Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
Early today I spoke to a young lady who is a friend and went to
work for the Forest Service in Florida. It has been a couple years since seeing
her. Of course I asked, “How is the job going?”
“Great, I’m working without WORKING.” Then said, "I love my job, it is what I
have always wanted to do."
I thought how good it is to do something you enjoy doing and get
paid for it. Most of my jobs over my life have been that way, only once I
remember being so miserable in a job, it wasn’t any fun to go to work. I
learned it is hard to work for an idiot. LOL
I have known a couple
teachers who LOVED their job and you could tell it. But even those I would bet are glad to see
summer come. We have a neighbor who teaches. They just left for a 6 week
holiday, in the swamps, on the Ocean, on a lake, and seeing the Florida Keys
The teacher’s hubby has just retired. He has taken time to do some
Genealogy study. He printed some of the things he found and I really enjoyed
reading it. His Great great great uncle Hiram Bell was in the Civil War. He had kept a
diary of his tour. He was a commander of troops. It was an informative read.
Like many things I have heard, more people were lost to disease than combat. He
was very sick most of the time but still tried to do his job. He ended with a
“I probably suffered
as much as any soldier but contributed less than anyone to the war effort.”
Do you do any genealogy studies?
PS Just for fun I did a google.
It was not a diary, but a book I did read some of it on line. I have never read a personal account of anyone who participated in our UNCIVIL War. it was interesting.
