Around 70 years ago in a beautiful park high above the Mississippi River -- a picturesque setting for my idea of perfect contentment -- I was just soaking in so much that God has put on this great green earth for us to enjoy. Yes, some of my friends were in bars and chatting with beautiful women on streets nearby, possibly enjoying things that never interested me including marijuana cigarettes for just 50 pennies, but this sailor just wanted to put his white hat on the back of his head (not squared over the forehead as required) and enjoy the magnificent breezes off the Mississippi, gander at all the vehicles on that seemingly endless Mississippi River Bridge, watch logs floating by with a carp jumping here and there.
