The July-August 2014 Vintage Ford magazine lists Edward H. "Ted" Parker of Groveland, Mass. in the obituaries. Ted Parker is alive and well. Somehow his name and address were listed inadvertently.
Our apologies. We will print a retraction in the next issue of the Vintage Ford.
I hope you didn't cancel his magazine....
I wonder what Ted thought when he saw that !
You know that would scare stuff out of me that smells bad to read my own name in the obit's.Wow, what a shock he got I am sure.
Wonder if anyone filed for his S.S. benefits?
Our local undertaker sometimes comes to a local "Water Hole" that I frequent.
I always check my pulse to make sure it is not me that he is there to get.
Reading about your passing in the Vintage Ford had to be a "Shock" and maybe required pulse checking also.
I've read my name in the obits three times in my life so far.
The late Undertaker in our community (last name "Schmidt") used to always shake hands with people he greeted in an unusual way. He would put the palm of his hand over yours; placing your thumb between his fourth and 'pinky' finger; and place his thumb between your fourth and 'pinky finger. This allowed his index and middle finger to lie directly on the inside of your forearm, just about your hand; thus allowing him to check your pulse when he shook hands. this was his standard way of shaking hands. He did it with everyone.
Run that by me again. LOL
If you and I were present in the same location; I'd be glad to demonstrate the handshake. Maybe I'll try laying my hands in that position on my scanner and then I can download the picture.
