To update our location, We are now in an RV park called Southern Palms. It is huge but not full because most of us snow birds and wanderers have headed to places unknown.
I was raised in a era of TRUST. When a man or woman's word was their BOND. A handshake was as good or better than a signed notarized contract. I have been very cryptic lately and I am sorry, but somethings cannot be published on this or other public sites.
Years ago I lost my then, best friend. He was my BIL, Sonny Helms. As I felt the weight of his Casket I looked every pallbearer in the eye and said, "Boys, if you ever told this man a secret of yours, it is in this casket!" To me that is one of the best testimonies to a FRIEND!
In the last two weeks I have dealt with two small business men. Neither were as good as their word, I was very disappointed. I did not lose anything except the trust I had put in them.
I hope you have a friend you can confide in. I am fortunate enough to have my best friend as a wife. At times lately I am afraid she gets tired of my whimpering. ;-O
Thoughts: When I was a young man, just starting to drive I heard, "There is a man in Texas that developed a carburetor that will get a car over 50 miles to a gallon. But the Oil Men had him killed and his invention is in a safe. They never want to lose that oil and gas money!"
Did I believe that? Not half!
Today I heard that there is a cure for cancer but the drug folk and Doctors do not want it exposed, they would lose too much money. Do I believe that? No sir, I do not.
I wondered if the same thing was said about a cure or a prevention for Polio? If so, Jonas Salk did not know about that and became famous and a savior for us kids. My girl and I were in different towns at that time but we both remember the fear, and pictures of the Iron Lung machines holding hundreds of kids. We knew people who died and others who were crippled by that terrible disease.
NO! My belief is that there are many honest doctors and scientists who would love to find that cure. I trust that many work day and night for a cure and they hate that nasty disease. We who have lost loved ones to that filthy killer hope it can be eradicated.
Sorry to ramble...
