It might be "useless," but I can clearly remember that day and hour.
It was late evening; I was riding in the back seat as my parents drove
home. We passed the Ford dealer and I spelled out the sign -- F O R D
-- and ask dad what it said. When he told me it was like a veil being
lifted! Letters spelled out real words, and I could decode them! I
made a real pest of myself on the rest of the way home! I could read!

I have never quit!
