Cars of the day:
We are all
special, we are unique. I am convinced that every life would make a movie
if a good producer could get inside a head.
We have all had incidences whether common or super different that
treated right would sell.
I just read a headline, “Mt. Etna Is Erupting;” Etna is the most active volcano in Europe. Located in Sicily. I remember and incident many years ago while stationed aboard the USS Independence, an aircraft carrier, we had a crew at the time of about 5000.
Announcements are passed over speakers thru-out the
ship up until 2200 (10PM) daily. Not a peep after, unless it is an emergency.
So imagine our surprise once in the Mediterranean Sea around midnight there is
a few bells over the speakers meaning 'listen.' “This is the Captain, We cleared
the straits of Messina an hour ago. Now if you want to see a once in a lifetime
show report to the flight deck and look Starboard. Mt. Etna is erupting, That
Most of us
got dressed and headed up. What a
magnificent sight. Better than a movie, Etna belched fire into the air and RED
lava rolled down the sides. The skipper slowed the ship so the entire crew would
get a chance to see it. Some things you
do not forget.
I know can remember their whole life, but some things YOU cannot forget. I am
sure mothers will never forget seeing her baby for the first time.
If you have received a traffic
ticket, I bet you remember that. What about being thrown from a Horse? Or the
HS football player who runs for a touchdown?
never forget my first haircut on Parris Island either, LOL. I ain’t even going to mention Sherry’s giving
me the first kiss. ;-O
PS: The Straits of
Messina are the waters between Italy and Sicily.
