CUMMINS: Gather ye, the milestones


It’s good to know other people think about you, call out your name and have you walk up there to a podium. Success in life is being called to a podium. They read, “In recognition of” some small thing that we might have done. It makes us beam a little, but embarrassing when you consider what others have done. I’ve received a couple of plaques in my time. One recognized me as an Honorary Future Farmer which I should have been, or maybe a hedge fund tycoon raking it in.  

The Lord giveth, and taketh away at the last milestone. When they come to take away my driver’s license and put my name on another roll, I’ll go into politics. It seems like those guys live forever.
