Just some thoughts:
“YOU CAN’T OUTRUN”
When my wife is not with me and it is around lunch time I often look for one of them off beat type places.
In the south and Midwest they are called “Meat and Three.” If it is noon time and you can see their parking lot and if you see a number of pick-up trucks, pull in. Chances are some one as you walk in the door may greet you with “Honey, you sit where ever you want and I’ll be with you in a minute.”
Recently I stopped in such a place. I had been in this little town playing their nine hold golf course and before I headed back home thought I would stop for lunch. As I sat down at a table a lady brought me some ice tea and said, “today’s specials are on that board.” She was referring to a blackboard above the cash register. I gave her my order but I was even more impressed by what was written on the blackboard below the special of the day. Written was this:
“You can run quicker than an old man,
but for his wisdom and words, you are far
You know that might be a pretty good thing to put on some three by five cards and see that they are passed out/ especially at some particular locations.
And not cause I am an old man.
