    reading the diary got me thinking-
    what is dumb ?
    speechless ?
    uneducated ?
    thoughtless ?
    inconsiderate ?
    what is stupid ?
    someone else can answer that...
    I am always thankful when the pickup truck with the chainsaw    and chains shows up in the pouring night rain to help clear
    away the tree that has fallen and blocked the road
    a person can only move so much breaking off and dragging branches...
    Political and religious differences go over the bank when things have to get done.
    I have learned living in a rural environment that no matter the education or skill level someone always knows something that I don't. Thank Goodness.
    Here's hoping that the city dweller, or anyone else for that
    matter, out enjoying the country scenery or simply trying to get home, will get out and help when the path is being cleared by people that want to get where they are going. (not as well put as I would have liked).
    Thanks to all here for the input(s).
    Enjoy, best of everything to ya'll.........
