Drivein Cool Cat

coolcat A buddy and I decided to double date and take our girl friends to a drive in movie. Our girl friends had moved from Adel GA., to Valdosta Ga., which was twenty-one miles away as the crow flies. We dressed up in our cool outfits and headed south to pick up the girls.
We had worked all week in the tomato field and now that we had a pocket full of money it was time to spend some of it on our beautiful girl friends. Friday night was always a good time to go to the movies. After picking up the Girls, we headed on down the road to the drive in. We went to the concession stand and bought the good things like, pop corn and coca cola. As you all know, no movie is good unless you have those two things to munch on. The movie is better and the concessions are always lip licking good!
About half way through the movie I had this weird feeling come over me. My Mom was pregnant with my youngest sister who we named after birth “Johnnie Lou Glisson”. My mom had been having a lot of problems during her pregnancy. My Dad was working out of town at the time. My two Sisters were at home, but they were too young to help her.
As I sat there watching the movie I kept on having this feeling I should go home. I told my buddy and my girl friend that I had to go home because I was worried about my mother. They said “ok”. So we left early and took the girls home.
Arriving at home I asked my buddy if he would wait a few minutes while I went inside to see if my Mother was ok. Mom was awake. I said “Mom are you ok?”, she said “I am fine son”. She asked me why I was home so early. “Well, Mom I heard a voice that said go home and check on your mom!”.
“Son you are a sweet Boy”.
“Thanks Mom”.
“Like Mother like Son”!

When you have a minute always call your Mom.

Thought For The Day

The One You Love;
Appreciate when you sit beside her and hold her hand talking about your life with her. Remind her how much you love her and always want to be next to her throughout life. Reminisce about the moments you had good times together laughing, playing, and having fun. Your loved one is the most important person in your life. So always remember all of the important days. Being alone is not good, so enjoy all the times you can with the one you love. I love my wife.

Now In The Forest

As I set there in the small clearing, there were Birds singing, and one special male Red Bird caught my attention. I was wondering why it was dancing around on the ground and fluffing its wings. After a few minutes another red bird came and landed next to him. Now I think you know the rest of that little story.
I had rested and it was time to explore the rest of the area. You had to be there with me to see the beauty around me. There were beautiful flowers growing here and there, and I could not resist picking one of the yellow flowers to take home with me as a reminder of what I had seen in the forest.
The next thing I found was an arrow head. Holding it in my hand I was wondering if it could have been made by the Cherokee Indians. Being part Indian myself, I stuck the arrow head in my pocket to check it out later when I got back home.
Moving across to the other side of the clearing I sat down on a log. The warm sun shining on my shoulders and the smell of pine needles in the air. I felt relieved of the long walk it took to get here, and then out of the corner of my eye a Jack rabbit was sitting and looking at me. We set silent looking at each other and I was wondering what the rabbit was thinking and I am sure we will never know.
Well it’s time for me to head back home. I am glad that I made the decision to walk to the middle of the forest. Now I have wonderful memories of what I found, and they will stay with me for a long, long time to come.
This is the thought of the day. We will never know who walked this path before me. But the arrow head may know.

The Forest!

Who’s to say what goes on in the middle of the “forest”? I decided I would make an adventure and find out for myself!

The day before, I had looked at my map to see how big the forest was. According to my maps it was about twelve miles wide. I knew I needed to be at the center of the forest by noon if I was to get back to before darkness enveloped me.

Just what might one see if you walked to the middle of the forest? Maybe things that creep, crawl, jump, fly, and run? What about those little things that might scare you on your way there? I know I imagined a lot of things, but, think about it…

What if you were standing on the edge of a big forest and you could see a little way in past the trees, and the bushes? You might think about what may be moving around beyond the trees, keeping an eye on you. I thought about it for a few minutes. Do I walk to the middle of the forest and find out? Let’s look at it this way. We don’t know if there are bears, wild hogs, or even black panthers in the woods. So do we dare go walking deep into the woods? I personally wanted to know, but do I go by myself?

I was pondering over the idea so I sat on a stump just outside the forest. I had a notepad and pencil, and it was a nice day. As I sat there writing down the things I would need “if” I decided to walk to the middle of the forest.

The following day I had made up my mind, I was going to do it by myself! As I entered the edge of the forest I remembered how quiet things seemed here just the day before. I was looking around at the trees, bushes, and the few wild flowers. Everything was so beautiful! As I moved on I heard a noise in front of me. I stopped, after a few minutes this big white Jack Rabbit jumped out of the bushes! A little startled but I still managed a smile. As I continued walking through the woods I was thinking about what Bob had said to me about distance “You can walk about five miles in eight hours through the woods”. I knew I had to keep moving if I was going to make it to the center of the forest by noon.

I had been walking for about two and half hours, I was getting closer! Just one more hour and I should be there! So far I had been lucky, no problems as of yet. The wind had picked up, and the trees were swaying back and forth making a beautiful whispering noise. It’s amazing to experience how nice it is out here enjoying all the beautiful sounds of the birds, crickets, and all the creatures you can’t see.

I was getting a little tired, so I stopped to rest on a log for a minute I decided to have a snack and some water while going over my notes. I looked at my watch and it was time to move on. I came to a small creek and the water was running and making little ripples in the water. How pretty it was! It was far too wide to jump. I was thinking maybe I could find a log a little further down the creek. Maybe one would be lying across the water and I wouldn’t have to get my feet wet. About thirty yards down the creek I found one!
As I walked across the log, careful to keep my balance a big turtle jumped into the water making a loud splashing noise! I almost jumped out of my skin and slipped off the log, but I made it to the other side safe and sound. I patted myself on the back, for doing a good job making it across the creek on the log.

I looked at my watch and I was only about thirty minutes from the middle of the forest. I continued walking. The brush was getting thicker and I started moving through some heavy brush which forced me to go out of my way. Suddenly, I saw a large cone shaped object directly in front of me. I stopped dead in my tracks not moving a muscle. It was a hornets’ nest! I was scared, knowing what I had to do; I moved slowly back trying desperately not to disturb them. I got lucky. I started thinking about how badly it would have been if I had disturbed them and gotten stung by the hornets.

As I stepped into the middle of the forest it was so bright! There was a small clearing of about ten square feet. I sat down on the ground to enjoy the scenery around me. Proud of the fact that all alone I had accomplished to make it here.

One can’t ever experience what I saw unless they go there themselves. It was so beautiful!
Until next time, try to imagine the upcoming story of what I found!!!
