Photo of the day:
Survived Bright's Disease as a child.
So for today:
I was too little to know, so of course, I do not remember poverty. I learned later that there were
times in my family we lived off biscuits and Hoover/gravy. You would have never
known it from my mama. We were fortunate
I would declare she could stretch groceries ‘til she died..
You know something? Fact, most of our leaders today have never worried
where the next paycheck was coming from, and that is a shame. They represent folks who have many times
squeezed that nickel until it cried.
Most have never worried about having a place to sleep or money for gas
to get to work or look for work. If ANYone
has NEVER HAD FO BUDGET, THEY CANNOT really understand the average citizen of
this great country.
you know Arnold Schwarzenegger homeless as a child lived in a van with his dad?
Believe me I really do appreciate those who fought the odds and were able to
make it and survive. Oprah was poor and Jim Cary at 12 had no phone, electric
and plumbing. Demi Moore and of course,
Elvis made it. Cannot forget Dolly and then Loretta Lynn the coal miner’s daughter.
The world tells the same stories, in England there was Dickens and Charlie Chaplin they knew 'Debtor's Prisons' and such.
For your info, Paul Anderson became a famous weight lifter and is touted as the STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD by Guinness Book of World records. He once back-lifted 6,270 Lbs (2844.024kg).
feel sorry for anyone who belittles THOSE who against all odds survived
and became famous. OR EVEN as much so, if they (you) survived, worked and raised a
family in this tough world. My dad said many times, ‘son, you do not know what
that man or woman you pass on the street is facing or has faced and survived!
to YOU my friends, I am just proud to have survived as long as I have, and met YOU
ALL, some wonderful folks.
PS: REMEMBER: THE SURVIVORS, not only from poverty, my friends, BUT surviving disease COUNTS ..... we do not have to agree with them, but you should respect WHAT they survived. Thanks for visiting We like to know you took the time to stop by..
