I think of so many things I want to say, many of them are just so random though that they are really just thoughts and nothing I could devote an entire post to. I have met some interesting people and heard some interesting stories.
This past week at work we had a man come in who was selling advertising for a local theater. He said that he would never forget March 13th. 65 years ago that day, he entered the service. He then spent 3 Christmas' in England. I thought that was an interesting way to mark time, by counting the Christmas' you missed at home.
Another lady told me of times during the war when everything was rationed and they couldn't get bananas. They then went to Canada to Niagara Falls and were able to get a big bag of bananas up there. She said they left peels all over that side of the lake.
We are so spoiled. We take so much for granted. Most of us will never know times like these people lived through. I'm sad that the older generation of today will not be the older generation we have in 20-30 years. We won't have these wonderful people who lived through the depression, the wars, the end of the 1800's and beginning of the 1900's. People who remember what life was like before cell phones, Internet, and microwaves.
I treasure every minute I get to spend with these people. It's just an added bonus that I get paid to do it.
