Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
GAMERS? Definitely not what our world today calls gamers. Sherry & I play a ‘partial’ game of dominoes together, we take 4 nights to complete a full game of dominoes. We then turn to our monitors and play 3 or 4 different card games on our computers most nights. Sherry started me at this. She is from a family of games and sports folk, even her mama loved cross word puzzles and bingo. The only games I grew up with were Sorry and Monopoly. Which I played with my older sister. None of those my parents played.
I think of it as a ‘brain exercise’ and try to win each of the three card games: FreeCell, spider solitary and just solitary. Sherry adds ‘Hearts’, to her list. I don’t know how to play that one.. I hope it is working, but I am not sure. LOL
I will never complete what is now called a ‘Bucket List’, I am fast running out of time. I am now pre planning my last biggie. I hope it comes about.
There were times in my life I would have liked to be a deep sea diver. I never really wanted to fly a plane. I had a friend whose aim was to fly. He and his wife got their pilot’s license, but never bought and flew their own plane.
A true story on a pastor we once had. He had his own plane, not a biggie, just a small prop job, but it could take a passenger, so he hired out for short hops.
He was flying a passenger from Eastern NC to Charlotte. When he noticed his fuel gauge said EMPTY. He asked the passenger if he was ready to meet the Lord. The passenger started praying after being told they would TRY to land on a busy highway. They did. Once on the ground the pilot realized he had not switched the fuel to reserve and had plenty of fuel.
After a lot of talk and paperwork and a ticket, the Highway Patrol cleared the road FOR TAKE-OFF. The pastor could not believe the passenger did not want to complete the trip! LOL True story; pastor took a lot of ribbing when the story hit the news.
