And that scraping sound has moved from the left front wheel of my old car to the rear right and the car acts funny when i try to put on brakes and turn the wheel at the same Trine. On top of that its getting harder and harder to climb the stairs to the third floor at City Hall because i think they have added some Steps or something which Means that i have to Settle for the second floor or else ride the elevator which is about As big As a Broom closet and if you get caught on it with More than two ladies there ainu to no Way to keep somebody from getting goosed. In addition in a getting ready to go to the Beach and you know what that Means. It Means in a going to find that All my swimming trunks have shrunk so much since last summer that i can to get in them Lon ways and there goes another 15 or 20 Bucks and a crack from my wife that maybe i ought to buy the new ones at Kearns tent a awning. It Means also that the trip Down will be five hours of sheer agony while i watch All those Damn lights and dials on the dashboard and worry about them until i discover that in be taken the wrong turn again and have something new to worry about. The Only Good thing about the Way i get lost going to the Beach is that i always make the same wrong turn and that makes it easier except that my wife says in a dumb to make the same mistake and when anybody can see it is just being smart of course nobody has to Tell me that there Are some really big things to worry about like what a Hap cling in Vietnam putting All those mines in the harrs i worry about that.

Archdale a voters in the Archdale Trinity and new Market area last saturday Cowpens naturally bring out Moos i have gotten the word handed Down from a very official source that my Birthplace is to be made into a National Park. The word came not from Jov. Scott not from gov. John West of South Carolina a where my Birthplace is located a but from a Rah de Dah de Dah a president Nixon. They really should t do it. I m nig that , you know maybe half that great hut not altogether. It would have been enough to name a Street after me or perhaps the local school or maybe they could just put a statue of me in the town Square. In a not sure there a a town Square there though. And in a not perfectly sure the National Cark is being built in my Honor. But what would you think if your sometime after thirtieth birthday were yesterday and you heard that president Nixon had decreed a National Park would be built soon at the site of your birth. It could be. I admit that a few other things of importance happened there. It could be that the Little town was the site of one of the six most crucial Battles of the revolutionary War. In fact it was. I Don t mind telling you now where i was bom but i sure hated to Tell it in first Grade so i think i told the teacher it was Spartanburg the truth is that it was Cowpens. S c., and it had so happened that when i told this in kindergarten a smart Little Guy jumped and said. A give us a big Moo so after that i said spar around by Faye Marks Danburg. Which was nearby and it was t till i was in High school that i found out dear of Cowpens was famous. Now that eve heard and read about All this a the 872 acre National Park to he built in Cowpens a i have this urge to go Back and visit. This is what we re going to do this summer and my Mother is going to map out the House and Street where i was bom. My to is Don t know what to expect. I think they Halfway expect to see cows roaming the streets and people doing the milking out in the front Yards. They think ifs a Wacky place to spend a Day of vacation. I also have the feeling that if anyone asks them where they went say but i have this real desire to go there and i am going. I Don t actually expect to see one cow pen but i would like to pass a Herd or two just for the Sake of authenticity. I would like to see where they Are going to build the National Park. Too. All in be got to say is that if it turns out that the House where i was born has been Tom Down to make Way for the Park then in a going to just have to modestly face the facts. A cow is a cow and a Battle is a Battle but i think the town owes me just As much As it does those revolutionary War soldiers. They bravely faced the enemy fire and i bravely got up in kindergarten once and naively said a i was homed in Cowpens Sci and following the Little boys remark if i remember correctly everyone moved.
