Subject: RE: BS: Remember President Truman
Well, nuthin' can top the Capt's initial post but, as per usual, the ol' hillbilly has his own Truman story...

I think it was around 1954 and my dad was workin' for Ford Motor Company as a district rep and that meant that all kinda of situations presented themselves and a 1946 Lincoln Limo that Truman was driven around in became available thru one of the dealers my dad knew and... thing led to another and or next door neighbors, the Bookers, ended up buying Truman limo and so I kinda grew up ridin' in the back of it, always with half a dozen kids, while my mom and Nan Booker sat up front with the electric window up between the front and back to separate us kids from them...

Now back to our regularly scheduled thread...
