TMc: Will You Remember Me?


    Sarah McLachlan - I will remember you

    I remember the old family friend who taught me to drive his old truck. And, the old policeman in our little town who "arrested" us and sentenced neighborhood cleanup projects.

    Folks who never did anything for me or to me are long forgotten regardless of kinship. I see their names in the family history books and findagrave.com.

    Teachers who curved grades to made sure everybody passed are a beloved memory. (There was no Common Core in the 60s). I remember the shop teacher who provided tool training useful to destroy equipment at home.

    Conclusion: I taught my granddaughter to drive; she recently passed her license test and told me I promised her my old Honda three years ago. I vaguely remember saying something like that. Anyway, she now has a car. She will remember me.

Funny, you posted this, My wife and I were riding in the car the other day talking about my Grandpa's Diary stories. I told her I doubt that anyone would even bother to read them when Sara came on my wife's favorite Sirius XM with the song you linked to in your post. I told her I preferred Kenny Roger's version better. Naturally, I had to hook the iPhone up to her Audio input to play it (my 2003 Windstar does not have Sirius or the Audio hook up - but It does have a cassette / CD slot). She listened and said she still preferred Sara's version. Just another thing we choose to disagree on.

Here is Kenny's version. Now Tmac you can say you wrote a Dueling His post.
