Transportation of the day (night):
We have decided to exchange cards, no presents this year. So I complied. I wanted a ’55 Chevy Bel Aire but she asked, “Where would you put it?” That killed that idea. ;-(
Someone asked me the other day what was the best Christmas Present I received as a kid. I don’t even have to think, all my life I have remember the thrill of the 20” bicycle. It was a used Indian make and I was with dad when he bought it for $5. That was a full day’s wages! We took it home in the trunk of dad’s ’41 Chevy and put it up until Christmas Morning.
I was 17 she was 18 (an older woman). That day I knew she was mine and I was hers for life…… (She says “So Far”!)
I know y’all get tired of hearing it, but we have been married over 65 years. I am not being nice here, but it is a fact I was a jealous sucker and at times life it was not fun for her. But she put up with it, thank the Lord. A lesser lady would have told me, “Hit the Road Jack!”
(I carried that picture in my wallet for years on deployments (USN cruises)
Am I blessed, fortunate, lucky or WHAT? The bonus of all that is she was beautiful when we married and she is right now,
So when you read this Sherry, this is your Christmas Card and I love you to pieces. (Please keep me!) Jack
To Sherry and ALL who read this.
