I think every human wishes (dreams); at times it is envy,
but not always.
(Even if in a traffic jam, most of us have wished we had chosen another route!)
In my youth as I read comic books, I wished many times I could fly like
Superman and Captain Marvel.
a kid, our family traveled a lot. Dad picked up hitchhikers back then. Many times
it made for interesting trips; learning others’ lives. I enjoyed it when dad
would pick up a man in uniform. Most of
the time he was headed home on ‘liberty’, or back to the base. I started
wishing I wore a uniform and could hitchhike.
Reading Pauline’s “Wanna Be Cowgirl” I was reminded of the Saturday
morning cowboy movies I slipped off to see. Shows (Movies) were a sin at our church, so I
did a lot of sneaking, knowing God would forgive me (OUCH). BUT I can remember wishing there were no cars
and we were back in real COWBOY times. I wished I was a cowboy!
I am smiling now thinking about my best friend in the USMC, Dallas
Fletcher. Cpl. Fletcher would hitch-hike
to Pennsylvania from NC many weekends and was never late making it back for
muster on Monday morning. He said he just had to go see that cute Marion. He
married Marion; I married Sherry, all 4 of us are still around enjoying 65
years of marriage. Marion kept having babies until Dallas found out what was
causing them. ;-). I found out after 2.
He is a slow learner. ;-0
I wished for years we could just
travel. And we eventually did. WE took only 3 cruises. Then Covid hit, now that
is out. BUT today as you read this we should be ON THE ROAD, a few hours from
Sherry will be studying for her medical tests next Monday. Sunday she will
really study, Smart a-- Buddy SAID, ‘I hope everything comes out all
right as she ‘studies.’ Seems everyone
makes jokes about a colonoscopy. Buddy
even suggested she have the DR. do the Endoscopy before the colonoscopy.
Methinks that is probably a good idea!
way we are hoping and praying all the reports will be good and she will pass
with ‘flying colors.’
Speaking of wishing,
Sherry WISHES this was all OVER & DONE!
