Memorable car of the day:
I had sort of a pleasant experience. I read Sean of the South. Jean’s daughter Sheila introduced me to his blog. I read and commented for years. Then a year or so ago when I made a comment, it said ‘Posting’, but never posted. That continued.
A day or so ago I made a comment and low and behold it took. Sean was talking about the house they live in and was wondering the stories the walls held.
Growing up until I left home for the USMC, I lived in parsonages. Once married we lived in rented trailers and apartments. WE decided to buy a house trailer and it would be ours, except for the $12 a month to park it. Yep, that is what the lot costs were when we bought our first 32’x8’ trailer. WE traded for a 42x8 and lived in it for many years.
I read once that someone was working on a way to 'lift' layers of words imprinted on wall surfaces over the years. They were seeking to bring to life the stories walls have heard. That is far fetched, but so was a cell phone in 1951! LOL
Since retiring from the Military we lived in 4 different homes in the Belmont, NC area. Three of which we built. Those walls shared only our family stories until about 1999 when we decided to rent it out and hit the road. So now there are stories we do not know in that home.
Funny thing about Sean of The South, I just read his entry ‘Haters’ and made a comment and it did not take. Now I wonder, and wonder. Maybe? I will learn, it is something I do not understand…..
BTW I just read Betty’s entry about ‘Income’. Did you know that some people do not pick up their pay checks? Imma wondering if I could get on a list for folks paycheck that don’t want it? Just thinking!
Y’all have a great day!!!! I feel pretty good today. NICE!
PS: Ponce de Leon’s search for the fountain of youth worked, so now we have enough youth. How about a Fountain of Smart?"
PS2 Is 'Far fetched' still a good use of words?
