Sign of the Times part 1


 

This will be short and sweet. There are politicians, the press, and organizational leaders who are trying to seize unbelievable power for themselves by dividing us along religous, economic, and racial lines. No matter how truthful something sounds do not trust it until you check it out for yourself.

 

Remember the Russian proverb:

 

“Trust, but verify!”

I’ve been working on another “Paul Harvey” style historical story for you. But I didn’t finish it. This month I have my daughter. She lives 1,000 miles away and I don’t get to see her often. This week I spent most of my time sightseeing & clowning with my daughter, so I did very little writing. My daughter did get some writing done and I broke the number one rule of living with a writer. ‘Don’t disturb the writer while he/she is working. Yup she gave me the ole evil-eye for disturbing her work as you’ll see.

We also saw The Keeper of the Planes (a forty foot high steel statue of a planes Indian praying to the Great Creator), several trains, Hatman Jack’s, and we even got in some pool time.

All Aboard!


This week’s article is compliments of my daughter’s love of steam engines. This engine is what is known as a 4-8-4, believe me as you will see it is a very large steam engine.
