1952 Henry J convertible New in '52 (When Ike ran for president)
I want to
talk politics, but I won’t. My dad pastored a church once that was about equal
Republican and Democrats. Pastors who had been there were beset with problems
because they let their political views be known. Before moving there I never heard political
discussions in a church, even at voting time.
We were there
during only one national election; back when Eisenhower and Stevenson were
running. Their supporters sat on opposite sides of the church. Everyone seemed to wear a political button for
There were some arguments and loud discussions
before and after church, but NEVER any nastiness and they were all friends.
I have said
this before. The first time dad spoke in that church he ANNOUNCED: Please don’t
ask my political views just know that I am whatever you are and we are all Christians.
(I never saw buttons with the candidates as couples! HEY wait, I just noted, that is the same wife.)
So I can’t talk politics now, it would not work,
LOL. But I will say this: I have dug
ditches in Missouri, North Carolina and Florida. If you must dig a ditch Florida is the ideal
place to dig. No pick or mattock needed. Just a shovel and maybe an axe for
roots. It really isn’t much work, BUT
let me tell you something, NC and MO you will WORK if you dig.
For now? We
moved. WE are back in Leesburg for a week.
PS: Remember LBJ and the Great society?
I never saw this button:
