Our First Car…

Our first car was a second hand 1937 Studebaker. We were so proud. It did use a quart of oil every 100 miles. A cloud of smoke.

    It does look like a cloud of smoke.

    Do you have your turkey yet? Making pies?

    I love the thankfulness of Thanksgiving. I do not have a turkey. I am not making pies. I do have a thankfulness list started. What fun!

    OK Sharon. Tell all. Share your thankfulness list! Since there are just the 2 of us, we got a roasting chicken, no turkey. pumpkin pie. the whole tradition. We have what we started with – each other. And that is about as good as it gets! The Studebaker must be somewhere. But we have a 2000 Volkswagon Blue Beatle now.Now, that is class.

    Three to Share:

    I am thankful for…
    …a mate whose is fun and responsible
    …a real home as we appraised an small industrial property this week with metal industrial buildings and the owner, a Vetnam vet, had made himself a plywood cubby hole with sleeping area/toilet and called that hovel “home”
    …my “whole” body as the vet had a leg badly damaged in the war

    When we met the vet, I stood there in a mud puddle while it poured down rain and prayed for the vet and thanked God for my own blessings. It was an experience.
