Seattle, WA CarrierRates.com Week 10 Discussion - Eisenhower, a car, and an ISR

One or our ISR’s (Independent Sales Reps) has the delight of meeting former President Dwight D. Eisenhower back in 1966 when he was about 14 years old. Imagine the thrill that must of gripped this young man! Who among us hasn’t ever met someone famous in his or her lives? Sometimes just that chance meeting is enough to point that person in another and maybe more positive direction in their lives. The person may also be a negative figure. A friend of mines’ father had a chance meeting as a naval attaché with Adolf Hitler in 1938 in Berlin. This inspired him to fight fascism with a fervor that was almost unheard of in those days. Inspiration takes many forms and hopefully comes from a positive source. The car? A 1965 Lincoln Limousine that weighed almost 9,000 lbs. Even ex-presidents get steel reinforced cars. Riding in this car was one of the thrills of his life!

Next week: Cooking a Chicken on your Manifold?!

We here at CarrierRates hope you have a meaningful and successful week.
