I Did It My Way

Sometimes strange things just pop into my head for some odd reason. Watched a program on Public Broadcasting last night about the National Parks and the history behind them. There was the story of Glen and Bessie Hyde who attempted to navigate the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon in 1928. The thing that struck me,,,was Bessie's last words to others,. midway through the trip. She was talking with a young girl when they stopped for supplies. She noticed the young girls shoes. She commented to the young girl,,,I am afraid I shall never again have the opportunity to wear pretty shoes. She was obviously afraid. Her husband,,Mr. Macho Man,,would not hear of others advise like,,,wearing life vests or,,,having another craft go with them just in case anything went wrong. He had to do it "his way". And it not only cost him his life,,,but the life of his young wife as well. Stiff necked,,,mule headed jerkwater jack*** macho man. Had to do it "My Way".

I think it was Paul Anka who wrote that fine tune. "My Way". Ole blue eyes recorded it first. Then,,i believe Elvo recorded it as well. One of the verses goes,,,,"I" faced it all,,,and "I" stood tall,,,and did it "My" way. Sorry folks,,,just had to complain a little. When "Macho" men,,,do it "My Way",,,it usually turns out to be ****. Don't like the song,,or its message.
