Velta & Travis Case
As B. O. Plenty would tell Dick Tracy, "My life
started when I was very young. I was one of seven brothers......" Well, unlike B. O.
Plenty, I only had one brother and he is younger than I. It may only be by 12 minutes, but
it still give me the right to call him my "kid" brother. Even though he is
young, he is a deacon in a Baptist Church and has worked with teenagers for the past 40
years. I am proud of him, but I can still beat him in golf. Like two birds sitting on a
wire, we were always switching places and confusing people as to which of us were which.
My brother is the one sitting still. I was always the mischievous one getting into
trouble. Under my picture in my Senior High Year Book they put: "If school could be
all pleasure, he'd take a post graduate course." Well, what can I say, I am guilty. I
love and enjoy life.
I have one wife, three daughters, three sons-in-law and six grandkids.
All of which are the greatest in the world. I love them all dearly. My wife says that if
she had known how much joy grandkids are, she would have had them first. I agree. Hence, the cute little fellow below. My wife is always trying to get me
to stop drinking coffee, but I still like it. We have been married for 37 years and if
she, or coffee, doesn't kill me, we plan on making it to 50. I enjoy hunting, fishing,
bowling, golf, Amateur Radio, and flying. I got my pilots license in 1962 but my wife
would never let me sky dive. Neither does she want to fly with me because she is afraid of But It Won't.
Well, I have never been asked for a resume by any church I have every
pastored but the chaplaincy work has required it. I had to look the word up in the
dictionary to find out what it was that that they wanted. I thought that it mean to resume
what I was doing. At least thats what happened when I pushed the one on my car while
driving the expressways. I am also told that since few people on the internet knows me, I
needed to include my resume. If you don't have anything better to do and have extra time
on your hands, go ahead and read it.
Did anyone see where my ball went. I must have hit it out of sigh.
