Robert, in New York, sent along some thoughts that I am happy to repost. Thanks for the note, Robert.
I was born before World War 2
Food was scarce Do not remember much growing up,
At age 16 I started to eat Hot Dogs when I worked in New York City.
There was a little Sabrett hot dogs stand on the corner of the Custom House.
A hot dog was $.15 cents and the soda was a dime.
I would help the little old Greek lady set up.
After getting out of the Army I went back to work and she remembered me.
The prices changed but she still sold me a hot dog and soda for the same price.
Now at 76 …… I am still eating Sabrett Hot Dogs.
Why is it that you receive something that says you ‘won’ and then they ask you for money to send it.
Some of us try to help others –
I volunteer at a hospital.
All I have is my old 9-11 memorial Harley and a hell of a lot of memories.
If you dislike Firemen – Soldiers – Policemen, you are a fool or Terrorist ….if not for them you would not be here….
I was a Volunteer Fireman age 18, Soldier age 21, EMS Policeman age 25.
God Bless us all.
