Sitting here reflecting on my time spent in Maui . I fly out in a few days . What a great country we live in . I’m proud of it and all that it represents . I want to say something that is different on my usual stories on here ! I grew up with very little in material things . So I really appreciate what I have and what I’ve been able to do . When I broke my femur as an 8 year old I was in a double cast . We never owned a vehicle to get me home from the hospital so my brother Sonny drove me home in the back of his pickup . They put a mattress in there . After all the weeks in the hospital the fresh air and blue sky was wonderful. A few years later I almost died from Quinzy (spelling ) then ground my finger off ! Our house burned down . We lost close to 40 head of horses to loco weed . In the 1960s the Government shot and killed 15000 elk in Yellowstone Park . That had a huge impact on our livelihood . Tough times But we had the freedom to start over and most importantly the desire! I am 1/8 Indian not much but as much as many whining about how we’ve been mistreated . I don’t feel that way . A few years ago two weeks of our hunting season was taken away . The profitable ones .Rather than cry and go protest at the Capiatol I started another business ! . After fighting for it and losing I was able to buy Jardine and develop ten acres to help pay for my losses . I’ve never held a picket sign disrupted people’s lives or made huge political statements . I’ve never missed voting and have never tried to disrupt any President running the country . I believe election time is for that . The reason I told about my early years is that if you work hard anything is possible . But here is what I really want to say for my children and grandchildren and all future generations . I respect our fore fathers so much . I know personally what it’s like to struggle physically emotionally . I’ve held Aimee’s hand as a three year old and fought back the tears and told her the doctor said it’s like taking a sliver out when he operates on your heart . I told her as I used every ounce of courage that your Johnson and we never give up ever . I was so damn scared but I never let it show . Because she was ours we brought her into this world and by God I’ll die protecting both of my children . If she needed my heart there is no hesitation . Five open heart surgeries I held her and was there for her . I never cared what the cost was . When in Denver at the Children’s hospital I picked up cans to sell to make a few dollars . We needed every cent . But we were free to make it . I’ve never in my life said this but if you are for killing babies after they are born please unfriend me now . I have Republican friends Democrat friends lndependent friends and I respect all as long as they are respectful to others . I hate bullies deadbeat parents ! So with that said I love my country and respect my fellow man but I have done my research and if you are a socialist or think America should go in that direction please unfriend me on here . I don’t care to discuss it or argue on here about it . As a child and adult I’ve had everything thrown at me that could be thrown and I persevered . I give back as much as I can to my neighbors country animals needy people . Before I leave Maui I’m cleaning up the beach that I’ve so enjoyed . It’s not too bad but needs some cleaning . So if you are a socialist please say adios .
