Musings and Daily Affirmations

What part do you like the most? The commentary or the daily affirmations?

On this day in 1962 comedian Ernie Kovacs was killed when he
crashed his Chevrolet Corvair into a light pole in Los Angeles
while driving in a rain storm. Not to minimize the tragedy for Mr.
Kovacs and his family, but that didn’t help the reputation of the
Corvair either. Just a few years later, in 1965, Ralph Nader
published Unsafe At Any Speed: The Designed in Dangers of the
American Automobile, and one of the cars he blasted without
mercy was the Corvair. Ralph had no fans in my family. We were
a Corvair family. My Aunt Jane bought a brand new Corvair in
1966, and not to be outdone by her daughter, my Grandmother
bought a new one for herself in 1968. I learned to drive in my
Grandmother’s Corvair. I loved that little car.

Daily affirmation: I can change any thought that hurts into a
reality that hurts even more.
