There’s a lot of good news about being a man and it’s all around us. Each week this feature will bring you a quote, a video and maybe an internet link to an example of men being good at being men.
This week we have a good quote which kept me out of a tight spot and we have Christopher Walken’s “The Lion Speech” from the 2002 movie, “Pool Hall Junkies”.
But I must tell you about the instrument cluster on my truck.
I drive a 2006 F350 4×4 Super Duty. It’s a great truck. Recently the instrument cluster started flickering and fading to black. Not always. Just sometimes. I Googled “2006 F350 Instrument Cluster … “ and Google auto populated “Problems” so I knew I’d get a good hit.
Google took me to PowerStrokeNation.com. First of all that’s a great name for a website, but once on there I read an account of a man on an odyssey… a man trying to solve the same problem I have on his own 2007 F250… and it was so much fun reading I figured I’d include it, too.
Men solving problems. It’s what men do.
“A tough man can get out of a tight spot, but a smart man never gets in one”
I was driving down the road and a guy was riding my bumper honking his horn. I immediately started sizing him up, preparing for a confrontation. Then I remembered this quote and decided to pull into the right hand lane, slow down and let him pass me. When I arrived safely home to my wife and children, I thought of the quote again.
One of my Ten Best Men emailed me this video with the note, “I don’t know why but this video made me think of you.” After I watched the video I was very grateful for the compliment.
