For Hypatia

Something I stumbled upon.  I think you like this sort of thing so I am passing it on… (Hopefully all my “text” editing will carry through the posting.)(nope, it just bumbled it all together…)

The Train of Life
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents,
and we believe they will always travel on our side.

However, at some station
our parents will step down from the train,
leaving us on this journey alone.

As time goes by,
other people will board the train;
and they will be significant
i.e. our siblings, friends, children,
and even the love of your life.

Many will step down
and leave a permanent vacuum.
Others will go so unnoticed
that we don’t realize
they vacated their seats.

This train ride will be full of joy,
sorrow, fantasy, expectations,
hellos, goodbyes, and farewells.

Success consists of having a good relationship
with all passengers
requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is:
We do not know at which station
we ourselves will step down.

So, we must live in the best way,
love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are.
It is important to do this
because when the time comes for us to step down
and leave our seats empty
we should leave behind beautiful memories
for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life.
Reap success and give lots of love.
Lastly, I thank you
for being one of the passengers on my train.

(By the way, I am not planning to get off the train anytime soon
but if I do, just remember I am glad you were part of my journey.)

Tearjerker alert

Vietnam Marine veteran in New Mexico hospice care reunites with beloved dog one last time

This may be the other way around, he may be waiting at the “Rainbow Bridge” for his beloved pet.

Sorry, but this brought tears to my eyes, this veteran is just about a year older than I am and I think that maybe sharing it is the right thing to do.... [Read More]

I could say there’s a time for every season…

but that’s too damn darn poetic for the likes of me.

Had to buy a new washing machine tonight. Another Whirlpool, will I ever learn? First Whirlpool lasted 24 years, (with repairs I made). Second one lasted 8 years, with a few minor repairs, but the transmission went, the agitator would only go in one direction, when it was supposed to go the other way it made a horrendous grinding noise. So…... [Read More]

A twist on “WhatIsIt”, a “where is it” picture…

OK, here’s the drill…

You may or may not know where this is, those that do, sit back for a while and see others fumble at it. I am open to “private” guesses via messages…….... [Read More]

Way back when….

To tell the truth, I never saw the early episodes of this somewhat famous TV series. I was perusing YouTube and I stumbled upon this; The Clampetts Strike Oil   TV was much simpler back then. Somewhat funny, but enjoyable never the less.

I invite you to take it in, this so called first episode of The Beverly Hillbillies. Enjoy the trip down memory lane to September 26 1962.
