Memorable car of the day:
1954 Ford La Tosco , never in production.
I remember a line from a Bob Newhart show. He was the psychologist I think. A patient was explaining that a problem she had running around in her head and she could not control it. It was worrying her to death. He looked at her very concerned and said, “Stop it!”
I have found it easy to solve the other guy’s problems. Mine? That is a different story they are just too complicated for others to understand. LOL
In reality when I look around me and see some of the things others are suffering thru, I must laugh at my own set of ‘worries’.
I have said it a lot, as a matter of fact I said it again today to Son Jack; there are times I think I am HIS favorite. Of course I know that is not a valid statement, but God had been so good to Sherry & I personally, I am so blessed. Shucks, We are 4 days from our 65th Wedding anniversary.
We have never required much. We could have afforded a nice house with payments, but opted for much less. I smiled earlier today when I ran across the picture of a house we moved into. It was dilapidated and we had two boys. There was no indoor plumbing. It had a kerosene stove for heat. The boys like to think of that now, they can say they lived in a house with an outhouse.
We have grown from trailers to nice homes, but that was strictly management and hard work. What I am so thankful for is our health. I have spent the day in a hospital due to snake and dog bites, but never overnight. Sherry has been in overnight giving birth, but not for a serious illness.
So I just want to say in Writing, I thank HIM every day for his Blessings. No one knows what tomorrow holds, but for now, I am HIS pet.
I am smiling, I guess ‘pet’ is colloquial, down here if one kid seemed to be treated better than others at home or in school they were Daddy’s pet (my sister Shirley) or teacher’s pet, ME! LOL
