Last Thursday I checked out for a small vacation to see friends in Los Angeles. Checking out means I didn’t pay attention to emails or get overly concerned about the hot article of the day or what was trending on social media.
The only thing I was concerned about was catching up with good friends and of course watching the Super Bowl.
My college roommate and I ended up watching the Super Bowl in a very crowded bar on the Hermosa Beach pier.
I saw this during the game but there was no sound to it in the bar:
However, I saw Paul Harvey‘s name and knew it had to be neat.
Paul Harvey, to me, was a staple of grass seed harvest while growing up. You could always count on Paul Harvey’s Rest of the Story to let you know the day was almost done in the combine or swather.
Of course you would also learn a little known fact or back story about someone famous. The stories are timeless and numerous. Check them out if you never heard one and you will not be sorry.
Shortly after the commercial was over my twitter started going off. Then I realized it was a poem read by Paul Harvey oh so long ago, On the 8th Day, God Made a Farmer.
When I got back to reality today I could actually watch and realize how truly awesome the commercial is. I am not a Dodge girl, prefer a Ford, but I will definitely give them a second glance next time I vehicle shop.
Thanks Dodge Ram for supporting Farmers and Ranchers.
On a similar note I saw the below on a menu in California. It made me smile. Apparently 2013 is the year of the farmer. Cheers to that!
