Car Memories
My first car.
A 1950 black  Ford Tudor, loaded with extras. A radio, heater and white wall tires. I bought it on my 21st  birthday, July 5, 1950 and paid cash for it, $1,200. Money I’d saved from my job at the railroad. (Those were the days.) Nine months later I was drafted into the U.S. Army and reluctantly kissed my first car goodbye.

What were some of your "first"?  I'd love to hear your comments.  Please post them on my Blog by Clicking Here.

Say Something Good 
A Yankee In Their Midst 
Ambience hell, when I sat down amongst that BoJangles Saturday Morning Gathering, it was a true North Carolina talkin’ mess, like a crash course in Advanced Southern Talk, 1-2-3 all crammed in together.

I’d been livin’ here in Hillsborough, North Carolina for eighteen years but even so I wasn’t prepared for the way this crowd was all hyped up with their special $1, twenty ounce sweet tea cups with free refills.

They was talkin’, all of them! I swear, all of them. Why there wasn’t one listener in that whole mess except me.  They grow a real crop of talkers here in North Carolina and it is a joy to hear all of them a goin’ on full speed like that. Southerners talk real slow but that sweet, sweet tea had kicked them all up a few notches and not only were they a goin’ full speed and the volume kept goin’ up, up, up until they was all a shoutin’ at one another and laughin' and smilin' and even hootin' some. They was.

RegistrationI’ll tell ya, it is a real joy when they get those morning farmers and all of those good ol’ Southern folks in Bo’s on a Saturday Morning and it is contagious.  A real joy!

May God Bless America and bring us world peace. Amen
