I'll tell you what that old man was a good one. He would call about twice a year needing help moving something or some such. He always had to feed you before he would let you leave. Then he would pour some stout and sit back and tell me about his life adventures right up till about dark. Drove a milk truck back when there was milk trucks. He sure was a good one.
I like to think that they are never really gone as long as we can keep the memory alive. And that is why we ought to strive to do something significant, memorable and good within our own lives while we are still here and perhaps pass on to those that follow.

It is also why I like to collect old stuff that I hang on my walls to remind me that they were once here. Stuff such as my mother's old lamp, some of my dad's old hand tools, my grandmother's old gospel hymnal from the early 1900s, my great grandparent's smoking pipe and wire rim glasses dating all the way back to the Civil War. These are my "ghosts".

I don't collect old antiques just because they are old. I only collect things that have somehow made it through the ages to touch my life and are really only meaningful to me.

Wouldn't it be nice to just have some little momento of that old man's life as a tail gunner on a B-25? Maybe something he carried such as the buckeye my grandfather carried in his pocket for a number of years and claimed it helped his arthritis. Those things are worthless in monetary value, but priceless.

Some people think I collect antiques, but I really don't....the ones I have belonged to my grandparents and great grandparents. When I walk in a room and see the old bed , oil lamps, dining table or buffet I feel a connection to my family that has gone on . It is so special to tell my granddaughter that the bed her great, great, great grandparents owned will belong to her someday. These "ghosts" hold me close, giving me a sense of who I am

There is nothing wrong with that. What would be worse is to be a bitter old sour person with no friends, family, or descendants. Some one that no one would even care when you pass on or would even remember.

The memories we have start to become our treasures, our strength.  Once we start taking notice to the memories to see the pain no longer controls us nor our memories we start to understand that it is in us to keep pushing through it all, it is in the remembering the memories we find are our "happy thoughts" the thoughts we use to defeat the darkness, the pain we thought would never leave.  Those memories become the grip we take back on our mind, body, heart, soul.

Wolf I dont know what they'll do with his farm. His only son died over ten tears ago and his wife died soon after. He spoke of his older brother passing away around seven years ago. I know everything he had was paid for. The state will probably end up getting his whole spread.
The last time I talked to milky he and one of the side gunners were the only two left out of a five man crew.
I wonder if his medals will go with him to the ground? I am not familiar with military procedures I am only an honorary member of the VFW, I guess I better call around and find out the arrangements. We will sure honor him, because he was a very honorable man. We used to kid him about being the milk man, you know....LOL But he was a good'n though, lived by the word.
I always said he was a good neighbor because I never seen him much, now I wish I had dropped in to see him more. Lesson learned.
Watch those storms AW they'll probably be on you about now I guess, and heading steadily my way. A good day to all.

Storm subsided for now. The VFW might be able to acquire those medals and put them in a frame and post at the lodge. Good day to all also. If this storm is headed your way. it is fierce.

I like peanuts. They're good in cokes, too. My grandfather taught me about that. I also like the peanuts and tossing the shells on the floor at Roadhouses. It makes for a real cool atmosphere. I tried it at McDonald's. But the workers behind the counter kept giving me dirty looks every time I tossed a french fry on the floor.
Ohhhh

Noticed a lot of nuts oh well. I guess, that's life. Drinky poo sure sounds nice right now.Too bad the Gentleman Jack is gone. Still got a bottle of gin...Better get too it.
That sun is playing peekaboo at the moment that sulky thing.
You all hang on to your britches and hopefully Kentucky won't get the winds Indiana,Ohio and Illinois have been experiencing.
Too bad there's no almonds around here...Lol.Fine day;)

I will take some corn bread crumbled up in a cold glass of milk. Grew up on that stuff packing it in a one gallon karo syrup bucket to a country school that had no cafeteria. Only problem was that it was not cold. LOL Oh the wonders of electricity.
