Memorable car of the day:
1959 Chevrolet with a distinct Continental.
(Continentals' of the 50s, Sent from friend Buddy, I believe this body is extended 16 inches!)
(Update: WE are at 'Three Flags RV REsort'. WE enjoy getting a chance to meet with friends from NC . Don & Evelyn are here for the winter. We will be here about 2 weeks, we hope)
(The Welcoming committee, Sand hill Cranes!)
Over my life I met people who were never given gifts at BDs or Christmas. I have met men who said mess hall food was much better than they had back home.
I have known people who did not know their father and some who did not like their mother. One lady I knew said, “If she wasn't my mother I wouldn't even like her!”
That is sad. Growing up I always received a present at my birthday and Christmas. I was always loved. Later I even received GIFTS!. I don’t remember much to-do bout mom and dad’s BDs, BUT they always did something special for Shirley and I on ours.
Presents are always nice, but I already have everything I need. However, each year I almost catch up with my sweetheart in birth years. BUT the girl is always one number ahead of me and for a couple months she is 2 numbers ahead of me. LOL .. I am fortunate to have the love of my life with me, her presence can LIFT me over all other obstacles. BUT………..
It is still hard to comprehend still living in our 80s, much less still having each other. NOW I want to fuss. Remember when I said she had to pay a toll when we passed? HA! She has refused to pay a toll for WEEKS now. Kisses are as lost as dry bones in the Southwest deserts! This keeps up I will forget how to kiss! To top it all when you can’t kiss, that also prevents the other accompanying benefits and thrills.
PS: Sherry refuses to give me back my cough!!! No matter how hard I beg, she wants to keep it to herownself! (Sorta selfish don’tchuthink)
