Lost in Time

John Gottschalk, former CEO of Omaha World-Herald told the Readers’ Digest the following quaint story:

Last summer we drove our 1915 Ford Model T to an antique automobile show in a neighboring town. When we arrived, I was told that a business client wanted me to visit him at his nearby farm. Later that day we set out.

Unfamiliar with the roads, I stopped my vintage automobile, got out and walked up to a local resident who was mowing his lawn.

“I believe I’m a little lost,” I began.

The man looked from me to the Model T. “You certainly are, mister,” he agreed. “This is 1986!”
