Nov 17, 2017 - 11:12 AM ET. - THE SOUTHERN WAY OF LIFE.

**YESTERDAY. Published my main blog about doctors and collections of 10 

Tweets and 10 Quotes, ETC. 

My followup appointment to see Dr. Steiner at the Wooster Eye Center went well,

he saying that the surgery on my right eye to remove a cataract, to implant a 

lens and a stent was healing nicely. 

After that we went to Walmart, just down the road, to do our grocery shopping 

for the month, the total purchases about $440.00. 

I always watch a crime program on TV while I'm eating supper. I know that 

'Criminal Minds,' who are entering their 12th season is very popular, but the 

show has become to violent for me. My favorite now is 'Law and Order,' Criminal

Intent.'

**TODAY. I haven't driven to Orrville for a while, not needing anything 

specifically, but I need to go today to pickup some prescription medications at 

Rite Aid, Bell Stores Marathon to fill up the Honda and then to Buehler's Fresh 

Foods for some grocery items that we forgot to buy yesterday at Walmart.

WHAT'S ON MY MIND TODAY

**I grew up in the south, "yes mam" and "no mam" were mandatory. 

From the first few years after my birth, I was taught by the example from my 

parents to be always polite and helpful to everyone. I was expected to be polite 

everyday, "no ifs, ands or buts" (a phrase beginning in the 1600's). 

Although I'm an older man now, I carry on this same tradition today in being 

polite and helpful to everyone. I say "yes mam," "no mam," "yes sir,"no sir," and 

open doors for women and children. If a woman hesitates about going first, I say

to her "you know the rule, ladies first."

To those who did not grow up in the south, like many here in northeastern Ohio,

I'm not saying your life is less polite than mine, but I'm just saying that I'm 

glad that I was born and raised in the southern way of life. 

In the end, I'm fortunate that I grew up in the south because I enjoy immensely 

my right to be helpul and polite.
