When I was a child I wanted to be a sanitation worker. In the good ole days, before political correctness butted into our lives, we just called them garbage men. Throughout most of my childhood I was convinced that I wanted to be a garbage man. In the summer time they hung off the back of the big trucks and all the kids would wave at them. They were the coolest guys around. Unfortunately I never made it on to the big truck.
When I was a child I dreamed of being a shepherd boy in Israel like in Testament times. It was literally a dream! Weird dream. Nope, guess not. Maybe that's my true calling in life! Thanks for the reminder!
