    Geronimo Driving a Car

    I happened upon this photo and short article about Native American Chief Geronimo driving a car in 1905:

    Which started me to thinking....

    Do you suppose if Geronimo ever went skydiving, he would yell "MEEEEEEEE!" as he jumped out of the plane?

    My grandfather often spoke of seeing Geronimo in person when he was a child.. I don't remember him mentioning that Geronimo drove a car but perhaps he did not know that. He was 16 when Geronimo died. Fascinating!
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    How many times as kids did we yell Geronimo. Cool Pic
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    What I wonder about is what people yelled before his name became the motto.
    Best regards,
