Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
1957 Rambler Cross country. Great car and good mileage. I wish the Rambler had not died.
Currently, the United States has five major U.S. territories: American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Each such territory is partially self-governing that exists under the authority of the U.S. government.
Sherry and I have had some very pleasant talks over breakfast and supper lately. We share a lot of the same interests, but are different in many ways. Her early life was centered in Belmont, NC, mine over several towns in NC. She has many lifelong friends I have less than 5, methinks. She is cold natured and I am a lizard.
Sitting at breakfast this morning, I noticed she was drinking out of a cup from Cuba and mine said Alaska on it. “Hey you’ve been to Cuba?”
“Why yes, lived there once for about 4 years. I also lived in Key West.”
“Well I went to Alaska once with a pretty lady; so there!”
We both laughed. That being two extremes of a diagonal line across the USA; Southeast to Northwest. I said yes baby and we have crossed that line making a big ‘X’ from extreme Southwest, San Diego (Tijuana, MX) to Nova Scotia in the Northeast..
That started us talking about our lives and travel. It also brought up USA possessions. We have been in all 50 states, but only 2 of its possessions. WE have been to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, but not Samoa, Guam or the Mariana Islands. They were places we NEVER planned to go. Of course since they were never high on the list it will probably never happen. Ireland is far above those possessions or territories of the USA, for a visit.
I try not to say NEVER. One doesn’t knows what life will throw your way. Something might pop up saying "IRELAND," VERY LOUD! ;-)
PS . I have had fun being here. I have even kept a fire going in the rain. Getting out has allowed me to straighten the picnic area and start on my trail. I have several dead falls to cut up. Keeping busy while waiting for word from Ypsilanti on Johnny’s insurance status.
