1934 Chevy Pickup

“Sold new for $465.00 including side-mounted spare wheel, it served Sierra Madre veterinarian Dr. Horace Pinehurst dutifully for decades, back when the San Gabriel Valley was still a mostly rural area. Upon the good Doctor’s passing in the late 1970s, his wife couldn’t bring herself to part with the truck, and it was put up on blocks for many years.”  (not pictured)

Mama’s favorite singer and song, Vestal Goodman, “Til the Storm Passes By” Praise God, Mama is safe from storms now.

If Mama had lived 3 months more,  she would have been 102 today.  I rejoice that instead of being in pain down here with us, she is singing in heaven with Vestal.

I miss you Mama, but know you wouldn’t come back if you had the choice.  We’ll see you and Daddy again one day, and join in the singing. 

Oh what a day  that will be!



Who is she? I don’t know, just someone in my mind.

Mama liked to see me sketch little pictures. She told me one day, “If I could draw like that I would do it all the time.”

Mama was a wonderfully creative woman and whatever I am able to do it is because of her.  She was such an encouraging person.  She made me believe I could do whatever I set my mind to. Thanks Mama.

Have you been to the pyramids in Egypt?

July 24th, 2014 No comments



I doubt if I will ever to see the pyramids, but if I do I am pretty sure I will not attempt climbing to the top.  

If I should, by some miracle, make it to the highest point, or even half-way, I’m afraid I’d have to be air-lifted down again.  (With  Dr. Ben Gaye and Dr. Phil standing by.)

 “In English,” he said, “a double negative forms a positive. However, in some languages, such as Russian, a double negative remains a negative.


 But there isn’t a single language, not one, in which a double positive can express a negative.”

A voice from the back of the room piped up, “Yeah, right.”
