We Are a Mobile Society, So In What State Were You Born?

With the weather as hot as it was over the weekend, it turned out to be a "lost" weekend as far as doing the things I wanted to do. I did manage to make it to Blues in the District Friday night, and while there I ran into a guy from Hannibal who recognized me. Then I met a guy and his wife from Kansas who was there as well. Saturday, I ventured out for dinner and struck up a conversation from some people from Arkansas, Indiana and Florida. Just by chance these occurrences all took place. It almost felt like I was around more "outsiders" than "locals."  It got me to thinking about just how mobile our society is.

What Was OK in 1994 is No Longer OK in 2014

The year is 1994. You are 17 years old, using your bag cell phone, driving 40 miles an hour on Broadway in Quincy, smoking a cigarette, heading to a tanning place to make your skin golden brown in January. Suddenly, you look in your rear view mirror and there is a police car with its lights on signaling for you to pull over.

On this date in 1941 the 40 hour work week as part of the Fair Labor Standards Act went into effect. Basically five 8-hour work days began. I for one would kill for those hours but that is the nature of my business

Sometimes You Need to Put Things in Perspective

I moved to Quincy 34 years ago leaving behind my parents in Kansas City. Dad passed away in 1985 while I was on the air and Mom passed away 18 months ago and I was with her when she left us.

Olivet Cemetery and go by the old homestead.
