A wise old saying
A lot of years ago my Grandpa Wilbur uttered a bit of advice which has stayed with me ever since. He shared it with a great deal of humor, and indeed it's funny as hell the way he said it, but there's a solid core of truth at the heart of the thing.
"Never stand up when you can sit down, never sit down when you can lay down, and never lay down without going to sleep."
Red has the right of it.
Here's Grandpa and Grandma Helen out for a lark shortly before they were married. I think they were 19 and 17. That's Grandpa's brother Dornie and his wife Georgie in the background.
Grandpa on left and Dornie at right. Don't know who the other two are, one appears to be a sojer boy. Image appears to have been mad the same day as the one above.
Grandpa and me! Right at 18 years before I joint the navy.
Grandpa and Grandma still having fun as an elderly couple in their (gulp) mid-50's.
Today on what was once Grandpa and grandma's ranch:
Be well and enjoy the blessings of Liberty!
That is all.
