Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
We humans are all different. I like the familiar saying, “Be yourself, everyone else is taken!” As for me, I have always found it hard to ‘memorize’. In math & Trig I was fortunate, formulas came fairly easy. Being a preacher’s kid I was expected to memorize a lot of scripture, that was hard for me.
I consider myself fortunate, while in school, the Bible was still used and foremost. Even up to high school until I dropped out, students volunteered to read a verse from the Bible and pray a short prayer over the school speaker systems. I never knew a student who resented that or complained. I said that because one of my third grade assignments I public school was to memorize the 23rd, 24th and 100thy Pslam over the year. I still remember the 23rd and 100th to this day.
Even today Son J Jr. loves to memorize chapters at a time in the Scriptures.
When I was in the 4th grade, I remember my dad ‘booked’ an evangelist who was known as “The Walking Bible” for a revival. Even as a kid it was amazing to hear a sermon that was ‘scripture’ from beginning to end. I am not sure he had memorized the entire Bible, but to me he had. LOL
The above was when I was a kid. BUT when I joined the USAF I had a Staff Sgt that had a ‘photographic memory’. I could actually open a phone book (remember those? LOL) He would look at a page for a few seconds, then tell you anyone’s phone # on that page. You could not ask him 30 minutes later, but he could hold a ‘shot’ o that page for a few minutes, then it was gone.
Now since my late 50s I have been an avid reader. I am not a ‘fan’ of the classics, but I have read some. The Tale of Two Cities, the Prince and the Pauper, The Mayor of Caster Bridge and Bleak house. I actually enjoyed all except Bleak House. I have been reading on it for 3 years (about a few pages at a time) and have no idea why I continue.
Except the Bible, is there any book you would like to memorize? I think I would like to memorize Tom Sawyer, but only to use ast stories for my great grands..
