I've been historically oriented since childhood, interested in old houses and places where things happened long ago. That's why I want to read what's on an old memorial whenever I see one!
So when I spotted this monument while driving away from a friend's remote homestead, my husband patiently stopped the truck so I could see what it was all about.
I actually ran to it, excited to uncover information that would plunge my imagination into the past.
Breathless, I read: "On this site in 1897, nothing happened."
I burst out laughing at this modern-day spoof of a time-honored old western tradition.
How many days do we feel as if "nothing" happened?
Do you like to make things happen?
Or do you prefer to read about things happening?
