Never Judge A Book By It's Cover
That saying is sooo true. A few weeks ago we went to a Historical meeting in my hometown. A man spoke about the oil boom there years ago. He gave out phamplets with info. about that subject. We were surprised to learn that boom went all the way from my hometown to south of the town we live in now. We didn't know it was so extensive. John has a friend who lives in the country near his hometown and John wanted to take this info. to the man. He knew he would enjoy reading it as he is in his 80's now and has had cancer. He was in the oil business and probably already knew all this but would be interesting to refresh his memory. I'm always amazed at this couple as John has told me how wealthy they are. You could never tell by the way they live. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with the way they live I'm just saying---. I don't know what I'm saying, I'm just amazed. Their house is very modest, they drive nice vehicles but not what you would think a wealthy person would drive. She is a horder, she saves everything because there is not an ounce of space on her kitchen cabinets. I know she cooks but how she does it I do not know. I'm saying box after box just barely fitting on the cabinets. The same on the refrigerator and freezer. Oh well to each his own, it would drive me crazy to not have any space. The visit was nice. They are so interesting to listen to especially the man. Even though he is in his 80's and as I said had cancer he is still very sharp. He is very opinionated about politics and says so. He has interesting stories to tell about the offers he has had to go in business from people who know they have money. He studies and considers and usually says no thank you. He might be older but he didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday.
