Time for this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography.

 

Here are Cee’s questions for the week:

How do you like your eggs?

Pretty much any way they’re made.  Scrambled, poached, deviled, hard boiled, omelettes, on a salad, etc.  If I had to pick just one way though, it’d be fried over easy with toast to sop up.

Have you ever met anyone famous?

Yes.  But, not like mega-stars or anything, but I think most would recognize the names.  Some musicians, a few athletes and/or coaches from my alma mater, and even a well-known movie and TV producer.  He and his wife live in California, but they own a farm on the edge of our little town.  I have no clue as to why they picked here, but they did indeed, and they’re here several times throughout the year.  It’s not unusual to run into them at the pizza place or the gas station or in the antique store. They bought and renovated the row of buildings that is our “downtown”, including the Old Meeting Hall building that’s been turned into a 4-lane bowling alley and skating area, and they’ll drop in there at times as well.

But, the most “famous” person I’ve ever met was Muhammad Ali.  He’s from my hometown, and even though he lived in Michigan until the last few years of his life, he was home often.  It just so happened that he frequented the restaurant I waited tables at during college.  I was lucky enough to have his table a few times, and he was exactly how you’d think he was.  Funny and quick with a smile and fake jab for a photo op.  You’d think he’d be intimidating, but he made it engaging instead.  I never asked for his autograph nor a picture.  It was cool enough just to talk to him.

What was the first thing you bought with your own money?

I had a paper route for about two years, when I was about 10.  It didn’t pay much, and it took some saving, but my first purchase with that money was for a turntable.  Then most every penny after that went for records.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

I appreciated the ignition of a fire and ferocity in this younger generation, which was on full display this past week.   They get a bum rap as being entitled and tech dependent, or even laziness.  I don’t believe that’s true.  I think they’re simply wise to the bullshit, and highly informed, while being uninspired by playing the game.  However, now they are inspired, and they’re pissed off…and a whole bunch who have a vote.  I believe this country is ripe for a revolution, and I have a feeling these kids are gonna be the life-force behind it.

 

My songs of the day are:

“The Revolution Starts Now” by Steve Earle

“Revolution” by The Derek Trucks Band

“The Revolution Will Be Televised” by Jeff Beck

“Can’t Kill The Revolution” by Rage Against The Machine

“Revolutionize Your Soul” by Susan Tedeschi

“Children Of The Revolution” by Violent Femmes

“Revolution” by The Beatles

“Revolution Come, Revolution Go” by Gov’t Mule

  1. Muhammad Ali! That’s awesome! I wish I could remember what my first purchase was… I didn’t get my first job until late. We lived so far out in the boonies it was nearly impossible to find an after school job. Unless you count the chores I did for my allowance money. 😃 And yes to the young people! They’re determined and they’re organized; it’s really cool to see!

    • Thanks. Yeah, he was very genuine. Probably the most easily recognized human on the planet, yet was the most genuine guy. It was cool just chatting with him a bit here and there.

  4. I felt exactly the same way about the kids marching and taking a stand. Maybe they can change things for the better!

  5. That’s so cool .Famous person I ran into was Kylie Minogue. It was back in my younger student days when we went shopping for clothes at factory outlets on Bridge Rd. She was there and she was tiny. Probably my height and frame. Never went up just thought she needed space.
