Wanderings From Your President



We had our gathering that I mentioned in our last newsletter on the 1st of August.  When we counted up the number it was 80-81 people.  It was a good time had by all.  I was asked different questions about the family history, but I had not brought all of that with me this time, because it was more than just family.  It was old friends and from many different families that were related somehow.  That was what my oldest brother wanted.

I have had the following article for some time and thought this might be the time to use it.


10. They have a range of about 20 miles before they overheat, break down or run out of gas.

9. Only the owner knows how to operate the door to get in or out.

8. It is difficult to drive fast with all the fence tools, grease rags, ropes, chains, syringes, buckets, boots and loose papers in the cab.

7. It takes too long to start and the smoke coming up through the rusted-out floorboard clouds your vision.

6. The Jack Russell terrier on the toolbox looks mean.

5. They’re too easy to spot. The description might go something like this: The driver’s side door is red, the passenger side door is green, the right front fender is yellow, etc.

4. The large round bale in the back makes it hard to see if you’re being chased. You could use the mirrors if they weren’t cracked and covered with duct tape.

3. Top speed is only about 45 mph.

2. Who wants a truck that needs a year’s worth of maintenance, u-joints, $3,000 in body work, taillights and windshield.

1. It is hard to commit a crime with everyone waving at you. (www.gm-trucks.com)

Some of the above could be how we find relatives, not who we think they should be or how they should act.  Everyone should have a relative that we may not want to claim, but they belong to us anyway.
