Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
Above the 1939 Studebaker with 'suicide' rear doors.
For today My 82nd Birthday (and I can still walk around):
I know it is hard to believe but over the years my advice has been asked many times.
1. "Hey, hair question for you, Should I keep my duck's tail with my flat top?"
2. Which work-boot do you suggest, Craftsman or Dexter?
3. What is the best circular saw, Milwaukee or B&W?
4. What is the best hammer?
5. Is it better to buy wooded or cleared land?
The examples above are just to show I have been asked mostly about work and building related subjects.
The famous '39 Ford Notice the crank, this car could still be cranked without a starter.
No one has ever asked me about Airlines or Cruise ships. I seldom get questions of space travel. I do at times get simple questions concerning repair of the 50’s cars, I was pretty good at that.
I do get many questions asking which branch of service I preferred, since I have served on active duty in 3. In mind, I was military at 5 yrs old. I planned to join the military as soon as I possibly could, even tried under age. I actually liked them all.
USMC.. The best being standard in discipline. Promotions Okay. Some schools, Great camaraderie's to this day.
USAF.. Best duty, Great schools. Discipline lax and strong according to the base. Promotions the WORST (at the time I was in)..
USN.. Good schools and according to your job good duty. Promotions the BEST because you were tested against your peers thru-out the Navy. Our best duty station EVER was in the USN and that was isolated duty at GITMO.
NOW About a first? Sherry says to me today: “You have a text you need to answer.” And handed me the phone.
In my now 82 years, I have never had this kind of question. This one from Grandson Luke who is a young Bachelor:
“Grandpa, how do you make your beef stew? I am going to try that for supper.” I knew he loved my beef and gravy, it is good. I was sorta flattered.
