  • Feeling a bit melancholy

    Went out today to Virgil Marples place to look at some cars and parts for a few SDC members. Got to look at all the cars one last time and visit with his widow and daughters. As I was leaving after a few goodbye hugs it hit me that unless I have to go back to pick up parts to ship I was not ever returning. The land is sold,the cars and parts will be auctioned off by next weekend. Many happy memories as well as a reminder that nothing lasts forever.

    So true. We must make the best of the time we have, and never miss an opportunity to let people we love know that we love them.

      As has been said many times in many ways, we are all only here for a little while. All we really have is this breath, this heartbeat.

        Agreed. We remember the past and hope for the future, but have to remember to savor the present. It slips away fast.
