Rambling mind

It’s been another one of those weeks. We had some random thoughts on various subjects, so we’ll list some here.

We went for a walk today, nothing different there, but we noticed a few things. Saw a guy filling his bird feeder so it seemed like an opportunity for an inquiring mind. I asked him why they call it bird seed if it doesn’t get planted, won’t grow birds, and is used for feed? He politely told me to move on.

And if walking can add minutes to your life, does that enable you at 89 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $7000 per month.

A lot of people say we’ll feel better if we excercise more; I feel I’ve gotten enough excercise lately just getting over the hill.

If you teach a child to be polite and courteous; when he grows up, he’ll never be able to merge his car onto the freeway or drive in a big city.

And why is it that lately we’ve been junk mail telling us we’ve won a free gift? Aren’t all gifts free?

If protons have mass, does that make them Catholic?

Walking past a gas station got us to wondering; do you remember full service, getting your windshield cleaned and tires and oil checked? If you remember that, you’d have to remember Green Stamps.

Remember when the 57′ Chevy was just about everybody’s dream car to cruise in, peel out, or watch the submarine races?

And we remember Drive-In movies,Drive-In Restaurants, going steady, getting your bumper height checked by the police, and cruisin’ the ones.

We know a mind is a terrible thing to waste, but we couldn’t help ourselves. The world was getting too serious. Comments on just about anything are welcome.

    I have been wondering what is the deep seated basis for your pessimism and now I know, Your one of those losers who made a bad choice in life. You lust after a 57 chevy when the real winners in life lust after a 58 chevy.

    …or the ’55.
    really though, it sounds silly to talk about the aesthetics of all those model years because they’re all gorgeous designs, but i truly do think the 57 – although most popular – is the least neat looking. i like my fins like the 58, not like the 57.

    I like them all.

    I never said I liked the 57′ Chevy, I have a favorite but that isn’t it. I also think they’re all neat.

    😆 Great stuff. I can remember mom saving green stamps (and Gold Bond?) stamps when I was just a small hillbilly running around the yard and nearby fields playing with bugs, chasing critters and hunting for fossils. Now the stamps (which was not much of a value if you ask me) are gone and the fields are being gobbled up by needless ugly urban sprawl. And the cars are designed for ants mindlessly traveling from concrete ant hill to concrete ant hill unaware of the world of which they are traveling in. Most are too busy doing nothing to stop and smell the roses unless they have been contained inside a building or harvested and plasticized.

    scoundrel,
    We think if you saved 10,000 stamps you could get a plastic plate, or something of equal value. We agree with what you’re saying, everybody else seems to be in a hurry to get somewhere 24/7.
