Real Men Haul Real Loads

Author: Jim Hagarty

I am a 65-year-old retired journalist, busy recovering from a lifelong career as an unretired journalist. This year marks a half century of my scratching out little fables about life. My interests include genealogy, humour and music. I live in a little blue shack in Canada and spend most of my time trying to stay out of trouble. I am not that good at it. I also spent years teaching journalism. Poor state of journalism today: My fault. I have a family I don't deserve, a dog that adores me, and two cars the junk yard refuses to accept. My prized possessions include my old guitar and a razor my Dad gave me when I was 14 and which I still use when I bother to shave. Oh, and my great-great-grandfather's blackthorn stick he brought from Ireland in the 1850s. I have only one opinion but it is a good one: People take too many showers.

      1. In the part of the world where I live, you see this sort of ridiculousness all the time. A lot of men are plain idiots. A while back, I saw a grandfather driving a tractor down the highway with the loader in the air. Sitting in the load were a young boy and girl. If he was stopped, which I hope he was, he would have been shocked to have been told there was anything wrong with that.
