Man_-_old_man_silhouetteI stepped up on the next door neighbors porch and rang the doorbell. First there was nothing. Then the sounds came.
Ker plunk slide pause.
Ker plunk slide pause.
Ker plunk slide pause.
The Ker plunk was the sound of a light-weight object smashing a solid one. It was kind of like a foot smashing down on an aluminum can from the top down.
The door opened and there he was Boyd McCune.
Boyd is a widowed, retired farmer and the noise he makes is from his walker. The walker is necessary because he has a bad, inoperable hip joint. I would surmise that Boyd goes through daily pain that would sideline an above-average pain-tolerating person. Yet, it doesnt.
Every morning Boyd makes his way to his small red two-door Chevy pick-up truck. He drives the little red truck across town to the local coffee shop. In the City of Stafford thats called the Ampride Fuel & Convenience Center.
Boyd meets fellow retirees at the Ampride and shortly afterwards makes the ride back home. Rarely does he miss a day.
There are so many examples of great inspiration but few better than Boyd.
He inspires me every morning with every step.
