been
good for us. GOD has blessed us. Just as I am typing some of this entry; THE sweet Marian, from Pennsylvania
called to ‘say come on up for some homemade pumpkin pie.’ LOL! YEP, life is good. She and Dallas are well. There is a lot of good on
this internet. LOL There is a ‘sweet’ feeling to know that friends and family read
PS: Thanks to everyone who reads this stuff. It
makes an old man feel good.
