Knowing IT, thinking IT and speaking IT!

 Memorable Automobiles from The Past:


For today:

We remember things in our lives.  Somethings heard and seen will stick . Others will be hid in the crevices of your mind and hard to find.  Of course you already know that.

Just after WWII Lots of BIG Airplanes were sold and of which some people made homes others became businesses.

On one trip of my childhood, our traffic was blocked on a NC road. Dad and I got out to see the problem, I was 6 years old. There sat a flatbed truck hauling a big Bomber Airplane body and it was wedged under an overpass. It would not budge. An old man walked up to the driver and said, let the air out of the back tires and she’ll move. It did.

I bet  this house below does not leak!

Truckers, I love’em.  They move everything you use in life. We had a lot of truck drivers in our family.  Driving an RV I find very few indignant drivers, most are courteous and I give them the road when possible, I know they are working, I’m playing.

A quote from Victor here in Blogger’s life lately is this: “Our Lord sends an invitation to heaven, we are welcome, but we must RSVP!”  Good one.

I will never forget this quote by a truck driver. Sherry and I met him on one of our walks back in Belmont. He quoted from his yard boss, “I can’t play a piano, but I can listen and know whether you can or not.”

That took a minute to register, but ain’t that the gospel?

YES! There are things that should be remembered and others that should be hid in the crevices of our minds. I don’t like it when some of those things that should stay hid, work their way up front.


PS: From the papers of kids in a Christian School:

That quote is excellent! I am glad that this post flew, and didn't crash. The WW2 planes were wasted after the war. They were used for bombing practice with planes filling up on a field.

Love that saying about a piano player! Sharing it with Tom -- as soon as he comes out of the rain, that is. I know he'd love one to trade his RC workshop for one those surplus planes. Building planes inside a plane ... what a hoot!

PS - I was always taught to look at OTR truckers for the best diners, the best coffee and roadside assistance. Not so sure that's the case anymore?

Thank you for the kind mention, Jack. Much appreciated.

I did not know that Moses brought down the Ten Commandments. I thought it was the ten condiments.

God bless.

Truckers don't get the credit they deserve for the hard work they do!

There are days that the crevices of my mind are harder to find than others and then I have days when they keep opiening up new things easily. Thankfully I have more good days than bad ones. I agree about truckers being so valuable. They get all the stuff delivered to our stores so we can have them. They go through all kinds of weather to do so too. Good subject today ! Thanks for your words of wisdom!

Goodness, the things the truckers can haul. On I35 a few times we saw only one blade per truck off a wind turbine. Those things are massive. Your title today reminded me of see no, hear no, speak no evil...🙈🙉🙊. It's not always so easy but it's the Christian things to do. Mom has the most awesome memory for 92. I'm so much at a loss most the time.
loven'hugs from up north where Bill finally found a plow truck. He'd looked all winter so we're now prepared for Next winter.
