A Revolutionary Automobile
I vaguely remember seeing one when I was a young boy. I hope my memory doesn’t fail me, but I remember that Dad pointed one of these cars out on Chapman Highway in Knoxville, Tennessee. I remember it impressed me because it was modern looking for the time, and it had three (3) headlights. The middle one turned with the steering wheel to light the way for you on a turn. The picture of the Tucker is from Wikipedia and you can read more about this car at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1948_Tucker_Sedan
I thought it was interesting that only 51 of these cars where produced before it folded in 1951. There was a movie produced in 1988 about this auto and the man who created it. Read more about it here:
Some told me recently that “Bad decisions make good stories. “ It made me think about times when I was going through a bad situation, when I realized that sometime later I would be laughing about it while telling the story. You ever done that?
in order that I may learn how to do it.
Joke of the Day
Two old Jewish men, Sid and Al, are sitting in a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles . One day Sid asks Al, "Do you know of any people of our faith born and raised in Mexico ?"
Al replies, "I don't know, let's ask our waiter." When the waiter arrives, Al asks, "Are there any Mexican Jews?" The waiter says, "I don't know, Senor, I ask the cook." He returns from the kitchen a few minutes later and says, "No, Senor, the cook say no Mexican Jews."
Al isn't satisfied and asks, "Are you absolutely sure?" The waiter, realizing he is dealing with 'Gringos,' replies, "I check once again, Senor." While the waiter is away, Sid says, "I find it hard to believe that there are no Jews in Mexico . Our people are scattered everywhere. The waiter returns and says, "Senor, the head cook say there is no Mexican Jews." Al asks, "Are you certain? I just can't believe there are no Mexican Jews."
The exasperated waiter says, "Senor, I ask EVERYONE. All we have is Orange Jews, Grape Jews, Prune Jews and Tomato Jews.
(The above joke reminded me of the time when we were dining in a local Mexican Restaurant. We had spent time in Mexico and as we were eating we were wondering what type of cheese they used. We were guessing it was Manchego or some other variety. So we asked the server to check for us. He returned after a visit to the kitchen and told us it was Land O’Lakes. Ooookay.)
