Car of the day…
Now for Today:
I left home at 17. I was raised in small towns. Property rights were respected. You could buy a lot build you a house and call the electric company. They would come out, look at the electrical work, if it looked good to them they would hook you up. If not you would fix what needed to be done and then they hooked up the power.
My great grandpa’s house was built in the mid-1800s using big rocks as pillars to hold it level. It is still standing today near Toccoa, Georgia. Some people stacked blocks to build on. There was no requirement for a foundation.
On Bivouac, talking to some guys from the NY, NJ areas and learned that they had to get permission to build or change their own homes. I made a statement, “I can’t believe all that, That will never happen back in the south. WE will never be told what we can do with our OWN House!!”
LOL That was youth speaking.... Ignorance is BLISS... I learn slow but I learn.
When I became a General Contractor I learned very soon that “YES, it can and did happen down South!”
That is also one reason I smile when my friends say LOUDLY, “The government will NEVER TELL ME WHAT TO DO!”
Mostly concerning face masks and vaccines. I had never taken a Pneumonia Shot. But when I was told I had to take the shot to get my Cochlear Implants, I immediately drove to a Walgreen Drug store and got one.
Now, if I was still in the military and they said take the shot or you are OUT, I would definitely take the shot, because I was making a career out of the service. If I was dissatisfied with the military, I just might welcome that excuse to be discharged.
Honestly if I had a great job and the choice was take the shot or leave, I would take the shot. BUT that is a PERSONAL opinion, a logical one for me, a no-brainer.
After a talk with my doctor, whom I admire and respect, I am in the process of being immunized. I will get my second shot here in Florida in the couple weeks.
I truly hate it that is has become a political FOOTBALL! Intelligence and logic say % wise, it is smart to be vaccinated. All my doctor said in the end was, “Do the math!”
Wouldn’t you be upset to be dying and KNOW, “IF YOU HAD BEEN IMMUNIZED, MOST LIKELY THIS WOULD NOT BE HAPPENING!” I like Dr. Coutts,,,, (2nd shot in 10 days)
