People and Things I Miss

Ecclesiastes 7:10 "Do not say, 'Why were the old days better than these?' For it is not wise to ask such questions."

Okay...what is this? Type a Scripture and then proceed to violate it? How rude!

As I may have mentioned before, I'm sort of an old guy. Here are ten examples of people and things I miss from days gone by:

  1. My parents. My brother. Other family members who have passed on.

  2. Captain Kangaroo. Mr. Green Jeans. Bunny Rabbit. Mr. Moose. The Magic Drawing Board. Dancing Bear. Ping pong balls falling from the ceiling. Spongebob can't hold a jellyfish to this show.

  3. Odessa, TX Permian High School Panthers football team in their glory days. (My apologies to OHS alumni.) See Friday Night Lights.

  4. Horned toads.West Texas once had them everywhere. We could catch and release a dozen in an hour. They were easily caught and had no natural defense except to spit. My dog never killed them deliberately; she just viewed them as toys, flinging them around until they quit moving. She probably contributed to their near extinction. Or maybe they were driven off by loud music. Which reminds me of a question we've all asked ourselves many times.

  5. The fragrance of roses, before genetic engineering.

  6. Dr. Gene Scott (1929-2005) . Rated PG.

  7. Life before some people had cell phones.

  8. A coherent train of thought. (My own.)

  9. The butterfly formation at Caverns of Sonora, Texas. The only one like it in the world, damaged by unknown persons.
