Murdo Girl…Oceans away

Here is the way my mind works. Or maybe I should say…doesn’t work. This is pretty profound and thought-provoking, so get ready.

I often wonder what the world would be like if everyone who ever lived was no more intelligent than I am. That is a pretty scary thought. Would we even have electricity? Could a million me(s) come up with the light bulb? Would America have been discovered? Would there have been pilgrims? Could the me(s) have been able to design and build a ship? There are countless things that would never have happened, and very little would have been accomplished.

Just think! There would be no televisions or telephones. We might have a horse and a tent. Yes, we would all probably be living in tents without the heat of a fire. We wouldn’t have any kind of medicines or good food, either.

What about written or recorded language? Nope. A million me (s) might have gotten together and come up with some kind of sign language, but there would be no songs or singers. That sounds terrible.

People would never stray very far from home with just a horse and a tent. Besides, I’m terrible with directions. I never know what direction I’m going, so I (I mean we) would be forever lost if we strayed too far.

If you read Murdo Girl Memories, you would know that Roni Poppe tried to teach me how to sew, and it didn’t end well. I would never have been able to come up with the needle and thread idea. Who did? Do you know? I’m terribly modest, so we would have akways had some sort of clothing, though I can’t imagine what.

The good news is, we would all have pets. That is a natural for me. Sorry, I can’t think of any other good news.

What would the world be like? I don’t think we want to know. That’s why God made the highly intelligent. We should all be grateful for them.

Next question: What do you think it would be like to attend your own funeral like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn did? Just kidding…

The above is the result of people like Kip and me who have this beautiful RV spot right on the ocean in Corpus Christi, and we’ve barely been on the beach. Other than for a brief time this morning when I took the photo below, we have not seen the ocean or the sun.

Tomorrow we go to Rockport. At least we have friends there who are highly intelligent.

    It would be a busy world with so many of you. You sure do come up with the craziest… uh..most ingenious ideas, Cuz.
    Looking forward to July and Murdo, if we’re able.

      So why don’t you make me cry? Thanks sweet friend. I needed that! Love and miss you!

      There would be for sure. I have 2 on my lap right now and one of them has a head as big as a basketball! You would be the pet caregiver promoter, too.

    A million Mary’s would be delightful! We would always have a smile, a new intriguing story, and a dear friend who is always ready to help in every situation we find ourselves! Give yourself more credit! You bring joy and laughter to everyone you meet and we are all blessed to call you friend. Love you❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Mary, this is something I have never thought of before..An intriguing thought trip. I guess we would not be talking right now, either!!! Was that nearly raw bacon on the plate? Did you send it back? And raw potatoes? The last shot is gorgeous. Sunset or sunrise??? Hope to see you in July. xooxo

      I ate the avocado toast that was under all of the wilted spinach and one piece of bacon was good. I hope we can spend some time together in July. I know you will be pretty busy. I will be in Murdo, but I’m not going to Mesa next month are you?
