The “Old-Timer”

Age brings wisdom many say. While that may not always be true, given the person involved, I found that talking to this “old-timer” I recently met while visiting a general store high up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia to be an especially enlightening experience. For example, he never once interrupted me while I was speaking, he always kept his eyes on me thus showing interest in what I was saying, and he never once indicated he had other more important things to do than listen and apparently enjoy what I had to say…a simple visitor from the foothills below where he lived. I wish more people were like this old-timer…especially those elected to political office.
