 In Times Like These, The Rest of the Story

"In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these."

-- Paul Harvey, broadcaster

 

When I was a kid, I spent thousands of hours listening to an old AM radio while milking cows, and every day we could always count on gaining a little wisdom from Paul Harvey and the rest of the story.

 

Right now many are a little nervous about the pending economy and where it and our country are going, it is good to remember this advice from Paul Harvey - "In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these."

 

 

 

And then other days he had dire warnings...

Bob, terrific post, thank you for the memories.  Paul Harvey was a gift to our Country, and probably would have made a great President!

I grew up listening to Paul Harvey on the radio, and Peter Jennings on the TV with my grandfather. We need more Paul Harvey and less Miley Cyrus in our Country.

Thanks for sharing the memories. Those of us that have been around for a long time share the memories of listening to the radio for news and entertainment. Adults gathered around the radio at the news hour.

Bob, we had a radio in our Tack Room, Barn and in the main area of our Stable. Sure listen to Paul Harvey. He sure was a mighty smart man.

Bob,

As usual, your posts put a smile on my face.  I have a particular Paul Harvey memory, when I was 10 or 11, on Thanksgiving Day driving with my father to pick up pastries from his favorite bakery.  Paul Harvey was on the radio, I couldn't tell you exactly what he said.  Now EVERY time I hear his voice it reminds me of my father.

Paul Harvey was a great listen. 

I was hooked on his rest of the story at a young age.

Whenever we happen to be living...that seems to be the worst and most worrisome.....NOT. Our country has gone through far worse and come out the other side...every time. Thanks for the reminder.

Paul predicted the future. The handwriting was on the wall. So sad.
