Thanks, Vern

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Thanks

to Den­nis An­der­son for his ex­cel­lent trib­ute to Vern Law­son.

Thanks also to Vern Law­son for his Ver­nac­u­lar col­umn.

I have en­joyed it weekly for over 20 years now.

If my math is cor­rect, Vern is on the back­side of his 90s now and still crank­ing out ex­cel­lent col­umns ev­ery week.

I don’t know how many other peo­ple can say that, but I’m sure it’s not many.

I’ve read in Bill War­ford’s col­umn that Vern Law­son wants to be writ­ing col­umns at 100.

I once hoped that I would live to be 98. I can see Vern set his sights even higher.

I be­lieve he will get there and I will be glad to bring the cham­pagne (the real stuff from France) to cel­e­brate when that mile­stone hap­pens.

Keep go­ing, Vern! You are an in­spi­ra­tion to me and many others.

Thank you for your longevity, pos­i­tive out­look and sense of hu­mor in this world of short sight­ed­ness, mi­cro-ag­gres­sions and neg­a­tiv­i­ties.

The An­te­lope Val­ley
