It was a cool, cloudy and windy day when I went to the poppy fields Reserve west of Lancaster California. There was a man sitting on a concrete bench and I could tell by his body language that he was of a friendly and pleasant nature. My sister even suggested that I might want to talk with him.
That’s when I met Bob simply by asking him if I could sit down on the bench with him. He said he was from Hesperia California and that he was now retired.
His wife and two grandchildren had gone on walking around the corner looking at all the poppies which were not totally open due to the fact that it was a cloudy morning.
Bob said that he had lived in the area most all of his life and had traveled to the poppy fields a couple of times prior. He said he was rather tired because he was still recovering from the flu. He didn’t have the energy he needed to walk around and see all the poppies on the hillsides.
Bomb has been retired for a number of years but when he we worked he worked as a meat cutter at Vons and at Safeway. Now he and his wife travel around the country in a fifth wheel. When I asked what he liked best of all the vacation spots or tourist spots, he said he liked Mount Rushmore. He added that he did not like to rush around but to spend more time in places that they visited.

There had been times in the past when he and his wife did not really enjoy any time at each location but just spent more time driving. Now, his intention is to spend two or three days at every place they visit.
When I asked him what he would do if he ruled the world for one day, Bob replied that he wasn’t sure what he would do, because everybody is different and has different needs. He thought – maybe it would be great to just give them one day at Mount Rushmore.
